Democratic Sen. John Kerry ridiculed Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist for trying to clarify his comment on bringing "people who call themselves Taliban" into the Afghanistan government.
"They're not clarifying. He did another Terri Schiavo diagnosis from a one-hour tape," Kerry, the party's 2004 presidential nominee, said Wednesday of the Tennessee Republican.
On Monday, Frist said the war against Taliban guerrillas can never be won militarily and that he favored bringing "people who call themselves Taliban" into the government.
The remarks drew immediate criticism from Democrats. They argued Frist was waving the white flag of surrender to the Taliban, who harbored the al-Qaida organization blamed for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
A Frist spokeswoman later said the senator believes Afghan tribesmen at risk of being lost to the Taliban should be brought into the government, not Taliban fighters themselves.

Frist went brain dead.
But Kerry - is this a flip - or is it a flop?
"Frist went brain dead."
Worse, I'd bet he was thinking about the Sunni minority political parties in Iraq, not Afghanistan.
No, Frist was badly misquoted. He never suggested bringing the Taliban into the government.
He only said that ordinary people who had formerly supported the Taliban should be persuaded to support the current government.
Would it have helped if he just called Kerry an "Al-Qeada-crat"????
Watching Kerry accuse someone of waving the surrender flag is hysterically funny. After all this is Hanoi John , Cut and run man from the word go. French John, the man who met with the Viet Cong in France to discuss surrender.
Kerry is and always be a first class horses a$$.
Just call ol' Mister Flip-Flop what he is: a Dhimmicrat.
Added keyword chutzpah.
I bet Kerry was for the Taliban before he was against them.
The man is a total jackass.
Maybe he is hung like one. Something must have attracted Ther-ray-sa.
Frist was misquoted by the RAT media, and Kerry
is about 2 days behind the curve.
I cannot believe that rat-bastard Kerry brought up the name of Terri Schiavo, the poor woman who was cruelly murdered by the twisted Left in our country.
