Thanks

This is one powerful testmonial from swift boat veterans from Vietnam.

Runs 1 hour and 21 minutes but is about as powerful as it gets.

100% of the speakers state. John KERRY is NOT capable of being commander in chief.

ENJOY

Thanks for posting.
Excellent news conference.
The "Swifties" feel the same way I do, that Kerry betrayed them and all Viet Nam veterans by his words and actions.

I think the most scathing comment was made by the Rear Admiral of the "Swifties" last night who said that Kerry was not qualified to be commander-in-chief and that Kerry "bugged-out" of Nam!

That is about the most damning remark a military man can say outside of he "deserted"...
With those remarks,
I think Kerry is T O A S T !

>>>This is one powerful testmonial from swift boat veterans from Vietnam.<<<

Totally agree that this is the kind of stuff that we should shove down the MSM's (mainstreammedia) throat until they show it.

You can see the anger, the sorrow, and the truth in every one of the guys that testified against Kerry in this news conference.

Its dynamite.....we need to help it do more collateral damage than it is currently.

I agree, it was pretty scathing .. the other one was about Kerry suffering multiple personalities

Imagine if 200 plus "Band of Brothers" came out against Bush, what the coverage would be. Kerry gets about 6 that support him and they're all over the news.

I was especially impressed at how these guys -- uncoached by media 'handlers' -- easily swatted away repeated leading questions suggesting their ties with the Bush campaign. What else could they do, question them on the veracity of their allegations?

Pretty damning stuff. Expect this story to die quickly; not with the cosmic vibrations, man...

Similar with the Leftist-leaning 9-11 Commission. About a half-dozen '9-11 families' are presented as representing ALL 9-11 families. When a different 30-some families spoke out against the 9-11 Commission bias, the media hardly mentioned them.

And it will only get more egregious in the coming weeks leading up to the election.

You're quite welcome. We had some concerns early on that the whole Vietnam issue would never come off the back burner, but now with Kerry spending megabucks on "Did you Know I Was In Vietnam?" media buys, and with the Swift boat guys launching howitzers at Kerry, we find ourselves standing on the main nerve.

Buried with the H. Clinton story. WE have to make it news since our media won't.

Here ya go .. this thread has an audio version of it

A DECLARATION OF WAR AGAINST THE LEFTIST MEDIA

"It is a fact that in the entire Vietnam War we did not lose one major battle.
We lost the war at home and at home John Kerry was the field general"
- Bob Elder, Swift Boat Veteran For Truth

I have placed the audio from the Swift Boat Veterans For Truth news conference online (Windows Media format for dial-up or better connections) for anyone who has not yet heard the moving testimonies of those who commanded and/or fought along side John Kerry.

I watched the entire tape and I am astonished how the press is so brain-dead. Not that I didn't already know that, but it almost seems that they did not know what questions to ask. Being such a compasionate conservative, I really feel their pain. I can imagine how it must feel to be so stupid. Thus, out of my never ending munificence I have come up with a couple questions that every reporter in the world should ask.

Given that John Kerry has admitted to committing war crimes, and in light of the abuses Iraq, what type of credibility does John Kerry bring to the White House?

How would foreign nations react to the United States having a self-admitted war criminal?

Today, there are number of soliders that will be tried for the abuses they commited in Iraq, and if found guilty they will go to jail and lose their jobs in the military. Since John Kerry committed war crimes, shouldn't John Kerry resign from the Senate and stop running for President? (This last one should only be asked in late October. lol)

I may have missed it, but has RUSH talked about this conference? All I have heard this week is talk about Iraq prisoner abuse.

I also haven't heard any of the conservative talk hosts here in Charlotte talk about this conference, so I mailed them the info, and hope they will listen to the C-span video.

This should the THE TOPIC of the week! We should make it the TOPIC of next week and drown out the Iraq prisoner stuff. Hopefully, the local talk shows will bring these veterans on the radio shows as guest speakers soon..
