Soldiers Greet Kerry Warmly In Iraq

by Steve

Following up on a good point from commenter mikem in the thread below, in my rush to express my latest exasperation with Kerry, I overlooked that not only was he in Iraq today, but he was greeted warmly by our soldiers and the locals.

Kerry, who repeatedly charged during the presidential campaign that President Bush had botched the war effort, was greeted warmly by U.S. soldiers in Baghdad.

U.S. soldiers approached Kerry inside the restaurant of the Rashid Hotel, asking him to pose for photographs and sign T-shirts. The star-struck restaurant manager insisted on serving Kerry the restaurant's specialty, a plate of grilled chicken and lamb.

Kerry was scheduled to fly on a C-130 military transport plane today to visit troops in Fallujah and Mosul.

Fallujah and Mosul? That takes some guts, since our pansy-assed president would never venture outside of Baghdad if he were over there handing out fake Turkey.
