Figures. Obama Considers Genghis John Kerry For Defense Secretary

Do you remember this lying antiwar blowhard’s testimony before Congress?
You know… The one where he lied and likened his Army brethren fighting in Vietnam to ‘Ghenghis Khan.”

Here is what Kerry said about his fellow soldiers back in 1971:

“They had 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 Ghengis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam.”

The disgusting speech propelled this antiwar idiot into a career in politics.

Now Barack Obama is considering Kerry for Secretary of Defense.
The Washington Post reported:

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus.

Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

John O. Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism adviser, is a leading contender for the CIA job if he wants it, officials said. If Brennan goes ahead with his plan to leave government, Michael J. Morell, the agency’s acting director, is the prohibitive favorite to take over permanently. Officials cautioned that the White House discussions are still in the early phases and that no decisions have been made.

Petraeus’s resignation last week after revelations of an extramarital affair have complicated what was already an intricate puzzle to reassemble the administration’s national security and diplomatic pieces for Obama’s second term.

The process has become further complicated by congressional ire over not being told that Petraeus was under FBI investigation, on top of what are likely to be contentious closed-door hearings this week over administration actions surrounding the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

    That lying gigolo has never released his military records as promised. He and Zero have a lot in common–they hide their past.

    Vets and current military, make your voices heard.

    Might as well have Kerry for SoD. We already have the worst, most inept president in history, a man who never had a job before this one, who crashed the economy, who blames everyone and everything for his failures, who caters to radical Muslims, who appologizes for the US and bows to world leaders, and who has a dozen impeachable offences against him already, yet voters invited him back for another 4 years. How much worse could Ketchup Boy be than obama?

    He’ll throw his medals at our adversaries to intimidate them.

    Does anyone know who the Republicans can run for his Senate Seat? Please don’t say Scott Brown or Mitt Romney.

  • golfmann

    this would be a good time for a review:

    Zell Miller-D
    (former Georgia Governor who was appointed by a successor Republican Governor to fill-out the term of deceased Republican Senator, Paul Coverdell, and obtw, a United States Marine)
    speaking at the 2004 RNC, Keynote Address! – compare to Krispy Kreme, 2012
    with video! if nothing else, it will arouse your Patriotism

    Visit for all the information about John Fraud Kerry you ever DIDN’T want to know.

    While I was in my first month in the pipeline to Vietnam at Richards Gebaur Air Force Base in Kansas City, on January 31, 1971, John Kerry and members of Vietnam Veterans Against the War (V.V.A.W.) met in a Detroit hotel to discuss war crimes they claimed to have participated in or witnessed during their combat tours in Vietnam. During the next three days, more than 100 Vietnam veterans and 16 civilians gave anguished, emotional testimony describing hundreds of atrocities against innocent civilians in South Vietnam, including rape, arson, torture, murder, and the shelling or napalming of entire villages. The witnesses stated that these acts were being committed casually and routinely, under orders, as a matter of policy.

    In April, the V.V.A.W. stormed Washington in a week-long protest. At its height, spokesman John Kerry went before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations to accuse the United States military of committing massive numbers of war crimes in Vietnam. The appearance launched Kerry’s political career. The charges he made shocked and sickened a nation, changed the course of a war and stained the reputation of the American military for decades.

    But the mass murder of civilians was never American policy in Vietnam. War crimes were the exception, not the rule. And the Winter Soldier tribunal itself — which John Kerry had helped moderate — turned out to be “packed with pretenders and liars.”

    johm kerry was a leader of the antivietnam war movement which was controlled by the kgb.

    so kerry will help obama be more flexible.

    So, now that the traitor Zero is unencumbered by his own election prospect, who will replace the CIA head? Zero knows so many members of the communist party that it will be a hard choice. If those working covertly for the U.S. have sense, they will take steps to avoid Zero’s treachery to come.

  • bobdog

    Kerry…wasn’t he a famous war hero or something? I think he drove a motor boat.

    With an extensive military career like his, I would think he would be a perfect candidate. The Defense Department needs men of experience and resolve.

    Both John Kerry and Jane Fonda should have been locked up!

    Kerry negotiated with both sides in the vietnam war. He sadi so himself. As such, given such a mendacious statement, he cannot be considered for any top fed. post (it is a crime even that he is a US Senator): the 2 sides he met with were the north Vietnamese and the Viet Cong – -not the US. so, he brought back from France and sold “both sides” propaganda in the US. A disgusting man. Swiftboating == the outing of the truth on someone who has lied about events in the past. Usually the person whom this is done to is confident that the course of time has dimmed the remembrance of others at a particular event or that most have died off from natural causes. Unfortunately for this JFK, many soldiers who witnessed his real actions are still alive and with-it. This JFK helped give aid and succor to the enemy which led to the death of many in the Vietnamese bogs and swamps.
