(Just in... my snake eater buddies over at the SOG group need some feedback on Kerry's "Cambodia Adventures" back in 1969. Robert at SOG1RLNOE@aol.com asks:
"Gentlemen, it is suggested that Kerry took our guys into Cambodia several times on missions sometimes during January and February 1969.
"Unless you personally were in the know or actually carried that sorry son of a bitch, Kerry, please do not respond with what you think the possibilities are, it's the probability that I need.
"... I know the answers in my own mind and experience, but I want as many of you to respond that were in the know so I can set up a webpage to dispel the bullshit Kerry is putting out on this aspect of the Cambodia story.
"Please give the dates of your assignment, your assignment and job title with your response.")
Bob Dole knows a few things about combat wounds.
Yesterday Sen. Bob Dole questioned whether John Kerry deserved his three Purple Hearts and suggested that the top Democrat should apologize to his fellow Vietnam veterans for engaging in anti-war protests while they were still fighting the war.
"I respect his record, but three Purple Hearts - he never bled that I know of," Dole told CNN's "Late Edition." "They were all superficial wounds."
"As far as I know, he never spent one day in the hospital, I don't think he draws any disability pay. He doesn't have any disability. And he's boasting about three Purple Hearts, when you think of some of the people who really got shot up in Vietnam."
Former Lt. Dole, who nearly died from wounds he sustained during the 1944 invasion of Italy as a member of the U.S. 10th Mountain Division, is the nation's foremost champion of veterans causes, recently completing a successful mission to create a World War II memorial on the Capitol Mall this summer.
Sunday Dole called on Kerry to issue a public apology for calling his fellow Vietnam soldiers war criminals during his 1971 Senate testimony, telling CNN: "Maybe he should apologize to all the other two-and-a-half-million veterans who served. He wasn't the only one who was in Vietnam."
"I think Senator Kerry needs to talk about his Senate record, which is pretty thin." Dole added. "That's probably why he's talking about his war record, which is pretty confused."
Years ago Vietnam vet B.G. Burkett was among the very first to publicly discredit John Kerry... he nailed him in his book... "Stolen Valor"... back in 1998. Here's his take on how the captain of the Cambodian swim team fares today...
