John F*#kin Kerry Does It Again

During his now infamous testimony in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after he came home from Vietnam in the spring of 1971, John Kerry made all sorts of wild statements about atrocities he never actually witnessed or knew for sure happened. Here is an excerpt from what he said. (Click here for the full statement.)

"They had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, tape 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 country side 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 country."

Throughout the entire Vietnam War there was only one case of these sorts of atrocities that were proven and that was the atrocities that occurred at My Lai in 1968.

Now John Kerry is doing it again. Accusing our troops of terrorizing on Face The Nation. Here is the story:

On CBS' 'Face The Nation,' John Kerry was talking about the troops in Iraq. He was asked by Bob Schieffer about the progress being made there. He once again reached into his past, and pulled out the "atrocities" card:

" ... 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, breaking sort of the customs of the - of - the historical customs, religious customs."

Well then, I guess the more some things change the more they stay the same. Perhaps the French looking Senator from Massachusetts, who by the way, served in Vietnam, would like to offer up a little proof...and after that, explain why he's bashing the United States Military on national television, other than the fact that bashing our military is just something that seems to come naturally to him.

Maybe next Kerry will run down to the White House fence and throw back his medals...or ribbons...or someone else’s medals or maybe an Iraqi Veterans medals...you know just for old times sake.
