In a satellite interview with Milwaukee TV station WISN, Kerry said, "I regret that when George Bush had the opportunity in Afghanistan at Tora Bora, he didn’t choose to use American forces to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden."
"He outsourced the job to Afghan warlords. I would never have done that. I think it was an enormous mistake, and we’re paying the price for that today," he said.
This is a perfect example of why John Kerry would be terrible as our commander-in-chief. His first response to Osama and his veiled threats was not condensing OBL and his attempt to influence the US elections, but instead only sees a political advantage. He should have been outraged at this attempt to influence our elections instead of taking more pot shots at our generals. When it comes down to it President Bush is no FDR looking studiously over maps to determine allowable bombing sites. The President has made the tough decisions and then turned over the planning to the military instead of being a micro-manager. So this whole week of criticism starting from the the missing ammunition to now has all been about blasting our military with his own Monday night quarterbacking. To him Bush is the enemy and OBL is only a nuisance. If he had the same fervor to conduct the war on terror as he has to become president then maybe he would be an acceptable commander-in-chief.
I am especially tired of his charge of outsourcing since it is both misleading and his own plan is to outsource everything to the UN.
