Okay, Which Is It?

Right Thinking Girl points to an item in the Washington Times “Inside Politics” section from October 21:

While Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry normally accuses President Bush of being reckless in pursuit of the war on terror and relying too little on foreign allies, he earlier this week accused Mr. Bush of being “risk-averse” in that pursuit and relying too much on allies, reports Charles Hurt of The Washington Times.
As he often does, Mr. Kerry scolded Mr. Bush for cornering Osama bin Laden in the mountains of Tora Bora in Afghanistan and then letting him get away — a claim disputed by Army Gen. Tommy Franks, commander of the U.S.-led war to topple the Taliban and other military leaders.
“We had him cornered in the mountains of Tora Bora,” Mr. Kerry said in Dayton, Ohio. “But you know what this president did? Just like he did with your jobs, he outsourced that job to the Afghan warlords who one week earlier weren’t even on our side.”
Bin Laden “just walked out the back door all by himself because this president ran a risk-averse policy and didn’t use the greatest troops in the world.”
[emphasis mine]


This from the same guy who screams every chance he gets about the United States acting unilaterally and not bringing our (alleged) allies into the process?


These flips and flops are getting faster and faster, like watching a tennis match on fast-forward.
I’m getting dizzy and it’s giving me a headache.

Time for more coffee, methinks.
