Kennedy: CIA Will Confirm That Kerry Met With Foreign Leaders
Newsmax ^ | 3/21/04

Posted on 03/21/2004 2:28:55 PM PST by areafiftyone

efending Sen. John Kerry against charges he fabricated claims of meetings with foreign leaders who offered their political support, Sen. Ted Kennedy said Sunday that the Central Intelligence Agency will verify Kerry's account.

Asked to identify the leaders Kerry met with, Kennedy told NBC's "Meet the Press": "The CIA knows it. They work for the president. They can give him the names of all of those countries."

Kennedy complained that the White House still hasn't identified the members of Vice President Dick Cheney's Energy Task Force or the White House official who leaked the name of CIA employee Valerie Plame.

But when pressed on Kerry's alleged meetings with foreign leaders, Kennedy reiterated the claim that the CIA will back his account up.

"He's obviously - he's met leaders over a period of time," he told "Meet the Press." "And anyone - the CIA knows who they - if the White House is really interested in those leaders, they control the CIA, the CIA gives them those lists."

I hope they confirm it. It makes Kerry look more and more like he's unAmerican.

This is the sort of foot-in-mouth incident that goes hand-in-hand with a pitcher of Bloody Marys. :D

IRA guy: 'You've got to win this. You've got to beat this guy. We need a new policy'

Democrat: 'Sure. Did you and your team register as Democrats yet in both New York, Massachusetts, Florida, and other states?'


Sandinista guy: 'You've got to win this. You've got to beat this guy. We need a new policy'

Democrat: 'Sure. Don't forget to register and have others register as a Democrats in at least five states'
