'John Kerry himself was in a position of influence. He was a Senator. He supported the war. He voted for the war. A year later when he ran for the presidency, he continued support of the war.'

Charles Krauthammer: That Kerry statement is rather rich. He talks about Netanyahu supporting the Iraq war. Let's remember, that was in 2003. Netanyahu did not become prime minister until six years later. So here we have an opposition politician in a country 3,000 miles away when at the same time, John Kerry himself was in a position of influence. He was a Senator. He supported the war. He voted for the war. A year later when he ran for the presidency, he continued support of the war. So we perhaps by Kerry's own logic, we ought to be questioning his judgment. And I would say that his performance in the job he has now as a diplomat, somebody exercising judgment, is not exactly sterling.
