  • Kerry fails to back up foreign 'endorsements'

    Interesting

    According to travel records kept by the Secretary of the Senate, Mr. Kerry's last official trip abroad was in early 2002 when he visited the United Kingdom, Jordan, Egypt and Israel. The only other trip noted in Senate records since that time is an October 2002 domestic trip to Charleston, S.C., to appear on MSNBC's Hardball program.
    The Washington Times also scoured White House, State Department and other public records for all official trips made to the United States by foreign leaders since the start of last year. During more than 30 such trips, Mr. Kerry was out of town campaigning, at home or in the hospital for a prostate-cancer operation, according to his travel schedules from this year and last.
    The only instance found when Mr. Kerry was in the same town as a foreign leader was Sept. 24, when New Zealand Foreign Minister Philip Goff was in Washington meeting with State Department officials. On that day, according to his schedule, Mr. Kerry received the endorsement of the International Association of Fire Fighters in Washington.

        I don't think there is any doubt that Kerry is Assad's and Mubarak's kind of guy.
        And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

              I have a problem with the fact he says he met with them when he didn't.

                There is no doubt Kerry is the Hussein family's kind of guy.
                Asked what he would do differently in Iraq, Kerry said, "Right now, what I would do differently is, I mean, look, I'm not the president, and I didn't create this mess so I don't want to acknowledge a mistake that I haven't made."

                  Who said the intelligence reports on Kerry's travel habits are accurate?

                    Well, it could be that Kerry spoke with the leaders on the phone and considered that a "meeting", and the Republicans are insisting on a literal definition of meeting meaning "in the flesh".

                      Literal definitions, huh.

                        And now, meeting apparently...
                        I told my wife the same thing this morning.

                        Ok, so I'll talk meeting to mean on the phone.

                        So is he guilty of deception?

                          pgrote - I didn't follow your last post, because of a typo. Please clarify.
                          "Ok, so I'll talk meeting to mean on the phone. So is he guilty of deception?"

                          Here's what Kery said:
                          "I've met with foreign leaders who can't go out and say this publicly," he said. "But, boy, they look at you and say: 'You've got to win this. You've got to beat this guy. We need a new policy.' Things like that."

                          If Kerry talked to the leaders on the phone, I don't think he was being deceptive, although he was not clear. He should clarify what he meant.
