John Kerry Advocates Terrorism Against Iraqi Civilians

In an interview with Bob Schieffer on Face the Nation, Senator John Kerry (Mass, D) was quoted as saying that the Iraqi soldiers the American forces are training in Iraq should be terrorizing the local population.

JOHN KERRY: I don't agree with that. But I think what we need to do is recognize what we all agree on, which is, you've got to begin to set benchmarks for accomplishment; you've got to begin to transfer authority to the Iraqis, and there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the -- of -- of -- of -- historical customs, religious customs, whether you like it or not. Iraqis should be doing that.
(Emphasis mine)

There you have it. Not only is John Kerry saying that American troops are terrorizing Iraqi citizens, (and he's wrong on that) but he's saying that it is something the new Iraqi Army should be doing. I guess he really does think that things were better under Saddam when this kind of thing was common place....

Check out Rush's take on the interview. I was listening at work, and started laughing right before he cut off the playback and said the same thing about Kerry.

It should be interesting to see what Kerry's spin masters try to do with this... if what he actually said gets analyzed in the same way a Republican Senator's words would.
