Kerry rejected this narrative...

Jeez, did he have his lucky hat on?
Rejected this narrative?
I guess it all depends on the meaning of is...
Rejecting the narrative, isn’t that what the

"I was personally involved in the effort to retain him.

"The memory of sitting in a little rubber dinghy off Karg Island on Christmas Eve of 2006 waiting to row whats-his-name to the safety of the USS R. Buckminster Fuller because of the unlawful actions of George W. Bush is seared -- seared -- into my memory."

A little advice for the Levinson family; don’t hold your collective breaths waiting for The John Kerry to facilitate the safe return of your loved one.
