Sen. Kennedy, D-Mass., Quickly Criticizes Bush's Speech/NYT
Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., quickly returned Bush's criticism.

"Its deeply regrettable that the president is using Veterans Day as a campaign-like attempt to rebuild his own credibility by tearing down those who seek the truth about the clear manipulation of intelligence in the run-up to the Iraq war," Kennedy said in a statement.

"Instead of providing open and honest answers about how we will achieve success in Iraq and allow our troops to begin to come home," Kennedy said, "the president reverted to the same manipulation of facts to justify a war we never should have fought."

16. Burr & Dole, we're never disappointed, those 2 only know what
KKKarl faxes. Can't think of any single time that either has gone against the administration's wishes.

23. He should have added.
President Bush's speech gives me comfort that Karl Rove feels safe enough to crawl out from under that rock now.
You all must realize how concerned I've been lately.

14. the larger point is--that while we all ague--troops are dying and little
is getting done (some props from Dems)--to draw down the troops levels and get out.

17. I wonder if somebody in Ted's office saw the hubbub on DU about this.
I haven't heard the point about using Veterans Day made anywhere else besides here, and now from Kennedy.

18. Teddy never sidesteps and he never backs down
But he has the admiration of his intelligent constituents to fall back on, so we need to credit them as well. They've kept him on the job.

27. Question? Kennedy quotes now gone from NYT piece?
Edited on Fri Nov-11-05 01:33 PM by kpete
What does this mean? I read, cut and paste those quotes earlier. I returned to the times and they seem to have changed the article. WTF!!! Is there a way to go back in time?

Footnote: found it in Newsday, but that does not answer the question about why the NYT changed their article to exclude Kennedy's remark. Is my tinfoil hat on to tight or is the NYT up to their old tricks?
