The following is an e-mail I received from Wayne Simmons. Wayne, for those who don’t know him, was a recruited out of the Navy in 1973 by the CIA and turned into a covert operator. Wayne ate, slept and drank with narco-terrorists and smugglers in the Caribbean, Europe, the Far East and Central Asia while gathering intel for the CIA and other “customers.” He’s one of those smart, tough guys who have been there and done that. His comments on the election are more than worthy of everyone’s attention:
I have worked for six Presidents of the United States, numerous DCI’s and DDO’s, participated in countless ops and intel ops and have had more 9mm’s pressed against my forehead than I can remember yet, I am more afraid and concerned today than when I sat at a table with narco terrorist’s plotting to smuggle thousands of tons of heroin, cocaine, pot and weapons into the U.S. and slaughter anyone who tried to stop them. I remember the Church Commission. I remember being told how to run ops by members of congress who could not control crime in the states from which they had been elected. A Kerry aide recently said that if John Kerry is elected President of the United States, he will ask newly appointed and eminently qualified DCI Porter Goss to resign. We are at a time in the history of the U.S. when we face an enemy unlike any we have ever faced, a cult of resentment employing an asymmetric attack bent on the destruction of America and it’s allies. An enemy determined to slaughter every man woman and child in the West and around the world. Forget for a moment that Kerry is the most liberal member of Congress, a Senator who will cut billions from our intel budgets and has worked his entire political career to decimate our military.
Imagine that Kerry could nominate men like Larry Johnson, Ray McGovern or Pat Eddington, members of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, a group of former CIA and intelligence analysts who have attacked President Bush and the CIA at every opportunity. They have been on the wrong side of every issue surrounding the war on terror and our war in Iraq and Afghanistan. These are men who believe they are smarter than President Bush, VP Chaney, Condolezza Rice, Sec. Rumsfeld, former DCI George Tenet and General Tommy Franks. These men and their followers fail to recognize the freedom given to tens of millions in Afghanistan and Iraq or the continued safety given to 260 million Americans every day since 9/11.
The repercussions against the U.S. if John Kerry should be elected President would be so devastating and far reaching that America would be more vulnerable than at any time in her history. We are in the midst of a full scale war on terror. This is not a political statement but a statement of fact backed up by reviewing the military and political records of John Kerry. Our enemy is praying for Kerry to be elected. I hope and pray that most Americans recognize these facts and do not allow America to fall prey to the forces of evil waiting to devour her should John Kerry be elected. Remember, CS Lewis wrote, “There is no neutral ground in the universe. Every square inch, every split second is claimed by God, and counterclaimed by Satan.”
