John Kerry's Viet Nam flashback

When John Kerry gave his testimony before the United States, he stated that he had committed war crimes in Viet Nam, including participating in “free fire zones.”

Like a lot of people critical of Kerry, I chalked that up to a load of codswallop, like most of his stories of his tour of duty in Viet Nam. But recent events have me reconsidering that judgment.

The “free fire zones” were a creation of the Viet Nam war. In those designated areas, any and all people were to be considered hostile and legitimate targets. That’s probably where the phrase “kill ’em all and let God sort ’em out” came from — or, if not, it certainly embodied that concept.

Recently, Kerry has put up a petition on his web site calling for President Bush to fire Karl Rove over his alleged role in the Valerie Plame mess. Now, there is currently a grand jury investigating that matter, and it is my understanding that Rove has received a letter from the grand jury clearly stating that he is NOT a target of their investigation. Nonetheless, Kerry is adopting the “fire ’em all and let God sort ’em out” attitude towards Rove.

Poor Senator Kerry. I never realized his three months in Viet Nam would have such tragic consequences. Can’t someone help the poor man?

Do Republicans stand with bigots?
Adios
