"In deciding on the best candidate to support in next year's election, I looked for qualities that are important in a President: leadership, experience and courage.

There are many candidates who possess admirable traits but only one who has summoned the nerve to stand up to our government and for what's right over and over again: John Kerry.

To speak out against bad policies after a career of accomplishments, as I recently did, is a civic duty. To do so as a young person, as John Kerry did, in the face of the unremitting official hostility to end a bad war, is truly inspiring. John Kerry didn't have to go to Vietnam. He volunteered and served bravely earning a Silver Star, a Bronze Star, and three Purple Hearts. And when he came home as a decorated hero, he didn't have to fight the war. But John Kerry helped lead the fight to end the war, he earned the wrath of Richard Nixon and his cronies, and he won the respect of Americans for his courage."

I hope you will join us-

Joe Wilson

1. BFEE is getting scared, thanks to Wilson and Kerry.
From the State Department to the CIA to the Pentagon, the best and the brightest in the government service are getting to know who and what the BFEE really are. And John Kerry, good Lord willing, in January 2005 will appoint an honest Attorney General.

Kerry Calls for Special Counsel in Wilson Investigation

September 29, 2003

Boston, MA Democratic Presidential candidate John Kerry said, This is more than another example of politics driving the Bush Administration. The bottom line is that outing a CIA agent endangers lives, threatens national security and breaks faith with those who put their lives on the line to protect this country. It is outrageous that the President who campaigned with a promise to restore integrity to the White House refuses to get to the bottom of this. No one should shield criminals who compromise national security for political purposes especially if they are on the Presidents staff.

This investigation should be immediately removed from the politics of the Department of Justice. Too many serious questions exist to risk allowing any potential for political intervention. The track record of John Ashcroft and this Justice Department do not adequately assure Americans that legitimate questions will be answered fully without any political bias. A special counsel should be appointed immediately so that we can find out how George Bush let this happen and hold those responsible accountable.

3. Kerry's been on the case of terrorists like ... Ollie North!
During Iran-Contra, the Senate wanted to prevent another "failed presidency," so gave Pruneface Reagan a pass on impeachment and kept Sen. Kerry off that committee. Remember all the times that Alzheimer's addled schlub Raygun said "I don't recall. I don't remember. I don't know. Mommy!" during his testimony? Kerry wouldn't have taken "no" for an answer.

Well, there was one Big Turd who stayed out of the dock. That was vice president and former CIA head George Herbert Walker Bush. He claimed he was "out of the loop" on all the illegalities of a war which was little more than terrorism of the worst sort the killing of innocent women and children in the name of Freedom. It turns out Bush was up to his eyeballs in the Treason, proof being found in Def Sec Caspar Weinberger's notebooks. As a lame duck President in Dec 1992, Bush pardoned Weinberger and a whole slew of Traitors to keep his sorry arse out of the sling.

Helping run this "neat idea" of aming the terrorists in Central America with money made on arms sales to the terrorists in Iran was the gap-tooth turd Ollie North. It turns out that many of the people Ollie did business with in Honduras, etc., were also in the cocaine importation business. What a money-maker and Sen. John Kerry was on his case. To pay him back, North got the FBI's crack anti-terror squad to investigate KERRY!

Here's some relevant history:



In Washington, at the request of Irangate special prosecutor Lawrence Walsh, a new grand jury has been empanelled to consider evidence that Bush and President Reagan were very much "in the loop" on the criminal enterprise. Also in Washington, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), chair of the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Terrorism and Narcotics, announced May 18 that he is examining thousands of newly released photocopied pages from Lt. Col. Oliver North's notebooks, which expose White House lying on the Noriega case. The National Security Archive and Ralph Nader's Public Citizen released thousands of the same pages at two press conferences on May 8 and May 18.

Senator Kerry declared, "The North notebooks confirm that high-level U.S. officials, including officials at the CIA and the NSC , knew about General Noriega's drug trafficking and corruption in 1986, kept him on the U.S. payroll and discussed helping him clean up his image in return for his help for the contras."

"The information was important because throughout 1988, while my hearings were taking place, the White House was denying that it had known about Noriega's drug trafficking." Kerry added, "There is something fundamental that is violated in a democracy when the White House can classify documents as 'Codeword Top Secret' in order to suppress politically damaging information in an election year." Kerry suggested that Walsh examine sworn testimony of former Assistant Secretary of State Elliot Abrams and Donald Gregg to determine if they committed perjury. Kerry said the documents also raise questions of whether NSC and intelligence officers engaged in domestic surveillance in violation of the law.

The North notebooks provide a wealth of new evidence. One page, released for the first time May 8, lists a "mtg w V.P." at 12 noon, August 6, 1986. North began that day by meeting with Israeli terrorist expert, Amiram Nir. According to North's notes, he then went to an extraordinary meeting at the White House with members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. According to his later testimony, North "lied, lied, lied" to the lawmakers about the Iran-contra conspiracy. North then met with several other covert agents, including Gregg. Finally he met with Vice President Bush. Did the Vice President discuss with North his lies to an official oversight committee of the U.S. Congress?
