Being a Senator means being able to have it both ways: From James' Taranto's "Best of the Web Today" over at OpinionJournal.com, we have these gems from the same speech by Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry.
- "When they [the Bush administration] could have listened to General Shinseki and put in enough troops to maintain order, they chose not to. They were wrong."
- "General George Casey, our top military commander in Iraq, recently told Congress that our large military presence 'feeds the notion of occupation' and 'extends the amount of time that it will take for Iraqi security forces to become self-reliant.' . . . It is essential to acknowledge that the insurgency will not be defeated unless our troop levels are drawn down."
John Kerry certainly knows how to take a stand on both sides of tough issues.
