Stolen Honor

a documentary "exposing John Kerry's record of betrayal"
I think Clinton's advice to Kerry to stop talking about Vietnam was great advice, and I would truly rather that era be put back to bed. It seems however, that it cannot; soldiers' nightmares are back to haunt us all.

Apparently, a for-profit Harrisburg, Pennsylvania corporation, Red White & Blue Productions, has produced a documentary called Stolen Honor which
investigates how John Kerry’s actions during the Vietnam era impacted the treatment of American soldiers and POWs. Using John Kerry’s own words, the documentary juxtaposes John Kerry’s actions with the words of veterans who were still in Vietnam when John Kerry was leading the anti-war movement.

Initial funding for the film was provided by Pennsylvania veterans.

President of Red, White and Blue Productions, Inc. is Carlton Sherwood, "a life-long newspaper and television investigative reporter," Pulitzer Prize and Peabody Award winner.

In addition to his investigation, Sherwood has first hand memories of Vietnam as a decorated, thrice-wounded, former Marine who served on Vietnam's DMZ. Sherwood also covered the anti-war movement as a journalist.

I tried to play the sample clips, but my computer wouldn't cooperate.

Is this competition for Farenhate 9/11? I don't know.

Is it sad and potentially divisive? Yes.

Is it really necessary for these vets to speak up now? Apparently.

Most of all, I dread hearing the Democrats' reaction. They don't seem to celebrate and defend freedom of speech when it's something they don't want to hear. What they actually celebrate and defend is Michael Moore's movie itself . . . not the freedom that allowed him to make it.
