Another Kerry Whopper:
Christmas ‘68 not spent in Cambodia
As reported by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth group, through their
lawyers’ letter sent to the television station managers regarding the
Swifties’ anti-Kerry ad... and now reported on
DRUDGE... John Kerry has been caught in yet another Vietnam
Here is John Kerry’s statement, on record, from the Senate Floor in
“I remember Christmas of 1968 sitting on a gunboat in Cambodia. I
remember what it was like to be shot at by the Vietnamese and Khmer
Rouge and Cambodians, and have the president of the United States
telling the American people that I was not there; the troops were not
in Cambodia. I have that memory which is seared--seared--in me.”
But Kerry’s Navy chain of command say it never happened. And at least
3 of the 5 crew members from Kerry’s swift boat -- Bill Zaldonis,
Steven Hatch, and Steve Gardner -- deny that they or their boat were
ever in Cambodia.
Kerry’s own biography, “Tour of Duty,” doesn’t even mention it. It’s
replaced with a story about a mortar attack that occurred on Christmas
Eve 1968 “near the Cambodian border” in a town called Sa Dec and says
Kerry spent Christmas day 1968 at the base writing journal entries.
So, just what is “seared—seared” in John Kerry? It looks like some
really big whoppers are searing John’s conscience.

"For more than thirty years, most Vietnam veterans kept silent as we
were maligned as misfits, addicts and baby killers. Now that a key
creator of that poisonous image is seeking the presidency, we have
resolved to end our silence,"
said John O’Neill.
EXCERPT from John Kerry's 1971 Senate
"I would like to talk,
representing all those veterans, and say that several
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....
They told the stories at
times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off
heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human
genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up
bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in
fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs
for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the
countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal
ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging
which is done by the applied bombing power of this
Aug. 18, 2003...
John Kerry continues to be seen as weak on national
and too complaint to international sway ...
Aug. 20, 2004... The liberal mainstream media continues to
stonewall coverage of the
Swifties' charges against John Kerry, fueling further growth of the
story through the Internet...
Aug. 27, 2004... The Swifties launch a third television ad
against John Kerry,
gaining momentum as they seek to keep Kerry out of the position of
paid for by the Iowa Presidential Watch
