The junior senator* from Massachusetts once again helps to inform the debate.
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) believes that on September 11 “we were basically at peace.”
Asked to clarify his remarks, specifically asking about the attacks on the U.S.S. Cole during Barack Obama campaign conference call, Kerry said, “well, we hadn’t declared war,” The Hill’s Sam Youngman reports.
In much the same way that we were basically at peace on 7 December, 1941.
In a way, this all makes a kind of sense: Hollywood is for pretty people who aren’t terribly clever. Washington is Hollywood for ugly people.
