I also posted this request on the main page. I can't locate a free version of this video that works. In the past I've asked for the help of the Chiefs Planet and the C P has always come through for me. I'm asking for your help on finding this video.

========================
This is not on the Swift Vets & POW's for Truth website. Here's what it says:
"The following transcript is taken from ABC's special June 30, 1971 broadcast of "The Dick Cavett Show," during which former Navy Lieutenant John Kerry represented Vietnam Veterans Against the War. He was opposed by fellow Navy veteran John O'Neill, representing Vietnam Veterans for a Just Peace. Streaming video of the debate (rtsp://video.c-span.org/project/c04/c04_rwh081504.rm) is now available from C-SPAN."
========================

However, when I go to the C-Span website it's not there either.

Dude, if you are going to talk about politics post it in the DC forum not both places. I think I just saw another warning about this yesterday.

Frankly it doesnt help the conservative side around here maintain any credibility when we have someone so consistently drawing the ire of the rest of the board. I don't know what you want with the video clip but haven't you "helped" enough already?

Don't worry. The liberal side of the board already knew GF had no credibility to begin with.

It works for me. It can't work for you. I emailed C-span. They said they don't have the video up on their site any longer. :hmmm:

Yeah, still working.
Yes, it's a link to C-Spans website where the link to the video is located. When I click on the link, an "external protocol request" dialogue box appears. I then click "launch application" and the video starts.

If I had to do it all over again, I'd just watch O'Neills opening remarks.

Sounds like C-Span has banned you. :)

With that "swell" white get up he was sporting, I kept waiting for him to jump up and break a move or two. :) The last lime I saw duds like that, was when Travolta did that really bad movie. :hmmm:

On the flip side, Kerrys hair was a bonus as well. He looked like a talking mop.

Just be sure to have the Bee Gees Saturday Night Fever disk in when you watch. It will enhance the moment, trust me.

I'm watching the video now. So far Kerry looks like a pompous jackass. O'neill is really kicking his ass. Kerry makes a smartass comment from time to time, but O'neill is one sharp cookie.

I guess I must be a political junkie because I watched the whole video and found it riveting. What a good debate. John O'neill is a tough SOB (not like Carl P). Kerry is a sniveling Frenchy. I'm glad I finally had a chance to watch that video. I've heard alot about it.
