Jeff Beatty on War & Peace
Republican Senate challenger
Kerry branded Beatty's attack "insulting and frankly disgusting." He said his vote was based on intelligence reports presented to him by forme CIA director George Tenet and U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
The candidates agreed the United States should withdraw from Iraq and concentrate on Afghanistan, while working to ensure Iran does not obtain nuclear weapons.
A: Absolutely. I think it was a mistake, I thought it was a mistake at the time. I don't have to say with hindsight,
There's more than one way to get a success. I'll support any path that I believe allows us to leave with a success. You almost define success as anything that the terrorists would define as not a success for them.
Jeff supports and prays for the success of our troops in Iraq (many of his personal friends have served there, Afghanistan and elsewhere). Jeff has planned for and participated in combat operations and knows the seriousness of committing Americans to combat.
