  •  And technically.. (none)
    ..Kerry never said there was a "global test" for out foreign policy.
    •  Here's the quote (none)
      No need to make calls, here's the full quote:

      "KERRY: The president always has the right, and always has had the right, for preemptive strike. That was a great doctrine throughout the Cold War. And it was always one of the things we argued about with respect to arms control.

      No president, though all of American history, has ever ceded, and nor would I, the right to preempt in any way necessary to protect the United States of America.

      But if and when you do it, Jim, you have to do it in a way that passes the test, that passes the global test where your countrymen, your people understand fully why you're doing what you're doing and you can prove to the world that you did it for legitimate reasons. "

      •  Riiiiight. (none)
        I guess you don't see the irony.  Cheney actually said what he said, but you say "technically" he didn't say it.

        Well technically, Kerry didn't say what he said either.  Perhaps they both meant something else and mispoke, but Kerry made sure you knew what he meant before his time was up, didn't he?

        What does Cheney mean?  He left it at exactly what you'd think he meant, despite your spin.
