More Documents Reveal John Kerry-Viet Cong Links
A third document has surfaced linking John Kerry's anti-war activities to the North Vietnamese and Vietcong. The documents were found in the Virtual Vietnam Archive at Texas Tech University and reveal some amount of coordination between John Kerry's Vietnam Vetrans Against the War, Ho Chi Minh's North Vietnamese government and the Provisional Government of South Vietnam--better known as the Viet Cong.
The latest document can be found online at a website set up to handle inquiries at the Virtual Vietnam Archive. The website was set up after Chad Evans of In the Bullpen contacted the director of the archive questioning the authenticity of the documents. Chad's analysis of the current document can be found here.
World Net Daily claims that the new document provides context for why John Kerry would adapt the Seven Point Plan of Viet Cong leader Madame Nguyen Thi Binh. Kerry has denied any coordination with the North Vietnamese or Viet Cong.
Chad at In the Bullpen is following this closely and will have updates.
Let me just state, for the record once again, that these documents show that the North Vietnamese and the Viet Cong believed they were influencing John Kerry's group. They also show that John Kerry and the Viet Cong had the same goals and the same solution to the problem of how to bring peace to Vietnam. What they do not show is that John Kerry took marching orders from Ho Chi Minh. As I said in my post on this subject yesterday:
I do not believe [John Kerry] was directed by [the Viet Cong]. They didn't have to. John Kery was on board the ship regardless of who was steering. If the North Vietnamese told John Kerry to jump, yet he was going to jump anyway that says nothing about control or power.Why would John Kerry need to take orders from people who were working out of the same playbook?
