FALSE CLAIM #2: Kerry labeled all veterans war criminals

FALSE CLAIM #3: Kerry's actions worsened the POWs' treatment when under interrogation
FALSE CLAIM #4: The Winter Soldier Investigation has been discredited: "those guys he was with were frauds"

FALSE CLAIM #5: Kerry had secret meeting with North Vietnamese in Paris
