9. I think Sen. Kerry was consistent in this.
In his Georgetown speech, Kerry laid out steps that have to be taken in order to draw down troop levels and leave Iraq in Iraqi hands in as stable a form as possible. Some of the most important things he mentioned are the things that were taken out.

We have to state unequivocally that we have no plans for permanent bases in IRaq.

We have to acknowledge that the solution to Iraq's problems is political, not military.

The Congress has to hold the Admin accountable and demand real action. The Congress must demand accountability from this Admin. The toothless version enacted in the Warner/Frist stolen amendment suggests that the Admin report back, but there is no enforcement or sense of hurry behind this.

Funny, I am glad the stolen amendment passed because it shows the Dems have come roaring back. At the same time, I understand why Kerry voted against the stolen amendment. It wasn't what he said we needed. He is being internally consistent on this.
