Thirty five years ago John Kerry slandered an entire generation of men who fought in Vietnam branding them as a “war criminals.” Today, much of the same thing is being said about our young men and women in Iraq.
Now, a lawsuit filed in Philadelphia’s Court of Common Pleas will test the very foundation of Kerry’s anti-war persona for the first time. It isn’t dubious medals or Kerry’s disputed service record in Vietnam that is being called into question. This time Kerry may finally be forced to answer for the events that launched his public career, one that made him an anti-war hero for many American liberals and a turncoat for millions of Vietnam veterans.
Read the whole thing. I, and a lot of other veterans, would really like to see the veterans that testified to being “war criminals” do so under oath. But I’m pretty sure that Kerry has the money and connections to keep them from doing so. If you read Col. Day’s entire piece you will see that they have found ways not to testify before. In fact, one guy even left the country.
It’s about time this blood libel was either proven or put to rest.
