It is now official. Last week, President Obama nominated John Kerry to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, saying Kerry’s ”entire life has prepared him for this role.” He further contended that Kerry’s service as a Vietnam veteran taught him the “responsibility to use American power wisely, especially our military power.” That assessment may come as a shock to the thousands of Vietnam veterans whose reputations Kerry trashed in order to advance his own radical political agenda.
Remarkably, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, unable to attend the nominating ceremony due to her continuing effort to dodge testimony regarding the Benghazi debacle, viewed that trashing as an asset. “John Kerry has been tested–in war, in government, and in diplomacy. Time and again, he has proven his mettle,” said a written statement released by Clinton. “I remember watching young Lieutenant Kerry’s testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee many years ago and thinking that I had just seen a man of uncommon courage and conscience.”
This is a particularly callous and stinging statement from Clinton. Many Americans are aware of John Kerry’s infamous abuse of his fellow soldiers during the “Winter Soldier Investigations,” when he appeared before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in 1971 as a representative of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) and made the following statement:
They told the stories at times they 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, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.
Kerry contended that these atrocities were committed ”on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command.”
What did you expect from Obama? The more an incompetent that these people are, the bigger their payraises!
Kerry fits right in with this radical group. Why are we nominating Obama, the know unqualifier, fraud and all around no good muslim guy, next month?
They are not going to stop Kerry so forget about it and move on to stopping Obama's spending.
That POS is unfit to breath valuable air and use resources. If he really wanted to serve this country, he could die. At least he'd be useful as fertilizer (maybe).
he wouldn't he is the worst kind of shit good for nothing
I was in Vietnam when kerry was he was on a RAT boat thay only ran the mounth of the rivers never up the rivers were the shooting was. I was shoot at almost every day I was on a PBR the KHMAR ROUGE were the one,s that done what karry said was going on I can tell you now that I did not mind shooting KHMAR ROUGE I seen with my own eyes what they would do to villages because the people had helped the THE US MILITARY. I hope he is a good a officer as he was in Vietnam it will show just how good a low life as obama can pick remember BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGEATHER.
You're a patriot Larry and not anything like John Kerry. Merry Christmas
i cannot even imagine how our Military Men and Women feel about this. What a slap in the face. The illegal in the WH hates our Military and he hates us.
SNAKE ! NUFF SAID !
Not one time was he able to provide eye-witness accounts of any of these events. These were stories told to him and he used them to justify his treasonous actions against his brother soldiers. He did however, gained some experience; being a coward, a traitor, and lying will grant you access to the top of the Democratic Party.
I was told that his own crew didnt want him on the riverboat because he was a pure coward and always pulled away from any fights...
Not surprised about Hillary Clinton's statement. They are all the same in Washington these days. They are all a pack of corrupt liars who protect each other while they cheat and lie to the American people. When the people will decide enough is enough? who knows. Meantime, we have to go through the charades, games, dog and pony shows until everyone is good and fed up. By that time, however, it might just be too late.
