Dems Plan Assault on Vets
Crush Kerry ^ | 8/08/04 | Crush Kerry admin

Posted on 08/08/2004 11:44:55 AM PDT by Merry

The Democrat National Committee has prepared a full-scale assault against the Vietnam Veterans for Truth to draw their character and veracity into question, according to one anonymous source inside the DNC. The campaign of character assassination is scheduled to coincide with the release of the book Unfit for Command which reveals inconvenient facts for the Kerry campaign.

“We have prepared what we call ‘Brown Books’ that contain damaging military records, personal credit histories, medical histories, psychiatric histories, divorce records, you name it,” our source told us. The “Brown Books” are so-called because of their distinctive plain brown covers, which contain no words. Some books have already been delivered to Kerry-friendly reporters. Others are on their way, our source told us. When asked if we could have a copy, our source declined, saying there is a limited number of “Brown Books” and they have been carefully inventoried to control in whose hands the books ended up.

Ultimately the “Brown Books” will end up in the hands of pro-Kerry news agencies and reporters. According to our source, who demanded to remain anonymous for fear of retribution, The New York Times is already on the hook to run a negative series on the Vets, as is the Boston Globe, which is owned by the Times. (Editor’s Note: The Globe has already been caught attempting to attack the veracity of George Elliott, Kerry’s commanding officer in Vietnam.)

In addition, the DNC has deployed a six member team from their press shop whose sole responsibility will be to spin and counter-spin stories about the members of Vietnam Veterans for Truth with pro-Kerry media entities, like the Times.

When asked if this was just another example of John Kerry slandering Vietnam Vets – like he did in 1971 as a member of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War – our source snapped, “No! This is warfare. The only way we’re going to get out of this is to force everyone to question their motives and credibility.”

“If they want to spread rumors and stories about John Kerry, we’ll spread rumors and stories about them. And some of the things they did in Vietnam were a lot worse than what they say John Kerry did,” our source concluded ominously.

Stay tuned. We will keep you posted as this nasty story develops. Posted on Sunday, August 08 @ 14:36:36 EDT by admin

It's us against the powerful media. The MSM wants Kerry to win and will make sure of it at all costs. These vets are just ordinary citizens trying to tell the truth.

I've sent them money and if or when the left unleashes the attack dogs I'll send more. I've written letters to the editors in my area reminding them that these men all served in the Delta with Kerry and have every right to be heard and let the chips fall where they may. I've called Senator McCain asking his office what evidence he has that these men are "dishonorable" since they were in the Delta with Kerry while McCain was at the Hanoi Hilton.

Thus far, no answers from McCain and no letters printed but I know my contribution is helping them have their say.

The ONLY way? How about telling the TRUTH? You can't do that, though, CAN you?

They are extra-ordinary citizens! They are talking straight, and making responsive answers to their detractors. They could have just "laid low" and let nature take its course. It takes courage to do what they are doing now.

I think contributions will flood in.

But I don't think the Dems are going to do it: they're going to rumor it, and see if that works. But, remember, every time people look more closely at the vets, they look more closely at Kerry, and that's gotta be dangerous from the Dem point of view.

In addition, anything done to the Swifties could also be done to the "Band of Brothers," who probably are supporting Kerry because if his medals are called into question, so are theirs (since he put them in for those awards in events that now appear never to have happened).

Perfect. The Dems have taken the bait. The more they whine about the swifties, the more the story stays in the media!!!
You'll notice by comparison... that the Bush team just released all of Bush's records regarding his guard service. They didn't try to stop the media from reporting it, nor did they beat up on the messenger's background. The messenger's politics, sure. This is going to backfire on sKerry like a giant drain plug being pulled out from under his campaign.

Wish I could afford to do the same. That apparently is the most effective way to help.Pro bono legal help would also be very valuable to the Swifties.

John Kerry : "war hero" or a "war criminal"

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1186991/posts

Answer the question Kerry!

Did you lie about your "heroics" or the "war crimes"?

Can't have it both ways!

RELASE ALL YOUR MILITARY RECORDS BEFORE NOV 2nd!

Unless you are hiding something?

Are you?

If the dems actually pull this crap, I think they will be administering the "coup de gras" to themselves...nothing like shooting yourself in the foot, this time they are aiming for their own head...they are attacking the messengers not the message...Kerry needs to release his records..if he won't and this happens there will likely be a lawsuit and the records will be subpoened in discovery...I don't know if Kerry could stop their release on privacy grounds if the DNC is sued...it will be interesting....

This is great - Kerry's FOUR MONTHS in Vietnam being used as a major plank for potus? Hahahaha. All the Swift Boat Truth vets need to do is cast doubt on Kerry, basically just talk trash, appear on tv, and then get in on the book tour. Hey Dem's, you like dirty politics (Moore, Garafolo, Hollywood, Whoopi, Franken, et al)? Right back atcha. Awesome that Bush has distanced himself from this brutal fight. Getting into a boat with Kerry is like getting into a car driving over a bridge with Teddy K. - just don't do it.

Here's some pertinent kerry history!!!!

Below is excerpted statements to Congress, 22 April, 1971 by Lt. John F. Kerry USNR(Inactive Reserve Status).



"Mr. KERRY. My feeling, Senator, is undoubtedly this Congress, and I don't mean to sound pessimistic, but I do not believe that this Congress will, in fact, end the war as we would like to, which is immediately and unilaterally and, therefore, if I were to speak I would say we would set a date and the date obviously would be the earliest possible date. But I would like to say, in answering that, that I do not believe it is necessary to stall any longer. I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points it has been stated time and time again, and was stated by Senator Vance Hartke when he returned from Paris, and it has been stated by many other officials of this Government, if the United States were to set a date for withdrawal the prisoners of war would be returned."

Furhter paired down to:

"I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and the Provisional Revolutionary Government and of all eight of Madam Binh's points..."(kerry and his VVAW negotiated in Paris with the then enemy.)

Stated by kerry to Our U.S. Congress which is in the Official Congressional Record, 22 April, 1971.

I'll let ALL of you think your own thoughts about this, however, I cannot for the life of me, picture kerry in any elected office, never mind being Commander in Chief!!!!

Why kerry was not indicted, tried and convicted for Treason and Sedition under the appropriate Articles, We will never know.

The Media SHAMELESSLY hides this TRUTH(In the Congressional Record, dated 22 April, 1971) from the Public!!!! They are equally Treasonous and Seditionous as kerry is!!!!This Blatant Example of the media shows that we no longer have a FREE and TRUTHFUL Press(Straight ALL the Way LEFT of Center)!!!!

kerry had his VVAW which led to the deaths of thousands or hundreds of thousands of deaths in Viet Nam, Laos and Cambodia after he and his VVAW accomplished their mission in getting U.S. withdrawal in South Viet Nam. kerry and his VVAW forever tarnished the image of U.S. Viet Nam Vets!!!!

The Democratic Party is no longer the Democratic Party!!!! For them to select kerry and his two forunners Clinton and Gore show they have become the party of our enemies!!!!

We cannot ALLOW this to STAND!!!!

This may be America's chance to make things up to the VietNam Veterans who were treated so horribly when they returned home years ago.

This may also be America's chance to give Kerry what he deserves for having slandered our honorable soldiers and for having caused the POW's such atrocities while they were in the cruelty of those VC prisons.
