Newsflash: Kerry Waffles
It seems one of Mr. Kerry's constituents, Walter Carter, wrote to his senator urging support for the eviction of Saddam from Kuwait. He received a letter dated 1/22/01 from stating:
"Thank you for contacting me to express your opposition ... to the early use of military force by the US against Iraq. I share your concerns. On January 11, I voted in favor of a resolution that would have insisted that economic sanctions be given more time to work and against a resolution giving the president the immediate authority to go to war."Okay, fair enough. But wait! Another letter, dated 1/31/01 soon arrived:
"Thank you very much for contacting me to express your support for the actions of President Bush in response to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. From the outset of the invasion, I have strongly and unequivocally supported President Bush's response to the crisis and the policy goals he has established with our military deployment in the Persian Gulf."Boy, it's going to be fun to see this guy squirm when this sort of nonsense comes out. Oh, and the official explanation for the contradiction? Computer Error!
