John Kerry Touts Al Qaida Successes
In quotes sure to bring delight to Osama bin Laden and his followers, Sen. John Kerry said Sunday that the reason the U.S. homeland hasn't been attacked by al Qaida since 9/11 is because the terror group is having so much success against U.S. forces in Iraq.
"Many people surmise that one of the reasons we haven't been attacked here, is because they are being so successful at doing what they need to do to attack us in Iraq and elsewhere," the failed presidential candidate told ABC's "This Week."
Kerry was responding to comments Friday by chief White House advisor Karl Rove, who credited President Bush with "protecting America against attacks."
"He is winning the war against terrorism, promoting liberty in regions of the world that have never known it," Rove told a Republican gathering in Washington, D.C.
Rove complained that Democrats like Kerry still had "a pre-9/11 worldview."
On Thursday, bin Laden released an audiotaped message that seemed to echo comments by Bush administration critics, including Sen. Kerry.
Asked whether bin Laden had expressed "almost the same" sentiments that Kerry had in the past, "CBS Evening News" anchorman Bob Schieffer told WABC Radio's Mark Simone: "Well, he did. That's exactly right.

isn't he the guy who served in Vietnam during the Vietnam War?
Yes, he served in the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army.
No. He's the guy that went to Vietnam, lied to collect as many medals as fast as he could, then came back home to see how far he could throw them away!
These people dare call themselves patriots, yet openly support the enemies of America? God help us all if they ever regain power.
He's been smokin' too much weed and drinkin' too much ketchup.
Seems John's true color (red) is coming out for the whole world to see. What a putz!
...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate...the failed presidential candidate... the failed presidential candidate...
I could go on, but I won't. ;)
Kerry is spinning the obvious here. The Flypaper Strategy was supposed to occupy Al Qaeda in Iraq and give Al Qaeda an excuse to have a truce with America on US soil. The strategy calls for the enemy to consistently perceive they have a chance in Iraq (and nowhere else) until well beyond the point at which they have spent most of their resources and good will with the Sunni arab world...and still lose in Iraq.
Kerry is stating the obvious, but as with the Vietnam War, he is spinning it as a "failure" on our part when it is actually a clever victory on our part.
Remember that the main constituency of the Democrats are the American poor and uneducated and the "easily swayed".
With Vietnam, turning China in 1972 was almost the be-all and end-all of American strategic foreign policy in Southeast Asia. It might have been nice to keep Cam Ranh Bay out of Soviet hands after that point, but it wasn't a strategic loss 3 years later when our liberals stabbed us and our allies in the back regarding SE Asia.
But guys like Kerry can just simplisticly point to 58,500 war dead and say "it was all a mistake" and the common brain dead citizen would think "I guess that about sums it up."
Kerry, Dean, and Murtha have been drinking from the same Kool-Aid batch...
Don't worry, next week he'll say we're winning in Iraq.
More deep thoughts from Yale's most formidable D-student.
Or vice versa.
Even if this statement wasn`t so profoundly stupid in its own regards (message to Kerry,we killed some of the top bad guys last week,we are winning as disappointing as that is to you),think about it.
Would Kerry rather have them attacking us here?
What a complete jackass.
Touting the achievements of another enemy of the U.S.of A. during the Viet Nam war Kerry told a U.S. Senate committee that U.S. forces are worse than the "reds." Yes, Mr. Kerry served and deserved our respect -- right up until he declared his loyalties to the enemy.
Today war is here on our shores. Isn't it time to start thinking about sedition and treason laws?
(What was special about W.W.II? Was it socialist Hitler? No. Our forces were helping defend the left's Uncle Joe's workers' paradise.)
