    Where Kerry Slept: John Kerry didn't throw his own medals over the wall in that 1971 antiwar protest and he didn't sleep on the Mall with his Viet Vet buddies either. He snuck off and slept in a Georgetown townhouse. ... You can't accuse Robert Sam Anson of burying the lede! ... Assignment for ABC producer Chris Vlasto: As I recall, whether Kerry actually slept on the Mall has been a controversial issue over the years. Why do I think that if you go through the clips you'll find Kerry denying that he didn't sleep on the Mall? Just a guess. Anson, as an eyewitness sympathetic...

    FBI files stolen from the home of Vietnam war historian Gerald Nicosia detail at least one secret 1970 meeting in Paris between future Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry and representatives of the communist government of North Vietnam during the height of the Vietnam War. In an interview last week with California's Marin County Independent Journal, Nicosia said the FBI files contained information on Kerry's May 1970 trip to Paris, where he spoke to Hanoi negotiators who were beginning peace talks with the Nixon administration. Kerry revealed his secret meeting with then-enemy negotiators during a little noticed question and answer session...

    Good Morning America - ABC News
    Let's see if I can kick this off. During the promo at the beginning of the show, where he was standing by live in West Virginia, and throughout the interview itself, Kerry tried hard to keep this huge "what me worry?" smile plastered on his face. He coupled it with numerous condescending head shakes that seemed to imply "these poor benighted fools who so miserably misunderstand the greatness that is John Kerry."
  • Kerry, Pressed, Says Medals/Ribbons Were the Same Thing (Good Morning America Interview)

    ( - Did John F. Kerry throw away his Vietnam War medals or didn't he? In a newly surfaced 1971 interview with a Washington, D.C., television station, the young Kerry said he threw away "six, seven, eight, nine" medals. He said nothing about ribbons -- mentioning only "medals" in that 1971 interview. But on Monday morning, Kerry vehemently denied throwing away his medals -- contradicting what he said in the 1971 interview. He explained the contradiction by saying that back then, medals and ribbons were the same thing. "There was no distinction," he said on Monday. Medal, ribbons, even dogtags...

ABC's GOOD MORNING AMERICA is set to rock the political world Monday morning with an airing of Kerry's 1971 boast, sources tell the DRUDGE REPORT. Developing...

    An Open Letter to Senator John Kerry on Iraq by S. Brian Willson October 10, 2002 FROM: S. Brian Willson ( TO: John Kerry ( Dear John, It has been a long time since we have had contact. As you might remember, our very first meeting was at VVAW's Dewey Canyon III, "A Limited Incursion Into the Country of Congress," April 19-23, 1971, in Washington, D.C. I'm sure you remember asking the Senate that week in an impassioned speech, "How do you ask a man to die for a mistake?" You also stressed the importance of being "totally nonviolent." Our...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | March 29th, 2004 | John Fund
    <p>John Kerry mentions his service in Vietnam so frequently that it has become a running joke on the campaign press plane. He seldom if ever mentions his postwar activities as a national coordinator and principal spokesman for Vietnam Veterans Against the War, a group he says he quit in 1971 because he was concerned about its radical agenda. One reason may be that a credibility gap has started to widen over his antiwar history, and he clearly doesn't want to discuss it at length. His campaign is issuing misleading and evasive statements on his antiwar service in a way that would do the Pentagon spinners of the Johnson and Nixon administrations proud.</p>

    From B. G Burkett's great book, "Stolen Valor," pp. 130-138:The TribunalsOn January 31, 1971, an organization called Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) convened what came to be known as the Winter Soldier Investigation. Some of the major organizers included Jane Fonda, Dick Gregory, Phil Ochs, Graham Nash, David Crosby, and actor Donald Sutherland. For four days in a hotel in Detroit, "veteran" after veteran told grisly tales of horror of using prisoners for target practice and throwing them out of helicopters, of cutting off the ears of dead VC, of burning vil­lages and gang-raping women.

    KANSAS CITY - (KRT) - Confronted with 32-year-old FBI records, Sen. John Kerry's campaign all but conceded he attended a 1971 Kansas City meeting where a fellow anti-war veteran called for political assassinations. Those active in Vietnam Veterans Against the War at the time stress that the suggestion for such a violent approach was angrily rejected. They say their memories do not include Kerry taking part in the radical discussion. A statement Thursday by Kerry's camp said the Massachusetts Democrat did not recall the meeting, although FBI surveillance material and the group's archives clearly show that Kerry resigned from his...

    John Kerry became nationally known because of his appearance before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 22, 1971, and the other media appearances he made around that time. This media attention was the result of Kerry's participation in the Vietnam Veterans Against The War's (VVAW) operation called "Dewey Canyon III" which was an anti-war demonstration conducted on the mall in Washington DC. It would seem, however, that this pivotal event which catapulted John Kerry to fame was financed by Democrat Party fundraisers. From a quote from the book "Home to War" by Gerald Nicosia, pp. 104-105: Even worse, the week before Dewey...
