Haiti

Captain Ed takes Kerry to task:
For example, he's [Kerry] continually carped over and over that Bush "lied" to him when Kerry voted for military action in Iraq, and derided Bush's attempts to get UN support for an ultimatum to Saddam Hussein (which he spent five months negotiating before finally giving up on France and Russia). However, as soon as Haiti popped up, Kerry derides Bush for taking five days to get a UN resolution creating the multinational force that Kerry insisted Bush should have waited for in Iraq!
Kerry (D-Mass.) said he would have sent troops to Haiti even without international support to quell the revolt against President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. "President Kerry would never have allowed that to get where it is," Kerry said, though he added he's not "a big Aristide fan." (via Tim Blair)

This is part of a pattern of equivocations by a completely reactive Kerry, who keeps playing both sides of every argument.

You know, I'm not too sure I agree with the Captain here. I think Kerry is being consistent, at least in the sense that he's always for supporting the despot.
