Skip to comments.FBI says VVAW disclosed US Military plans (Kerry's Treason)
Posted on 08/16/2004 11:10:50 AM PDT by BykrBayb
On www.wintersoldier.com's Timeline page, it says "April 22, 1972 -- John Kerry represents the VVAW at the "Emergency March for Peace" in Bryant Park in New York City."
At that same time, according to the FBI surveillance file, Section 50, Part 1, Page 152. VVAW/WSO revealed information about a US Military operation. "...the VVAW/WSO operation during 4/72 during which a canvass of VVAW/WSO members, some in active military service, developed information indicating US would bomb Hanoi and Haiphong. This information was disseminated by VVAW/WSO prior to the actual bombing and could have seriously jeopardized US Military operations and lives of servicemen."

Makes one wonder if McCain's being shot down was a result of this? maybe we should ask him what he thinks about THAT?
Send it to RUSH or Drudge and any other media you can think of........Get the word out!
I regret that I can't stay and follow this thread, as I have to take hubby to the doctor. I'll follow up when I get back.
Why was he not charged? Must be that rich thing getting in the way of justice.
Treason was o.k. during the Vietnam era, because everyone doing it was sincere in their disagreement with the war.
He resigned his leadership in Nov. of 1971.
a major reason McCain has to slam the swiftvets is
because of his campaign reform BS. He's a jackass.
Read the original article again, and see post #5. That was April 1972, according to www.wintersoldier.com.
Indeed, and this is why I make the following statement: I wish the jpg image of the article had a date associated with it. It'd be pretty "hugh" if it could be proven that John Kerry was still with the VVAW organization after 1971!
Do you have the exact citation of the article in the picture, ie, the date of it?
Either way thanks, very interesting stuff here.
Seems he and Kerry are birds of a feather and are simply protecting each other.
Ummm.... there was a picture posted on here several months ago from the Boston Globe with a caption stating he was still the head of VVAW, the picture being taken in 1973. He was watching Nixon on the news. We can't post the picture because the owner of the photo (Corbis, I believe) said we couldn't...but will go see if I can find the link.
Was the 4/72 operation the same event mentioned in that article? It isn't too specific where it went down.
Thanks for the info. It is one more Kerry controversy. Kerry wanted everyone to believe, including Brinkley, that he resigned earlier in 1971. He didn't want anyone to know that he attended the "assassination vote" meeting in Kansas City in November. Did he take credit for still being the leader, or did the newspaper identify him as such? I knew that after his leadership resignation, he did make some more appearances.
This was the biggest alert since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
It was Big.
These days, it seems that very few treason cases get prosecuted. This speaks volumes about our society in general, and about our true level of resolve.
bump for later

Here's some more ammo!
Head of Kerry's Vietnam Vets Against the War was Vietnam Vet phony
"...At the time, Kerry was serving as the point man for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War.
The president of the organization was Al Hubbard, who claimed to be an Air Force captain
who was severely injured during his service in Vietnam.
It turned out Hubbard was a sergeant who never served in Vietnam..."
Oh Geez .. not again
FYO Ping = FYI Ping
Traitors must be put before a firing squad on national TV...
It's BS and I for one am sick of it...
My loathing of these people requires medication.
But, I'll drink to "Absent Friends", instead...
It's been a rough day with the typo's :0(
Thanks for the original.
Hubbard lied. Kerry lied. Fonda lied. Servicemen died.
HOLY MOLY! Pass the Ammo!
I am presently reading the FBI files and there is more to come than this. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
Right now what the Kerry campaign is hearing is the first scraps of the hull of the S.S.Kerrytannic on the iceberg below.
The Vietnam stuff was a smoke screen that Kerry and the Taxocrats hoped they could pull off before anyone deleved in to the FBI files .
Kerry met with North Vietnamese officials in Paris when on his honeymoon in the spring of 1970.
[Excerpt] On July 22, 1971, Kerry called a press conference in Washington, D.C. speaking on behalf of the VVAW, kerry openly urged President Nixon the acccept Madame Binh's seven-point plan. [End Excerpt] Unfit for Command - pg 127
Kerry was transferred to Standby Reserve, "inactive" July 1, 1972
Unfortunaltely this is dead already, the media will not pick it up, seeing as though they have had all this time to report it. The simple dim response will be, it was an illegal(or some other word) dirty nixonian tactic from way back when and bears no weight on todays issue.
I remember it well. My husband was in the Army Reserves at the time - they activated his unit and he went tearing off to Old Camp Kilmer NJ in the middle of the night. There they were set to work repainting all their olive drab vehicles in desert sand . . . it came to nothing, but it got pretty exciting there for awhile.
Puleez, let's be smart on these things. Everyone was talking about bombing Hanoi/Haiphong for years. The real, no-nonsense bombing was in Dec 72. VVAW blabbering in Apr 72 would not have had any intel value to NVN, and certainly didn't cause McCain to be shot down several years EARLIER. BTW, one only had to read the papers or listen to TV/radio in Oct 73 to know we had gone to high DEFCON. Don't give the VVAW more clout or influence than they really had. Parading around in their SGT Pepper, Army surplus store get-ups didn't impress most people.
Yikes about the info leak, and evil grin about Hubbard.
What is the federal statute of limitations on treason?
Presently reading FBI files on Kerry and VVAW.
VVAW distributed documents that were stamped with the following statement:
"NEVER THIK THAT WAR NO MATTER HOW NECESSARY NOR HOW JUSTIFIED IS NOT A CRIME. ASK THE INFANTRY AND ASK THE DEAD."
Muller or Mueller?
Is this the Robert Mueller, Kerry's classmate, and current director of the FBI?
Seems he and Kerry are birds of a feather and are simply protecting each other.
Thats an offensive analogy. To compare to the two is outrageous as McCain did his duty at great personal cost. I dont know if McCain told the VC anything, but if he did he did so unwillingly and held out as long as he could.
Disagree with his politics all you want, I often do, but your obvious hatred towards him has unbalanced you.
You are wrong. McCain admitted that he gave up ship positions in exchange for medical attention. Call it what you will, he gave up more than name rank and serial number.
Here is another tid bit from the FBI files.
"2. Page two of a document dated September 9,1971 concerning speakers at a VVAW rally, reads in part;
A rally is scheduled for one P.M. September twelve next at the park. Scheduled speakers include Neil Mc Laughlin, one of eight persons indicted by FGC in four three seventy one for conspiracy to kidnap presidential advisor Henry Kissinger and blow up heating tunnels in Washington D.C.
Did Senator John Kerry know this person, and why would he allow an alleged Domestic Terrorist to speak at this VVAW rally about PEACE in Vietnam?
