Winter Soldiers: Kerry and Beauchamp

Both John Kerry and Scott Beauchamp have now earned recognition as liars.

But a more interesting theory is now being advanced, called the "Winter Soldier Syndrome." And it has a most intriguing support, direct from the Soviet Union's upper-level propaganda masters:

During the Vietnam War we spread vitriolic stories around the world, pretending that America's presidents sent Genghis Khan-style barbarian soldiers to Vietnam who raped at random, taped electrical wires to human genitals, cut off limbs, blew up bodies and razed entire villages. Those weren't facts. They were our tales, but some seven million Americans ended up being convinced their own president, not communism, was the enemy. As Yuri Andropov, who conceived this dezinformatsiya war against the U.S., used to tell me, people are more willing to believe smut than holiness.

Kerry and Beauchamp: dupes.

Of maybe, in Beauchamp's case, not.
