The Washington Post Is On The Kerry/Cambodia Story

What kind of coverage is the Christmas in Cambodia story getting in one of the most influential papers in the country?

August 10, 2004 - Washington Post Search for Cambodia

Update: Via Allah and LGF (who credits Powerline and Hugh Hewitt) there is a mention of Kerry and Cambodia in this June 2003 campaign article from The Washington Post

And who is he, really?

A close associate hints: There's a secret compartment in Kerry's briefcase. He carries the black attache everywhere.

Asked about it on several occasions, Kerry brushed it aside. Finally, trapped in an interview, he exhaled and clicked open his case.

"Who told you?" he demanded as he reached inside. "My friends don't know about this."

The hat was a little mildewy. The green camouflage was fading, the seams fraying.

"My good luck hat," Kerry said, happy to see it. "Given to me by a CIA guy as we went in for a special mission in Cambodia."

Kerry put on the hat, pulling the brim over his forehead. His blue button-down shirt and tie clashed with the camouflage. He pointed his finger and raised his thumb, creating an imaginary gun. He looked silly, yet suddenly his campaign message was clear: Citizen-soldier. Linking patriotism to public service. It wasn't complex after all; it was Kerry.

He smiled and aimed his finger: "Pow."

Did you see the MSNBC special on John Kerry by the vets who not only served with him but many, many others. John O"Neil wrote a book titled "John Kerry: UNFIT TO SERVE" quite enlightening to those who didn't already know the truth about John Kerry. As JON said, "this is a man you do not want running this country." He also spoke about all the law firms from Kerry and Edwards trying to stop them and shut them down. They have a site called "swiftboats.com" and the other site I found was "vietnamveteransagainstjohnkerry.com" Check it out. God help us all if that man ever reaches the white house.

Even as recently as this evening, watching various Kerry apologists and protectors on guesting on varioius FOX broadcasts, the entire theme of the effort to denigrate the Swiftees and protect Kerry is that, as per Kerry protectors, "their statements are false" (about the Swiftees' stories).

I then hear the Kerry protectors go on to say, "I thank you for your service to our country, I just disagree with you" to visiting Swiftees who share what they know and experienced about Kerry in Vietnam.

Which is saying, without being direct about it -- the key to Kerry's very presence here as with his now protectors trying to dampen anyone/everyone's credibility regarding the Swiftees -- what this statement actually communicates by the Kerry protectors is that they refuse to accept the truth about the first-hand witnesses that prove Kerry's deceits, so they're "just disagree(ing)."

Other protectors then present themselves as various heavy hands from various legal professions and it strikes me (!!) as more attempt to intimidate and therefore silence ("I'm an officer in the L.A. Police!" and, "I'm a former Federal Prosecutor!" and similar).

Which doesn't matter. In all due respect, there are a dozen or so people -- the Swiftees -- who witnessed a person named John Kerry doing things, not doing things, and have shared their stories about what they know, what they witnessed. Because Kerry protectors can't accept what these guys are saying -- which proves Kerry has been lying and otherwise acting very dishonorably and for a long time -- all they CAN say is that they "don't agree with" the Swiftees' witness, as if agreeing with or not agreeing with their witness is relevant, or even rational (if you weren't present during the incidents that the Swiftees were and about which they attest, "agreeing" or not with what they say is a nonsensical thing to say).

The media couldn't be any more clear that they are both intimidated about the truth and protecting Kerry. Again and again I write, money buys a lot of access and it buys a lot of silence, and it certainly buys a lot of "new" history, or any history anyone with a lot of purchasing power wants.

The United States HAS no "free press." In my experirence, what "press" has managed to survive to present day, is part and parcel of a concerted effort to supplant one form of government in the U.S. -- our democracy -- with another, and thus, we have John Kerry and John Edwards striving to "take" the White House. I couldn't be more ashamed of "liberal" Americans tonight.

Wake Up America!
This body of evidence presented by the testimony by the SwiftBoat Veterans should tell everyone that these Honarable Servicemen are acting under truthful memories and relaying accurate incidences so consistenly that, unfortunately indicates Senator Kerry is lying, for political gain. "Unfit For Anything" is a better title for Kerry's life's legacy and story! Wake Up America!
