The Washington Times – John Kerry Story

Mike Krempasky of RedState.org sends word that the story you’ve been waiting for in the Washington Times was written by author and investigative journalist Joel Mowbray. Joel will also be on Fox & Friends tomorrow morning to talk about the story. (7:30EST). Joel will also be blogging throughout the week on RedState.org, the editors of which gave Joel the lead in the first place and helped him along the way.

Here’s the scoop:

Kerry Lied About Meeting With The United Nations Security Council

This was one of the conspiracy theory stories mentioned previously at RedState (Laguana Dave nailed it). From a speech at the Council on Foriegn Relations in Decemver 2003.

“Thanks to some friends in New York, I was invited to come up and meet with the Security Council in the week prior to the vote, and I wanted to do that, because I valued my vote. And I wanted to know what the real readiness and willingness of our partners was to take this seriously.

So I sat with the French and British, Germans, with the entire Security Council, and we spent a couple of hours talking about what they saw as the path to a united front in order to be able to deal with Saddam Hussein.
And from the second presidential debate via The Daily Recycler.

Daily Kos has more on the story, and as one of the conservative bloggers I must say I’m underwhelmed at this juncture as well. It rings of the “imaginary foreign leaders” flap. With the media in his corner on matters like this, Kerry is like Teflon. As Jim Hines points out in the comments: “The guy collaborated with the enemy during the Vietnam war while still an enlisted Naval officer. If that doesn’t disqualify him from being president than I don’t know what would.”

Update: Here’s the story from the Washington Times – Security Council members deny meeting Kerry

U.N. ambassadors from several nations are disputing assertions by Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry that he met for hours with all members of the U.N. Security Council just a week before voting in October 2002 to authorize the use of force in Iraq.

An investigation by The Washington Times reveals that while the candidate did talk for an unspecified period to at least a few members of the panel, no such meeting, as described by Mr. Kerry on a number of occasions over the past year, ever occurred.

[More]Update 2: NZ Bear says that it’s precisely because we expect that John Kerry will do or say anything to win that we SHOULD CARE that he was caught lying.

Update 3: For those of you feeling a bit let down after all the hype, here’s two more stories that should light a fire under you.

  1. Kerry refuses interview with Bob Woodward about what he would have done at certain key points on Iraq.

  2. John Kerry was given money by an Albanian terrorist organization known as the Kosovo Liberation Army.
