Veteran John O'Neill will be on CNN between 5:15 and 5:45pm today...
John O'Neill / CNN ^ | April 20, 2004 | Interesting Times

John O'Neill, the Vietnam veteran who took on John Kerry in the 1971 debate on American "war crimes" that was recently rebroadcast on C-SPAN, will be interviewed by Wolf Blitzer on CNN this evening. O'Neill, who commanded a Swift boat in the same division as Kerry -- though for considerably longer -- more than held his own against Kerry during a 90-minute special broadcast of the Dick Cavett Show. Now he is challenging Senator Kerry to continue the debate they began 33 years ago, in an effort to clear the names of the Vietnam veterans Kerry once accused of war crimes "committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command."

Kerry's book from post Vietnam will deliver the death blow. No wonder Dennis the Menace remained in the race.

O'Neill tells Blitzer that the Swift Boat vets have organized and are coming out against Kerry -- except for the seven or eight pro-Kerry activists that Kerry keeps recyclying.

Wow. Seldom do you see something "deliver" like that one did!

I figured it was the same guys over and over. And wouldn't they have been with Kerry, so THEIR "story" depends on his, right?

We all already KNEW that! Maybe the rest of the country will now. This man is HONEST and John Kerry is a LIAR! Kerry NEEDS to release his RECORDS, ALL OF THEM, including the ones still at the Pentagon.

THE NEW SOLDIER by John Kerry -- published in 1971 -- a disgrace. Shows on the cover an insult to the Iwo Jima flag raising -- just like John O'Neill said. Kerry has suppressed the book since it was published -- Kerry supporters buy up every copy they can find and destroy them. It is such a rare book it can cost as much as $1500.00 a copy if you can find one. The book dishonors Vietnam Veterans who fought for the US. Kerry has refused to allow republication rights. You can view the book on www.wintersoldier.com.

From your lips to God's ears. I'm STILL concerned with Kerry's imploding that someone else actually stands a chance to screw things up for Bush. I'm pretty sure they already know that, which is why they are pulling spending on ads, because they just might need a massive media blitz right after the convention.

CORRECTION: "...Kerry couldn't tie the shoes of some of the REAL heroes who served in Coastal Division 11."
Just want people to know he made a clear distinction between sKerry and others who served so courageously--

Michael Meehan, looking smug, trying to defend Kerry -- THE DEBATE HAS BEGUN -- O'NEILL MADE THE KERRY BOOK A SUBJECT OF THE CAMPAIGN. Senator Kerry -- ALLOW THE BOOK TO BE SEEN -- that's the challenge O'Neill just put forth. SENATOR, SHOW US THE BOOK.

The Book on John Kerry
 

From the February 16, 2004 issue: A look at the senator's 1971 antiwar opus, "The New Soldier."
by David Skinner
02/16/2004, Volume 009, Issue 22

 
HOW CONVENIENT that Douglas Brinkley's hagiographic "Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War" should be hitting bookstores just as Kerry's star ascends in the Democratic primaries. Less convenient, perhaps, is the fact that another Kerry book is getting hot right now: "The New Soldier," published in 1971, for which Kerry shares authorial credit with the organization Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Hot not in sales--only a tiny number of copies seem to be around--but in price.

Awesome interview. I liked John's line about Kerry getting "less votes than a Republic would in South Boston" from the Swift boat guys. Also his rejoinder to Blitzer's mushy question about whether he could "forgive" Kerry since he'd kinda pretended to apologize -- "It's not a matter of forgiveness, but of fitness." Perfect.
