(Fox News) Carl Cameron Confronts Kerry Campaign on Cambodia
Fox News ^ | 9 Aug 2004 | Carl Cameron

Posted on 08/09/2004 3:20:41 PM PDT by mcg1969

Hugh Hewitt just finished playing an entire story from Fox News wherein Carl Cameron confronted the Kerry campaign regarding his Cambodia claims.

Intially, they denied that Kerry had ever said he was in Cambodia. So Carl presented them with the Senate Record and the Boston Globe article where he most unambiguously did so. They said they would have to get back to him on this one, but sticks to their story that he was near Cambodia, but not actually in Cambodia.

THIS STORY HAS LEGS!

I saw it......it was fabulous.

The Kerry campaign had not gotten back to him by show time to explain the discrepancies (lies)! When Cameron first asked them about it today, they DENIED Kerry every said such a thing.

Carl evidently had the Congressional record and showed them!!!

They neglected to mention that Johnson was still in the White House at the time - I sent them an email asking them to expose yet another Kerry lie. (Kerry said Nixon sent them in) There are so many it is hard to refute them all.

It depends on what you mean by in. If you mean "inside of", then no, he wasn't in Cambodia - but that isn't what he meant. If by in you mean "not in" then that is eaxactly what Kerry meant.

That about covers it, right?

And Cameron failed to mention that Nixon was not POTUS Christmas of 1968(as Kerry claimed). LBJ was my boss and Kerry's in 1968! Duhhhhhh

He was pretty concise on that...in fact, wondering if "the rest of the world" is hearing this, I did a quick flip over to CNN to see if they were mirroring.

They had Eddie Bernice Whatzername blithering on about U.N. election observers and how the Republicans stole the 2000 election and disenfranchised every black person in America.

Repeating what I said earlier:

I heard Jerry Agar reading some of this book today on the radio here in Raleigh; if the part he read is indicative of the rest of it, I now know why Kerry brought out the lawyers.

It's devastating.

The part Agar read was about the swift boat commanders' reunion in 2003; Kerry showed up with a camera crew, shoved aside some of the veterans so he could get to the dock to be photographed beside the boat; when asked, none of the swift boat veterans agreed to be photographed with him.

These were the men who served in his unit (is that the right word?).

And the thing that infuriated them most? After he got his film/photographs, he left. He did not stay for the memorial service for those who died.

No, he meant "I was near Cambodia before I didn't go to Cambodia". I think.

I saw it too. lead off story of the night. Hot dang!

Now, will ABC's NIGHTLINE address Cambodia? Will ABC's Jack Tapper question the integrity of 250, medal holding Viet Nam veterans, some of whom were Kerry's commanding officers? We'll see.

A few months ago , I was trying to build an archive of Kerry mistruths lies etc including all the stuff that FR had posted here,, and gave up..

There was such a large pile of hoooey coming downstream from the lamestream media,,, I couldn't keep up with.

The man does not do himself any service by continuing to waffle on his service record, and now, in so doing , is only casting more aspersions on those who served honorably.

Release all your military and medical records, Sen. Kerry.. Now!

Cameron's report was scorching. He ripped Kerry a new one when he outlined how first the Kerry campaign denied Kerry said those things, but when FOX showed them the Congressional Report AND the Boston Globe article about Kerry's Kambodian Klaims, the Kampaign promised to get back to him, but had not as of news time.


LOL That's the kind of back story a reporter can choose to report, or bury. Cameron reported it.

"in Cambodia" and "near Cambodia" were absolutely interchangeable back then when talking about my super-secret mission.

You mean, it depends on what the meaning of "in" is?

The Rats are so bad with defining everyday words when it comes to getting caught. sKerry must be taking lessons from Slickster...

The border which I crossed was in dispute, so while I believed that I was in Cambodia, others believe I was not. But what really matters was not whether or not I was in Cambodia, but that I was in Vietnam, and I won three Purple Hearts.

Reminds me of Reagan's lying in state in CA when Kerry showed up with his own film crew and jumped the line to be seen bowing his head before the casket.

I guess it all started when he had his own film crew in Vietnam.

Thanks for the info. It will be a disaster if this spaced out egomaniac ends up in the White House. Are the American people stupid enough to put him there? Are the American people stupid enough to believe that Uncle Sugar in Washington DC can solve all their problems via the Democrat version of socialism for the United States? On November 2nd we shall find out.
