It's official. John Kerry is against the war in Iraq. He prefers Saddam Hussein sitting in his various palaces striving to sneak weapons materials past UN sanction restrictions (ha!), funding terrorists, murdering dissidents and bilking Iraqis with UN auspices in the Oil-for-Food program.
And your proof -- 60 Minutes interview.
This is what Kerry said, from the CBS story on the interview (the transcript seemingly is not online):
Is Kerry for or against the war in Iraq? "I think the president made a mistake in the way he took us to war," says Kerry. "I am against the war - the way the president went to war was wrong."
Of course, Kerry still stands by his vote in favor of the authorization to use force. Consistently inconsistent.
See here for John Podhoretz raking Kerry over the coals. Your excerpt:
. . . right now, the president [Kerry] most resembles is Richard Milhous Nixon — the very man he condemned in 1971 for not wanting to be "the first president to lose a war."
Nixon did become the first president to lose a war.
If John Kerry becomes president, he'll be the second.
