Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt offers his take on former Secretary of State John Kerry dealing with the Iranians.
RICHMOND — The last time Sen. John McCain lay dying, he was in a North Vietnamese prison cell having been brutally tortured.
Over the propaganda loudspeaker, one of Mr. McCain’s fellow prisoners of war would later recall, the brave Americans heard the voice, clearly that of an American, testifying before Congress that it was the American forces like John McCain — not the North Vietnamese — who were committing torture and murder over in Vietnam.
American servicemen “personally raped, cut off ears, 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 fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam,” claimed the American, reportedly a U.S. Navy officer.
Such unverified testimony in the hands of the North Vietnamese was a massive propaganda win. And a devastating blow to American POWs, such as John McCain, who were clinging to life in such savage conditions.
Decorated Vietnam War veteran and POW Paul Galanti would later recall that it was the soft, effeminate pronunciation of “Genghis Khan” that tipped him off that the testifying turncoat was none other than John Kerry, who would later become a senator, his party’s failed presidential nominee and eventually one of the worst secretaries of state in U.S. history.
“I don’t remember hearing his name, but he’s the only human being I’ve ever heard that said ‘Genghis Khan,’ ” recalled Mr. Galanti, pronouncing the name “Jenjis Kahn.”
“When I heard him saying that a couple of months ago, I said, ‘My God! That’s the same guy I heard in Hanoi they were promoting as a big friend of theirs!’ “
As heroes like John McCain and Paul Galanti rotted in prisoner camps, John Kerry — safely back stateside — was throwing away his medals and accusing his former fellow servicemen of committing the worst atrocities imaginable.
In other words, plotting a lifelong political career.
Once again, America finds Mr. McCain heroically fighting for his life, this time against cancer. Perhaps inspired by such heroism, Mr. Kerry has dusted off his old turncoat from his French closet and is turning traitor against the United States again.
According to the Boston Globe, Mr. Kerry has been spotted in New York City, conspiring with our sworn enemies to undermine U.S. foreign policy.
