The absurdity of John Kerry
Senator Kerry states, "I remember spending Christmas Eve of 1968 five miles across the Cambodian border being shot at by our South Vietnamese allies who were drunk and celebrating Christmas. The absurdity of almost being killed by our own allies in a country in which President Nixon claimed there were no American troops was very real."
I understand that John Kerry repeated his claim of being in Cambodia for Christmas, 1968 several times. in 1986 he stood on the floor of the Senate and said he was in Cambodia.
It was reported on FNC tonight that the Kerry campaign is saying that Kerry was near but not in Cambodia. Near but not in. Or was it in but not of? Whatever! The Congressional Record from 1968 has Kerry's account in which he stated that he had been in Cambodia illegally. On Christmas. He said it more than once and now he can't un-say it. He's busted!
All the band of brothers bought and paid for cannot put Humpty Kerry back together again.
