John Kerry "regrets" his mangled comment on the war in Iraq - intending to target the White House but sounding as though he blamed troops for their lack of education, consigning them to a bleak future as war fodder. It's not an unfamiliar gaffe for Kerry and tells you just how inept a politician he is, losing yet another debate to George "I stand by all my misstatements" Bush. However, it took Kerry two days to apologize. Now, three years and seven months after he misled the U.S. into war, will Bush say he's sorry? Nobody died from Kerry's mistake. Hundreds of thousands have perished, including 2,817 U.S. military personnel, from Bush's. The Weekly has just added five more obituaries to its War Dead list of troops with Washington connections - now totaling 142 killed in Iraq (16 in Afghanistan). The new post includes Army Staff Sgt. Ronald L. Paulsen of Vancouver. He was 53 when he was killed by a roadside bomb Oct. 17, becoming the oldest solider from this state to die in Iraq. He supersedes Army Master Sgt.Robb Gordon Needham, also of Vancouver, killed a month earlier. He was 51. Condolences, and apologies, to both families.
