Kerry's Band of Brothers, just who are they?

Posted on 08/19/2004 5:02:29 AM PDT by Beckwith

Senator Kerry's guys say this and Admiral Hoffman's guys say that. So, who are the men of Kerry's 'Band of Brothers' that are backing up the ever-evolving myth of Kerry in Viet Nam and why do they do the things they do?

I will not question any of the "Band of Brothers" service in Viet Nam in 1968 and 1969. Whatever happened, happened. That's history.

However, I do have some questions about the current involvement of these guys traveling with the Kerry for President Campaign since these guys have a vested interest in the success or failure of John Kerry.

These guys are all being financially compensated by the Kerry Campaign, traveling first-class and staying at the best hotels and being interviewed by the media. I'll bet there's chicks too. Not rock stars, but for old guys, pretty cool.

And, they all stand to have really good jobs in a Kerry Administration.

All these six or eight have to do is back up Kerry and they hit the jackpot.

I have read on some other sites that The Reverend's version of events are not holding up to scrutiny any more than Captain Kerry's Camodia Chronicles.

they're war criminals - Kerry said so himself under oath to congress in 1971. He recently said that he is proud of that.

so why would these folks campaign with a guy who testified that they were akin to slobodan milosovic?

Didn't Jim Rassmussen tell Kerry in Iowa that he tried to contact Kerry when he was first elected to the Senate but Kerry wouldn't return his phone calls? Some "band of brothers"!
Also looks like David Alston was wounded but not on PCF-94 while John Kerry was in command.

You've heard about the lucky hat given to Kerry by the CIA guy he took to Cambodia. Here is photographic proof.

Kerry Lies

War Criminal or War Hero,
See both you cannot be.
You claimed you burned a village,
Sounds like a crime to me.
Cambodia in Sixty-Eight,
You say that you were there.
You said Nixon said you weren’t,
Just why would Nixon care?
He wasn’t even president,
Till Nineteen Sixty-Nine.
But details never bother you,
Bold lies do suit you fine.
Three Purple Hearts for paper cuts,
A Bronze and Silver Star.
Then home you came, threw them away,
But look now, there they are.
You testified with still more lies,
About brave fighting men.
The things you claimed that they did,
Just aren’t true now or then.
So tell us please John Kerry,
Which lie we should believe.
Oh what a tangled web you weave,
You practice to deceive.

Kerry's crew has been blackmailed by their skipper. They are just following orders in fear Kerry will destroy them. Mafia tactics.

You've seen how his hitmen have treated O'Neill on national television. No respect. Intimidation.

The LibMedia sure are avoiding much mention of who actually makes up the 'band.'

Their names, their records, their connections with Kerry don't seem relevant for the LibMedia. Now, the Swift Boaters who are opposed to Kerry, now, their records and names are being splattered and denigrated whenever possible.

Did all the 'band' serve on Kerry's boat? That distinction seems very important for the Kerry campaign and Media.

Exactly who are members of this 'band'?

Also, they're not allowed to talk to anyone without campaign staff's permission. What are they hiding ?
