Kerry's "IS" Problem

Monday, 20 September 2004 12:00 AM

In the context that I use the word “IS,” it’s an abbreviation of two key words that gripped the attention of hundreds of FBI Special Agents in the late 60s and early 70s. Many agree that these years did not represent the best conduct that Americans can muster. I wager most would just as soon forget those years. It was a time of significant domestic terrorism.

In hundreds of FBI communications mentioning John Kerry, “IS” stands for “Internal Security.” The title implies that a person’s name appearing on an FBI document bearing the acronym “IS” is considered a potential threat to national security.

If the subject of an FBI investigation was suspected of bank robbery, then the title of the FBI file would read, “John Kerry – (suspect or subject) – bank robbery at Fifth and Main, Anywhere, USA.” Likewise, if the crime was auto theft, the title of the file would be, “John Kerry – suspect – Interstate Theft of Vehicle.”

The designation of “IS” at that time meant that the person named was engaged in activities that go against the very heart of what it means to be an American. “IS” called into question the loyalty of the subject, among other things, and set the matter aside as a special case. After all, you could rob a bank or write bad checks, but that didn’t mean you couldn’t still be loyal to and love your country.

It was during those years that the war in Vietnam was forever fixed as the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was also during those years that our fighting men were falsely accused of wholesale atrocities.

Veterans returning from Vietnam were cursed and spat upon, thanks to the work of dishonest people like John Kerry. They used the war and the civil rights movement as vehicles to further their own personal agendas or accelerate their favorite political causes, such as the quest to bring Communism to our shores. It was then, and is still, a lifelong dream for many in this country to see the end of our republic as we know it and to promote the rise of the various “isms” that so many of us have fought long and hard to prevent.

It is disheartening and alarming to think that some people who were raised here in privilege and plenty actually hate capitalism, but, if we are ever to get to the core of our political problems, we must face this ugly fact.

Senator John Kerry was an antiwar protestor in college. Then, he applied to the reserves and, as fate would have it, he was sent to Vietnam. Once there, it appears he took up the business end of the weapons of war and used them with great gusto.

Four months and three Purple Hearts later, he was back in the U.S. and back to his antiwar activities. Giving no thought to the damage he was doing to our fighting men still “in country” or the POWS held there, or even to the Veterans who had returned, he libeled them as baby killers, using phony allegations and falsified documents.

Kerry now fights the efforts of those who want to obtain authentic documents about his military, medical, and financial records. I would settle for the FBI files. In those files, we would learn about the real John Kerry. His recent comments that paint the war in Iraq as illegitimate tell me that he is returning to his roots. I believe the reasons he would do that are contained in FBI files that only Senator John Kerry can request and then release. Mr. Kerry, we are waiting.
