Apparently concerned about influencing the U.S. presidential campaign, Vietnamese communist officials ordered a war museum in Ho Chi Minh City to remove a photograph of John Kerry from a display that was highlighted in "Unfit for Command," the best-seller challenging the senator's version of his military service and his antiwar activities.

"Unfit for Command" described the photo as "part of an exhibit honoring heroes who had helped the Vietnamese communists win the war against the United States."

See, now if THAT was the front page headline of Monday's Washington Post, Kerry would have some 'splaining to do.
One of those things that makes you go, "HMMMMM".
"Unfit for Command" co-author Jerome Corsi believes the removal and recasting of the photo is indication Vietnamese officials don't want to embarrass Kerry.
"The communists don't want to do anything that would be detrimental to him being elected," Corsi told WND. "If he wants foreign leaders to support him, he can certainly count on Vietnam's communist regime."
John says, "See? I do have some pull with foreign leaders!"
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my infrequent miscellaneous ping list.
A little late for that, isn't it?
They mailed it to Kerry and asked him to autograph it.
Gee, I wonder who asked them to do that?
That's a little like putting the plug back into the bottom of the boat while it's sitting on the lake bottom.
Disgusting and treasonous......
Best line in the thread.
Why should the Vietnamese embarrass this candidate, when, if he gets elected, the'll OWN their very own US President?
Saturday, however, Paris returned to the museum to find the picture had been put back on the wall this time in a display clearly designed to emphasize Kerry's diplomatic efforts as a senator rather than his more controversial antiwar activities.
In their minds, this is a win-win action for the Viet Nam Communists.
If Kerry wins, they can claim to have helped him by removing his picture.
If Bush wins, they can claim they removed Kerry's picture as a sign of respect to the President.
"That's a little like putting the plug back into the bottom of the boat while it's sitting on the lake bottom."
LOL - Thats a pretty fair statement.
What the HELL are Kerry voters thinking?
