GOP Traitors and Evil War-Mongers
The new release of extended versions of Nixon's papers now confirms this long-standing belief, usually dismissed as a "conspiracy theory" by Republican conservatives. Now it has been substantiated by none other than right-wing columnist George Will.
Nixon's newly revealed records show for certain that in 1968, as a presidential candidate, he ordered Anna Chennault, his liaison to the South Vietnam government, to persuade them refuse a cease-fire being brokered by President Lyndon Johnson.
Nixon's interference with these negotiations violated President John Adams's 1797 Logan Act, banning private citizens from intruding into official government negotiations with a foreign nation.
Of course, after Nixon was elected, the Vietnam war raged for 7 more years, killing hundreds of thousands of Americans and many more Vietnamese.
More recently, GOP asshole and psychopath Tom Cotton organized his GOP Senate colleagues to undercut Obama's peace-oriented negotiations with Iran.
Turns out Cotton is a young neocon, Israel-tool and is a protege of horrible person Bill Kristol.
According to the website LobeLog, the senator who spearheaded the letter, freshman Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton, received nearly $1 million in donations to his election campaign efforts last year from the Emergency Committee for Israel, run by neoconservative pundit Bill Kristol. The Intercept reports Cotton was set to appear at a secretive meeting of weapons contractors the day after sending the letter.
