Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), President Barack Obamas nominee for Secretary of StateHillary Clinton is expected to resign from the position this springhas often been critical of U.S. foreign policy, likening some American soldiers in Vietnam to Genghis Kahn and to war criminals, and being Messianic and fueling international animosity, among other criticisms.
Back on Apr. 22, 1971, Kerry testified on behalf of the Veterans Against the Vietnam War before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In his testimony, he said, [S]everal months ago in Detroit, we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged and many very highly decorated veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia, not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.
On Jan. 2007 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Kerry criticized the foreign policy of President George W. Bush, claiming it isolated America and made the country a pariah.

Let’s just cut to the chase, Kerry should have been treated like the traitor he is.
This alleged human makes me want to puke.
More bowing in in order. We are soooo screwed.
zer0 to media and Congress ... What is the problem? sKerry is the perfect replacement to help right all the wrongs Americans have done on this planet.
media and Congress ... sitting in awe and nodding in full agreement.
Don't think I missed anything ... and will be missing soon many of our once living because sKerry and zer0 righted another wrong. New sec. of state = same or similar sec. of state.
All part of the scam. Kerry is appointed so the republicans can act like they’re upset. They’ll count the votes and decide who will be hurt the most by an affirmative vote. They’ll be authorized to vote “no”. Then all the sheeple will be happy. The libs got what they want. The republicans feel good because they know there are so many good men in congress and one day they’ll be in charge and change everything and save the country.
He should not be rewarded for the slander against our troops, that said, McCain is backing him
Put Kerry under oath. The very first question to him should be what discharge he received when he was discharged. What discharge was on his original DD 214. I would be willing to bet my wages for next month that he originally was discharged with a 3912 general discharge and it was later upgraded to honorable.
The next questions should be about who he met in Paris and what was said and discussed with them. At that time the Senate will never approve of him as Secretary of State.
The problem here is two-fold. I think McCain went over before Kerry. They should have both been prosecuted ~ still can be.
Well, birds of a feather and all that.........
I have no clue about McCain and no memory of anything he did that was public. BUT I was in Vietnam when Kerry was picking rice out of his butt claiming that it was a battle wound and talking representatives of North Vietnam in Paris. I believe he was still technically active duty which makes this open treason. We need him questioned under oath about his activities in Paris, and his discharge.
I am getting more depressed every day....The Reps are a clown show—at best.............. Hildebeast skates like Bill did......... Americans say “Ben who?” over a dead ambassador,and now THIS!
Lurch, aka “Jengis Khan”, should be rotting in Ft Leavenworth...the only redeeming factor ,if there even is one..is he has to live with TAHHHH-RAY-ZA ( who they doped up with Valium for the hearing).
