Skip to comments.Anti-Kerry Vets to Release Book About Kerry War Fabrications--BREAKING
Posted on 08/03/2004 7:58:15 PM PDT by I'm ALL Right!
A veterans group seeking to deeply discredit Democrat John Kerry's military service will charge in the new bombshell book UNFIT FOR COMMAND:
Two of John Kerry's three Purple Heart decorations resulted from self-inflicted wounds, not suffered under enemy fire.
All three of Kerry's Purple Hearts were for minor injuries, not requiring a single hour of hospitalization.
A "fanny wound" was the highlight of Kerry's much touted "no man left behind" Bronze Star.
Kerry turned the tragic death of a father and small child in a Vietnamese fishing boat into an act of "heroism" by filing a false report on the incident.
Kerry entered an abandoned Vietnamese village and slaughtered the domestic animals owned by the civilians and burned down their homes with his Zippo lighter.
Kerry's reckless behavior convinced his colleagues that he had to go -- becoming the only Swift Boat veteran to serve only four months.
The Kerry campaign is planning to vigorously counter the charges and will accuse the veteran's groups of being well-financed by a top Bush donor from Texas, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
"They hired a goddamn private investigator to dig up trash!" charged a top Kerry adviser traveling with the senator late Tuesday. "This is pay for play, and the dirtiest of all dirty tricks ever played on a candidate for the presidency. How low can they go?"
Kerry supporters are comparing the effort by the veterans to the Arkansas State troopers tell-all against Bill Clinton.
UNFIT FOR COMMAND will not be released until August 15.
The names. The details. All on the record.
Beginning tomorrow, the DRUDGE REPORT will break the embargo.
Thanks for posting this.
Hadn't seen it posted anywhere else yet.
Could you change the name of the source to "Drudge", please?
WoW! This is big news!
I can't wait to get this.
Remember how overjoyed we all were when the Arkansas troopers spilled their guts on Bubbah?
I wonder if this will be the subject of a Katie Couric interview on the TOday show?
Wow, wonder if they attack our less well healed veterans as trailer trash?
A "fanny wound" was the highlight of Kerry's much touted "no man left behind" Bronze Star."
Sounds like Forest Gump.
Eat it you left wing bastards!!!!
As low as the evidence takes them I suppose.
Just like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football! This will not be spoken of in the rat media. Period.
At least they didn't pull a Clinton and hire thugs to intimidate people.
And the true battle for the whitehouse begins.
You just wait!!
Kerry supporters will now dig up stuff about Bush's time in the National Guard and then ...
No, that won't work, they already been there and tried that.
Hey! This ain't playing fair!!
'Bout dang time...
I've said all along that someone who served under his command
has got to come forward with credible stories before all this will stick.
People who served laterally with him will be pretty much ignored by the big media.
Okay. Duplicate post...sorry.
Kerry campaign complains that...
>> well-financed by a top Bush donor
>> private investigator to dig up trash
>> pay for play
>> comparing the effort by the veterans to the Arkansas State troopers tell-all against Bill Clinton
But the Kerry campaign doesn't deny any of the allegations.
This goes in the realm of of 'the timing is suspicious.'
I don't like JFK, and want to see GWB remain- but this particular bit seems uncomfortably close to the sort of Taurine-Shiite the lefties slung at our troops- the guys would find a laager from VC/NVA, burn it, kill the chickens/goats...all of a sudden "American troops destroy a village, and massacre the impoverished villager's animals."
Besides, since he has already admitted, during the Winter Soldier "hearings" that he committed all sorts of (unspecified) atrocities, shouldn't we be looking into those?
Now on to the release of Kerry's FBI file!
That cover photo of Kerry is downright scary. Like something out of a horror movie.
I knew about Bill Clinton, and you sir, would be well advised to pick another person to compare yourself with.
You're right. I retract my comment! :)
Oops. Does the truth hurt, Kerry advisor?
The dirtiest of all tricks huh?
Hmmm....which should I read first, the new book by General Tommy Franks or the swifties? Sounds like both are gonna be a good read.
Sounds like "NASA wasn't supposed to take pictures!"
Ouch! They used the pre-botox photo for a cover. That's gotta hurt.
I do! I was a lurker then, but I remember...
On the other hand, Kerry isn't giving us much else to discuss. All I can figure is he wants to tilt to France away from Britain, and he's got super-secret plans for the economy that he can't reveal until after elected.
That pre-Botox photo on the cover is priceless.
It better be rock-solid well-documented or that single item that is the least bit untrue will tarnish the whole thing by the press as a 'smear job'.
It's what they did with (mostly true) allegations against Bill in 1992.
Notice they didn't say that someone was hired to make up trash. If they're claiming someone dug up trash on Kerry, isn't that an admission that the allegations are true?
IMHO, whether TRUE or NOT, the MSM will be on Kerry's side and will do everything in their power to make this a "Dirty Trick" and the evil wicked BUSH must be the Dirty Trickster!
Bring on the PIs! Bring on the book! Let the American people decide what "traitor" means? The Honorable Vietnam Vets deserve an explanation about what he meant and who he was talking about with his post combat propaganda. Any American who doesn't feel these honorable vets deserve this needs a lesson in moral values.
Was that real or did it get debunked? I remeber some reporter (Brock?) confessed to making stuff up about Clinton. Big backfire for anti-Clinton folk.
Anyway, John E. O'Neill doesn't seem like one to fabricate, and seems pretty smart. I assume he has carefully done his homework.
All Kerry has to do is release all his military records including medical records to the public.
Great these must be released too!~!!
If you think this picture is scary, you ought to see the one of Kerry taken when he woke up the next morning after his wedding to the Witch -- and took a good look at what he had married!!
Now, that shot would turn your blood to ice in a heartbeat !!
The trooper were news for a few days then faaded away, popping up every once in a while on talk shows.
A book of this type has to be factually correct. If a part can be didcredited, it affects the entire publication.
Veterany postavili pod somnenie geroizm Johna Kerry (Veterans cast doubt on John Kerry's heroism
This book is apparently going to hit big, and likely will be a bombshell.
Hey John, why the long face??
You mean like the Clinton's did?? This could be interesting??
Pray for W and Our Troops
I am just curious, Mr.Kerry...
How would you and you're campaign know to be prepared to counter these charges of a YET TO BE RELEASED book....if the charges are not true...
