Straight from the Whitehouse.

Setting the Record Straight: Sen. Kennedy On Iraq

“It is regrettable that Senator Kennedy has chosen Veteran’s Day to continue leveling baseless and false attacks that send the wrong signal to our troops and our enemy during a time of war. It is also regrettable that Senator Kennedy has found more time to say negative things about President Bush then he ever did about Saddam Hussein. If America were to follow Senator Kennedy’s foreign policy, Saddam Hussein would not only still be in power, he would be oppressing and occupying Kuwait.”

– Scott McClellan, White House Press Secretary
