Another Bombshell Kerry Quote from 1971
Note: I found this gem on the Winter Soldier site. This is staggering. The comment came just before the fateful meeting of Nov. 12-15, 1971 in Kansas City where the upper echelon of the VVAW discussed and voted on whether to assassinate seven U.S. Senators.

From the Sunday Oklahoman, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, November 7, 1971 by Bryce Patterson
The political power structure within the United States can and must change if the nation is to avoid violent efforts to seize power. John F. Kerry, a member of the executive committee of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War, said in Oklahoma City Saturday.
Meeting with reporters before speaking at the University of Oklahoma, Kerry said, "If it (the government) doesn't change we are asking for trouble. If it is not done, those who are talking about seizing it will have every right to go after it."
Kerry emphasized that he and those he represents are totally opposed to any such violence.
The 24 meg PDF file does show a photocopy of the article in question. However, I do not have a Lexis-Nexis account to further confirm this, but if any of my readers do, please pass it along. If this is accurate, it is truly a staggering find.
