    Interesting how the mainstream media doesn't jump on things like this. I know I for one was much more interested in Bush's Dental records ;)

    UPDATE OF A STORY: A V.V.A.R. SPECIAL "The Los Angeles Times" recently reported that selected leaders of Kerry's Vietnam Veterans Against the War met with representatives of Hanoi who told these leaders which senators they wanted assassinated. And that Kerry participated in a "closed -door discussion" on November of 1971 on whether to do this. Kerry denies this, saying he resigned the organization in July of 1971. But there is a problem. Reporter Thomas H. Lipscomb in an article in "The New York Sun" wrote: "A Vietnam veteran who said he remembers John Kerry participating in a November 1971 Kansas City meeting at which an assassination plot was discussed says an official with the Kerry presidential campaign called him this month and pressured him to change his story. The veteran, John Musgrave, says he was called twice by the head of Veterans for Kerry, John Hurley, who told him, "Why don't you refresh your memory and call that reporter back ?" Musgrave said, "I told Hurley it was my first meeting as an state officer of VVAW and I remember Kerry being there. I remember what I remember." By then, the recollections of six witnesses, along with minutes and FBI records placed Kerry at the Kansas City meeting, but the story has since then been sanitized until it simply disappeared. However, John Musgrave is a friend of Mr. Magruder and lives in the same area in Kansas. He was one of 62 Vietnam vets Mr. Magruder interviewed in Houston for this film. He appears in a photo with Mr. Magruder and General William Westmoreland at the end of the film. At that time Musgrave was running for President of Vietnam Veterans of America. Said Mr. Magruder, "Musgrave once autographed a book of his for me, "On Snipers, Laughter, and Death: Vietnam Poems," as follows: "To Len - a true friend of the Vietnam veteran and a friend of mine - your buddy- John. Said Mr. Magruder, "I have great admiration for John Musgrave. He is a man of great integrity and courage. He was very badly wounded in Vietnam and earned three Purple Hearts. He is very highly regarded in this community . He got out of VVAW when he saw how it was being used by the Left. If he says Kerry was at that meeting in Kansas City, then Kerry was at that meeting, period. I think Kerry has a problem here that has been buried by a media that is campaigning for Kerry."

    There is no doubt that this story is true. Kerry admits being a member of that group. Then he lies and says he wasn't at that meeting. " I was for that group before I was against it"

    I thought this story was true, before I thought it was not true.

    "By then, the recollections of six witnesses, along with minutes and FBI records placed Kerry at the Kansas City meeting" but maybe we should take the word of John Kerry over them ;)

    You're exactly right...KErry has come out and said he wasn't at the meeting then said he left the meeting after the assination plot was first mentioned.

    Several witnesses have said to the contrary he had stayed through the entire meeting.....
