FACT: John Kerry went to Paris in 1970 and met with North Vietnamese diplomats to discuss their peace plans. This was at a time when the U.S. was still at war with NV and we had POWs in NV prison camps. Here is a quote of his after the meetings: "I have been to Paris. I have talked with both delegations at the peace talks, that is to say the Democratic Republic of Vietnam [Hanoi] and the Provisional Revolutionary Government [Viet Cong]" FACT: John Kerry was in the Naval Reserves at the time and was not, in any way, authorized to negotiate with the enemy. And he was not authorized to speak for or to act in behalf of the U.S. government. FACT: In 1971, John Kerry called a press conference in Washington and urged President Nixon to accept the seven-point surrender plan of Madame Nguyen Thi Binh, the foreign minister of the political wing of the Viet Cong. My question is, do you believe that John Kerry's acknowledged meeting with the North Vietnamese in 1970 in Paris should be considered as treason? If you believe that he committed treason, please explain why. If you don't believe that he committed treason, please explain why.
