In April, John Kerry said:
That is why, for the long term, our third step we must remove the â€œMade in Americaâ€ label from the Iraqi occupation.
We can do that by creating an international mission authorized by the United Nations. That mission should become the main civilian partner in helping the Iraqi people hold elections, restore government services and rebuild their economy. This would make it possible to attract needed financial help from other nations, and show that Iraqi extremists are opposing not just the United States, but also the will of the nations of the world.
I’ve always been against this statement – the reason for the war was because the President said that Iraq was a threat to the U.S. We do not need to go groveling to that anti-semitic United Nations and beg for permission to protect ourselves.
But now there’s evidence in the New York Post today that the corrupt Oil-for-Food scandal, besides lining the pockets of French officials and United Nations pestocrats and Kofi Annan’s son that Saddam squirrelled away $10.1 billion that’s now being paid to fund the terrorists against US forces and the new Iraqi government.
Let’s check out John Kerry’s “A Strategy for Success in Iraq.” Hmm… that’s odd. He doesn’t mention the United Nations anymore. Huh.
