If Kerry the Traitor had been "cheered", the liberal media would have plenty of photos. I have not seen one that shows the cheering troops.

It's a misunderstanding of the "J-uh" and "Ch-uh" sound.

LOL ..after what he said during the election..wrong war, wrong place, wrong time, the soldiers not turning their back on him according to the press must mean "warmth"

no they probably announced him, the troops, out of respect because they are spectacular Americans (they would have to be to clap for this idiot!!) gave polite applause, but that is like a standing ovation or riot after Ohio State knocks off Michigan to the <font size=7)CR(/font size=7)AP

Trust me. Having been involved in those Dog and Pony shows, the troops THERE were TOLD to go. When Klintoon came to Okinawa, we HAD to go to the theater and you could hear crickets NOT clapping.

and how come AFP has this part

http://www.sierratimes.com/rss/newswire.php?article=/afp/20050106/pl_afp/iraquskerry&time=1105022791&feed=iraq

"Kerry also asked soldiers what he should tell Congress about the war in Iraq and was told that "the good work that they are doing is not getting reported in the United States."

but the SFgate reporter does not?

liberals create their own "facts". they create a "fact" by telling a lie; then they repeat it time and again until others take it as "fact" without question. one of the prime examples is their lie about President Bush's intelligence. Liberals continue to spout that lie, even well after real facts prove it's a lie. It's the same old adage,

don't confuse liberals with facts, when a lie is better.

I contacted the readers representative at the San Francisco Chronicle about the misleading/false headline on the article. He acknowledged it was incorrect, and was contacting the copy desk. -- If you wish to also contact the readers rep, POLITELY, his email is readerrep@sfchronicle.com

While there are Liberals in the military, they are by far the minority. The few in existence could have been herded to meet with him but The photos released do not indicate cheering. Caption to one has the troops registering a complaint with the Senator about good news never being told about Iraq.

I demand this person PROVE the claim cheering occured.

I read this article twice, and nowhere does it say he was cheered!

The reporter was cheering.

Get used to it. In a few weeks he will be referred to as "John Kerry, The Actual President Elect" in all the headlines.

The headline is misleading. It was just a photo op with Massachusetts National Guard solders. Nothing to get excited about. It was just a photo-op and sound bites for his buddies in the liberal press.

Gotta parse it right:

When Kerry arrived in Baghdad, he was a little depressed, thinking about his failed presidential ambitions. Then, he made a speech which, in his opinion, was a real barn-burner that really stuck it to that poopy-head George Bush. This made Kerry feel better, even cheerful. When a reporter asked him how he had enjoyed trip, Kerry said "I was cheered in Baghdad."

Thank you.

Amazing. Someone actually believed they could convince people Kerry could generate passionate cheers among the majority of the military, which is what they hoped to accomplish.

"Baghdad -- Sen. John Kerry, whose seemingly shifting positions on the U.S. war in Iraq plagued him throughout his presidential campaign, came to this war- torn capital Wednesday to see for himself whether the country was moving toward stability or deeper into chaos."

WHO does he think he is???? Hasn't anyone told him he was NOT elected President and nothing he says will be believed whether good or bad? Buffoon alert!

Most sections ask for volunteers first. When nobody does, some hold drawings. The losers have to go.

Less than 30% of soldiers in Iraq have voted for him. I am sure they can fill a room with these few soldiers that supported him. This not a big deal as the San Francisco newspaper is trying to make it.

Even if you saw a photo of troops cheering, don't believe it unless corroborated by video that proves no trooper was off to the side making the "L"oser sign out of view of the still shot!

Small group = 2 reporters and 2 stooges from the U.N.? HA!

"But we are at war, and I think you can't really make all the judgments that you need to make without digging in."

Did Kerry not have a "plan" for Iraq during the campaign? Apparantly, whatever that plan was (go to his website), it was done without "digging in."
