And there is no reason -- That young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night.
Kids and children.
You know women.
How Senator John Kerry who is rumored to be a candidate for Defense Secretary trash talking our troops not I was back in 2005.
But that wasn't the first time that he's done that -- -- what he said back in 1971 while testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Vietnam War.
They relived the absolute horror.
Of what this country.
In a sense made them do.
They told the stories of times that they had personally raped.
Cut off fears 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 the fashion reminiscent of -- just come.
-- cattle and dogs for fun.
Poisoned food stocks and generally.
Ravaged -- sign of south Vietnam.
In addition to the normal ravaged war.
And joining me now with reaction is the co-founder of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth John O'Neill -- -- to -- -- thanks bill us.
Thank you thank you Sean.
If -- am glad you know shot.
Sean in the -- you know they carry quote you put out is typical of Cary.
He was quoting people many of whom were later -- never have even been -- Vietnam many -- we're never even in the military.
But you know -- we lost 58000.
-- people in Vietnam might I knew a fair number of them are a lot of them for my class at the Naval Academy.
They were the best people we ever had to describe them as the army of Genghis -- for political advancement is typical of -- whole career.
And it didn't stop and as you know off.
-- wrote a book.
Call the new soldier that I beg everybody to read it's right on the Internet.
It starts with a -- -- Marines on Iwo jima raising the flag and describes exactly what -- helps the military will be.
It's a frightening up fictional Sean you know remembered 2006.
Went -- you know.
When he said that are -- if you if you didn't study hard you'd end up stuck in Iraq right when our troops were fighting.
He was a hawk on Iraq at the beginning and then he was a surrender -- at the end as he's been over and over again it would be a much better guy.
And hauling up a white flag and the secretary of defense anywhere well it's amazing because he even in 2005.
After he'd been through all of this you know was accusing our our troops on Bob shapers -- going in the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night terrorizing children and and kids and women.
Let me ask this if in fact.
Barack Obama wants to nominate him for secretary of defense or state -- the swift boat vets for truth come back.
We'll do the very best we can Sean I was contacted today I spoke today.
With three different people that won the congressional medal of honor we'll do the very best we can we -- kids you know.
-- -- we've got hundreds of thousands of kids have been engaged in -- better in the armed forces.
Can you mention them.
Counting on John Kerry to protect their back it would leave already got a problem I know for the left that would have been jargon they give.
You and your fellow -- by the -- war heroes people that serve their country honorably.
That challenge lies that he told about other Vietnam vets.
They use it as a pejorative.
This -- that you guys -- was very effective.
Says they served their country with the courage and distinction.
There's the man who served with John Kerry in Vietnam there his entire chain of command.
Most of the officers -- -- -- Even the governor from his own -- And that the men who spent years in north Vietnamese prison camps and tortured for refusing to -- what John Kerry in Houston.
-- -- They were also definitely many very highly -- take -- Today.
And community leaders.
And of course fathers and grandfathers.
With nothing to gain for themselves except the satisfaction that comes with the telling the -- They have come forward to talk about the John Kerry if they know.
Because to them honesty and character still matter especially in -- time home.
I was pretty powerful.
So you would do this again I take.
Let me tell history about that had -- we were we -- we would make he had.
In Houston there was a fellow had been a Prisoner of War of the north Vietnamese air force academy graduate -- a Prisoner of War for eight years.
North Vietnamese he was dying of pancreatic cancer shot.
We didn't call -- to be in the ad and he called me on the telephone.
And he said John why didn't she -- -- to be in the sand and I said.
While we knew you know we we knew you were really really sick.
You know -- -- of its own expense up there was in that ad he died about a month later Sean that's -- how strongly all of us felt what he did was unbelievable.
But he did our own troops in Iraq during the Iraq War to make him the secretary of defense -- the secretary of state would be a disaster for our national security it really would be a total forfeiture of the loyalty that we all of the troops in the field.
John we'll continue to follow the story and I know the left is having a collective meltdown.
At this moment.
Too bad they don't like to hear John Kerry in his own words it's a stark reminder for the American people -- -- -- -- us.
Thank you my friends.
