Text of John Kerry's Speech

John Kerry spoke at NYU Monday. Here's the text of his speech. Here's a snippet:

Saddam Hussein was a brutal dictator who deserves his own special place in hell. But that was not, in itself, a reason to go to war. The satisfaction we take in his downfall does not hide this fact: we have traded a dictator for a chaos that has left America less secure.

The President has said that he “miscalculated” in Iraq and that it was a “catastrophic success.” In fact, the President has made a series of catastrophic decisions … from the beginning … in Iraq. At every fork in the road, he has taken the wrong turn and led us in the wrong direction.

As Kerry says, this election is about choices. You have one. Please exercise it on November 2. Register now. Get an absentee ballot. And tell a friend.
