John Kerry Thinks We Were Not at War on September 11, 2001 … Democrats Who Are Out of Touch with Reality


This may be one of the most absurd, yet typical comments from the Left regarding 9–11. John Kerry, the Democratic Senator from Massachusetts thinks that America was not at was on September 11, 2001. How naive and clueless could anybody possible be? And John Kerry think McCain is out of touch? Can you say terror denial? A note to Democrats, one of the first steps in denial is to admit there is a problem. At peace!!! I guess al Qaeda did not get the memo Senator Kerry.

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) believes that on September 11 “we were basically at peace.”

Asked to clarify his remarks, specifically asking about the attacks on the U.S.S. Cole during Barack Obama campaign conference call, Kerry said, “well, we hadn’t declared war,” The Hill’s Sam Youngman reports.

Asked if al Qaeda was a threat at the time, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee said, “well yes, obviously they were a threat. But, fundamentally we were not at war at that point in time.”

Kerry also called John McCain “out of step with history and facts.”

To all those misguided people that think that America was at peace on September 11, 2001 … check out the reality. The next President and Commander and Chief better have a full and complete understanding of our enemy and the dangers that America faces on a daily basis.

As Hot Air states, Kerry’s comments regarding his clueless belief that America was at peace is just Reason #117 that we can all thank our lucky stars that he was not elected in 2004.

      Sadly, this comment truly spits in the face of all those who lost their loved one’s, family, friends… on 9/11

      That’s EXACTLY why JIM OGANOWSKI is getting my VOTE FOR SENATE this coming election~ (Jim Oganowski he’s running against Kerry)…many of you have heard of his brother, John.

      JOHN OGANOWSKI, was the beloved PILOT for the 1st plane that went into the twin towers. God rest his soul and those all lost on this horriffic, tragic day…

      Being from Mass. This statement of Kerry’s is no surprise… time for him to go!


      At least Jim realizes that his brothers loss, and the loss of all others was an act of terrorism and it’s a comfort knowing, that he’ll do the right thing, when he’s in the SENATE!… Protect our borders, have Government be for us, the people for a change…he’s one of the most honest, caring, loving individuals you’d ever want to know and it would honor his late brother, (and all the lives lost on 9/11) his getting elected.

      It’s truly pathetic and shows arrogance/ignorance having your senator say stupid things like this… maybe there’s something in the ketchup!

      Time to get rid of career politicians. It used to be an act of service to one’s country….then somehow turned to a lifelong career, and that’s when the trouble started.

      For anyone who has served in Washington, it’s time to go home to your family. We need people in Washington who “don’t know how things work”.

      Because it’s not working.

      I don’t believe that we ever “declared” war against Vietnam, did we? If we did, it certainly wasn’t until late in the war … oh, that’s right, we never were at war in Vietnam.

      Not by Kerry’s definition, at least.

      Scared Monkeys, Heed the warning of Abe Lincoln and JFK and RFK–”The enemy is WITHIN.” The title of a book RFK wrote.

      de jure he is right
      de facto he is not.

      but for sure mccain was wrong when he said:

      “I can look you in the eye and tell you that (the surge) is succeeding. We have drawn down to pre-surge levels, Basra, Mosul and now Sadr City are quiet,”

      +troops are not down to pre-surge levels
      +same day 30 death due to suicide bombings in mosul.

      so kerry is very right to call mccain ‘out of step with history and facts’.

      Democrats? Out of touch with reality?

      Say it isn’t so!

    8. columbo on June 1st, 2008 8:09 am

      does he believe it? or does he just want you to believe it? that’s even worse…….

    9. columbo on June 1st, 2008 8:10 am

      Here is a list of how many US soldiers were killed when Bill Clinton was in office. We didn’t get constant death tolls the way we do now, so you probably haven’t seen these numbers before.


      That is a total of 4,417 military deaths during the Clinton years.

    10. Susan on June 1st, 2008 10:30 am

      John Kerry wouldn’t know what REALITY is if it slapped him upside his ugly face!! His brain is fried from all the drugs he’s consumed over the years. If the attacks of 9/11 were not reason enough to declare war, then what is? He scares me almost as much as OSAMA Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

    11. Auntiem on June 1st, 2008 10:36 am

      Let me tell you about 9/11…I was THERE!!!! Right across the East River in Brooklyn Heights….half a block from the Promenade ( walk way along the River) I watched the Towers fall, people coming over the Brooklyn Bridge, dazed, dirty, in shock. People coming up from the subway, not knowing what was happening, they were just trying to get to work…they didn’t know then that they were the lucky ones….either late for work, having a later work day, whatever, the subway cars that they we on had just about gotten to the river, one more stop and they would’ve been in Manhattan, in the WTB and dead!!!! It happened ……it was worse than Pearl Harbor…it was in the midst of one of our cities……it was civilians, both in the air and on the ground…ALL civilians, at work, on vacation, flying home…….IT WAS AND STILL IS WAR!!!!

      War on terror, war on Radical Islam, war on all those who wish to destroy freedom……Wake up America……we NEED to be in the Middle East, our soldiers bravely some fatally fighting to preserve our freedom. Wake up, stop listening to fools who would have us sit by and have our country taken over, our freedom stripped from us!!
      The Arabs took over the Middle East, countries like Persia, being dominated by Islam, the Ayatollahs (sp?) forcing Muslim traditions on Jews and Christians……it happened there…now they want it to happen here!!! They despise all who are not Muslim, they despise the Western way of life, Freedom!!!!

      And fools like Kerry, Obama, Oprah and other Hollywood ilk, are taking up the cause and Americans are falling for it!! Dear God, sometimes I feel there is no sanity left, when people who appeared to have intelligence fail to see what is happening!!!

      I don’t care what you think about Bush…..I’m not a big fan of his, I don’t think he is the brightest man in the country, but he is right about being at war. Even my ultra-liberal ex-son in law, remarked on 9/11, thank God Bush is president, Gore would not have the guts to go to war. Yeah, even that ultra liberal young man,who was working in the Chrysler building, so close to the Towers, and had to run like hell up Broadway toward upper Manhattan and ultimately safety. I guess he got a different perspective, when he came so close to losing his life,….when he actually saw how people up in thoses two tall buildings, jumped out of 90th floors rather than burn to death.
      One liberal, who came to the conclusion, Liberalism is not synonymous with Freedom……it is just the opposite!!!!

      Is anybody else having trouble reading here due to the “categories” list to the right???

      “That is a total of 4,417 military deaths during the Clinton years.”

      out of where did you pull those numbers? :D

      or are you counting WWII vets who died during that time?

      Conflicts in the last 20 years

      Between the Vietnam War and the war on terrorism, no U.S. conflict lasted more than six months, and casualties among U.S. troops have been low.

      By date of U.S. involvement

      DEPLOYED U.S. TROOPS: 26,000
      U.S. BATTLE DEATHS: 29
      TOTAL U.S. DEATHS: 43

      DEPLOYED U.S. TROOPS: 7,000
      TOTAL U.S. DEATHS: 2

      UsesBill Clinton (1993 – 2000) …………. 7,500 deaths

      George W. Bush (2001 – 2006) …. 8,792 deaths

      Moreover, of the 7,500 fatalities that occurred on Clinton’s watch, only 76 were attributable to hostile action (as compared to 2,596 under Bush); the rest were the result of accidents, homicide, illness, self-inflicted injuries, or unknown causes.

      the actual figures from the Congressional Research Service

    17. Susan on June 1st, 2008 8:32 pm

      #14 John Ryan,

      Why are you asking me to post the number of America military deaths caused by hostile forces? I don’t know right off hand, but sure doing a little research online I could come up with a rough estimate.

      #15 Columbo,

      You left out the American Revolutionary War, the Civil War, WWI and II, and Vietnam to name a few.

    18. caesu on June 2nd, 2008 1:24 am

      #15, 16 columbo

      you are mistaken big time.
      you are repeating an urban legend.
      it is posted all over the internet and ignorant, stupid people who refuse to think for themselves fall for it.

      please for a moment try to think for yourselve.
      it would do you good.

      U.S. Military Deaths Since 1980
      Netlore Archive: Email flier purports to demonstrate that there were more U.S. military casualties under the Bill Clinton administration than there have been during the Iraq War under George W. Bush

      Description: Email flier
      Circulating since: Nov. 2007
      Status: Mostly false

      only 76 were attributable to hostile action (as compared to 2,596 under Bush); the rest were the result of accidents, homicide, illness, self-inflicted injuries, or unknown causes.

      i wonder where all those viral e-mail hoaxes orginate from?
      it clearly works, because people like columbo switch their own brain off and take it for facts.

      it is sad that so many are that gullible.
      the made it for bush so easy to mislead congress and the nation into that illegal war.

    19. jon on June 2nd, 2008 9:15 pm

      I think I saw Kerry wearing an Abraham Lincoln top hot one day. Was that with his beard?
