HUGH HEWITT played John Kerry’s 1971 Senate testimony on Vietnam on his radio show yesterday and remarks:

I played John Kerry’s 1971 testimony on the radio program, and the response was intense. The first two hours brought scores of calls and e-mails which denounced Kerry for his slander of the military that served in Vietnam and for his understanding of the war. Kerry has thus far successfully dodged a discussion of the specifics of his testimony, and it was very hard to find the audio –it took my producer Duane considerable digging to find the tape.

The impact of actually hearing Kerry slander the military–his accent is unbelievable, and his tone of arrogance and condescension repulsive– is powerful, and I do not believe he can serve successfully as Commander-in-Chief given the reactions I heard from veterans and currently serving military.

Hewitt links to a text version, but unfortunately the audio isn’t available. I hope that someone will put the audio online so that more people can listen and decide for themselves.
