John F. Kerry's Cambodia Adventure
Meet the Press | January 30, 2005 | Donald J. Taylor

Posted on 01/30/2005 8:14:45 AM PST by DJ Taylor

John F. Kerry’s traitorous association with communist organizations seems to go back farther than we suspected. He just reaffirmed on Meet the Press that he was not only in Cambodia in December 1968 but that he went there to deliver weapons to the Khmer Rouge. As we all know, the Khmer Rouge was the communist insurgency in Cambodia that eventually overthrew the legitimate government and murdered millions of Cambodian civilians.

Of course, Kerry was never in Cambodia in 1968, and every time he tells that lie he digs himself in just a little bit deeper.

I didn't watch this. I heard he said he would sign his 180?? Were there stipulations to his singing it?

Of course. He wanted everyone making accusations against him to sign it to.

Yes, he said he would sign his SF 180 if all his accusers would do the same.

We have the world wide web to archive all of this for us, and we will indeed use this against them in 2006 and 2008.

Hmmm...

Now if you look at it another way and say you believe him, it would mean that he is a war criminal. Why?  Because he delivered arms to the murderers of millions!

He said "yes" as quickly as he could to a Russert question and talked right over it. No timeline, no details. He will never sign.

Kerry is a self-admitted war criminal. The only reason he hasn't been charged is Teddy protects him and he lies so often he might have been lying about being a war criminal.

He certainly was lying about the rest of us who fought in Nam.

I saw it and the only way Form 180 could ever get signed by Kerry is if Russert pulled it out right then an dtehre and said, "Here, Senator, sign it"

I kept thinking that Russert might do just that. Now that would have been something. Sure enough, within a minute, Kerry was dancing about demanding that some unnamed folks sign a Form 180 too. All his education has got him is the ability to double-talk.

Khmer Rouge , name given to native Cambodian Communists. Khmer Rouge soldiers, aided by North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops, began a large-scale insurgency against government forces in 1970, quickly gaining control over more than two thirds of the country.

The strength of the Khmer Rouge rose dramatically from around 3,000 in 1970 to more than 30,000 in 1973, enabling most of the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops to withdraw. In 1975 the movement, led by Pol Pot, overthrew the Cambodian government, establishing “Democratic Kampuchea.”

The new government carried out a radical program of evacuating cities, closing schools and factories, and herding the population into collective farms. Intellectuals and skilled workers were assassinated, and a total of perhaps as many as 1.5 million died, inclusive of starvation and forced marches.

Thank you John F'in Kerry.

He's terrified about his senate opponent in '06, and he should be.

Another weasel at work.

He said he would sign his 180; no pre-conditions attached.

A few questions later, Russert brought up the records of
his critics and at that time, AFTER he had flatly agreed to
sign the 180, Kerry also said he expected others to sign 180s as well.

Don't let Kerry wiggle out of this one.

December 1968 but that he went there to deliver weapons to the Khmer Rouge.

There was no Khmer Rouge in 1968. They formed after that. Without looking it up, I believe it was in 1971.

Quit picking on Kerry, he's obviously suffering from early onset Alzheimers and is not responsible for his utterances -- he's a Democrat -- lobotomys are mandatory.

From the transcript:

MR. RUSSERT: Would you sign Form 180?

SEN. KERRY: But everything, Tim...

MR. RUSSERT: Would you sign Form 180?

SEN. KERRY: Yes, I will. But everything that we put in it, Tim--everything we put in--I mean, everything that was out was a full documentation of all of the medical records, all of the fitness reports. And I'd call on those who have challenged me, let's see their records. I want to see the records of each of those people who have put up a challenge, because some of them have some serious questions in them, and it hasn't been appropriate...

MR. RUSSERT: So they should sign Form 180s for themselves as well?

SEN. KERRY: You bet.

From the transcript:

SEN. KERRY: I still have the hat that he gave me, and I hope the guy would come out of the woodwork and say, "I'm the guy who went up with John Kerry. We delivered weapons to the Khmer Rouge on the coastline of Cambodia." We went out of Ha Tien, which is right in Vietnam. We went north up into the border. And I have some photographs of that, and that's what we did. So, you know, the two were jumbled together, but we were on the Cambodian border on Christmas Eve, absolutely.

When does Kerry run for the Senate again? 2006 or 2008. On MTP Russert said it was 2008.

“All his education has got him is the ability to double-talk.”

I think it is more than that. It has been said that to be a good liar one must be extremely intelligent, for a good liar must be able to remember not only the truth but also the lie he as told. John F. Kerry has told far too many lies for his feeble mind to retain.

"But everything that we put in it"

He doesn't fill out his own medical records. This is an admission by Kerry that he forged government documents. This ties in with his 3 medal award certificates, the last of which was done in the Carter administration, years after he served and Lehman doesn't remember seeing.

Kerry said the election in Iraq is not legitimate because the Sunni turn out was too low. That is nothing new. Kennedy and Boxer said the presidential election in Ohio was invalid because the Democratic turn out was too low.
