Swift Boat Veterans' Ad Hits Kerry for Meeting With Vietnamese Communists

Thursday, 23 September 2004 12:00 AM

"Eventually Jane Fonda apologized for her activities, but John Kerry refuses to. In a time of war, can America trust a man who betrayed his country?" the ad concludes.

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth reportedly plans to spend $1.2 million to air the new ad in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Nevada and New Mexico.

In June, CNSNews.com reported that newly released FBI files revealed that

According to the files, Kerry met with representatives from the North Vietnamese government in Paris in 1971 in an effort to secure the release of captured American prisoners of war. Kerry has previously acknowledged meeting "both delegations" of Vietnamese communists in Paris in 1970, but has said nothing of the 1971 meeting.

Kerry met with representatives from "both delegations" of the Vietnamese peace process in Paris in 1970, according to Kerry's own testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on April 22, 1971. The Democratic Republic of Vietnam was the government of the North Vietnamese communists, and the Provisional Revolutionary Government was an arm of the North Vietnamese government that included the Vietcong.

But Kerry's meetings with the Vietnamese delegations were in direct violation of laws that forbade private citizens from negotiating with foreign powers, according to researcher and author Jerry Corsi, who began studying the anti-war movement in the early 1970s.

Corsi believes Kerry is hiding key aspects about his anti-war past from the public as he seeks the presidency.

"Kerry has admitted to one meeting with Madam Binh [head of the Provisional Revolutionary Government]. Now we have reason to believe there was a second [meeting], so let's press them to admit the second," Corsi told CNSNews.com in June.

"Kerry needs to explain to the American people why he directly went into negotiations with communists," Corsi added. He has written an essay on Kerry's dealings with the Vietemese communists on the Internet site, WinterSoldier.com
