I have nothing but admiration for Kerik's intelligence, discipline, kind nature, courage and determination. He was an excellent police commissioner in NY and he did an exceptional job in helping to put together the structure of the new Iraqi police force. He left behind people who admire and respect him in Iraq, and came home to many people feel the same way.
Bernard Kerik is a hero who understands the nature of our enemy and continued making America and the world safer, ignored by the news media and virtually forgotten many Americans when he left the NYPD when Rudy left office. He didn't have to do anything spectacular in Iraq : he's a hero for committing himself to do an important job and completing his task
I hope he knows that there are still many, many Americans who remember 9/11/01 and it's aftermath very well. I raise my mug of leukwarn coffee to him in honor of all he has done for the people of New york and Iraq. CHEERS!
