Kerry's Phoenix Project Connections Debated on MS-NBC

The work that Thomas Lipscomb has done at the New York Sun exposing John Kerry's participation in a debate on whether to assassinate several US politicians in 1971 may be gaining some traction. Last night on Joe Scarborough's show, Lipscomb himself appeared with Pat Buchanon and Lawrence O'Donnell, who apparently couldn't keep from going into hysterics over the questioning, according to Tim Graham at The Corner:

"Scarborough Country" was a little wild on MSNBC last night, since usually calm liberal Lawrence O'Donnell was yelling and refusing to shut up. The topic? Whether young John F. Kerry was present at a meeting of Vietnam Veterans Against the War when they debated assassinating pro-war politicians. O'Donnell was loudly protesting that no one can remember what they were doing 33 years ago, so why would anyone focus on what Kerry did in 1971? Youthful indiscretion! Youthful indiscretion!

It would have been nice if liberals like O'Donnell had tried that line when the networks were doing 63 stories on Lt. Bush's dental records and other minutiae of his National Guard service.

I've arranged for Thomas Lipscomb to appear on the Northern Alliance Radio Network this Saturday, in our second hour, where we'll also have Kenneth Timmerman, the author of The French Betrayal of America. It should be a great hour -- if you're in our broadcast area, make sure you're tuned in.

I'm also still waiting for responses on my e-mails to reader reps from the Washington Post and the New York Times as to why their articles on Kerry's FBI surveillance failed to mention this topic for proper context. I got a mesage from the Los Angeles Times yesterday informing me that my concerns had been passed along to the National news editors and the original reporters, but nothing further. As soon as I hear something substantive, I will pass it along immediately.
