"Out of respect for the Foley family, no picture of James Foley was used," Weh's campaign manager said.
"Using James Foley for shock value is offensive to Mr. Foley's family, and voters," Udall's campaign manager said.
"Tom Udall feigned outrage over the inclusion of a now familiar image of this Jihadi terrorist, who is clearly the face of the evil that threatens our nation. Sen. Udall's comments about our diplomacy being 'good' reflect his naivete and inexperience in matters of national security."
GEPHARDT: I told Pres. Bush a year and a half ago that if he wanted to deal with Iraq & weapons, he needed to go to the UN, he needed to get their help & NATO’s help. He was not able to do it. He should have done it after we went in. I even told him at an early stage, “You’re not going to need them going in, you’re going to need them coming out.”
Bush is not doing his job. When I am president, I will go back to the UN, I will go to NATO, I will repair these alliances and we will again lead a world alliance against terrorism and the other problems that we face.
EDWARDS: Unfortunately what we see happening on the ground in Iraq right now is part of a long-term pattern by this president. He stubbornly continues to fight an effort to bring others in, to relinquish some responsibility, some control in order to bring our friends and allies into this effort.
This started a long time ago. It began with his unilateral disengagement from Kyoto, unilateral disengagement from the biological weapons convention, a whole series of nuclear nonproliferation agreements.
I will lead in a way that shows that America is strong, but at the same time that we will solve the world’s problems with the rest of the world in a multilateral, coalition-building way, because that is the most effective way to create respect for America. And at the end of the day, the American people are safer and more secure in a world where America is looked up to and respected.
