John Kerry, war criminal?
John Kerry comes clean:
"I personally didn't see personal atrocities in the sense I saw somebody cut a head off or something like that," Kerry said. "However, I did take part in free-fire zones, I did take part in harassment and interdiction fire, I did take part in search-and-destroy missions in which the houses of noncombatants were burned to the ground. And all of these acts, I find out later on, are contrary to the Hague and Geneva conventions and to the laws of warfare. So in that sense, anybody who took part in those, if you carry out the application of the Nuremberg Principles, is in fact guilty."
And so in that sense, if we carry out the application of the Nuremberg Principles, John Kerry is guilty of war crimes.
Of course, this story is not in the same league as Bush's dental records from 1972.
But shouldn't it warrant at least a news story?
Anyway, in a few months, it could be a campaign commercial. Bush's people are probably splicing the tape as we speak.
(A nice pick up from Q and O.....)
