John Kerry said what? My mind is officially made up.

Please, please tell me John Kerry did not say that Moqtada al-Sadr was a "LEGITIMATE" voice in Iraq.................

Anyone listen to NPR? Did he really say it? Am I going insane, but did the Democratic Candidate for President just say that a man who has been charged by the recognized Iraqi court system as a MURDERER of another muslim cleric was "LEGITIMATE"? Did he just say that the man who has called upon Iraqi's to kill Americans say that this 30-year old who claims that 9/11 was a "Gift from GOD" is "Legitimate"?


I give up! I sincerely give up. Who the is advising him? Does huis campaign read the ing news? It is not that hard to keep up with it....go to GOOGLE NEWS. Does he have a freaking policy advisor or someone on the campaign that follows this stuff?


I am sorry....there is not a chance in the world that I can vote for this man. NO WAY.

Well, I just heard it from the horses mouth. He did say it....then thought better of it and said let me take back the word legitimate. I can just picture the aid sitting next to him FREAKING out saying NO NO NO....

I am scratching my head. Does he have a clue about Sadr and the newspaper that was shut down?

The article in that blog fails to mention that he attempted to "take back the word legitimate".

People aside...you can start a thread to discuss their points or their humor.

This is bothersome. I listened to it on the radio....I heard the clip. Characterizing SADR as legitimate is so wrong.

Ok yes his wording I won't agree with but do you honestly, as they put it, think Kerry is defending this man's behaviour?

This man has been in the press for a month. He has called for the killing of Americans. He has killed one of the heads of his religion, and reportedly attempted to kill the one leader who has called on the Shiaa's to remain peaceful. He started his own government during the fall of Saddam.

If you want to be President, fine, but in my mind it is 100% clear that he is NOT up to date. This is a foolish choice of words. Absolutely it is clear in my mind, that he is not surrounding himself with people who are up to date on world events. If I, can go to websites like the CFR site and educate myself on the topics surrounding Iraq, you would think that he would have a policy advisor preparing him for the "tough "questions.

Sadr is responsible for dead Americans and supposedly (NOTE I AM NOT CERTAIN OF THE VALIDITY OF THIS) they are now holding Americans as POWs under his instructions.

Dread.

I went to the NPR site and listened to the interview.

The extended interview has the quote you mention.


it can be found here.


in the same breath, he says he is NOT legitimate.



W mis-speaks almost everytime he opens his mouth.


I would encouage everyone to listen to the interview.


Can you imagine W giving an eighteen minute interview, taking tough questions. Now that would be really good listening.

I will go listen when I am more awake...but I NEVER heard him say he is not legitimate.

I did say he wanted to take it back. I can picture his advisor waving franticly NO NO NO as it was a phone interview if I am not mistaken.

As long as Dick Cheney is by his side and he doesn't have to say anything publically, he's a happy camper.

Me either--and my local newspaper is definitely conservative, they endorsed Bush in 2000 and will do it again. It's not the "liberal media" around here.

Newspapers publish only a fraction of what is out there.

The LA Times is very selective in how it presents the news.

So is my paper. They do *not* like Kerry. But it's also very sensationalist. The headlines were about the mosque getting hit in Iraq, complete with a gory picture of killings. Two natives of Alabama were killed in Iraq yesterday. One of them was from my mother's home town, Opelika, the town right next to Auburn. I'm starting to hear complaints like "I'm afraid to pick up the paper now".
