Cut and run Kerry: Open mouth insert foot

As President Bush was meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in Baghdad, al-Kerry was at home making jokes and preaching, "Cut and Run" at the gathering of left wing liberals. At the annual gathering, Take Back America, Kerry said that it was right to dissent from a war in 1971 (Viet Nam) that was wrong and could not be won. And now, in 2006, it is both a right and an obligation for Americans to stand up to a president who is wrong today. Kerry said that he had made a mistake by voting to authorize the president to use military force in Iraq, and he called for a "hard and fast deadline" for troop withdrawal. Kerry compared Iraq to Vietnam and called both military actions " the two most failed foreign policy choices" in the nation's history.

Kerry was also busy introducing additions to Senate Bill 2766 with the an addition, Section 1084:

Excerpts proposed by Kerry to S.2766 introduced in the United States Senate on June 12, 2006
Purpose: To require the withdrawal of United States Armed Forces from Iraq and urge the convening of an Iraq summit.




(1) SCHEDULE FOR WITHDRAWAL. -- The President shall reach an agreement as soon as possible with the Government Iraq on a schedule for the withdrawal of United States combat troops from Iraq by December 31, 2006, leaving only forces that are critical to completing the mission of standing up Iraqi security forces.

(2) CONSULTATION WITH CONGRESS REQUIRED. -- The President shall consult with Congress regarding such schedule and shall present such withdrawal agreement to Congress immediately upon the completion of the agreement.

(b) IRAQ SUMMIT. -- The President should convene a summit as soon as possible that includes the leaders of the Government of Iraq, leaders of the governments of each country bordering Iraq, representatives of the Arab League, the Secretary General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization representatives of the European Union, and leaders of the governments of each permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, for the purpose of reaching a comprehensive political agreement for Iraq that addresses fundamental issues including federalism, oil revenues, the militias, security guarantees, reconstruction, economic assistance, and border security.


John Kerry's Speech to the Campaign for America’s Future - John Kerry (Campaign for America's Future) June 13, 2006 - The patriotic obligation to speak out becomes even more urgent when so-called leaders refuse to debate their policies or disclose the full facts; and even more urgent, when they seek perversely to use their own military blunders to deflect doubts and to answer their own failures with more of the same.

EXCERPTS OF JOHN KERRY’S AMENDMENT ON IRAQ Purpose: To require the withdrawal of United States Armed Forces from Iraq and urge the convening of an Iraq summit.

These are the facts. I'll let you be the judge.
