Diplomacy trumps politics…

Baseball Crank makes a point that had occurred to me as well. John Kerry has consistently attacked President Bush for not getting France et al to support the war in Iraq. Kerry has claimed that, as president, he could convince them to do so.

Bush could destroy this line of attack by simply pointing to increasing evidence that our “allies” were bribed by Saddam Hussein to actively undermine both sanctions and the U.S. war effort. Unfortunately, Bush has to tread very lightly on this issue. He still has to work with the leaders of these countries, so sound political tactics have to take a back seat to diplomacy.
