Vets Rally Against Kerry

While the rest of us were savoring the spectacle of Dan Rather dissolving like the wicked witch of the west, Vietnam Vets for Truth rallied against John Kerry on Sunday under their banner, “Kerry lied while good men died.” There were thousands of demonstrators, but only the Washington Times seems to have noticed.

Former POW Jim Warner told me this morning that one of John Kerry’s former Vietnam Vets Against the War pals showed up to heckle, and was eventually removed by the Capitol Police. Warner spoke Sunday, but left out one critical thing. He, like the rest of the group, still believe John Kerry slandered them all by his infamous 1971 Senate atrocities testimony. Warner told me he wished he’d talked more on Sunday about the atrocities that did occur in the Vietnam war. “There were atrocities,” he said. “That’s why we were there. As always, the communists committed atrocities such as the 5,000 citizens of Hue they killed during the Tet offensive.”

While the smoke is clearing from the Sunday demonstration, and the Vets are planning their next steps. Organizer Larry Bailey told me this morning that we’re going to hear from them long, hard and continuously between now and the election. Stay tuned.
