"There is no one better prepared to keep the American people safe than this man. And if you have any question what John Kerry is made of, just spend three minutes with the men who served with him 30 years ago who still stand by his side. [Emphasis added.] They saw up close that this man is a leader and he has courage, determination and he would never leave any American behind."

KERRY SWIFTBOAT-VET FRAUD!
 
(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

"I do not believe John Kerry is fit to the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States.

This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgment, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty and trust all absolute tenets of command. His biography, Tour of Duty , by Douglas Brinkley, is replete with gross exaggerations, distortions of fact, contradictions and slanderous lies. His contempt for the military and authority is evident by even the most casual review of this biography.

He arrived in country with a strong anti-Vietnam War bias and a self-serving determination to build a foundation for his political future.

He was aggressive, but vain and prone to impulsive judgment, often with disregard for specific tactical assignments.

He was a 'loose cannon.'

In an abbreviated tour of four months and 12 days and with his specious medals secured, Lt. J.G. Kerry bugged out of Vietnam and began his infamous betrayal of all US soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen, including our POWs in the Vietnam War. His leadership in the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, his testimony before Congress in 1971, charging us with unspeakable atrocities remain as undocumented but nevertheless malicious stain on the men and women who honorably stayed the course.

Senator Kerry is not fit to command. The real 'brothers' are my shipmates and veterans who reliably and honorably stayed the course."

--Admiral Hoffman, United States Navy

 

I'm here representing my late father, Admiral Zumwalt and my brother, Lt. J.G. Elmo Zumwalt who was a swift boat commander in Vietnam.

If Lt. Kerry failed to heed the commandments of his military superiors 36 years ago, whom will he heed as president? It surely will not be the electorate who voted him into office.

Senator Kerry has demonstrated a dangerous propensity to slip into multiple personalities depending on the audience he is addressing. This was clear of his Vietnam service and his actions upon returning home. It has been clear as a senator in his actions on various issues related to Iraq.

It is a personality disorder that will endanger America in the event that he is elected president.

-- Lt. Col. Jim Zumwalt, U.S. Marine Corps, retired

 

 

I served in '66 and '67 on my first tour of duty in Vietnam on swift boats and I did my second tour in '68 and '69, involved with John Kerry in the last 2 1/2 months of my tour.

The John Kerry that I know is not the John Kerry that everybody else is portraying..

I served alongside him and behind him, five feet away from him as third class gunner's mate, and watched as he made indecisive moves with our boat, put our boats in jeopardy, put our crews in jeopardy.

If a man like that can't handle a 6-man crew boat, how can you expect him to be our commander in chief?

--Steve Gardner

 

MORE STATEMENTS BY KERRY'S COMMANDERS AND CREWMATES
DETAILING THE UNFITNESS AND DANGER OF JOHN KERRY

 

ymmetry of a plaintive (if not a plaintiff) sort:
Ambulance-chaser extraordinaire, John Edwards' first job as John Kerry's running mate is that of Kerry
defense lawyer.

The man who made his millions as a plaintiff's pettifogger should feel right at home on the other side of the aisle. He will doubtless work it with the same syrupy Southern drawl and Southern-belle eye flutter. He will surely continue to confect out of whole cloth his requisite villains and victims, in this case, respectively, Bush/Cheney + the haves, and (notwithstanding Kerry's missus' billions and Edwards' own multi-millions) Kerry/Edwards + have-nots, i.e., the "two Americas," (although the too "pessimistic" shibboleth, itself, has apparently been stricken from the Edwards script).

In place of the junk science and no less shoddy so-called expert witnesses he regularly employed to sway credulous juries, Edwards will use on an equally credulous subset of the electorate the standard demagogic techniques of the run-of-the-mill (even if "son-of-a-millworker") leftist politico: lies, illogic, sleight of hand and, to make it all go down, a splash of snake oil.

Who could have guessed. It's not easy to guess, for I don't believe he was there more than 4 months and no one ever heard of him until he came home. He used to be a dippy-hippy.

I feel a deep sense of betrayal ....

condemned and maligned the service of Good Men ....

offered aid and comfort to our nation's enemies ....

saw to it that although our Armed Forces lost not one Vietnam Battle that those he served defeated us on the gutless, long-haired, maggot-infested, pot smoking hippy-wastrel infected battlefields at Kent State, at NYU and at UCLA ....

offered our enemies aid and comfort then -- and offers it now ....

requires constant supervision ....

required it then and requires it now -- and has hand picked a predatory, lying, looting, thieving trial liar for the job?

Hand jobbed, more likely.

The most disgusting thing about all this is that at least 95% of American voters do not know what all these military men say negatively about Kerry .......... thanks to America's greatest, most diligent enemy, the socialist mainstream media (and their lying brothers in our schools and universities).

This country is no longer a free country when the great majority of people are still being influenced by a Pravda-like mainstream media. If, because of the continual distortions, neglect, and lying of the mainstream media Kerry and his ilk win in November, you can kiss this country goodbye. Personally, I think this country has been missing for a long time already. This country is unrecognizable from the country of the 40's and 50's.

The fact that there has been no truth (to the general public) coming from the mainstream media about events like Flight 800, OKC, Flight 587, Waco, Gorelick's Wall, CFR., etc., etc. tells me that this country is on a fast ride to the end. There are too few MEN in media and government any longer, and consequently goodness is drained from the nation (Michael Savage warned about the danger of a big government/big media cabal about 7 years ago).

If the Dems./media win in November the country may be unretrievably lost. The all-important judgeships will move even more left, class warfare will become even stronger and destructive (it will become even more difficult to ever pass a tax reduction), and sanity will keep disappearing more and more each day. The country will become intolerable to any reasonable, thinking citizen.

The mainstream media is the greatest, most diligent enemy of the country, and because they continue to have the ears of most of the people in the year 2004, the present and future are perilous.

The RNC or a conservative group must come out with a series of ads right before the election for the general public about what these Swift Boat Vets know and think of John Kerry.

Very well-thought-out, articulate, and right-on-target post, Beyond the Sea! Some people, for some reason, tend to underestimate the power over people's minds the Lamestream Media wields; everything they do is to shape public opinion, to change people's perception of things, to make evil seem to be good, and good seem to be evil. Thank God you, and others, see through their distortions and outright lies!

There is NOTHING the demonrats and the traitors in the media will stop at in their mad zeal to secularize and socialize (communize!) this good country! The 'rats must be defeated at all costs, and I pray our Lord to strengthen our Republicans in their battle for the soul and life of this nation!

Yeh, that ad is everywhere, and it is continuing to fake out most Americans. This old vet is pissed too. ;-)

I hope this is not confusing, but ....... I have often said about the mainstream media today - If there were a terrible earthquake somewhere in South America killing 50,000 people and injuring so many more and the mainstream media did not report it, what would Americans do to try to aid the eathquake victims? Well, nothing of course, because they don't know there are victims to aid.

Well, along the same lines, we have polls now showing that a majority of Americans think the booming economy is in a DOWNTURN - why, because of the mainstream media. They just don't report what they don't want to, and they get away with it.

Same with Kerry and the opinion of Kerry of most Vets in the country. We all hate the bast*rd and what he did. He's a lying sack of sh*t, and the Swift Boat Vets must be heard....... right before the election, in an ad that saturates the country, especially the swing states. The RNC or some conservative group must do this or we lose.

The swift boat vets cannot afford such a campaign. The RNC and Bush-Cheney and any other allied group must saturate the country with these facts. Immediately.

With the 24-hr news cycle, an increasingly ignorant electorate and the conventional media actively pushing for Kerry, no longer even pretending to be objective, Kerry-Edwards disinformation takes root overnight

Where is the Bush-Cheney rapid-response team? Where is the rapid-response effort? Where is the offensive effort that could easily slash the feet from under this goon and his 'mate'?

Where are Bush's and Cheney's drive to win?

Where do Bush and Cheney demonstrate an understanding of the REAL STAKES in this election? (To watch them, one could easily conclude they believe losing is an acceptable option. If Cheney dropping out is what is required to ensure victory, then Cheney must go. If Cheney has any sense of this greater, collective loyalty to America, he will take himself out... (Stay in the adminimstration, but please, leave the ticket.)

The only loyalty relevant to the discussion is loyalty to the presidential oath. Will Bush be preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States if Kerry (and the terrorists) win?,

I served in Vietnam from September 1968 to September 1969, six months ofwhich was with this honored bunch of people, many of whom are here today.

I signed that letter because I, too, felt a deep sense of betrayal: Someone who took the same oath of loyalty as I did as an officer for the US Navy would abandon his group here to join this group here and come home and attempt to rally the American public against the effort that this group was so valliantly pursuing.

You know, 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.

Only last week--or two weeks ago I saw on television where, when asked to respond for his support for the Iraq war, he said, "I cannot imagine going to war without the support of the American people. The same man who joined this group to rally the American people against our effort.

This is not the making of a commander in chief.

"I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States.

This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgment, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty and trust all absolute tenets of command. His biography, Tour of Duty , by Douglas Brinkley, is replete with gross exaggerations, distortions of fact, contradictions and slanderous lies. His contempt for the military and authority is evident by even the most casual review of this biography.

I served as an officer in charge of swift boats in Vietnam from June 1969 to June 1970. I think it's extremely important that all of his records be released so that the American people can judge for themselves. That's in part why I'm here today.

My greater concern is for his shameful behavior after returning from only four months in Vietnam to condemn and malign the hundred of thousands of men and women who served their country honorably and that he, by his actions, aided and abetted the very enemy we were sent to Vietnam to defeat.

In my specific experience in both coastal and river patrols over a 12-month period, I never once saw or heard anything remotely resembling the atrocities described by Sen. Kerry.

If I had, then my obligation was to report them in writing to a higher authority and I would certainly have done that. If Sen. Kerry actually witnessed or participated in these atrocities, or as he described them, "war crimes," he was obligated to report them. That he did not until later, when it suited his political purposes strikes me as opportunism of the worst kind.

That he would malign my service and that of his fellow sailors, with no regard to the truth, makes him totally unqualified to serve as commander in chief.

GWB: HBS MBA -- http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1070924/posts -- The American Thinker February 3, 2004 | Thomas Lifson

*****

.... "One final note on George W. Bush’s management style and his Harvard Business School background does not derive from the classroom, per se. One feature of life there is that a subculture of poker players exists. Poker is a natural fit with the inclinations, talents, and skills of many future entrepreneurs. A close reading of the odds, combined with the ability to out-psych the opposition, leads to capital accumulation in many fields, aside from the poker table.

By reputation, the President was a very avid and skillful poker player when he was an MBA student. One of the secrets of a successful poker player is to encourage your opponent to bet a lot of chips on a losing hand. This is a pattern of behavior one sees repeatedly in George W. Bush’s political career. He is not one to loudly proclaim his strengths at the beginning of a campaign. Instead, he bides his time, does not respond forcefully, a least at first, to critiques from his enemies, no matter how loud and annoying they get. If anything, this apparent passivity only goads them into making their case more emphatically.

Only time will tell, whether Saddam ever had any WMDs. Their non-existence has not been proven. Only time will tell whether or not Osama bin Laden (or his corpse) will be taken into custody by American Troops. Only time will tell whether or not Iraq will continue to make progress toward a transition toward a peaceful democratic government. George W. Bush knows much more information about these topics than his domestic political opponents do. At the moment, they are betting a lot of their chips on one side of these questions.

We will see by November who has the winning hand.

******

I hope G.W. and the Republicans have cards to play, because as you said very well, they are responding very poorly now. I think Bush has plenty of cards to play........ and is holding them until around the first week of October. I pray he has the cards. If he doesn't this country dies ...... even more than it already has!

Be well, Mia T. You are a luminous star.

The mainstream media is the most destructive force in this country. Each one of those movers and shakers involved in all the deception of the American people deserve an afterlife in the hot spot!

"By reputation, the President was a very avid and skillful poker player"- (GWB: HBS MBA -- http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1070924/posts -- The American Thinker February 3, 2004 | Thomas Lifson) .........

Mia, just wanted to mention to you today that we may have just seen one of those early "Bush poker cards" played. In the ridiculous '9/11 Commission Report' today is reported verification by the French (one of three sources) that Bush told the truth about the yellow cake, and that all the claims of his lying is bull. Now, who knows how much the "press" will cover this, but it's a start.

I'm thinking Bush knew we had the goods on the French and the rest of the scoundrels all along on the "Oil for Food" ripoff. I think Bush may have used that info as leverage to get the a**hole French to come forward with that report!

One card played, but perhaps about eight more to go!

But, we still will need the American people to learn of these things. I do not trust them to be interested enough to learn them, and I certainly do not trust the lamestream media liars to tell them.

The mainstream media is the greatest enemy of this nation.

I agree.

As for the cards, Bush must bypass the media and force-feed the voters himself. Means and message cannot be subtle.

All of those potential voters will never know about negative reviews of Kerry's leadership in VN because of the campaign finance reform act the GWB signed unless all is aired before the 90 day period before the general election. I guess for the elite who really are the only group that matters, it matters not which Yalie and Skull and Bones member sits in the oval office as they can pull the strings of either just as well.

Yes. He has to speak to them EVERY DAY.

By the way, we badly need Ari Fleischer back in the saddle. He was a king! If he were back, he could make a speech each day countering EVERYTHING that was misreported or NOT reported in the media.

I'll get back to you later, the plants are waiting! You're the best!

I have a relatively sure way of beating the Dems. in November and I'd like to tell you about it privately. Take care.

NOTE: NEW COMMENTARY, ADDITIONAL TESTIMONY

Did John Kerry pick a running mate or hire a lawyer when he selected John Edwards?


by Mia T, 7.18.04

 PLAINTIFF PETTIFOGGER EDWARDS' 1ST JOB AS KERRY RUNNING MATE: KERRY DEFENSE LAWYER

(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

johnkerryisdangerousforamerica.blogspot.com

 

"There is no one better prepared to keep the American people safe than this man. And if you have any question what John Kerry is made of, just spend three minutes with the men who served with him 30 years ago who still stand by his side. [Emphasis added.] They saw up close that this man is a leader and he has courage, determination and he would never leave any American behind."

John Edwards
Three Minutes (Kerry ad)
July 2004



 

id John Kerry pick a running mate or hire a lawyer when he selected John Edwards?

That ambulance-chaser extraordinaire Edwards' first task on the ticket is to defend Kerry against the three-decades-old charges of betrayal and sedition and purple-heart fraud and engineering an early battlefield exit and political opportunism argues strongly for the latter...

That Kerry felt compelled to hire a lawyer rather than select a running mate who would provide balance for his ultra-left-wing credentials, or his wimpishly metrosexually Eurocentric proterrorist national-insecurity proclivity, tells us everything we need to know about John Kerry's view of his central vulnerability.

Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, Chief of Naval Operations from July 1970 to July 1974, anticipated this move by Kerry when he observed, "With Kerry's large ambitions, his career in Vietnam will haunt him if he were ever on the national stage."

 PLAINTIFF PETTIFOGGER DOES "THREE MINUTES" DEFENSE

John Edwards, the man who made his millions as plaintiff pettifogger, should feel right at home on the other side of the aisle.

He will doubtless work it with the same syrupy Southern drawl and Southern-belle eye flutter.

He will surely continue to confect out of whole cloth his requisite villains and victims, in this case, respectively, Bush/Cheney + the haves, and Kerry/Edwards + have-nots, i.e., Edwards' "two Americas," (notwithstanding Kerry's missus' late husband's billions and Edwards' pillaged-from-the-injured multi-millions, and although the too "pessimistic" shibboleth, itself, has apparently been stricken from the Edwards script).

In place of the junk science and no less shoddy so-called expert witnesses he regularly employed to sway credulous juries, Edwards will use on an equally credulous subset of the electorate the standard demagogic techniques of the run-of-the-mill (even if "son-of-a-millworker") leftist politico: lies, illogic, sleight of hand... and a splash of snake oil to lubricate the Left's ever churning agitprop-and-money-laundering machine.

THE REAL "REAL DEAL"
(what Kerry's commanders and crewmates REALLY think of him--with transcripts)



by Mia T, 7.18.04


 
 
KERRY SWIFT-BOAT-VET FRAUD!
 
(viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE)

KERRY A 'LOOSE CANNON'

I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the United States.

This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgment, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty and trust all absolute tenets of command. His biography, Tour of Duty , by Douglas Brinkley, is replete with gross exaggerations, distortions of fact, contradictions and slanderous lies. His contempt for the military and authority is evident by even the most casual review of this biography.

He arrived in country with a strong anti-Vietnam War bias and a self-serving determination to build a foundation for his political future.

He was aggressive, but vain and prone to impulsive judgment, often with disregard for specific tactical assignments.

He was a 'loose cannon.'

In an abbreviated tour of four months and 12 days and with his specious medals secured, Lt. J.G. Kerry bugged out of Vietnam and began his infamous betrayal of all US soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen, including our POWs in the Vietnam War. His leadership in the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, his testimony before Congress in 1971, charging us with unspeakable atrocities remain as undocumented but nevertheless malicious stain on the men and women who honorably stayed the course.

Senator Kerry is not fit to command. The real 'brothers' are my shipmates and veterans who reliably and honorably stayed the course.

--Admiral Hoffman, United States Navy, retired

 

 

 

KERRY HAS PERSONALITY DISORDER THAT WILL ENDANGER AMERICA

I'm here representing my late father, Admiral Zumwalt and my brother, Lt. J.G. Elmo Zumwalt who was a swift boat commander in Vietnam.

If Lt. Kerry failed to heed the commandments of his military superiors 36 years ago, whom will he heed as president? It surely will not be the electorate who voted him into office.

Senator Kerry has demonstrated a dangerous propensity to slip into multiple personalities depending on the audience he is addressing. This was clear of his Vietnam service and his actions upon returning home. It has been clear as a senator in his actions on various issues related to Iraq.

It is a personality disorder that will endanger America in the event that he is elected president.

-- Lt. Col. Jim Zumwalt, U.S. Marine Corps, retired

 

 

 

KERRY'S INDECISIVENESS PUT BOATS AND CREW IN JEOPARDY

I served in '66 and '67 on my first tour of duty in Vietnam on swift boats and I did my second tour in '68 and '69, involved with John Kerry in the last 2 1/2 months of my tour.

The John Kerry that I know is not the John Kerry that everybody else is portraying..

I served alongside him and behind him, five feet away from him as third class gunner's mate, and watched as he made indecisive moves with our boat, put our boats in jeopardy, put our crews in jeopardy.

If a man like that can't handle a 6-man crew boat, how can you expect him to be our commander in chief?

I left the Navy, lived in Clover, South Carolina and managed boat dealerships. I'm an ordinary guy with no political agenda and no party affiliation.

--Steve Gardner

 

 

 

'FIELD GENERAL' KERRY PRIME MOVER IN AMERICA'S DEFEAT

I served in Vietnam from September 1968 to September 1969, six months of which was with this honored bunch of people, many of whom are here today.

I signed that letter because I, too, felt a deep sense of betrayal: Someone who took the same oath of loyalty as I did as an officer for the US Navy would abandon his group here to join this group here and come home and attempt to rally the American public against the effort that this group was so valiantly pursuing.

You know, 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.

Only last week--or two weeks ago--I saw on television where, when asked to respond for his support for the Iraq war, he said, "I cannot imagine going to war without the support of the American people." The same man who joined this group to rally the American people against our effort.

This is not the making of a commander in chief.

--Bob Elder

 

 

 

 

KERRY--OPPORTUNIST OF THE WORST KIND

I served as an officer in charge of swift boats in Vietnam from June 1969 to June 1970. I think it's extremely important that all of his records be released so that the American people can judge for themselves. That's in part why I'm here today.

My greater concern is for his shameful behavior after returning from only four months in Vietnam to condemn and malign the hundred of thousands of men and women who served their country honorably and that he, by his actions, aided and abetted the very enemy we were sent to Vietnam to defeat.

In my specific experience in both coastal and river patrols over a 12-month period, I never once saw or heard anything remotely resembling the atrocities described by Sen. Kerry.

If I had, then my obligation was to report them in writing to a higher authority and I would certainly have done that. If Sen. Kerry actually witnessed or participated in these atrocities, or as he described them, "war crimes," he was obligated to report them. That he did not until later, when it suited his political purposes strikes me as opportunism of the worst kind.

That he would malign my service and that of his fellow sailors, with no regard to the truth, makes him totally unqualified to serve as commander in chief.

--Jeff Wainscot

 

 

 

KERRY ENGINEERED EARLY VIETNAM EXIT WITH FRAUDULENT PURPLE HEART

I served as commander, coastal division 14-4 early days of 1968 til the first week of 1969. Lt. J.G. Kerry reported in mid-November to that division.

While in Cam Rahn Bay, he turned in -- he trained on several 24-hour indoctrination missions. On one specific skimmer operation with my most senior and trusted lieutenant, the briefing from some members of that crew the morning after revealed that they had not received any enemy fire, and yet Lt. J.G. Kerry informed me of a wound and showed me a scratch on his arm and a piece of shrapnel in his hand that appeared to be from one of our own M-79s.

It was later reported to me that Lt. J.G. Kerry had fired an M-79 and it had exploded off the adjacent shoreline. I do not recalling being advised of any medical treatment and probably said something like, "Forget it."

He later received a purple heart for that scratch and I have no information as to how or whom.

Lt. J.G. Kerry was allowed to return to the good ol' USA after four months and a few days in country; and then he proceeded to betray his former shipmates, calling them criminals and [accusing them of] committing atrocities.

Today we are here to tell you just the opposite is true.

Republican or Democrat, it doesn't matter. I for one, could not support and do not want Senator Kerry to be commander in chief of our brave and honorable men.

--Commander Grant Everett, United States Navy, retired

 

 

 

KERRY'S ARROGANCE ROOTED IN IGNORANCE

That's the problem with Mr. Kerry. He's always criticizing others in command without knowing the facts.

--Joe Ponder

 

 

 

 

KERRY "REQUIRES CONSTANT SUPERVISION"

In the Navy, we have a term, 'service reputation,' by-and-large, unofficial and unwritten. It means the few words that a sailor's colleagues would use to give a snapshot of someone. Kerry would be described as 'devious,' 'self-absorbed,' 'manipulative,' [has] 'distain for authority,' 'disruptive,' but the most common phrase would be 'requires constant supervision.'

 --Charlie Plumly, Captain, United States Navy, retired

 

 

 

KERRY'S BETRAYAL CONTRIBUTED TO THE IMPOSITION OF TYRANNY ON THE VIETNAMESE PEOPLE

Good morning ladies and gentlemen.  My name is Bernard Wolff.

I'm a Georgia boy who joined the Navy to avoid the draft. After a couple of years in a safe, secure assignment in California, I felt an obligation to follow in the footsteps of my forebears and fight for my Country. I volunteered for Swift Boats, and was privileged to be accepted.

I served in three Coastal Divisions during my one year tour from August 1967 to 68: Cam Rahn Bay, An Thoi, and Da Nang. Like so many combat veterans, I returned to civilian life, earning an MBA and joining the business world.

I have signed the Letter to John Kerry in hopes that releasing his Navy medical records will clarify the credibility of his statements in 1971 that defamed those of us who served in Vietnam.

In addition to signing this Letter, I want to refute Kerry's assertions regarding Swift Boat crews engaging in war crimes. We went out of our way to protect innocent Vietnamese, even when it placed us in deep peril.

John Kerry's statements not only brought heartbreak to Vietnam Veterans and their families. They contributed to the imposition of tyranny upon the Vietnamese people.

My 30 years of business travel in the Far East have provided a sad testament to Vietnam's plight. I have seen citizens of neighboring countries enjoy growing prosperity, while our former friends in Vietnam have languished in isolated poverty and hopelessness. This is John Kerry's legacy.

I deeply resent John Kerry's using his Swift Boat experience, and his betrayal of those who fought there as a stepping stone to his political ambitions.

--Bernard Wolff





KERRY'S FALSE ACCUSATIONS RUINED LIVES, HARMED AMERICA

My name is Richard O'Meara. I'm from the Bronx. I served as a petty officer, 3rd class on a Swift Boat from September '68 to September '69. This was tough, frustrating and sometimes very deadly duty that we took very seriously. During my tour, I participated in over 100 combat patrols, from the very mundane Coastal patrols to the serious and deadly river operations. As crewmen, we were young volunteers and committed to our mission. After my year of duty, I left Vietnam, proud of my service to my country, proud of my crew members and proud of the work that we did.

In 1971, when John Kerry spoke out to America, labeling all Vietnam veterans as thugs and murderers, I was shocked and almost brought to my knees, because even though I had served at the same time and same unit, I had never witnessed or participated in any of the events that the senator had accused us of.

I strongly believe that the statements made by the senator were not only false and inaccurate, but extremely harmful to the United States' efforts in Southeast Asia and the rest of the world. Tragically, some veterans, scorned by the anti-war movement and their Allies retreated to a life of despair and suicide. Two of my crewmates were among them. For that, there is no forgiveness.  

--Richard O'Meara





 

KERRY DOESN'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ENDURING TRUTHS AND A BOLD-FACED LIE

I'm David Wallace from Atlanta, Georgia. In 1969-'70, I was officer-in-charge of a Swift Boat in Coastal Division 13.

The officers and men with whom I served were honest and honorable. I can only speculate what went on with John Kerry's boats and crew. I do know that I didn't see anything remotely resembling war crimes committed by American sailors, soldiers or airmen.

To the contrary, I saw time after time where American fighting men knowing placed themselves in greater danger to protect civilians and avoid what the politicians called "collateral damage."  About one-third of our operations were to assist the people of Vietnam.

John Kerry returned to this country and, under oath, told my parents, my brother, my sister, my neighbors, he told everyone I knew and everyone that I would ever know, that I and my comrades had committed unspeakable atrocities, that we tortured people, raped women, burned villages without any reason--that sort of thing. He never let up on that.

That wasn't even the worst part. He told the parents, brothers and sisters of the 58,000 brave men who paid the full measure that it's not so bad--they're just war criminals anyway....

Now he's parading around in a Navy flight jacket with patches all over it. I was in Vietnam three times longer than the senator and I didn't see anyone wear flight jackets in 90-degree weather. Now that it suits his purpose, he wants to be a war hero &endash; one wearing a leather flight jacket and telling people it brought him luck in Vietnam.

I just want a commander in chief who knows the difference between the truth and a fanciful flight that gets you somewhere. I want someone who knows the difference between a bold-faced lie and the enduring truths. From what I've seen, John Kerry isn't close.

 --David Wallace




 

THE GALLING IRONY OF KERRY'S OPPORTUNISM:
SELF-CONFESSED VIETNAM-WAR-CRIMINAL KERRY BECOMES SELF-PROCLAIMED VIETNAM-WAR-HERO KERRY

I find it ironic that in 1971-72, for almost 18 months, John Kerry stood before the American people and claimed that the 500,000 men and women in Vietnam in combat were all villains. There were no heroes. In 2004, one hero from the Vietnam War has appeared running for President of the United States and Commander in Chief.

It just galls one to think about it.

--George Elliot




KERRY'S WORST ATROCITY OF ALL

During the Vietnam War, I was a task group commander at An Thoi and my tour of duty was 13 months from the end of Tet to the beginning of the Vietnamization of the Navy units. My tour spanned the four months that Kerry served there in the area.

I think the greatest atrocity of all was when we pulled the financial rug out from under the thousands of military officers and South Vietnamese government officials and assigned them to three and four years of hard time in reindoctrination camps.

--Capt. Adrian Lonsdale, US Coast Guard, retired





KERRY'S OPPORTUNISTIC EXPLOITATION OF SWIFT BOATS -- WANTS TO HAVE IT BOTH WAYS

I'm a retired chief petty officer and I live in Sun City, California. I was in Vietnam from June 1968 to Jun 1969 serving up in Da Nang and Chu Li and in January 1969, I went to Cat Lo where I served as an engineer and a lead petty officer aboard swift boats during the same period as John Kerry.

I signed this letter because I feel he used Swift Boats for Sailors to proclaim his action, his anti-war statements after the war, and now he uses the same Swift Boats for Sailors to support his claims of being a war hero.

He cannot have it both ways and we are here to ask for full disclosure of the proof of his claims.

--Jim Steffis
