Kennedy: Kerry’s Actions Prove Iraq is Bush’s Vietnam By Scott Ott
In a major policy address at the Brookings Institution today Senator Edward M. Kennedy said that Democrat presidential candidate John Forbes Kerry’s actions prove that “Iraq is George Bush’s Vietnam.”
“The parallels between Vietnam and Iraq are stunning when seen through the actions of one man who lived through both eras,” said Mr. Kennedy. “Thirty-some years ago John Kerry fought in Vietnam, then later protested U.S. involvement in Vietnam. In October 2002, John Kerry voted to support war against Iraq, then later protested U.S. involvement in Iraq. Clearly, Kerry’s actions and public statements demonstrate that Iraq has become a quagmire for Bush.”
White House spokesman Scott McClellan responded to Mr. Kennedy’s remarks by saying, “Ted Kennedy is John Kerry’s Chappaquiddick.”
