Skip to comments.The Assassination Plot, was Kerry involved?
Posted on 09/22/2004 10:09:12 AM PDT by ZAXX
At a November 1971 meeting in Kansas City of the leaders of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, one Scott Camil proposed "Operation Phoenix" a plan to assassinate the leading pro-war members of the U.S. Senate. The group adjourned to a secret location to debate the assassination plan, and ultimately voted it down. John Kerry originally claimed that he resigned from VVAW's executive committee two days before that meeting, and has denied attending. But contemporaneous FBI surveillance records place Kerry in Kansas City, and a number of witnesses including the head of Kerry's campaign in Missouri, Randy Barnes have said that Kerry attended the Kansas City meeting and argued against the assassination plan. (Thomas Lipscomb broke this story in the New York Sun this spring.) Why has Kerry been unable to point to any evidence that he resigned from VVAW prior to the Kansas City meeting? If Kerry was there, why didn't he tell the authorities that some members were plotting political assassinations?
Wow. Someone in the almost mainstream press is actually looking at this?
Kerry should be in JAIL for many reasons.
This is amazing information. I believe this is further proof that you cannot trust Mr. Kerry. Americans will respond to this ad and this information and drop Kerry for good.
At the same time GWB is fulfilling his obligation to the National Guard, Kerry is sitting in a room full of radicals voting on whether to assasinate U.S. Senators!!! The MSM is flagrantly biased here.
in the present atmosphere, can we have a link to the sourced news article?
Any hope that the TV media will pick up on this?
And even if we take Kerry at his word that he opposed
the plan, what were Kerry's legal obligations with
respect to reporting this?
Keep in mind he was also still a USNR officer at this time.
It is abundantly clear that Senator Kerry was plotting to be President from a very young age and that he would never do anything that would derail that hope - like becoming implicated in an assassination.
His crime lies in not reporting his murder-minded buddies to the authorities, not any kind of active participation in such a plot.
He may have thought there was a percentage in talking to the Viet Cong - especially given the political climate in the Democratic party - but he always knew that an assassination is not a credential in national politics.
His only defence is that, while he now admits that he was there, he voted against the assassination idea. This raises the question if he voted for it before he voted against it, or vice versa.
John Kerry - sign form 180. Authorize release of ALL Government documents including the FBI files!
It's simply amazing the double standard applied to Bush and Kerry, Fox and SeeBS. Imagine Fox network's people doing what SeeBS people have admitted to doing ( I suspect the rot and corruption go much deeper)with forged documents against Kerry. The outrage pouring from editorials, Dem politicians and journalism professors would be ear spitting. Imagine Bush attending a meeting as a young man and listening to plots for political assasination or admitting to war crimes like Kerry has done. Again, the MSM would be literally howling for Bush's head. The double standard is staggering. If Kerry received the same scutiny from the MSM as Bush does, he'd get about 20% of the vote.
Since he was a USNR officer at the time, the place for Kerry is Leavenworth, not the White House (nor the Senate for that matter).
Mainstream Media? Wow!
For the same reason he didn't notify anyone he was meeting with the Commies in Paris...twice, or that he didn't report any of the atrocities he claims he saw and participated in, in Vietnam.
Partly true. I don't think Kerry liked "individualizing" his assassinations. He was content with character-assassinations of EVERY VIETNAM SERVICEMAN living and dead.
