What Say You (This Time), Senator Kerry?

Has anyone heard any reaction to today's terrorist attacks in London from Senator (thank God!) Kerry's office? Oh, I'm sure he'll be issuing a statement full of boisterous tough talk about how we all must come together to defeat this vile enemy of freedom and liberty.

I only ask, because I'm quite curious as to what his assessment of the situation would be. Going back over some public statements he made this past year, one would be hard-pressed to reach any solid conclusions.

Was the threat of terrorism leading up to today's events in London "exaggerated", as it apparently is here in the United States?

"I think there has been an exaggeration," Mr. Kerry said when asked whether President Bush has overstated the threat of terrorism. "They are misleading all Americans in a profound way."

Or was this series of bombings merely a pesky "nuisance"? You know, the kind of attacks he feels we should be striving for.

We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance.

Just may be the families and loved ones of the dead and wounded.


UPDATE: For the record, it seems the senator is on our side this time.


America should offer every assistance to Great Britain in dealing with the aftermath of this tragedy and in hunting down and destroying those responsible.
