Maybe we should oblige him and file some FOI papers with the FBI.

Mr. Kerry and the FBI
Monday, September 13, 2004
We are apparently amidst a national conversation between the Kerry campaign and the mainstream media about President Bush’s military records when he served as a fighter pilot in the National Guard. The question of whether he missed a physical or several meetings seems to be asked over and over again. The catalyst for all these questions is the federal records which are kept about each member of the armed forces.
These documents are the best evidence of what really happened at that time. Of lesser value are the memories of various individuals who served with George W. Bush. Did they help him get into the reserves? And can they accurately recall whether he was or was not attending a meeting? We all know that memories can fade after 30 years.
With regard to President Bush, the records are the most important find in the minds of the investigative journalists. If the records are not favorable to Bush, then the Kerry campaign benefits.
Meanwhile, Kerry continues to refuse to release his complete military records, which would answer a number of important questions about his service, his medals, and what happened after he returned from Vietnam. So, why aren’t the mainstream media pounding on Kerry to get his military records?
Lurking just around the corner are some federal records that may have an even greater impact on Kerry’s bid for the presidency, but mainstream investigative journalists are avoiding this issue like the plague.
Somewhere, perhaps in the basement of FBI headquarters, located at 9th and Pennsylvania in Washington, D.C., are 14 cartons' worth of investigative reports involving Mr. Kerry’s activities when he returned from Vietnam. Remarkably, there are records of Mr. Kerry’s attendance at an antiwar, anti-American rally where the assassination of U.S. senators who supported the war was openly discussed as a viable political tactic.
Before the mainstream media scoff at this evidence, I think it might be useful to review some of the activities of the New-Left, Far-Left, or, as I like to call it, the Hard-Left during those times, which might explain the FBI’s interests in conducting a major criminal investigation of Kerry.
These were not just over-the-top statements made by hyperventilating kids. At that time the country was suffering from wholesale domestic terrorism of a very deadly and destructive kind – and I submit that many of the leaders of these violent groups networked closely together to obtain the maximum impact against the hated “establishment.”
I have in my possession a remarkable, if not well known, professionally made DVD entitled “The Weather Underground.” This Academy Award nominee for best documentary feature is described by the Christian Science Monitor as “... a terrific movie, energetic and articulate. It’s the don’t miss documentary of the season.” The New York Times is quoted as saying “A great story! Terrifically smart!” The Boston Globe, now keenly interested in the federal records of Bush, says, “Essential viewing.” The Washington Post shouts: “Exhilarating. Couldn’t be better timed.”
This is the story of violent, hard-left radicals with attitudes much like young John Kerry. They bombed, robbed, threatened, rioted, burned, injured and killed members and symbols of the hated “establishment.” More important, it is about home-grown revolutionaries who supported communism vs. the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
I’ll leave it to the reader to conclude why The Washington Post, the Boston Globe and The New York Times like this DVD so much. Do you think they were rooting for the FBI? Does the story of surveillances, arrests, search warrants and wiretaps excite these mainstream media types? Or do they really pine for the good old days of overturned, burning police cars and bombing conspiracies hatched over a bong?
The entire issue of what the FBI knows about Kerry and when they knew it is being totally ignored. But not for long. As the existence and contents of federal records become more and more a part of this presidential campaign, it is inevitable that we will finally get around to talking about Kerry’s FBI files and what’s in them.
Do Hillary and Bill already know? Is that why they don’t seem too worried about a Kerry win, which would end Hillary’s realistic chances for a run in 2008?
The FBI records on John Kerry go far beyond your usual FBI background investigation – the FBI was trying to determine if John Kerry should do hard time for conspiracy to overthrow the U.S. government through violent means, among other possible charges.
