John Kerry Channels Howard Dean

John Kerry has now officially adopted the Howard Dean position on the War in Iraq. He stated today that he would not have deposed Saddam Hussein had he been president and that we are not safer today as a result of the toppling of one of the worlds most brutal dictators. It is too difficult a task to retrace all of the positions John Kerry has taken on the War in Iraq. It is helpful and important at this point ot remember that he voted for the War, voted against the funding of the war, stated just a few weeks ago that he would have voted for the war knowing everything he knows now, and today he did a complete reverse with his statement that he would not have toppled Hussein.

In his speech today at NYU, John Kerry stated:

"Saddam Hussein was a brutal dictator who deserves his own special place in hell," he added. "But that was not, in itself, a reason to go to war. The satisfaction we take in his downfall does not hide this fact: We have traded a dictator for a chaos that has left America less secure."

So Senator Kerry believes the war in Iraq and the toppling of Saddam Hussein has made America "less secure". Really? This is what John Kerry said on CNN's "Capital Gang" on December 20, 2003:

"Those who doubted whether Iraq or the world would be better off without Saddam Hussein and those who believe today that we are not safer with his capture don't have the judgment to be president or the credibility to be elected president."

Actually, Senator Kerry, I agree.
