A Washington Post story on John Kerry provides the following nugget that, having been picked up by Rush Limbaugh, may turn out to be a bombshell:
Kerry’s belief in working with allies runs so deep that he has maintained that the loss of American life can be better justified if it occurs in the course of a mission with international support. In 1994, discussing the possibility of U.S. troops being killed in Bosnia, he said, “If you mean dying in the course of the United Nations effort, yes, it is worth that. If you mean dying American troops unilaterally going in with some false presumption that we can affect the outcome, the answer is unequivocally no.”
John Kerry claims that he will never give the U.N. a veto over our right to undertake a given military effort. It’s just that the U.N. can determine whether it is worth it for Americans to die in that military effort.
