Saturday, October 30, 2004The John Kerry of 2004 has called the war in Iraq a "grand distraction" from the fight against terror. Yet the John Kerry of 2001 would beg to differ.
Here's what Kerry had to say about Saddam Hussein in an interview two months after Sept. 11th -- and almost a year before the Bush Administration set its sights on Iraq:
I have no doubt, I've never had any doubt--and I've said this publicly--about our ability to be successful in Afghanistan. We are and we will be. The larger issue, John, is what happens afterwards. How do we now turn attention ultimately to Saddam Hussein? How do we deal with the larger Muslim world? What is our foreign policy going to be to drain the swamp of terrorism on a global basis?
