In Case You Forgot…

…and I’m sure you did, Sen. Kerry had it right all along, even though he took endless mocking and abuse from Junior Bush and the DC press corps during the 2004 Presidential campaign.  Perhaps fighting terrorists by invading countries with huge armies wasn’t the right way to go; we could ask Bin Laden, but he’s, you know, dead:

”We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they’re a nuisance,” the article states as the Massachusetts senator’s reply.”As a former law enforcement person, I know we’re never going to end prostitution. We’re never going to end illegal gambling. But we’re going to reduce it, organized crime, to a level where it isn’t on the rise. It isn’t threatening people’s lives every day, and fundamentally, it’s something that you continue to fight, but it’s not threatening the fabric of your life.”

Kerry was a prosecutor before he got into politics, and made fighting organized crime a priority.
