Sen. Kennedy and the KGB

In a letter dated 14 May 1983, KGB head Viktor Chebrikov wrote General Secretary of the Communist Party Yuri Andropov regarding our very own Sen. Ted Kennedy’s offer to assist Soviet leaders with a counter public-relations strategy to President Ronald Reagan’s successful foreign policy. Former U.S. Sen. John Tunney repeatedly traveled to Moscow on Kennedy’s behalf hoping to strike up a partnership with Andropov, including arranging some TV spots for the Soviets to propagandize Americans. Fortunately for America, Andropov died before this partnership came to fruition, and, once again, Kennedy was proved ever so wrong.

According to recently released KGB documents, Tunney also traveled to Moscow in March 1980, meeting with KGB agents. Agent Vasiliy Mitrokhin defected to Britain in 1992 and smuggled out copious notes of these meetings. Kennedy, battling Jimmy Carter for the Democrat nomination, thought that Carter was too belligerent with the Soviets and had caused souring relations. Mitrokhin noted that due to Kennedy’s disagreement with the Carter White House, the senator took foreign policy in his own hands in order to force Carter to act accordingly. Kennedy couldn’t help himself—actually fighting to win a war remains a foreign concept to white flag liberals.

Far worse, Kennedy and Tunney are likely guilty of treason—violating Article three, Section three of the U.S. Constitution, the U.S. Code and the Logan Act of 1799, barring citizens from giving aid and comfort to the enemy or from engaging in diplomacy with foreign governments in an effort to undermine U.S. policy. The junior senator from Massachusetts, one John F. Kerry, also remains guilty for meeting with the North Vietnamese in 1970.

Update: “Petition for Investigation and Indictment” of John F. Kerry for treason

In recent months, we have received thousands of inquiries about The Patriot’s “Petition for Investigation and Indictment” of John Kerry in reference to his anti-American activities during the Vietnam War. According to legal experts, Kerry’s meetings with enemy agents from Communist North Vietnam on multiple occasions between 1970 and 1972 are not covered under Jimmy Carter’s amnesty as outlined in EO 4483.

For that reason, on 22 October 2004, we delivered to then U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft a “Petition for Investigation and Indictment” calling on the Department of Justice to determine conclusively whether Kerry’s actions, in direct violation of UCMJ (Article 104 part 904), U.S. Code (18 USC Sec. 2381 and 18 USC Sec. 953) and other applicable laws and acts of Congress, constitute treason, and disqualify him from any future campaign for any national office. (To read the text of the petitioners’ request, link here.)

We plan to pursue this issue, as its endorsers have requested, to its resolution. We fully expect an answer from Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, but the Justice Department has so far refused to take any action on the petition. In reality, given the political sensitivity of this request, we don’t expect any action until after the 2006 midterm elections at the earliest. To expedite our request, we are forming alliances with other groups like the Swift boat Vets, Vietnam Vets associations and POW groups, as well as moving forward with this legal challenge.

Nevertheless, the bottom line is we have no way of forcing the Justice Department’s hand on this. Any movement to investigate Kerry would be perceived as “purely political,” and thus the DoJ likely will not pursue it.

Nonetheless—we are loaded for bear and will make sure this issue is front and center should Kerry campaign for president again.

In the meantime, it’s not too late to sign the petition. We will update the number of signers each time we make official inquiry to determine the status of our request.

Memo to John Kerry: Where are those military service records you promised to release?
