Another Vets Group Exposes Kerry's 'Stolen Honor'
A new documentary will soon be released that may do more damage to John Kerry than even the devastating Swift Boat Veterans' ad.
It's called "Stolen Honor" -- and remember, you heard it here first.
The documentary, just weeks from release, details what his Vietnam critics say was John Kerry's betrayal of America.
In a description of the new film, the producers explain that "when John Kerry appeared before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the spring of 1971, his testimony sent shock waves throughout America and the world. ... Lt. Kerry's widely televised statements were dramatic and persuasive, made all the more credible by the fact he had been there, said he had witnessed many of these same atrocities."
The info sheet on the film continues:
"That single act earned for Kerry the lasting enmity of Vietnam veterans, especially those who had borne the brunt of his accusations, that small percentage of soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen who actually served on the frontlines. Many of these combat veterans would carry the scars of their service for life. Kerry's repudiation of their sacrifice represented yet another war wound, one that would never heal. As compelling as Kerry's Senate testimony was, these men knew it was lacking in one key element ... truth. They knew from their own combat experiences virtually all his allegations were lies; the U.S. military would never countenance such brutality. And, they also knew his actions were a deliberate betrayal of all of them, especially the more than 58,000 who lost their lives in the Vietnam War.
"But, perhaps, more than any living group of combat veterans, it was America's POWs who suffered most, forced to endure the immediate consequences of Kerry's treacherous falsehoods. In 1971, some 700 of these men were reported as captured or missing in action, most presumed held prisoner by the North Vietnamese Communists in such places as the notorious Hanoi Hilton. Already subjected to years of torture, solitary confinement and unspeakable psychological and physical abuse, their lives were literally hanging by a thread when Kerry issued his damning testimony. In mere moments, Kerry had willingly given the Vietnamese Communists what they had spent years of torture and blood-letting to drag out of their American hostages, an unqualified 'confession' they were all war criminals."
"Stolen Honor" is being produced by Red, White and Blue Productions, Inc., an independent producer of documentaries based in Harrisburg, Pa. Carlton Sherwood, president of Red, White and Blue Productions, is a longtime newspaper and TV investigative reporter. A Pulitzer Prize and Peabody Award winner, Sherwood has investigated how the behavior of John Kerry as a leader of the anti-war movement during the Vietnam era impacted American POWs.
The results are shocking and no doubt will ignite a new wave of controversy in this year's already overheated political race.
Editor's Note: The book by B.G. Burkett "Stolen Valor" first blew the whistle on John Kerry's Vietnam War lies. Make sure you get a copy of this important book and check out our freeee offer -- Go Here Now.
I've been emailing this story to my liberal, "open minded" friends who told me seeing Fahrenheit 9-11 was something even Bush supporters should do, to prove their open-mindedness, or whatever.
I'm sure all those F 9-11 lovers will be checking this out. Yeah. Sure.
The hits keep coming! Its not just the Swifties the mainstream media has to shut up and make go away...
Thanks for posting...
Thanks......Can hardly wait till this one is aired....Does anyone know when, where it will be shown?
Michael who ?
LOL. They have a good point.
No. I don't know where it'll be shown. It doesn't say on their site. It just has samples.
Some competition for Moore in the "documentary" arena? I like it!
Kerry was a real media hog in those early days and he left them with a lot of great material for it. I'm sure much of it will have to be left on the cutting room floor for lack of time to cover it all.
Wish I had the money of George Soros....I'd pay to have it put on CNN....(I know!...But the rats are the ones who need to see it, not the choir.)
"Mr. Sherwood is a political hack funding by the Bush smear machine".
"No one should question John Kerry's service in Vietnam".
"John Kerry has sharepnal in his leg, while George Bush didn't show up for his physical".
"Tim, it is really sad that the George Bush/Dick Cheney smear maching continues this trend. It is because they are behind in the polls and have no record to run on".
Ok, that was my impression of the Kooky camp's response to this. Everyone prepare for it because you know that's what they will say.
Now, if you don't mind, I'm going to shower with steel brush. Thinking like a libertard shouldn't be done often, but is necessary to prepare for the enemy...unfortunately, even thinking like them makes me feel horribly dirty.
