Kerry In Cambodia Debunked By Kerry Crewmate
Kerry Crew Member and Supporter Does Not "Recall" Senator In Cambodia
Washington, DC - Swift Boat Veterans for Truth today, again, called on Democratic presidential candidate Senator John Kerry to set the record straight on whether he was, or was not, in Cambodia.
In today's Boston Globe, an article by Michael Kranish further calls into question whether Kerry was ever in Cambodia.
"Michael Medeiros, who served aboard the No. 94 with Kerry and appeared with him at the Democratic National Convention, vividly recalled an occasion on which Kerry and the crew chased an enemy to the Cambodian border but did not go beyond the border," the Globe's Kranish writes. "Yet Medeiros said he could not recall dropping off special forces in Cambodia or going inside Cambodia with Kerry." (Boston Globe, August 18th, 2004)
When pressed further about this incident, Michael Meehan, a spokesman for Senator Kerry, could not produce any documentation supporting Kerry's claim that he was in Cambodia.
"Separately, according to Meehan's statement, Kerry crossed into Cambodia on a covert mission to drop off special operations forces. In an interview, Meehan said there was no paperwork for such missions and he could not supply a date. That makes it hard to ascertain or confirm what happened." (Boston Globe, August 18th, 2004)
The Boston Globe? As I was reading this, a formation of pigs flew by my office window...
yeah... Something's up.
Either this Kranish guy is trying to cover his butt for being a Kerry stooge his entire career or this is a set up.
I watched "Killing Fields" last night. I could have sworn it was "Kerry" on the patrol boat carrying the reporter up the river.
ooooh... I forgot about that... Good call.
She's on her BROOM!
BOGEY TEN O'CLOCK!
What is it, within the liberal Dems, that makes them liars? Most likely, given what they stand for, they have to be. Ala Clinton, Gore, etc. ---
Kerry is a psychopathic liar, from the getg-go. This guy rewrites truth on a daily basis to suit his agenda, or does he just have a real mental disease?? Either way, this is not presidental material. Someone you would trust the lives of Americans with?? Who is Kerry's enemy today? -- and who will it be tomorrow?? And will it change the week after that too??
The fact that a big percentage of this country would and will vote for Kerry, neglecting totally what and who he is, is beyond frightful...and they will do it for the ONE AND ONLY REASON that he wears the DEMOCRAT label...would it matter if Al Capone or Adolf Hitler were in his place??
Probably not, as long as they wear THE LABEL.
God help America...
First of all, Kerry didn't dispute it, his campaign did, and all they did was spin away the obvious problems with Kerry's account - and gave no solid proof to back up their assertions.
Well....I think, basically, they are LAZY and NARCISSISTIC....and by lying they NEVER think they need to be held responsible.
Spot on!!! Always want someone else to do their bidding for them, and be responsible for thier actions and lives.
Good little Socialists -- I still vote for a one-way ticket to a fine Socialist country for ALL of them...then we could get back to the business of running the REAL America!!!!
My email to Kranish 8/15:

It makes you look like a fawning school girl who will fall for any line.
Doesn't that bother you just a little?
John Kerry Apocalypse Now" on Oct 14, 1979 in the Boston Herald.
John Kerry has completely reversed his story about being in Cambodia on Christmas Eve of 1968. Rather than showing some spine and admitting his lie and apologizing, he clutches to a ridiculous story of running guns into Cambodia. To even raise this story after being caught in a 35 year lie, he should have at least multiple witnesses and documentation. This is the equivalent of Woodwards and Bernstein admitting there was never any Deep Throat and they made up the whole story with John Dean! These two stories wove the fabric of Americas dark days.
Kerry has used his false eye witness account of various war crimes to damage the Military, the CIA and Americas pride. Thirty five years of repeating these eye witness accounts was the foundation of the anti-America crowd and they were complete lies. He has had to admit that he was not in Cambodia which exposes the remainder of his war crime claims.
You can tell everything about the character of a man in how he reacts under pressure. The first time someone Brings it on he shows his complete lack of spine. Rather than saying that he exaggerated the Cambodia story in his exuberance to end a war, he sticks with the same lie! He claims a ridiculous story of sneaking a Swift Boat with its loud twin diesels into Cambodia for the CIA, illegally running guns for the Communist resistance. Rather than simply admitting his guilt, he has to impugn the CIA and President Nixon again! This boat needs to be scuttled.
Whether John Kerry hates Presidents LBJ, Richard Nixon or impersonates JFK; it does not matter, he has no right to continue his lies about the Vietnam War. He is an admitted liar about one of his stories and has no right for anyone to believe him about the remaining war crime charges. Millions of us believed what John Kerry said during the war and felt he had no reason to make these stories up. We believed he was a man of virtue in an immoral war, but we were wrong. How could any man do or say what he did and said to hurt his country??
It is the highest honor to be an eyewitness to a war crime, it is the criminal to falsely accuse someone of war crimes. Since he has never found any other witnesses or had any of his fellow accusers sign affidavits, we can now assume that his entire testimony was a series of lies. He has never been able to give actual instances to any of his so-called war crimes, only generalities. He continues this method of lying with the newest Cambodia story. Rather than coming clean with America about his past, he takes the easiest path and continues the masquerade.
Why wont Kerry tell the truth about this story. It is simple really. He knows that the Cambodia lie disqualifies Kerry for Senator let alone President of the United States during a time of war. Once the country understands the magnitude of this lie or that anyone is capable of doing what he did, he is no longer trustworthy enough for the Oval Office. To live this lie for 35 years and even as late as last November with the CIA hat story, he needs to put his facade to rest. Kerry for the good of John Kerry and the country needs to come clean with his Cambodia lie, his false atrocities testimony then apologize to his fellow Vietnam veterans, America, and resign from the race. Richard Nixon did the Honorable thing, now is the time for his false witness to finally do his.
Pray for W and Our Troops
"What is it, within the liberal Dems, that makes them liars?"
you have it exactly right!
I was in parts of Heather Locklear in my dreams on Christmas 1990............ to heck with Cambodia.
How do you get UNSEARED? That's next!
