Kerry in 1971
C-SPAN ran the entire speech of 27 year-old John Kerry speaking to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in April of 1971. It was truly one of the great speeches I've heard. Anyone on the Left who doubts Kerry should see and listen to this speech. The audio was presented by Pacifica Radio.
When he finished, the crowd of anti-war veterans burst into loud and sustained applause. Senators Symington, Fulbright and Aiken could only praise the young man who presented the testimony.
I am convinced that John Kerry will not wander into invasions or war. Been there, done that, seen the slaughter, didn't like it.
