Internation Man Of Mystery!!!
KERRY CLAIMS TO KNOW OF SECRET PRE-WAR DEAL . . .
April 2, 2003: Claims He Spoke To Number Of Foreign Leaders But Doesn’t Name Names.
“In remarks in the basement of the Peterborough Public
Library Kerry … said ‘I talked to leaders of a number of countries … that told me they lost all confidence in the administration.’” (James Pindell,
“Kerry: $8 Million In The Bank,” PoliticsNH.com Website, www.politicsnh.com, Accessed 4/3/03)
October 20, 2003: Claims Bush Administration Refused To Work With France And Russia But Doesn’t Offer Specifics. “I talked to [UN Secretary-General]
Kofi Annan the Sunday before the president decided to go to war. And I knew at that moment in time that the Russians and the French were prepared to,
in fact, make a further offer.” (MSNBC’s “Hardball,” 10/20/03)
October 21, 2003: Says I’ll Tell You Later. “‘I have it on the highest authority’ that the French and Russians were prepared to make an offer at the
UN, but were rebuffed by American officials intent on going to war, Kerry said. ‘I’m going to talk about it more publicly at a later time.’ [Kerry]
would not disclose details of the position the countries, which opposed the US-led military offensive, were prepared to take or identify the source of
the information.” (Patrick Healy, “Kerry Won’t Elaborate On Missed Deal,” The Boston Globe, 10/22/03)
SO SECRET, ONLY HE KNOWS?
EVEN FRENCH AND RUSSIANS ARE BEFUDDLED
October 23, 2003: Assertions Disputed By France And Russia. “The French and Russian ambassadors to the UN, in separate interviews Thursday, said
they knew nothing about any private offers made by their governments to the US on the eve of the war. The envoys told the Globe that the only
concession made was a public proposal to extend weapons inspections in Iraq by four months before military action could begin. … Kerry questioned
whether the two ambassadors were fully apprised of the proposals that top officials in Paris and Moscow were prepared to discuss, however.” (Patrick
Healy, “Kerry Presses Assault On Bush,” The Boston Globe, 10/25/03)
