Kerry: Bush Allowed Bin Laden To Escape

Campaigning today in Nevada, John Kerry stated that the President allowed Bin Laden to escape from Tora Bora:

"Can you imagine trusting them when you have your 10th Mountain Division, the United States Marine Corps, when you had all the power and ability of the best-trained military in the world?" Kerry told a rally at the University of Nevada-Reno. "I would have used our military and we would have gone after and captured or killed Osama bin Laden. That's tough."

His statement is as childish as it is misleading. More than that however, it is the sound of a desperate candidate willing to say anything to get a vote.

There is not need to rebut his statement, General Tommy Franks, who commanded the efforts at Tora Bora has already done so.
