HE HAS MET THE ENEMY...:

Kerry would change war on terror (Stephen Dinan, April 19, 2004 , THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry said yesterday that he will treat the war on terror "primarily" as law-enforcement action even as he pledged to remain committed to Iraq and to personally plead for international help in policing and rebuilding that nation.

"In order to know who they are, where they are, what they're planning and be able to go get them before they get us, you need the best intelligence, best law-enforcement cooperation in the world," the Massachusetts senator said in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press." [...]

In other comments on the show yesterday, Mr. Kerry stood by his statements that he received endorsements from numerous foreign leaders and made light of his 1971 assertion of having committed "atrocities" while serving in Vietnam.

Mr. Racicot also criticized Mr. Kerry for saying he would consider voting against funding for the war effort in the future, as he did last year, depending on the circumstances.

"This conditional support for the troops John Kerry voted to send to Iraq in the first place demonstrates a disturbing lack of judgment," Mr. Racicot said.


Someone needs to lock him in with a cask of amantillado until Election Day because every time he speaks he loses votes.

Don't you mean into, rather than with?

Wasn't Fortunato walled up forever when he went down for that cask of amantillado?

Kerry's more like Unfortunado ... or maybe Importunado.

Unimportunado?

Or how about Marriedafortunato? And since that story takes place in France, he should be entirely familiar with it.

At his recent press conference when Bush was asked what mistakes he had made he should have said "The mistake I made prior to 911 was treating terrorism as a law enforcement matter."
