Sen. Cornyn: Kerry's 'Explosive' Charges Baseless and Ironic

Tuesday, 26 October 2004 12:00 AM

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and a frequent defender of President Bush, issued a statement Tuesday blasting

"When U.S. and coalition troops secured more than 400,000 tons of the Hussein regime's explosives, John Kerry said nothing," Cornyn noted. "But when less than one tenth of one percent of that amount was reported missing by the New York Times, John Kerry suddenly found his voice.

"But now, after calling the administration incompetent and blundering, it turns out that John Kerry's charges Monday, as usual, were based on false assumptions," Cornyn said.

"I hope my colleague will now apologize to the brave men and women in Iraq who are working every day to secure Hussein's vast arsenal. And I hope that I am not the only one who sees the irony in the Kerry campaign complaining about the dangers of weapons that, if John Kerry had his way, would still be under the hair-trigger control of Saddam Hussein.

"Sadly, John Kerry is all too quick to criticize our men and women in uniform for short-term political gain before he has the facts. This is not a quality America needs in a commander-in-chief during a time of war."

Sen. Cornyn serves as co-chairman of the Bush campaign's Texas leadership team.
