    VVAW FBI files ^ | Various dates | FBI Files
    FBI Documents indicate that while John Kerry was with the VVAW, VVAW leaders met with KGB agents in the US. “VVAW collusion with foreign spies? “The Diplomatic List published by U.S. Department of State, in 1971 listed Grigoriy Sergeyvich Milhaylovskiy as an assistant Military Attache, Embassy of the U.S.S.R., Washington, D.C.” Over 50 entry's of my research into John Kerry and the FBI files concerning Kerry's group Vietnam Veterans Againest the War, (VVAW). I posted these during the last election cycle and thought I would repost now.

    JOHN KERRY: AMBITION AND OPPORTUNISM As new information continues to becomes available about the radical activities and affiliations of John Kerry, one has to ask the following question -- did the KGB and the Communist Party USA use John Kerry to further their goals of a communist victory in Vietnam? The evidence strongly suggests that they did. -- snip -- As a former undercover member of several of the leading Communist-controlled "anti-war" movement national groups (member of National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam [Mobe]; founding conference member of New Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam...

    It was the summer of 1972 and John Kerry's group, the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, was in the midst of an anti-war march through the streets of downtown Gainesville. ... I was disgusted to see that they were not only carrying the American flag upside down, they were carrying the flag of the communist Viet Cong as well. ...The freedom to protest is an important one. ...However, we did not go into harm's way to allow our fellow citizens to help our enemy. ...Now, we have some new Hollywood military experts. The latest is comedian Bill Maher, who made...
  • Debunking a spitting image - (says Viet Vets never spat upon when they returned to USA!)

    05/01/2005 8:53:50 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 110 replies · 2,991+ views
    STORIES ABOUT spat-upon Vietnam veterans are like mercury: Smash one and six more appear. It's hard to say where they come from. For a book I wrote in 1998 I looked back to the time when the spit was supposedly flying, the late 1960s and early 1970s. I found nothing. No news reports or even claims that someone was being spat on. What I did find is that around 1980, scores of Vietnam-generation men were saying they were greeted by spitters when they came home from Vietnam. There is an element of urban legend in the stories in that their...
  • Jane Fonda's Apology: So Far I'm Sorry I Got Caught - (says it all!)

    04/22/2005 7:10:56 PM PDT · by CHARLITE · 47 replies · 2,746+ views
    It’s no coincidence that Jane Fonda’s new book, My Life So Far, precedes the release of her new movie Monster-in-Law. That’s just good old-fashioned Hollywood promotion; however, something went wrong on the way to Larry King’s forum – she did not apologize for her activities in Vietnam. Yes, her publicity blitz expresses regrets, but there is no heartfelt apology. When the avuncular interviewer actually asked a challenging question about her nefarious goings on it was clear Jane hadn’t rehearsed her lines – here’s her sincere response: “I’m sorry I was photographed sitting on an anti-aircraft gun.” Wow, her arrogance and...

    LUBBOCK - • Provocative debate on the Vietnam War's effect on the 2004 election wraps up a three-day conference at Texas Tech. "The Tactical Nuclear Weapons Option in Vietnam" was informative. "Re-education and Its Aftermath" was moving. Then there was "The Vietnam War and the Election Year," as seen and told by former members of Vietnam Veterans Against the War and members of the Swift boat Veterans for Truth. This was some academic conference. "Welcome to the steel-cage death match" portion of the 5th Triennial Vietnam Symposium, remarked one panelist. The Vietnam Center at Texas Tech University saved its most...

    BY JOHN REYNOLDS AVALANCHE-JOURNAL The United States lost the war in Vietnam in part because the U.S. people ultimately came to hate the war and hate themselves because of the war. That legacy, according to Cornell University professor Keith Taylor, is important because it continues to permeate how the U.S. public approaches military conflicts 30 years after the fall of Saigon. Taylor was one of several speakers who addressed aspects of the Vietnam War's legacy on the second day of the fifth triennial Vietnam Symposium. The symposium is held by Texas Tech's Vietnam Center, which also maintains the largest non-governmental...

    In the last few days there has been widespread and grossly inaccurate media coverage concerning my analysis of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, coverage that has resulted in defamation of my character and threats against my life. What I actually said has been lost, indeed turned into the opposite of itself, and I hope the following facts will be reported at least to the same extent that the fabrications have been. The piece circulating on the internet was developed into a book, On the Justice of Roosting Chickens. Most of the book...

    Scott Ritter may be the Bush reelection team’s worse nightmare. The former UN chief weapons inspector in Iraq and card-carrying Republican is barnstorming America with a blunt message: George W. Bush’s war on Iraq was waged on a “bodyguard of lies.” “We need regime change, and we need it quick,” Ritter told a gathering of peace activists in New Jersey on Sunday. “George W. Bush does not have the right…to represent the American people, if he told a lie. And he told a whopper.” That whopper, said Ritter, was claiming that the US government had evidence that Saddam Hussein was...

    Book Reviews Jerry Lembcke,The Spitting Image: Myth, Memory, and the Legacy of Vietnam As every Vietnam-era activist knows, no antiwar demonstrator ever spat on a returning veteran. Yet the myth has become a prevalent theme in American culture, so much so that today there are Vietnam veterans who in good faith actually believe they were spat upon. How did this egregiously false narrative become part of American life? Lembcke approaches the question from mulitple directions: Exhaustive analysis of primary sources demonstrates conclusively that there were no contemporary reports of antiwar demonstrators mistreating veterans or in-service GIs. While "there were [...]...

    Post mortems in the liberal press on the role that Vietnam veterans played in presidential candidate John Kerry's defeat mask the key role of the liberal press, which tried to suppress the vets' story and is distorting it now. I was there at the creation of a veterans group and all along, and know better. The American people deserve to know better too. In 1971 I organized Vietnam Veterans for a Just Peace. John O'Neill enlisted to counter the smears of American servicemen in Vietnam. No one else spoke up for us, so we had to. The mainstream press was...

    The election is finally over. For those of us who have had to suffer through the last 18 months of debates, primaries, polls, pundits, and attack ads, it is a blessed relief. Now, perhaps, politicians will actually start to do their jobs instead of yak-yak-yakking about how terrible (fill in the blank) is and how they'd do a much better job. Thankfully, President Bush won re-election. I say thankfully because 1) I strongly supported his candidacy and 2) I did not want a traitor in the White House. Again. America has four more years of strong, compassionate leadership to look...

    There is a large group of "walking dead" in our midst . . . and I cannot get them off my mind and heart. We ignored them once, and I pray we won't do it again. If this past presidential election did nothing more than bring to the fore a story that we've not heard . . . we cannot in good conscience ignore it. One, lone soldier, told his story several years ago, and we listened with "bated breath." But recently when the other side of the story was told, we slightly turned our heads and called it politics....

    Diary Bombshell: Kerry Met with Terrorists In a bombshell development that could have turned President Bush's victory into a landslide had it come out before the election, John Kerry wrote in his Vietnam war diary that he met "terrorists" in Paris - a revelation that "flabbergasted" his running mate John Edwards. All during the campaign, Kerry had adamantly refused to release his diary, claiming that he'd given exclusive rights to use the document to his biographer, Douglas Brinkely. But when Brinkley told reporters that wasn't true, Kerry still declined to make the diary public.

    What is it about democrats? They make careers out of dividing our nation into adversarial groups, claim to be the omnipotent solver of each group’s problems, and then, when they have created this huge divide among our people, they absurdly call for “healing”. It sounds like “divide and conquer” all over to me. These people really are an amazing lot. They create problems and then task the other party’s leaders with the responsibility of fixing them. It is like a drunk driving accident where a criminally irresponsible driver causes an ugly situation others suffer from, pay for, and have to...

    Of all the outrageous aspects of this year's presidential campaign, nothing exceeds the Old Media's overt mission to defeat President Bush. They've always been biased, but this year, they barely tried to hide it. Because of their bias, a large number of people remain in the dark about who John Kerry really is, which is alarming. I dare say that if they had not sheltered Kerry's past and his official record, if they hadn't conspired with Democrats to bring down President Bush, Kerry would be lucky to receive 40 percent of the popular vote. Why do I say that? Simply...

Some apparent fellow travellers may actually be “concealed party members": members of the CP who conceal their membership. Which of these classifications is applicable to the Kerrys is a question this series leaves unresolved. This series does not argue for any direct...

    News management may have reached an embarrassing low in the Los Angeles Times for March 23 where an article by staff writer John M. Glionna purports to offer selections from the FBI file on soon-to-be Democratic presidential nominee John F. Kerry, who was under surveillance by the G-Men as a member of the executive board of the pro-Viet Cong Vietnam Veterans Against the War. Presenting items from 50 documents carefully selected from what it reported were 14 boxes of related government papers 12 feet high, the Times confirmed from the FBI and other witnesses that Kerry had resigned from the...
