Post #240 on this thread is correct. I did the research on John Kerry's involvement with the VVAW in the period Nov 1971 through 1972. I provided that research to both wintersoldier.com and to Tom Lipscomb -- the site www.wintersoldier.com could archive the original research; Tom Lipscomb as a reporter could utilize the research, but would not archive it. I have published on political protest and terrorism. I hold a Ph.D. in Political Science from Harvard University, 1972. I have a long history of independent research and publication. The VVAW and John Kerry are a field of interest to me. In 1972, I published an extensive study of the political protest around the 1972 Democratic and Republican National Conventions in Miami Beach, protests in which the VVAW was actively involved (the work was published at the Lemberg Center for the Study of Violence, Brandeis University, 1974). Jerome R. Corsi, jrlc on Free Republic. I'll be happy to clarify any other questions you might have.

Thank you for your post. I wish you had posted earlier. Of course IT could have told me as well. Instead he denied the connection.
Since you are in the business of research you can well imagine my concern when I saw what seemed to be someone else's research being bruited here before theirs was published. I had talked to Lipscomb and he said that he and nobody he knew had given the material to FRN or Swett.
Perhaps you should have told him before after midnight last night that that was what you were doing. I would think that would have been a professional courtesy. But that is between you and Lipscomb. If you go back to my first posts on this you will see that I was only trying to protect somebody's work. If I or Lipscomb had been told what was going on behind the scenes, I wouldn't have posted what I did. Instead it was denied.
Thanks again for your (albeit tardy) explanation.
