John Kerry: Obama’s “Perfect Choice” For Secretary of State

When Barack Obama nominated John Kerry to be America’s next Secretary of State Friday afternoon, he called Kerry the “perfect choice” to replace Hillary Clinton. Stating that “few individuals … grasp our foreign policies as firmly as John Kerry,” Obama said the Senator will not “need a lot of on-the-job training.” He then praised Mr. Kerry’s combat service in the Vietnam War and his subsequent tenure of service in the Senate, where Kerry has been intimately involved in “every major foreign policy debate for the past 30 years.”

Notably, President Obama made no mention of what occurred after Kerry’s military service and before his political career. Perhaps this is because what Kerry did during that time would be difficult even for an adroit wordsmith like Obama to summarize with just a pithy phrase or two of adulation.

The historical record informs us that not only has John Kerry been on the wrong side of every major foreign policy issue for most of his adult life, including Iraq, Nicaragua and most recently in Syria, but he has routinely engaged in deception to conceal his folly. What’s worse, Kerry has a clear record of giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies, all the while never missing an opportunity to viciously trash our brave forces fighting against them.

With Obama’s nomination of Kerry to head the State Department, therefore, a look back at Kerry’s “service” to this country becomes more pertinent than ever:

After being discharged from the Navy in early 1970, Kerry joined Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) and became a major figure in the so-called “peace” movement, whose hallmarks were a deep wellspring of hatred for the United States coupled with sympathy for America’s Communist enemy. In May 1970, Kerry, without government authorization, met personally with North Vietnamese and Viet Cong delegations in Paris to discuss a list of “peace” proposals enumerated by Nguyen Thi Madame Binh, the top Viet Cong delegate to the Paris Peace talks. In the aftermath of that illegal meeting, Kerry strongly advised the U.S. Senate to accept Binh’s proposals.

At that time, Kerry himself acknowledged that his visit to Paris was “on the borderline” of legality. Actually, it extended far beyond that “borderline.” A federal law known as the Uniform Code of Military Justice prescribed severe punishment (including, in some cases, the death penalty) for any person who “without proper authority, knowingly harbors or protects or gives intelligence to or communicates or corresponds with or holds any intercourse with the enemy, either directly or indirectly.”

During the ensuing months, Kerry, with increasing stridency, continued to exhort the U.S. to accept the Viet Cong peace proposals. His radical VVAW comrades went so far as to sign a “People’s Peace Treaty,” whose nine points were all extracted from a list of Viet Cong conditions for ending the war. Kerry fully supported this treaty.

On April 22, 1971, Kerry famously testified to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations that many U.S. servicemen in Vietnam 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 …” “We learned the meaning of free fire zones,” added Kerry. “Shooting anything that moves, and we watched while America placed a cheapness on the lives of Orientals.” Moreover, Kerry emphasized that America’s “war crimes” in Southeast Asia were “not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”

Army reports that were unearthed decades later resoundingly discredited the claims of Kerry and his fellow VVAW members, proving those claims to be essentially a pack of lies. When Kerry was running for U.S. President in 2004, the publication U.S. Veteran Dispatch noted that Kerry’s 1971 Senate testimony had “occurred while some of his fellow Vietnam veterans were known by the world to be enduring terrible suffering as prisoners of war in North Vietnamese prisons.” Similarly, retired General George S. Patton III charged that Kerry’s actions had given “aid and comfort to the enemy.” And the organization Vietnam Veterans Against John Kerry stated:

“As a national leader of VVAW, Kerry campaigned against the effort of the United States to contain the spread of Communism. He used the blood of servicemen still in the field for his own political advancement by claiming that their blood was being shed unnecessarily or in vain…. Under Kerry’s leadership, VVAW members mocked the uniform of United States soldiers by wearing tattered fatigues marked with pro-communist graffiti. They dishonored America by marching in demonstrations under the flag of the Viet Cong enemy.”

Yet today, this same John Kerry has been nominated to serve as Secretary of State for the same nation he trashed so relentlessly in the ’70s. Only in America.

After graduating law school, working in a district attorney’s office, and serving a brief stint as Massachusetts’ lieutenant governor, Kerry was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1984. Just a few months later—on April 18, 1985—Kerry and fellow Democratic Senator Tom Harkin traveled to Nicaragua to meet with President Daniel Ortega, whose Communist Sandinista government had strong ties to the Soviet Union and Cuba. Through Kerry and Harkin, President Ortega offered a cease-fire agreement on the condition that the Reagan Administration stop aiding the rebel Contras who were then at war with the Sandinistas. Reagan rejected the offer as a transparent “propaganda initiative” designed to influence an upcoming House vote on a $14 million Contra-aid package, but Kerry said: “I am willing … to take the risk in the effort to put to test the good faith of the Sandinistas.” The House of Representatives ultimately voted against the Contra aid. The following day, Ortega flew to Moscow to accept a $200 million loan from the Soviets. Presumably this was one of the many “major foreign policy debates” in which, by President Obama’s reckoning, Kerry had so impressively distinguished himself.

Unchastened by the evidence of his own poor judgment, Kerry in 1986 supported a “fast for life” initiative by four U.S. military veterans protesting President Reagan’s “illegal and extraordinarily vicious wars against the poor of Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Guatemala.” Also in the 1980s, Senator Kerry hired Gareth Porter, a former fellow of the consistently pro-Soviet Institute for Policy Studies, as a legislative aide. And in 2002, Kerry sent his warm greetings to a major gathering of the Democratic Socialists of America‘s Boston chapter.

Kerry’s next opportunity to distinguish himself as a man of exceedingly poor character was furnished by the conflict in Iraq. Initially, Kerry voted to authorize the use of military force against Saddam Hussein, a position the Senator based on his firm conviction—which he publicly articulated on numerous occasions—that Saddam was aggressively seeking to develop weapons of mass destruction. During the weeks and months leading up to the March 2003 U.S. invasion, for example, Kerry made the following statements:

  • “It would be naive to the point of great danger not to believe that, left to his own devices, Saddam Hussein will misjudge, provoke and stumble into a future, more dangerous confrontation with the civilized world. He has as much as promised it.”
  • “If Saddam Hussein is unwilling to bend to the international community’s already existing order, then he will have invited enforcement …”
  • “Without question we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal and murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime. And we all know the litany of his offenses.”
  • “People have forgotten that for seven and a half years, we found weapons of mass destruction [in Iraq]. We were destroying weapons of mass destruction.”

But as the political winds shifted, Kerry and his fellow congressional Democrats began to portray, with ever-growing frequency, the Iraq War as a foreign-policy debacle that had been launched hastily and without justifiable cause.

In 2004, for instance, Kerry charged that President Bush had not only “misled the American people” about the threat posed by Saddam, but also had “arbitrarily” decided that the “time for diplomacy is over” and “rushed our nation to war.” During a presidential debate that October, Kerry said: “Saddam Hussein didn’t attack us. Osama bin Laden attacked us. Al Qaeda attacked us.”

Not content to smear only the Commander-in-Chief, Senator Kerry also accused U.S. servicemen of “terrorizing” the Iraqi people. On December 4, 2005, he told Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation: “And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women …”

For John Kerry, it was 1971 all over again.

In recent years, as columnist Arnold Ahlert has so aptly written, Kerry “has been the federal government’s highest-ranking apologist for Syrian President Bashar Assad.” Indeed it was Kerry who repeatedly tried to undermine the Bush administration’s efforts to isolate the dictator. Under Obama, Kerry has pursued with renewed vigor his impulse to engage Assad. During a January 2009 visit to Damascus, for instance, the Senator listened attentively to Assad’s admonition that Washington must “move away from a policy based on dictating decisions” to Syria. Kerry, in turn, said: “Unlike the Bush administration that believed you could simply tell people what to do and walk away and wait for them to do it, we believe you have to engage in a discussion.” In April 2010, Kerry again met with Assad and called Syria “an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region.”

Forty-thousand dead bodies later, one tries vainly to reconcile John Kerry’s track record with President Obama’s glowing description of him as the “perfect choice” for Secretary of State. One can only ponder with trepidation what dark days lay ahead for America with this hate-America veteran taking the reins at the State Department.

    This article clearly summarizes why we should be upset, and these exact same issues are the reason he was selected by 0'Bama.

    • JanSuzanne

      I saw John Kerry back in the late 60's when he came to the huge anti-Vietnam rally in Central Park in NYC and spoke to the thousands of anti-Vietnam demonstrators. I was close up to him, documenting the event, and could see where he was really coming from. He was preparing himself at that time to become President. He is a liar, a manipulator, an opportunist and a traitor! I rallied against his presidential bid almost as much as I did against President Obama. Now we have to rally against him becoming Secretary of State. Hillary out, Kerry in…same agenda, and both traitors to our country.

  • southwood

    Kerry is not wrong about Assad if he considers him the lesser of two evils. The Syrian rebels are a combination of sunni Muslim Al Qaeeda connected jihadis who are massacring and terrorizing Christians, Druze and Alawites. Under Assad Christians lived in more freedom than in virtually any other Muslim nation. The wonderfully perceptive Hillary (Lybya, Egypt, Benghazi, apologies over the movie) certainly supported the Syrian rebels. Wrong. Again.Seriously wrong. Again.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Kerry is not wrong about Assad if he considers him the lesser of two evils. "

      Kerry was sucking up to Assad since before the civil war. It was some kind of "reset" along the lines of the "Russian reset." I'd be shocked if he took Assad's side after 0'Bama was ordered by his Sunni king to support the Sunni rebels against Assad. It doesn't seem likely, so perhaps your just confused by the reference to less than up to date info. It's also possible that I missed something myself though. I just sort of doubt it in this case.

      • southwood

        "It doesn't seem likely, so perhaps your just confused by the reference to less than up to date info."

        I assure you I am not "confused". Not in the slightest. Kerry may inwardly still retain his opinion on Assad while, for pragmatic career reasons, conforming to Obama's pro rebel stance. Kerry has shown himself a flip flopper before (just like the loser Romney was) so why not do it again when more is at stake ?

        • objectivefactsmatter

          "I assure you I am not "confused". Not in the slightest. Kerry may inwardly still retain his opinion on Assad while, for pragmatic career reasons, conforming to Obama's pro rebel stance."

          You still might be confused about what the article was referring to.

          "Kerry has shown himself a flip flopper before (just like the loser Romney was) so why not do it again when more is at stake ?"

          You said originally:

          "Kerry is not wrong about Assad if he considers him the lesser of two evils."

          You're attributing a lot more cunning and insight to a man that kisses butt with America's enemies. Why does he do that? Probably because of narcissistic political objectives. It hardly matters then how aware he is that Assad in charge is better for us. He won't take that position unless it's politically beneficial to do so. If he's a pure "flip flopper," then it doesn't even matter what he thinks "internally" because it's always subject to correction according to the weather. That means whatever the party of traitors seems to want, he tries to deliver.

          He's an enemy as much as 0'Bama, but with less power.

    • Luke

      Kerry is not wrong about Assad if he considers him the lesser of two evils.

      That is a BIG IF.

      I think Kerry sticks his finger up into the wind to see which way it is blowing. He has no principles except self preservations & aggrandizement.

      As such I think there is no afterlife for him. I hope he lives to 100 or more. And when he is on his deathbed dying of natural causes, he will be afraid of his wasted life.

    As such, a radical and Islamist infused Prez has no other option but to appoint those of like-mind. Kerry and Hagel suit to a tee, despite their vet status, more of an anomaly than most patriotic vets –

      "this article leaves out a lot of facts and reasons for which many decisions were made…"

      Like what?

      "…the only thing john kerry is guilty of is being truthful and not shooting first and aiming later…"

      That sounds kind of fuzzy. Got any specific objective facts or citations to justify your purely subjective statement? Do you love him, really? Fine. You can have him.

      "…like most of the neo-cons who think this drivl is right on the money.."

      OK Sparky.

      "…you are in a bubble all of you and you need to open you eyes and realize you are being lied too on a daily basis…"

      We talk about leftist lies and delusions all the time. It's more like hourly, or minute to minute lies.

      "…and the conservative movement is in so much hot water with the american people that it is on the way of the whigs.."

      Wow, conservatives are going to have to seriously consider the case you laid out.

      "i wouldnt waste my time on smearing john kerry it wont get you very far…"

      There's really no need in this case. We're just having some light moments laughing about him. Everyone knows what a liberal leftist loser he is, it's just that other liberal leftist losers like the current Whitehouse occupier value this traitor, because he's a blatant traitor that got away with it for so long. This makes leftists consider him a sort of living superhero.

      "…but by all means proceed to bury the party even more the GOP will be demolished to where they are only a state by state party and mostly in the south and not even a factor in the general conversation.. wake up or forever lose to the al mighty liberal chubby chasers.. fools"

      Well said. Bravo.

      I have a question for you: What is your position on dealing with the threat of Islamic imperialism? Kerry doesn't acknowledge any threat. Nobody in the Democratic Party, with maybe 2 exceptions, will even admit this is something to discuss without being falsely maligned as a "racist."

      How stupid is that? Don't answer that. For you, that's merely rhetorical. It's obvious you're serving evil whether you know it or not, and you're too far gone to reach rationally unless someone can spend some serious time with you straightening out your delusions.

    I am wondering, out loud, if Kerry will undergo jet lag, as Hilary is suffering from. She may have done a terrific job,, in her 4 years as Secretary of State, but she must have logged close to 1 billion air miles, a clear record for her job. It is no small wonder that she has a concussion and dehydration, and with that as a cause, the State Department lost it's direction, because the Boss was never home to oversee everyday operations.

    His Vietnam record is disgusting, and his actions after he returned from Vietnam he became an enemy to America's military and the Constitution.

    My father and the 58,000 other soldiers whose names are on the VNW Memorial are spinning in their graves.


    JOHN KERRY: "I'M AN INTERNATIONALIST." (Harvard Crimson) That's INTERNATIONAL COMMUNISM! Kerry has aided Communists for decades. As a Freshman Senator, he and Tom Harkin held hearings with two Nicaraguans who said they knew of drug dealing with funds going to the Contras. One major problem. They were lying and giving false testimony as it was found out that they were promised Green Cards/papers for citizenship in return for their false swore testimony. Hearings ended. No reprimand of Kerry or Harkin.

    Hillary too aided the 80's Communist FMLN rebels of El Salvador with thousands of dollars in a program devised by the CPUSA AND KGB. When the FMLN won the Presidency three years ago, Hillary was the highest U.S. official at the inauguration.

    Barack Obama, while at Columbia wrote an article/google "Obama Sundial 1983" which proves he was also a part of the CPUSA AND KGB fronts. He did admit to seeking out Marxist professors and this article proves he sought out the most radical anti-US students. He fit right in since he was born of Communists, mentored by a Communist, found Communist in college, found Chicago's Communists and terrorists, and now has appointed his "CIRCLE OF COMMUNISTS" to the DOJ, State Department, CIA, FBI, Homeland Security, and the White House. So Kerry fits right in.

        IF the claims of these pieces of trash being “America’s enemies” are incorrect, then they are sedition, the same way attacks agains GWB were sedition. If they are valid, then they are a call to action. There, explained so simply even you might be able to understand it.

      • Mary Sue

        You don't know what sedition is, then.

        • erielhonan

          "incitement of insurrection against lawful authority" – that's sedition. Accusing a American president elected twice to office with a majority of votes cast as well as an overwhelming majority of electoral college votes an "enemy of America", and urging people to tend to their ordnance in the very next sentence is seditious.

          If you are going to trot out comparisons of how the opposition characterized Bush, I'm afraid you are still acting like overblown alarmist nutters. The worst characterization of Bush was that he was an inept chickenhawk who surrounded himself with corporate warmongers, and that he blew up the economy via two very expensive wars without an adequate revenue stream, and by tanking America's credibility with our allies and trading partners.

          I notice the message board rules prohibit ad hominem attacks. All I've seen about Obama are non-substantive and unsubstantiated insults. The guy governs to the right of Reagan. Learn 2 history, dittoheads.

            Keep your powder dry is a cautionary statement expressing fear that it will get worse. Even if it's literal, it's not disloyal at all if we're right about 0'Bama, and the facts can easily prove we are.

    The modern day troopers use to fight
    He voted to cancel intelligence funding
    Yet criticizes everything in sight

    Like he's got a better plan
    One where we all get to pass a global test
    Before we're allowed to defend ourselves
    And only if France says we've done our best

    He's a lying sack who will absolutely sell out
    Every sacrifice that's already been made
    He's got no guts to hang in anywhere
    He'll just curtsy and diplomatically fade

      Sure hope the Swift Boaters are still around. They stopped him before and I'm sure they can do it again.

    Every time there is an executive order signed…
    Every time our Prez nominates a whacked liberal for a position…
    Every time he speaks nice lies in those that have ticking ears…
    Every time it happens, I can hear the flushing of America going down the toilet.
    It doesn’t even get a chance to fill up, it just won’t stop with the libs in charge.
    As far as Kerry, he should stick to helping his wife with the ketchup industry…I can only wish.
    They will eventually take my memories away of what America was, they will find a way to tax that as well.

    Just have to love the follow through on policy for the Obama Administration, Place another one that is all about Kowtowing and bowing to the enemies of the Republic and the Rights of the Citizen under the Constitution of the United States.
    What gets me is how they seem to think that their history should make them special when it was an affront to the Nation, at at time of war, adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort does make them treasonous so why are they now being rewarded for such actions? Since when did we become the nation that empowered and help expand the Muslim Brotherhood in the World?
    When did that become acceptable practice for the Nation? Does the oath of office mean anything at all to the members of the Congress or worse yet our Military? Why have they allowed this atrocity to continue as they have, as they are ? Why are We?

    • Arlie

      Why are We?

      1. The Left owns the Media Propaganda machine and uses Alinsky and Cloward & Piven tactics
      2. Americans love football and movies more than G-d and Sovereignty
      3. 50% of Americans are Lazy; someone else will do it; that's what we pay Congress to do
      4. Most Americans do not know that the Congress and all institutions we pay to protect our G-d given rights have been infiltrated by Marxists and Islamists and the Media is complicit and corrupt. If they do know they are in denial or "it's none of my business" thinking.
      5. Americans that know the truth have waken up too late and now it will take a miracle to undo without a civil war. Why? 0 has successfully pitted us against ourselves. We are now hyphens instead of Americans.

  • WilliamJamesWard

    Kerry and enemy of America could only peak by matching up with the quintessential American
    enemy and manipulator, deceiver and fraud with no moral base or truth, Barak Hussein Obama.
    Those who support the current criminal administration get what they bought into, desolution of
    anything good and a continuous host of missery down the road with the destruction of personal
    freedom. Evil attracts evil……………………William

    Oh, so Kerry's part of the Traitors Against War? Figures.

    Which is worse, Hillary or Ketchup Man, that's a tough call. I am willing to wager that in a dead heat for worse Secretary Of State candidate, Kerry beats her by a nose.

    It's also hard to say whether Kerry's ideology is so idealistic that he has fooled even himself into believing that the Commie Side is as pure as the wind-driven snow, or whether he is actually malicious in his intent. But for the purposes of being a Secretary of State (let alone a Senator), that's mostly irrelevant, as problematic deeds are problematic no matter the motive.

    Bring Back Swift Boat!

    Why do all of you seditious liars hate America so much?

    • Mary Sue

      That's a good question. Why do Hillary, Obama, and Kerry hate America so much?

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Why do all of you seditious liars hate America so much?"

      Please cite the lies with your evidence.

    • objectivefactsmatter

      "Why do all of you seditious liars hate America so much?"

      We hate America's enemies, and you are simply a gullible hyperactive dupe. You can't even back up any of your claims.

      How is it in the interests of anyone in the USA who is not Muslim to shrink American military and cultural hegemony in favor of totalitarian enemies who want to destroy us? You've either got to show that my description is wrong, or that 0'Bama did not and is not continuing to do that. He's done this with more than just appeasement of dangerous foreign sovereigns, he's actually created additional sovereigns run by the enemy that was once suppressed by our allies! What in the heck do you call that? You must love Iran and Jimmy Carter, because unlike most people, even those who supported Carter as it played out, lessons have been learned by the events in Iran. 0'Bama learned just how far he could go in empowering America's enemies as POTUS. All that is bad about Egypt today is owned by 0'Bama. That's not the only example, just the one hardest for you to hide from, and yet I'm sure you do.

      You lose the argument completely. Your argument is based 100% on emotion in contradiction to the facts. That makes you a dupe. Are your feelings hurt that we attack someone you admire? The root of the problem is your arrogant adherence to lies that you need to believe for all the wrong reasons.

      Nice to have you around, you silly dupe. We need examples to show just how empty the arguments are for defending these traitors.

    With a nation of 330 million, this is the best we can do? John McCain supports Kerry for SoS, any further questions?

  • Chris

    Kerry is such a phony. He made a big scene of throwing his Viet nam medals over the wall at the White House during the 70's protests recorded on camera. Years later a reporter was interviewing him in his office and saw a case on the wall with his war medals. and asked him how he got his medals back since he threw them over the wall during the protests. He replied oh, I didn't throw my real medals away. Those were duplicates I bought them at a military surplus store for the protest. Yeah, what a hero! Just like the Iraqi war resolution. "He voted for it before he voted against it." That says it all.

    At least Thurston and Lovey know which fork to use and won't embarrass us at diplomatic functions. But the obvious thing we should all fear is that once again we are under threat of having that arrogant Ketchup Queen as First Lady. But it's probably a diversion while they groom another non-Old-White-Man to be the next democrat in the top seat. After all, the democrats are eventually going to purge all the old white men out of democrat offices since they now have a presidential mandate to engage in race-based politics.

    Thurston will put on a good show and crawl on his knees for the nasties of the world while sending caviar to his chums on government flights. Obama will dangle the carrot till the last possible moment and then yank it like a football (kinda like Clinton did to Gore and Kerry, democrats eat their dead). So where's the GOP in all of this? They're angling for that all-important Hispanic vote and fantasizing about getting more black votes while taking the white votes entirely for granted. After all, pandering in any way to white people is racist. Right?

    • Mary Sue

      With any luck Mrs. Ketchup will drink herself to death.

        Or Kerry will become the next Hoover and she'll get richer on Ketchup Soup recipes.

    Congratulations on this article which exposes the true Senator Kerry. I was aware of his approaches to Nguyen Thi Madame Binh, and his subsequent approach to and influence on the US Administration, as well as his fictional accounts of his service in Vietnam. Surprisingly I have not heard any of this material relayed from Fox News, or other analytical sources. It would be of great service if you at FPM could personally intervene to present this material to other such interested parties.
    I shudder to think of Kerry as the U.S.Secretary of State.

  • MCheck

    Senator Kerry will make a great Secretary of State. The comments and accusations raised here are all either twisted to relay a negative view of the Senator, missing so much information that what has been written can not be believed or just lies. I recognize that for some here it is hard to understand a complex human being who have served his country with valour, becoming disalusioned with a war that was not winnable and was wrong, and a man who tried to find solutions to stop the killing on both sides. Senator Kerry is a humanitarian that knows that all human beings are equal in the eyes of God and deserve the same fair treatment. The words he spoke at the Senate Foreign Relations committee were the words of other vetrans, they told these stories and ask him to tell these stories on their behalf. And, as far as the Contra’s, that was an illegal weapons and drug running orgainization that our President at the time, Reagan, was willing to do business with, it was because of our involvement and dirty involvement with the Contras that cocaine was further introduced into our Amerian culture. Obviously, Senator Kerry knew what was going on and was trying to stop it. That is the efforts of a patriot.

      I am a 100% (Combat Related) Disabled Veteran of 20 years service in the USN. I got my disability during the 13 months I spent in Vietnam. I am well aware of Sen. Kerry's service in the USN, and I remain to this day ashamed of his connection to my Navy. For your information, if memory serves me correctly, he spent a total of 3 months in Vietnam and was able to dream up 3 different methods of getting himself awarded 3 Purple Hearts – NONE OF WHICH REQUIRED ANY TREATMENT, HOSPITALIZATION OR ABSENCE FROM DUTY. After putting a bandaid on his (self inflicted cut), he started plotting for his next medal. If you are equally unaware of the Purple Heart as you obviously are about Kerry, the reason he wanted to get 3 ASAP was that it was the rule that 3 of them got you a ticket home. If you actually want to KNOW the truth about Kerry, stop burying your head in the sand and read all about him from the hundreds of Swiftboaters who reluctantly served with him in Vietnam – they testified about him and his cowardice many times!

  • OldmanRick

    Kerry, Valarie Jarrett, Axlerod, and Obama bring new life to the adage that birds of a feather flock together.

  • marylou

    My father, a Vietnam Vet, would be so sad and dismayed to see what destruction is being waged on America from within. It is unbelievable to me EVERY DAY since Nov 2008, to see how the Obama liberal "progressive" Communist/Islamic Supremacist forces have been working diligently to destroy America from within…and 50% of the American people are clueless because they are too busy caring about what stupid "celebrities" are doing…too busy watching award show after award show after award show that the "celebrities" put on for themselves. Obama, the megalomaniac, & other Communist politicians & "news" people think they are "celebrities" and want to be continually honored as well. As Maximus told Commodus, "The time for honoring yourself will soon be at an end.". I live to see that day.
