Kerry caught in a lie

Well it wasn't the whole funding thing I was blogging about but, this is a pretty big lie. Joel Mowbray in this article from the Washington Times points out that in the second debate Kerry had said that "this president hasn't listened. I went to meet with the members of the Security Council in the week before we voted. I went to New York. I talked to all of them, to find out how serious they were about really holding Saddam Hussein accountable." But according to four of the fifteen members of the security council, "they had never met Mr. Kerry."

I'll repeat that. They had never met Mr. Kerry. There are no records of such a meeting. Apparently Kerry did meet with France (big surpirse), Cameroon, and Singapore, and possibly Britain, but no where near the entire council as he claimed.

Now telling whoppers to the rabid moonbats that attend his rallies might be one thing, but telling a bold face lie to the entire nation watching that debate is another. I have confidence that blogosphere and talk radio will take this tid bit and pound it into the ground. The big questions are will the MSM pick this up and what will Kerry's response be. According to Mowbray article, a Kerry rep said that they were sticking to the story. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Should be an interesting few days though...

UPDATE: All the big blogs have their takes posted, but I like Roger L. Simon's Christmas in Cambodia All Over Again. Give it a read.
