Swiftvet O'Neill: If Kerry Comes Back, So Will We
If John Kerry tries to reclaim his party's presidential nomination in 2008, as he suggested he'll do to a group of his campaign aides last week, he'll have to do battle with the Swift Vets and POWs for Truth all over again.
This That was the pledge on Sunday from John O'Neill, leader of the group of Vietnam veterans that many credit with stopping the Kerry campaign's political momentum dead in its tracks.
"If he comes back and runs for president again, we'll come down out of the mountain - all of us," O'Neill told WABC Radio's Monica Crowley.
O'Neill said he hoped Kerry wouldn't try to make a comeback.
"If he doesn't, of course, we'd all like to go home. We're not political folks," he insisted.
"Hopefully, we'll be able get together again in 35 more years and not have to worry in the meantime about John Kerry," O'Neill told Crowley.
'Unfit for Command' Author Considers Challenging Kerry in Senate Race
John Kerry's nightmarish challenge by his Swift Boat veterans and their allies may not be over.
NewsMax recently chatted with Jerry Corsi, the co-author with Swiftee John O'Neill of "Unfit for Command" – the runaway New York Times best seller that torpedoed Kerry's presidential campaign.
Attending a conference in the suburbs of Washington recently, Corsi let it be known that he is actively considering a run against Sen. Kerry when his term is up.
Corsi is not a Massachusetts native, but says he has already scouted for property to declare his residence there.
He appeared excited about the challenge. Federal law allows him to declare his candidacy at any time and open up a full fusillade against the Senate's most liberal member.
Corsi thinks his criticisms of Kerry will be well received in the state that elected Republican Mitt Romney. Even Bush fared better in Massachusetts in 2004 against its home state candidate than he did against Gore in 2000.
Corsi also notes that his Italian-Irish ancestry will give him an edge in a state given to ethnic voting. Kerry is neither Irish nor Italian, Corsi notes.
As word has circulated about a possible candidacy, Corsi says he has been flooded with e-mails of support.
Corsi said he has read news reports that Kerry is considering a lawsuit against him, O'Neill and the Swift Boat Vets.
Presumably the suit would be for defamation. The New York Post's Page Six quoted a top aide to Kerry saying the senator would need to file such a suit if he has any prayer of making a presidential bid in 2008. Incredibly, Kerry is said to be considering such a run.
Corsi said he and O'Neill have discussed the possibility of the lawsuit, and both said they might offer to pay Kerry for the FedEx charges to serve them with any court papers.
"Quote me: Bring it on!" Corsi said with a chuckle.
Swift Boat Vets and POWs for Truth
To: Senator John Kerry (D-MA)
Upon your return from Vietnam, you betrayed your fellow veterans by accusing them of engaging in horrendous war crimes. Through your post-war activities, and during Senate testimony viewed by the entire nation, you created and nurtured the myth that American soldiers in Vietnam were involved in such crimes on a daily basis, and that such activity was sanctioned by our commanding officers. Specifically, you stated that we: "had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, [and] razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan."
You continue today to make claims of atrocities for which you have no documentation, no support, and no evidence.
You met with North Vietnamese officials in Paris and worked with them in the furtherance of their political and military objectives against the United States.
As you now seek to become Commander in Chief of our armed
forces, we believe it is incumbent upon you to better explain to the
American public your conduct in this matter. Specifically, we ask you
Senator Kerry, the vast majority of the men who served with you, and the entire chain of command, have refuted your representations of your conduct in Vietnam. To date, you have repeatedly refused to respond to these statements, electing instead to have professional political operatives flood the media with efforts to discredit these former comrades. We want to hear from you.
We the undersigned consider your response on these five points to be critical to this nation's decision to entrust our military forces to you. If you betrayed us once, we need to be assured that you will not do it again.
It is time for you to set the record straight.

LETTER FOR THE PROSECUTION OF JOHN F. KERRY
Setting the record straight
No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now. Rarely have so many people been so wrong about so much. Never have the consequences of their misunderstanding been so tragic not only to America but also to the soldiers who fought that war.
Isolated atrocities committed by American soldiers produced torrents of outrage from antiwar critics like Jane Fonda, John Kerry and the news media. If there were atrocities commited on a "day to day basis" as Kerry would have America believe, our news media would have been right there foaming at the mouth with pen in hand, it was the big lie, the Fonda-Kerry lie. The news media had no "day to day basis" atrocities they could prove, so they ate up and reported every word Kerry-Fonda said, with no thought of what it was doing to Americas best.
Meanwhile Communist atrocities were so common that they received hardly any attention at all. The United States sought to minimize and prevent attacks on civilians while North Vietnam made attacks on civilians a centerpiece of its strategy. Communists who did so received commendations. From 1957 to 1973, the National Liberation Front assassinated 36,725 South Vietnamese and abducted another 58,499. The death squads focused on leaders at the village level and on anyone who improved the lives of the peasants such as medical personnel, social workers, and schoolteachers.
June 1st, 1971- In support of the Nixon Administration's conduct of the war, a group named the Vietnam Veterans for a Just Peace declares that it represents the majority of the U.S. veterans that had served in Southeast Asia, and calls the protests and congressional testimony of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War "irresponsible."
Atrocities - every war has atrocities. War is brutal and not fair. Innocent people get killed. But the young American men who fought that war were not brutal, mindless, murderers, they were your sons, your fathers, your relatives, your friends and neighbors they were 18, 19, 20 and 21 mostly. They had come from good homes they were educated, and loved their country and they have had to live with Kerry's lies and the medias thirst for gore, to sell commercials, ads and movies for over 30 years now!
America you have been wrong to long, it's time to set the story
straight, and we intend on doing just that, starting with Hanoi
In retrospect one must in reality question why Kerry filmed his supposed escapades in Vietnam, a tactic that obviously smacks of exploitation and calculation. I spent one year in Vietnam as a combat veteran and I never encountered any soldier carrying an 8-mm camera. If John really wanted to do something important why didn't he document with his camera all the atrocities he said that he witnessed and were committed by the hoards of Ghengis Khan he so blatantly accused in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee 1971? The murdering, rapists .... Your fathers, sons, friends, and relatives, our young fighting men who fought with so much bravery because they loved America! Where was his bravery then? He was so against the war what better chance to prove his accusations but on film? No, his real reasons for carrying that camera have become very obvious to most veterans and to many Americans. John Kerry is into only one thing and that's John Kerrys political aspirations.
Back in September 2002, Kerry told then-New York Times columnist (now executive editor) Bill Keller "I have no intention of using" his Vietnam home movies, which Kerry shot with an 8-mm camera, for campaign purposes. But contrary to that promise, those films were used in Kerry’s TV ads and were heavily featured during the Democratic convention.
John F. Kerry Must Resign
15 November 2004
Update on the "Petition for Investigation and Indictment" of John F. Kerry for treason. We have received thousands of inquiries about the "Petition for Investigation and Indictment" of John Kerry. According to legal experts, John Kerry's meetings with enemy agents from Communist North Vietnam on multiple occasions between 1970 and 1972 are not covered under Jimmy Carter's amnesty as outlined in EO 4483. For that reason, on Monday, 22 October, we delivered to U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft a "Petition for Investigation and Indictment" calling on the Department of Justice to determine conclusively whether Kerry's actions, in direct violation of UCMJ (Article 104 part 904), U.S. Code (18 USC Sec. 2381 and 18 USC Sec. 953) and other applicable laws and acts of Congress, constitute treason, and disqualify him from any future campaign for any national office. (To read the text of the petitioners' request, link to -- http://patriotpetitions.us/kerry/letter.asp) However, John Ashcroft’s resignation from his post as AG on 6 November will delay action on this request until his replacement is confirmed. We plan to pursue this issue, as its endorsers have requested, to its resolution, and we fully expect an answer from AG Ashcroft. In reality, given the political sensitivity of this request, we don't expect any action before January 05. However, we are contemplating forming an alliance with other groups like the Swiftees and POWs, and moving forward with this legal challenge. We will keep you posted. In the meantime, please encourage additional signers to link to http://patriotpetitions.us/kerry and sign the petition. We will update the number of signers each time we make official inquiry to determine the status Hall Citizen Organization In God we trust. ><>
John F. Kerry Must Resign
John Kerry has a long and well-documented history of providing "aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of war -- particularly in the case of North Vietnam. By his own account, Kerry violated the UCMJ, the Geneva Conventions and the U.S. Code while serving as a Navy officer, and he further stands in violation of Article three, Section three of the U.S. Constitution which defines treason as "giving aid and comfort" to the enemy in time of warfare. Thus, in accordance with the Constitution's Fourteenth Amendment, Section 3, which states, "No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice-President ... having previously taken an oath ... to support the Constitution of the United States, [who has] engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof," We, the People of the United States, demand that Kerry resign his seat in the Senate.
THE OTHER JOHN KERRY
What John Kerry said in front of this
committee cemented the image of the Vietnam Veteran
praised Ho Chi Minh!
Phony Vietnam veterans around Winter Soldier
Guenter Lewy's 1978 book America in Vietnam (pages 316-317) and B.G. Burkett and Glenna Whitley's Stolen Valor (Verity Press, Inc., Dallas, Texas)(pages 113, 131-137) contain similar information about flaws in testimony and participants.
Several months before John Kerry testified in front of a Senate Foreign Relations Committe, he attended a seminar (the so-called "Winter Soldier Investigation) bankrolled by Jane Fonda in Detroit in February 1971 during which 150 self-proclaimed Vietnam veterans testified at a Howard Johnson's about atrocities allegedly committed by our own forces.
When Kerry spoke before the Senate after his Vietnam experience, he not only trashed the military as an institution, but the soldiers who put their lives on the line. Many who have served in the military, and their families as well, perceive Kerry's public disparagement of our troops as unforgivable acts. Furthermore, in his attempts to disparage the Armed Forces engaged in the conflict in Vietnam, he provided false testimony before the Senate, i.e. he is a liar. He and his organization of protesters presented unsubstantiated and false allegations of atrocities. For example:
Elton Mazione, claiming Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) credentials, Kerry's organization, along with his friends, John Laboon, Eddie Swetz, and Kenneth Van Lesser. They claimed to kill children and remove body parts as part of the notorious Phoenix program. They were neither in Phoenix nor in Vietnam.
Kerry's VVAW leader friend from 1971, Al Hubbard, lied about being an officer, Vietnam veteran, and sustaining war injuries. Michael Harbert, another VVAW crony of Kerry, lied about his Vietnam service.
Frank Dux: He charged many recognizable Vietnam vets with using techniques bordering on war crimes. Dux was a fraud and non-Vietnam veteran.
Yoshia K. Chee claimed we in Vietnam routinely resorted to the most hideous forms of torture, threw people out of helicopters, and decapitated prisoners. He was a phony.
Mike Beamon, an alleged SEAL and Phoenix assassin, was never in the military.
The senator's own VVAW and similar groups relied upon people like: K. Barton Osborn, a Vietnam veteran who testified of atrocities to Congress. He told of prisoners being thrown out of helicopters, a woman starved to death, a prisoner being killed by a 6-inch dowel pushed through his ear. Osborn was not involved in Phoenix, refused to name names, and provided no documentation.
Lieutenants Francis Reitemeyer and Michael J. Cohn. Both sought conscientious objector status because of Phoenix. Reitemeyer testified to being assigned to Phoenix as an adviser and maintained a kill quota of 50 bodies a month. They became famous as My Lai hit the news. Neither served in Vietnam, in Phoenix, or had any firsthand information. Reitemeyer later denied receiving any assassination training.
Kerry's comments as an anti-war activist were: a) substantially hogwash, b) notably biased against members of the military, c) very damaging for anyone aspiring to be president and Commander-in-Chief, and, d) unworthy of any American, as the clear intent was to comprehensively besmirch the Armed Forces and its members.
Kerry has met one of a few definitions, but none of them is "Patriot." 1. He may have been credulous and believed his allegations -- making him a "fool" if they proved false; 2. making him an "opportunist" using it to advance his career if they were true (he never turned over any of the documentation he promised in the hearings, most likely due to problems with the credentials of those making the allegations); 3. a "criminal" if he knew from personal experience that he was guilty, as he stated, of that which he accused others.

Jane Fonda appeared on CNN to explain that she and Kerry might not have even "shaken hands" at a Valley Forge, PA rally where the two were photographed together. But flyers distributed by VVAW for the Operation RAW (Rapid American Withdrawal) list Kerry and Fonda as speakers as well as sponsors.
Jane Fonda donated millions to Kerry's failed election campaign....many of us Americans were born at night...but it wasn't last night.
The photo below is from the New York Times from 1971 where Kerry is involving himself in the POW/MIA issue much to the chagrin of the Families who even at that time could see his political ambitions. But thats not all that was on Kerry's mind. On April 22, 1971, as he testified before Senator Fulbright's Committee on Foreign Relations, John Kerry mentioned that in Paris he had meetings with "both sides" of the Paris Peace Talks.
Later in John Kerry's political career he would
become involved with
Did John Kerry Know There Were POW's
Left Behind? Did He
In retrospect, it is clear that John Kerry had but one goal as Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs. His goal was to remove the issue of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action, as a roadblock to trade and normalization of relations with Vietnam. The question is.... why?
All we need to do is look at two events which occurred shortly after the committee presented its finding, in January 1993.Francis Zwenig, staff director for the Committee, who was often seen during hearings whispering in Kerry's ear, became Vice President of the U.S. - Vietnam Trade Council. Ms Zwenig, who helped shaped the conclusion of the committee and its final report was now benefitting financially from the committee's efforts to close the POW/MIA issue.
In June of 1993, as reported in a Boston Herald article by Michael E. Knell, "Colliers International brokered a $905 million dollar deal to develop a deep sea port in Vietnam.." To skirt the trade embargo still in effect against Vietnam, Colliers International acted through its partner firm Colliers Jardine based in Singapore. At the time the deal was brokered, C. Stewart Forbes was the Chief Executive Officer of Colliers International.
All through 1993 and into early 1994, John Kerry pushed for the lifting of the trade embargo against Vietnam, citing of Vietnamese cooperation on the POW/MIA issue. As evidenced in the articles of Sydney Schanberg and scripted event involving Senator Kerry and Col. Pham Duc Dia, Vietnamese cooperation was clearly a myth. Yet, Kerry persisted in his campaign to lift the trade embargo. Finally, his efforts were rewarded in February 1994, when President Clinton lifted the embargo.
Did Kerry have an another agenda, beyond the stated goals of the committee? Before you answer that question, there is one other piece of information you need to know.
Stewart Forbes CEO of Colliers International and John Forbes Kerry are
cousins. See #7 this is not a Republican plot and it sure as
hell is no coincidence.It's a matter of record.
Sydney H. Schanberg wrote for The New York Times
Magazine (January 20, 1980), He wrote a book for the most part a reprint
of the story that which subsequently became the basis for the
Oscar-winning film, "The Killing Fields".. In
structure it seems a simple enough story of one man's heroic survival
and another's personal redemption : insensitive Western journalist
(Sydney Schanberg) badly miscalculates the danger that his Man Friday (Dith
Pran) is in as the Khmer Rouge take over Cambodia; Sydney escapes
deteriorating situation but Dith Pran can not leave; Sydney conducts a
ceaseless rescue effort, while Dith Pran survives unimaginable horrors,
before finally fleeing the country; they are reunited and all is
forgiven. Mr. Schanberg makes this portion of the story more
compelling by being relatively honest about his shabby treatment of Dith
Pran and by revealing just how guilty he felt about what he had done. It
thus becomes a story of recompense, of how he initially did wrong by
Dith Pran but then did his best to set things right, and eventually
everything worked out okay.
For all those great citizens who were going to leave the country if President Bush was re-elected we have help for you.
