28. Exactly!

People are bringing up Kerry, and trying to hold Greenwald in a more favorable light than Kerry.

As I said, Greenwald isn't an elected official. Kerry set out with Kennedy in January 2003 to accuse Bush of attempting to violate the IWR and rush to war. In fact, two weeks into the war, when I'm sure Greenwald was still cheering (he indicates his epiphany was around 2004 to 2005), Kerry was demanding regime change in this country. Still, it figures that while everyone else has been called gullible and stupid for believing Bush, some expect Greenwald to be held to a different standard.

I'm trying to wrap my head around the origins of this:

"I had not abandoned my trust in the Bush administration... I wanted the president to succeed, because my loyalty is to my country and he was the leader of my country... I believed then that the president was entitled to have his national security judgment "

That ws the gist of Greenwald's thinking.
