    Midnight in South Vietnam, and the river is black. Past the rice paddies and shacks, small fires are burning by the shoreline as Lt. John H. Davis' 50-foot aluminum swift boat — PCF 19 — makes its routine patrol through the reeds. In a split second, rocket fire shatters the silence, and through a plume of oily smoke, the boat sinks to the river's bottom. "My whole crew lost their lives that night. I was the only one who survived," Lt. Davis says.

    Monterey Herald ^ | 10/09/04 | AP - Los Angeles
    LOS ANGELES - The Sinclair Broadcast Group is ordering its TV stations across the country to air a documentary on the eve of the presidential election that attacks Sen. John Kerry's anti-Vietnam War activism, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. The one-hour program, "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," features former prisoners of war accusing Kerry, a decorated veteran who took up the anti-war cause upon returning from Vietnam, of prolonging the war and worsening their plight. The newspaper said the program is to be followed by a panel discussion to which Kerry will be invited, which could satisfy fairness...

    Ok, I've never started a post on my own before, so I hope I did everything right! I just have a question. I'm LIVID after reading the news on AOL this morning. The first thing I clicked was an article about how the Republicans are going to try "suppressing black votes." (Underneath that was a link to a story about Edwards addressing the Black Caucus.) In the sidebar was an advertisement flashing "Dethrone Bush!" and asking for $50 contributions. I got a little nauseated. So to be fair, I clicked a link that said Bush was leading in most polls,...

    Open Letter to the Democratic Party To whom it may concern: Be advised that the majority of Veterans and Independent Voters are fed up with your assaults on the Viet Nam Veterans that are exposing your “war hero” When Kerry used his Viet Nam service as his central theme, he seems to have conveniently forgotten the insults he poured on us during the 1971 Senate Hearings. It also seems that he has done everything to keep his “New Soldier” out of the hands of the general public, to include the latest PDF version on a website that is now blocked....

    WASHINGTON - Two former Vietnam prisoners of war who appear in ads attacking Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (news - web sites) were appointed by the Bush administration to a panel advising the Department of Veterans Affairs (news - web sites). The former POWs in the ad, Kenneth Cordier and Paul Galanti, serve on the VA's 12-member Former POW Advisory Committee. VA Secretary Anthony Principi appointed Cordier in 2002 and Galanti in 2003. Cordier said the VA panel has nothing to do with the Bush campaign or the anti-Kerry group. "It's totally apolitical, and we meet twice a year to...

    Anti-Kerry 'Swift Boat' Group Vows To Keep Up Ad Campaign AFP: 8/29/2004 WASHINGTON, Aug 29 (AFP) - The controversial group of veterans, whose television advertisements attacking Democratic White House hopeful John Kerry sparked a national debate, vowed Sunday to keep up their campaign until the November 2 election. Retired admiral Roy Hoffman, who founded the so-called "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth," told Time magazine that since their first, relatively small ad ran in three states earlier this month, the group had raised 2.5 million dollars from 37,183 donors. "We knew that we were going to stir the pot, but I...

    LAS CRUCES, N.M. - President Bush (news - web sites) wants to work with Republican Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record) to pursue court action against political ads by "shadowy" outside groups, the White House said Thursday amid growing pressure on the president to denounce attacks on John Kerry (news - web sites)'s war record. "The president said if the court action doesn't work, that he would be willing to pursue legislative action with Sen. McCain on that," Bush spokesman Scott McClellan told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to New Mexico. McCain, R-Ariz., has called on Bush...

    WASHINGTON - Three campaign finance watchdog groups filed a complaint Tuesday accusing a group of Vietnam veterans of violating the campaign finance law by airing an ad that challenges Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry (news - web sites)'s military record. Democracy 21, the Center for Responsive Politics and the Campaign Legal Center argue that the ad by Swift Boat Veterans for Truth violates a federal ban on the use of unlimited donations, often referred to as "soft money," to influence federal elections. In the ad, the group accuses Kerry, a decorated Vietnam veteran, of lying about his war record and...

    WASHINGTON - A conservative group that complained about television ads for Michael Moore's anti-Bush documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" now wants an exemption from campaign finance laws so it can advertise a book on John Kerry (news - web sites). Citizens United contends the Federal Election Commission (news - web sites) should consider it part of the news media, and allow it to run election-time ads for a book called "The Many Faces of John Kerry: Why This Massachusetts Liberal is Wrong for America." In a request released this week, the group argued it should be able to run ads for the...

    Posted on Sat, Jul. 31, 2004 Anti-Kerry rant gets N.J. man arrested, say authorities NICHOLSON - While thousands gathered in Scranton on Friday in support of Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry, one man in opposition of the senator voiced his protest at a Wyoming County convenience store. He was a little too fervent, though, said state police of Eric Michael Greisch. The Montvale, N.J., resident was arraigned before District Justice Carl Smith in Tunkhannock on two counts of disorderly conduct. It was unclear if he was released on bail. Police said Greisch, 53, walked into the Pump-N-Pantry on U.S. Route...
