Quote Of The Day: Band-Aids, POWS, & Veteran’s Families
Every day, every day of the week, John Kerry should get on his knees and thank the Lord that the press so liberal. Here’s a guy whose campaign theme is basically “Vote for me because I won medals in Vietnam” and yet, when Kerry’s takes MONSTER broadsides on the whole Vietnam front, the press is barely covering it. Here’s some of the quotes that have been breaking from some of Kerry’s fellow soldiers in Vietnam in the last couple of days…
Kerry’s First Purple Heart
After first pointing out that Kerry claimed that he was hit by enemy fire, but actually appeared to have accidentally wounded himself by firing a mortar round at some nearby rocks…
“What I saw was a small piece of metal sticking very superficially in the skin of Kerry’s arm. The metal fragment measured about 1 cm. in length and was about 2 or 3 mm in diameter. It certainly did not look like a round from a rifle.
I simply removed the piece of metal by lifting it out of the skin with forceps. I doubt that it penetrated more than 3 or 4 mm. It did not require probing to find it, did not require any anesthesia to remove it, and did not require any sutures to close the wound.
The wound was covered with a bandaid.” — Louis Letson, the doctor who treated the wound Kerry got his first Purple Heart for
John Kerry, Tearing Apart The Families Of Veterans
From an article on the anti-Kerry group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth…
“One veteran, noting the allegations were again made in a book on Kerry’s war experiences, choked back tears as he related how his wife and daughter had read about the alleged war crimes Kerry spoke about in Douglas Brinkley’s “Tour of Duty: John Kerry and the Vietnam War” and asked him if he had committed them.”
John Kerry, Viet Cong, & POWs
“John Kerry’s recent admissions caused me to realize that I was most likely in Vietnam dodging enemy rockets on the very day he met in Paris with Madame Binh, the representative of the Viet Cong to the Paris Peace Conference. John Kerry returned to the U.S. to become a national spokesperson for the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, a radical fringe of the antiwar movement, an organization set upon propagating the myth of war crimes through demonstrably false assertions. Who was the last American POW to die languishing in a North Vietnamese prison forced to listen to the recorded voice of John Kerry disgracing their service by his dishonest testimony before the Senate?” — John O’Neil
Even though Bush isn’t running on his Vietnam record, the press spent WEEKS pouring over every minute detail of his National Guard days. Yet, Kerry, whose whole campaign is centered around Vietnam, isn’t getting 1/10th the scrutiny that Bush got from the press on the same issues. Like I said, Kerry should hit his knees and give thanks every day that the press is protecting him like this…
