Here's that quote from John Kerry to Bob Edwards on NPR yesterday:
Edwards: "President Bush says Sadr's defiance can't stand. What should the U.S. do?"
Kerry: "Well, ahh, huh, it's interesting to hear that, when they shut the newspaper that belongs to a legitimate voice in Iraq, and, well, let me change the term legitimate --when they shut a newspaper that belongs to a voice, because he has clearly taken on a far more radical tone in recent days, and aligned himself with both Hamas and Hezbollah, which is a sort of terrorist alignment, so it creates its own set of needs in order to deal with the possible future spread of terrorism. But at the same time, if it's unaccompanied by a broader set of moves to try and broaden our own base in Iraq, um, I just think it asks for great difficulties."
What a fucking dolt! Kerry's first instinct is to criticize the CPA for shutting down a newspaper that was explicitly instructing terrorists to go and kill Americans. He thinks that's a "legitimate voice"? Disgusting! His whole explanation is crap from start to finish.
And, now, this "legitimate voice" is riffing off of Turd Kennedy's analogy of Viet Nam to Iraq? Sympathizers. They're nothing but sympathizers. And the terrorists are listening to you, too, Senators. Maybe they're also talking to you. Hmmm. Was Muqtada al-Sadr one of the foreign leaders pulling for you in private, Senator Flip-Flop?
