Senator Kerry says US troops are 'terrorizing kids and children' in Iraq

Reminiscent of his Vietnam War-era allegations, Senator John Kerry now accuses American troops in Iraq of "terrorizing kids and children."

Kerry's intemperate comments on CBS "Face the Nation" follow Democrat National Committee Chairman Howard Dean's pronouncement that the United States is doomed to lose the war in Iraq, and Senator Ted Kennedy's denunciation of the Pentagon for plotting "a devious scheme to place favorable propaganda in Iraqi newspapers."

Kerry told CBS host Bob Schieffer on December 4,

"And there is no reason, Bob, that young American soldiers need to be going into the homes of Iraqis in the dead of night, terrorizing kids and children, you know, women, breaking sort of the customs of the – of – the historical customs, religious customs. . . . Whether you like it or not ... Iraqis should be doing that."

At that point, CBS should have played the clip of Kerry at the congressional hearings in 1971 where he too claimed to have comitted war crimes. They should also have taken note of the taking of Elian Gonzalez in the middle of the night right here in this country.
