Check out Instapundit here, quoting the excellent kausfiles (who doesn’t seem to have permalinks or I’d link him directly), quoting the somewhat less-than-excellent John F Kerry from October 2001:
I have no doubt, I’ve never had any doubt — and I’ve said this publicly — about our ability to be successful in Afghanistan. We are and we will be. The larger issue, John, is what happens afterwards. How do we now turn attention ultimately to Saddam Hussein? How do we deal with the larger Muslim world? What is our foreign policy going to be to drain the swamp of terrorism on a global basis?
Blowing with the wind, as always.
