GUEST,Claymore BS: John Kerry (41) RE: BS: John Kerry 24 Jun 03


Rapaire, who posted at June 20th at 8:39 AM was wrong. To quote the Washington Post of May 25th (Page A4):

"But Kerry's vocal opposition to the war after his return from Vietnam left him open to criticism from political opponents, who portrayed him as an opportunist. This skepticism was further fueled in 1984, when the Wall Street Journal reported that during a 1971 anti-war protest in Washington, in which veterans symbolicaly tossed away their medals, Kerry dicarded only his ribbons, and someones elses medals - and kept his at home."

As for Kerry's comments about Bush, lets quote the front page of this Monday's Washington Times:

"Senate leaders from both parties heading an inquiry of intelligence information on Iraq yesterday repudiated Sen. John Kerry's accusation that the Bush administration misled the country into war, and accused him of political posturing.
    Sen. Pat Roberts, Kansas Republican and chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV, West Virginia Democrat and ranking committee member, dismissed the comments as political while appearing on "Fox News Sunday."
    "The senator is running for president," Mr. Rockefeller said.
    "And I think that Pat Roberts and I make a distinction between people who are running for president and therefore need to capture attention, and what we on the Intelligence Committee have to do, which is to get the facts and to get the intelligence, the counterintelligence and then try and decide," Mr. Rockefeller said."

(Ain't facts a bitch...)
