I don't think so.

Kerrys people have been negotiating with Syria for quiet some time now.

I think this is Kerrys October surprise to Bush.

This friend is a Hill staffer.....he could be wrong or hyping his own theory, but he has told me that this is the rumour going around Washington for a few days now....it could be something different though, just thought I pass it along.

Could it possibly be the story Rush told about Kerry stating that it was honorable for American soldiers to die under the UN flag, but not under the U.S. flag?

Either the Washington Post or Washington Times.

Let's hope it's the Post. The Times is more easily ignored by the MSM clowns.

Do I sense skepticism from you? Why I believe I do. I am too because I am not feeling real optimistic about the election. But, the poster that mentioned the meetings by a campaign person with Iran and Syria might have something.

Do ya'll remember Richard Holbrooke on Fox (I'm not sure which show) - the host asked him how Kerry could be so sure that more countries (allies) would join the war in Iraq if Kerry were elected, especially since they have all said that regardless of who is elected they will not change their minds? Holbrooke said (I'm pretty sure) that "when I was over there recently, I got a different feeling". Also, whenever anyone has tried to pin down Kerry in the past, he has made cryptic comments like "there are things I can do but I can't reveal them before election".

Anyone else on this thread remember any of above or am I hallucinating again?

We just got a tip......that a major newspaper will break a front-page story Monday morning that could create a serious problem for the Kerry campaign. We don't yet have any details, but it relates to a foreign policy issue, and it will call into question--amazingly enough--John Kerry's truthfulness.

Here's my prediction....

That crazy eyed female Kerry adviser (not Estrich, the other one with the bad hair) will announce that they have indisputable evidence that the CIA has created an invisible George W. Bush clone. That clone was then shrunk-down to twelve inches, air dropped into Havana, and on October 21st tripped Castro as he was leaving the stage.



As proof they will display at a press conference his mini invisible shoes, mini invisible BDU's, and mini invisible parachute ...which no one but her will be able to see. Their base of rabid supporters will go wild and demand impeachment. The rest of America will vote (literally) with their feet on November 2nd and Kerry will be crushed in the resulting landslide.

Sounds like his Paris meeting. If what you say is true, and they can link both stories, this should be good.

Some toad posted a similar thing earlier in the week about our guy. Said that a high-ranking Kerry official said they have something on Bush and to "be afraid, be very afraid". Haven't seen it yet! I don't really buy into this stuff.

However, if it is indeed true, darn good for us.

I hate when unsubstantiated stuff like this comes up. Most times its just crap. If it was REALLY a big news item--SOMEONE would have put it out immediately. It just raises expectations (like the STOLEN HOUR thing,,,,like Slick's impeachment testimony,,,like the repeated 'October surprises')--and if those high expectations are not met, the story becomes a non-story--ending up being a net minus.

Or worse, NOTHING happens and the resulting disappointment can de-energize some support and supporters (i.e. Sinclair and Slick testimony mentioned above). We've been burned too many times already.

If there is something there--JUST PUT IT OUT! Don't give us this "I have a secret and I'm not telling yet" crap,,,,and more importantly, don't give the opposition time to prepare their spin with their well-thought out, tortured logic and phoney defenses!!!

JUST DO IT ASAP,,,don't heighten non-existent and/or false expectations.

Mike Krempasky at the Redstate blog has now added this tidbit:

Stay tuned for Monday morning, folks. A story will break that the Kerry campaign will have to respond to. Call it another chapter in the story of John Kerry making stuff up. And while RedStaters didn't write a single word of it - I'm proud to say that some folks involved in this site (and at least one other blogger) certainly pointed in the right direction. (More on that later)

My friend who I have been emailing all night (it is night for me in Singapore, actually one forty four in the morning) is thinking that this may be the story since the buzz on the Hill is that Kerry has been sending some foreign advisors to Hassad and the Mullocrats in Tehran...but he cautioned me that it could easily be something entirely different.

The story Monday may have the following words....Iraq, Paris, France, Oil, Coalition, Foreign, Policy, Plan, Treason, 1985, Discharge, or other words found in the Oxford Dictionary... Now there's a TIP!

I agree that we MUST not speculate. We must resist the strong urge because we could lessen the impact of something big and help to innoculate the charge beforehand.

People will be trolling these threads looking for something, anything to tip them off. Please let's not help them.

I await the news Monday. I shall say no more about this topic.

If the "story" is confirmed by enough reliable sources or a "smoking gun" then any of the majors would go with it.

The only item that comes to mind would be Kerry's discharge and subsequent hearings or {guessing here) an interview video with General Giap of the NVA saying Kerry's antiwar activities were crucial to continuing the war against the Americans.

Who were the campaign officials Kerry sent to meet with Iran and Syria? How recent were those Kerry contacts? And what promises did Kerry make to those governments?

Then my friend (the hill staffer's) theory is probably wrong since while treasonous, John Kerry's emissaries to Syrian and Iran are nothing he's lied about...must be something else.

>>It's something that the Kerry campaign will be forced to address regarding a previous criticism of Bush's foreign policy<<

That won't be good enough for the "undecided." The "undecided" are not undecided about world events and anyone who thinks that's their problem is in for a rude awakening.

So the scandal has to be something more simple than the War...something more personal and dirtier like: Kerry is a Closet Lesbian.

Anything that requires people (especially the undecided) to think, will not work.

Former Clinton aids have been negoating with Syria. I haven't heard anything about this lately.

I think they are keeping it close to their chest and saving it for the October surprise to hit Bush over the head with it a week before elections.

Timing is everything....as they say.

There wouldn't be enough time left for Bush to do anything about it before the election.

Kerry might ride into the election on that horse.

Thank you...let's keep quiet and do not speculate. You can visit our friendly blogs, etc. but here we have DU's that are running around like Lawrence O"Donnell last night hyperventilating trying to find out info to take it to the enemy. Look what happened to Sinclair...we can wait a few hours..

It's been around the internet for a while now that Kerry has people in Syria discussing their wmd's and what happened to Saddams.

This is a crock. If Kerry had people in Syria, we'd know about it.

And who are these "people"?

There's lots of crap on internet, and this is the biggest pile yet.

"At this point, the media has way too much invested in electing Kerry to report anything that would sink his election."

With Kerry's odds of winning (without the 'rats planned massive vote fraud) declining, would the Democratic Leadership and their friends in the Liberal Media release such damning info on Kerry to force him off the ticket for Hillary?

Even though, Hillary would lose big-time, it would still give her advanced funding for 2008.

Dan Rather and the Liberal Media would have a collective orgasm over the thought that Hillary could soon be President and bring Bill back into the White House as her better half.

Anything related to Syria is far to esoteric to matter a whit to anyone dumb enough to be undecided at this point.

Nothing from here on in can be a bombshell or October Surprise other than some domestic pecadillo like Bush's DUI or something.

Well, looks like the Wash Times, could be a Gertz story. Everyone saying its about something Kerry was lying about regarding Bush Foreign policy. Something about North Korea, maybe Tora Bora crap. Kerry lies so much, its hard to keep track. How about a Iraq had ties with Bin Laden story.

Hardly as this involves a "foreign policy" issue. If Kerry sent emissaries to Syria that would look pretty bad and kill him with the Jewish voters.

Well, looks like the Wash Times, could be a Gertz story.

Gertz isn't real reliable (routinely goes with basically unsourced rumors) and the MSM studiously ignores the Washington Times.

If it's Gertz and a Wash Times story, no matter what it is, it won't affect the election in the slightest.
