Thirty-three years ago, fresh from combat in Vietnam, John O'Neill parted his hair neatly, put on his only suit, stared into a television camera and made it clear how much he detested John Kerry. Not Democrats. Not liberals. John Kerry. "This man," O'Neill said during a 1971 debate with Kerry on "The Dick Cavett Show," "has attempted the murder of the reputations of 2.5 million of us, including the 55,000 dead in Vietnam."

Some of those waging the nation's war on terrorism paused Friday to pay their respects to one of their own, John P. O'Neill, the former hard-charging FBI counter-terrorism chief who died in the World Trade Center Sept. 11 at the hands of the kind of terrorists he spent years investigating. In a service at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Roman Catholic Church, assistant FBI director Barry Mawn told more than 1,000 mourners that O'Neill was perhaps the best weapon the bureau ever had to fight terrorism.
