Kerry: Bush Allowed Bin Laden to Escape
By NEDRA PICKLER, Associated Press Writer
RENO, Nev. - Democratic Sen. John Kerry said Friday that Osama bin Laden would be in captivity or dead if Kerry had been president during the war against Afghanistan. Kerry accused President Bush of allowing bin Laden to escape by relying on Afghan warlords to try to hunt the al-Qaida chief down in the caves of Tora Bora in December 2001. "Can you imagine trusting them when you have your 10th Mountain Division, the United States Marine Corps, when you had all the power and ability of the best-trained military in the world?" Kerry told a rally at the University of Nevada-Reno. "I would have used our military and we would have gone after and captured or killed Osama bin Laden. That's tough."

In mid-December 2001, right in the middle of the battle of Tora Bora, Kerry supported the administration's strategy: "I think we have been smart. I think the administration leadership has done it well, and we are right on track." Kerry only cautioned against using too much force: "I am not for a prolonged bombing campaign," he said.

Ah, the politics of 20/20 hindsight, made more difficult by those nasty Neo-Cons, bloggers, search engines and cache systems! But what the hay, throw it out there, see if it sticks. We MUST advance le cause Kerry!
