HOW A KERRY PRESIDENCY WOULD RESPOND
TERRORIST ATTACKS UPON THE U.S.A.
By Thomas S. Winter
Madrid, 2004? No. This time terrorists target U.S. cities in early November, 2004, and panicked voters throw the presidential election to John F. Kerry, to the cheers of gloating, bloodthirsty terrorists everywhere.
The tragic scenario continues.
Hundreds of television cameras zoom in as the new U.S. President, returning from an "international peace conference" in Paris, steps to the bank of microphones at Andrews Air Force Base.
In his deep, sonorous voice, President John F. Kerry, flanked by Kofi Annan and Jacques Chirac, utters these fateful words:
Could it happen? Would President Kerry lead the free world to a second Munich?
As Editor-in-Chief of Human Events, I've been covering issues of war and peace for more than 40 years. I don't scare easily. Yet, I don't know when I've read anything more chilling than Reckless Disregard: How Liberal Democrats Undermine Our Military, Endanger Our Soldiers, and Jeopardize Our National Security (Washington: Regnery, 2004; 272 pages; $27.95) -- the powerful new book by Lieutenant Colonel Robert "Buzz" Patterson, the decorated U.S. Air Force officer and pilot who carried the nuclear codes -- America's nuclear strike capabilities -- for President Bill Clinton.
During his years at the side of a Liberal President, Lieutenant Colonel Patterson saw "up close and personal" precisely why Democrats cannot be trusted with America's national security. You may have read his first book, Dereliction of Duty: The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America's National Security (Washington: Regnery, 2003; 218 pages; $27.95).
In Reckless Disregatd, Lt. Col. Patterson answers a profoundly important question: How did the patriotic party of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, John Fitzgerald. Kennedy, and Henry "Scoop" Jackson devolve into the military loathing, appeasement oriented "Carter-Clinton-Kerry" party of today -- a party that often seems to be still debating whether or not the killers who murdered 3,000 New Yorkers on September 11, 2001 are really the bad guys, a party that desires the White House more than victory over terrorism?
To quote Lt. Col. Patterson:
In Reckless Disregard, Lt. Col. Patterson reveals:
The important stories in Reckless Disregard just keep coming: How Jimmy Carter's policies encouraged the Islamic fundamentalist terrorism that plagues the Free World today; How Bill Clinton crippled U.S. national security; Why Richard Clarke, the architect of the failed "law enforcement approach" to fighting terrorism, should be ignored.
Reckless Disregard is really two shocking books in one. It is the story of a major political party that seems willing to abandon America to its enemies. It is also the saga of an ambitious, ruthless political opportunist and Democratic Party leader, John Kerry, who could become the most dangerously Leftwing, anti-defense president in American history.
If one likes inside intelligence and exposure of hushed-up secrets, he or she will be fascinated by what is revealed in Reckless Disregard.
Reckless Disregard is not just a book. It is an indictment by a military insider of a Democratic Party that has been hijacked by the antiwar Left and is all but certain to appease global terrorism at the first opportunity!
