Same Constituent. Same Flaky Senator.

John Kerry in a letter to a constituent, dated 22 January 1991:

“Thank you for contacting me to express your opposition … to the early use of military force by the US against Iraq. I share your concerns. On January 11, I voted in favor of a resolution that would have insisted that economic sanctions be given more time to work and against a resolution giving the president the immediate authority to go to war.”

John Kerry in a letter to the same constituent, dated 31 January 1991:

“Thank you very much for contacting me to express your support for the actions of President Bush in response to the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. From the outset of the invasion, I have strongly and unequivocally supported President Bush’s response to the crisis and the policy goals he has established with our military deployment in the Persian Gulf.”

Meet John Kerry, a Man of Conviction.

Never let it be said that Secretary General Kofi Annan was not a man of bravery and conviction:

The United Nations will send a team to Iraq to determine whether elections should be held once the U.S.-led coalition authority can guarantee the mission’s safety, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Tuesday.

Way to hide behind U.S. skirts, Kofi.

Perhaps there is something to the Roe Effect after all.
