UPDATE: Its starting. We guess David Brock over at Media Matters for America received a Brown Book. He attempts a character hit on Jerome Corsi, one of the authors of Unfit for Command.
The Democrat National Committee has prepared a full-scale assault against the Swift Boat 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. "We've got the goods on the Veterans who oppose Kerry."
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. (Editors Note: The Globe has already been caught attempting to attack the veracity of George Elliott, Kerrys 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 Swift Boat 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 were 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, well 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.
"CruchKerry"? Sounds series.
If what the Vets against Kerry say are untrue, why are they so defensive? Truth hurts and lies fly.
Hillary's collection of FBI files comes in very handy...
That's "Crushkerry.com". I haven't posted in a long time, so I apologize in advance for the errors. I clicked post instead of preview so I couldn't edit.
Kerry is finished. He pulled off the biggest fraud in convention history and his supporters about to learn they been had.
So it begins - The Politics of Personal Destrution.
Who can tell me, with a straight face, that She Who Must Not Be Named isn't running that party?
Geezus, don't let Sandy get his hands on one!
Dems Plan Assault on Vets.........
more accurately, Dems plan assault on anyone who speaks against them
ELECTION 2004: State Democrats let Miller be
(or Kerry Campaign Asked GA Dems to Help Smear Zell-My Title)
His supporters would stand by him even if he was found in bed with a live little boy or a dead little girl. Remember this guy named Bill Clinton, who is still revered by the liberal left to this day; the guy is the Rock Star of the Democratic Party. No, your talking about a party that has no shame.
Kerry has had this coming for a long time after the "Winter Soldier" lies told so many years ago that formed the basis of Vietnam myth for an entire generation.
Big mistake on the part of the Kerry campaign. The swift vets for truth is more than just the guys in the anti kerry ads. I belive their numbers are closer to 200.
These are guys who have no reason at all to lie. The damage, whatever it amounts to, has been done, and Kerry is just going to have to eat it.
And he has nobody to blame but himself, because he's been parading around like Audie Murphy, making his war record his main issue. He would have never had this problem if he'd simply been appropriately modest about Vietnam, just mentioning his record in passing, and let others sing his praises for serving.
I think these Vets have a right to be heard and they are the true heros. They have nothing to gain from this and everything to lose. This is how the Dems play politics: no ideas, and if you criticize, smear the character of those opposing you.
"This Will be the nastiest Presidential Campaign in history" I wish you were wrong, that the Left would wake up and put national defense ahead of partisanship. But you are'nt. Your're right on target.
Gee, I would think it would be much more effective to discredit the truthfulness of their claims rather than the motives and credibility of the people making them. (Of course, that presumes that they can discredit the claims.)
