This is what David Brooks has to say in today's New York Times:
Back in December 2001, when bin Laden was apparently hiding in Tora Bora, Kerry supported the strategy of using Afghans to hunt him down. He told Larry King that our strategy "is having its impact, and it is the best way to protect our troops and sort of minimalize the proximity, if you will. I think we have been doing this pretty effectively, and we should continue to do it that way."This is why Lurch cannot be trusted. He is a liar and a hypocrite. He is also Osama bin Laden's choice for the White House.
But then the political wind shifted, and Kerry recalculated. Now Kerry calls the strategy he supported "outsourcing." When we rely on allies everywhere else around the world, that's multilateral cooperation, but when Bush does it in Afghanistan, it's "outsourcing." In Iraq, Kerry supports using local troops to chase insurgents, but in Afghanistan he is in post hoc opposition.
Is our country so decadent and blind that we would allow this murderous son of a bitch to influence our elections like the al-Qaedists did in Spain? Kerry's election would be a disaster. Muslim terrorists the world over would be dancing in the streets. At last, they'd cry, one of ours is in power again.
