Kerry Fires Back at Cheney & Bush on Iraq

In an escalating battle of words, ideas and the future of American Forign Policy in Iraq, John Kerry slammed Vice President Cheney for his recent comments on Iraq critics. As Kerry bluntly states, Cheney has about as much credibility as a fox in a hen house on the issue of Iraq. Cheney was the war's biggest cheerleader repeatedly scaring the public with talk of mushroom clouds, when the facts did not support his statements. Hey Dick, that's called Lying. Spinning it now still makes you a liar. - IFK Editor

"It is hard to name a government official with less credibility on Iraq than Vice President Cheney. The Vice President continues to mislead America about how we got into Iraq and what must be done to complete the still unaccomplished mission.

"My commitment to our country has been steadfast from the day I signed up to serve in the Navy through my service as a United States Senator fighting for our troops and our national security. Too often when it's been time to tell the truth to the American people, Vice President Cheney has had other priorities.

"While the Vice President engages in the politics of fear and smear, Americans want their government to honor the memory of the more than 2,000 brave Americans lost in Iraq, and they have not forgotten that Osama bin Laden remains on the loose. If the Bush White House cared as much about our troops as they do about their plummeting political fortunes, they would at last offer a clear strategy for success in Iraq and work to bring home 20,000 troops after the successful Iraqi elections. Then, and only then, would they be even beginning to offer leadership equal to our soldiers' sacrifice."
