Kerry and the Killing

Tuesday, 14 September 2004 12:00 AM

For more than 30 years, Kerry has portrayed a heroic version of a life-and-death struggle – of staring down a suspected guerrilla who was about to fire upon Kerry's Swift Boat. It was kill or be killed. At least that's the version Kerry tells.

Eyewitnesses offer a far different account. They allege Kerry shot a wounded teenager retreating from battle.

Kerry has made public hundreds of pages of official Navy documents to bolster his many claims. Conspicuous by its absence is the official after-action report of what actually happened that day – the after-action report written by John Kerry himself.

In an exclusive, The Point has obtained this document from U.S. Navy archives. The document can be found at www.newscentral.tv. The pertinent section reads:

"PCF 94 beached in center of ambush in front of small path when VC [Viet Cong] sprung up from bunker 10 feet from unit. Man ran with weapon towards hootch. Forward M-60 [machine] gunner wounded man in leg. OinC [Officer-in-charge, LTjg Kerry] jumped ashore and gave pursuit while other units saturated area with fire and beached placing assault parties ashore. OinC of PCF 94 [Kerry] chased VC inland behind hootch and shot him while he fled capturing one B-40 rocket launcher with round in chamber."

So there you have it. The official record – written by John Kerry – supports what the critics have alleged rather than the John Wayne Kerry version the Massachusetts liberal has been telling.

Death is a reality of war. Events occur that are not for the faint of heart. Yet John Kerry's account of killing what turned out to actually be a wounded man while he fled continues Kerry's pattern of lies, exaggerations and embellishments.

Killing a wounded man as he retreated from battle is not an action that most servicemen would brag about. But then again, most servicemen would not return home and attack the very country they were supposed to fight for.

And that’s The Point. Log on to www.newscentral.tv and tell me what you think.
