DID THE DOG GO INTO CAMBODIA? DID THE DOG BARK AT THE CIA MAN, THUS PROMPTING THE CIA MAN TO GIVE KERRY THE HAT? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DOG?
This Washington Times story by John McCaslin raises a host of new questiosn for John Kerry:
"VC surfaces A new four-legged angle -- actually a dog named "VC" -- has suddenly materialized surrounding Sen. John Kerry 's swift boat service in Vietnam.
In a 2004 presidential candidate questionnaire for Humane USA, Mr. Kerry was asked whether any pets have had an impact on his life.
"I have always had pets in my life, and there are a few that I remember very fondly," Mr. Kerry replied. "When I was serving on a Swift Boat in Vietnam, my crewmates and I had a dog we called VC.
"One day as our Swift Boat was heading up a river, a mine exploded hard under our boat," he continued. "After picking ourselves up, we discovered VC was MIA (missing in action). Several minutes of frantic search followed, after which we thought we'd lost him. We were relieved when another boat called asking if we were missing a dog."
Said Mr. Kerry: "It turns out VC was catapulted from the deck of our boat and landed, confused but unhurt, on the deck of another boat in our patrol."
J.J. Scheele, program director of Humane USA, confirmed yesterday that her organization did, in fact, receive the above statement from the Kerry campaign.
No military records on Mr. Kerry's Web site, which aides say is a complete accounting, mention a mine exploding under his boat or any dog. The only report of a mine detonating "near" Mr. Kerry's PCF 94 was March 13, 1969, when Mr. Kerry says he was injured and a man knocked overboard."
Licorice the Hamster.
VC the Dog.
Kerry's nautical stories always seem to have someone, or some animal, falling into the water to be rescued.
I keep wondering the same also ... I'm also wondering if that is a bruise on his arm
I don't know the answer to that
I have a brother that joined the Marines back in 72 and all the years he was in .. the top of his hair was never that long
I think he was serving off the coast of Nam.
Who would name their dog for their enemy?
It would be like NYers naming their pets for the hi jackers.
This is starting to make Gore and Clinton look like amateurs.
Good job. You both caught what I had totally missed, namely that Kerry was on the USS Gridley at that time. That means that the Opinion Journal has made a mistake and this quote doesn't qualify as a Kerry whopper. Fair is fair, even to a pathological liar like JFK.
Wonder if the bump on the jerk's arm is a Purple Heart wound?
Obviously he meant his gay "New Soldiers" after he left Vietnam that slurred their country.
Well .. if we can find the date the picture was taken, we'll know
John Kerry is Mr. Neutron, with Theresa Heinz Kerry as Mrs. S.C.U.M.
I've heard this story before but it was not involving Kerry.
They sure enough do.
"Dims are unable to field a sane candidate two elections in the row."
That's the reason they are Democrats!
Kerry is a gift that keeps on giving. He has been reduced to nothing more than a joke....a bad joke!
Of course! Teddy Salad, the CIA undercover agent exposed by the Pythons...
There once was a pup named VC
Who rode boats with other Swiftees
A blast from behind
Caused by an enemy mine
Was seared in the mind of the nominee
Did VC land on feet or on hip
When tossed off of that small little ship?
He was only a pup
Not yet a grown up
And already knew how to flop and to flip
Where had he learned this neat little trick
To dodge and to fake and to slip
It must have been John
His friend al along
Who taught him to flip flop so smooth and so quick
Like grandma' always told me ,"always tell the truth and you won't have to remember every word you say".
Here's a doggie story for you.
A mine explosion so hard it threw VC from one boat to another. Yet, miraculously, Kerry's boat could carry on.
