KERRY FIT TO SUE 'UNFIT' AUTHOR
November 18, 2004 -- LIBERAL loser John Kerry might be planning to strike back at John O'Neill, the "Unfit for Command" author who claims some of the credit for Kerry's defeat, sources say.
In the book, published by Regnery not long before the election, O'Neill who, like Kerry, commanded swift boats in Vietnam attacked Kerry's war record and branded him a traitor.
O'Neill sold over 800,000 copies and his group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, raised $25 million to battle the Kerry campaign and ran TV ads trashing the candidate. Former Sen. Bob Dole endorsed the group.
O'Neill says he wrote the book because Kerry called his fellow Vietnam vets monsters, terrorists and war criminals, for which he has never apologized.

If Kerry wants to sue, let him go ahead. Of course then he'd have to reveal what's in those records he refused to disclose up until the end of the campaign. BRING IT ON!!!
FORM 180 please Mr. Kerry!!!!
God help Kerry if he tries. If he does, he'll see what a REAL conservative backlash looks like...in spades.
Who the hell is John Kerry? Isn't he one of those historical footnotes or something?
Mr. John O'Neill was begging Kerry to sue him.... Again, I say BRING IT ON!!!
Kerry doesn't have the balls. He's all talk, and even that's cowardly.
Let him sue, then for once the truth about this commie traitor might actually be revealed! Go for it Effin K !
How about socialist North Vietnam Vet John Kerry... that has a nice ring to it.
I hope he does bring charges against O'Neil. I can't think of a better way for O'Neil's message to be spread far and wide, as Kerry goes under for the fourth time.
Please, please let this be true.....
BRING IT ON!!
If Kerry does sue, this will end up being alot of fun. Of course, the main witnesses Kerry will have to rely on his suit will be his comrades in North Vietnam.
Fortunately the Old Media forgot about that.
> "O'Neill, who charged that Kerry faked his wounds
> and won his medals under false pretenses, ..."
The NYP is mistaken. The wounds were real, but at least
two were accidentally self-inflicted and did not qualify
for a Purple Heart.
O'Neill invited Kerry to sue for libel back when UFC
went on sale. Assuming this story is true, why is
Kerry doing it now? O'Neill will almost certainly not
settle, and a trial will force Kerry to answer many
crucial questions he dodged during the campaign.
This could just be noise - to make it look like Kerry has a leg to stand on - so to speak.
O'Reilly was hard on the guys - along with the rest of the media - saying they had been dis-credited - and perhaps Kerry is playing along by putting out the notice - He might really want to run again in 2008 - and like the Hill- he's putting out the groundwork -
Be interesting if he did in fact do it though - but I have to believe he isn't that stupid - But - One never knows -
I hope by 2008 - Kerry's "first" book is well read by everyone - what better way to know him -
I think he was an answer to one of the questions in a Trivial Pursuit game I was playing the other night.
No on could remember his name, though.
The truth is an absolute defense.
I doubt that John O'Neill can be intimidated.
