Oct. 25, 2004: Vietnamese communist officials repaid a 23-year-old debt to John Kerry for his anti-war activities when they removed a controversial picture of the 2004 presidential candidate from a war museum in Ho Chi Minh City that had been featured in "Unfit for Command," the best-seller challenging the senator's version of his military service and his antiwar activities.
An angry Vietnam vet who learned of the picture from "Unfit" traveled from Hawaii to Vietnam to see the evidence for himself. At the museum, he was told by the director the picture had been ordered removed a month before.
