The Anti-War Kerry

Leaving aside the fact the Senator Kerry has now changed his position on the war in Iraq more times that anyone can count, I’ll take is statement the other day that he now opposes the war in Iraq as the “wrong war, at the wrong time” at face value. What can we expect from a commander-in-chief who opposes the war in Iraq?

Perhaps a look back at his opposition to the Vietnam War, which Kerry proudly referred to earlier in the week, would be instructive. From a speech John Kerry gave to a group at the YMCA in Philadelphia on June 14, 1971, as reported by the FBI:

On June 29, 1971, [BLACKED OUT SECURITY EDIT] advised that JOHN KERRY of the National Office of the VVAW, spoke at the YMCA, Philadelphia, on June 14, 1971. In this talk he stated that HO CHI MINH is the GEORGE WASHINGTON of Viet-nam. Ho studied the United States Constitution and wants to install the same provisions into the Government of Vietnam. KERRY criticized United States activities in Vietnam, saying we are destroying villages, cities, crops, and the people there and these activities must be stopped.

Give comfort and aid to the enemy, then cut and run. That was his playbook then, what’s to say it won’t be again?
