What Kerry said - <br><br>"In the dark days of the Cuban missile crises, President Kennedy sent former Secretary of State Dean Acheson to Europe to build support. Acheson explained the situation to French President de Gaulle. Then he offered to show him highly classified satellite photos as proof. De Gaulle waved him away saying, "The word of the President of the United States is good enough for me." How many world leaders have that same trust in America's president today?"<br><br>The whole story - <br><br>Preamble<br><br>In 1962, when President Kennedy had sent Dean Acheson and Sherman Kent to see General de Gaulle and to show him the photographs of the Soviet nuclear-tipped rockets in Cuba, General de Gaulle, unlike many of the European leaders, had accepted that it might be necessary for the United States to take preemptive military action against Cuba. He was a man who understood the uses of power, and he watched carefully to see what we would do. When he saw that instead of taking such action, we appeared to him to have made an agreement with Khrushchev by which we took our missiles out of Greece and Turkey in return for the withdrawal of Soviet missiles in Cuba, he felt that we had not really won the Cuban missile confrontation. One of his closest aides said to me that de Gaulle had told his entourage, "If the Americans will not fight for Cuba 90 miles from the United States, they will not fight for Europe 3,500 miles away. I must draw the conclusions from this that affect France's independence and defense." I cannot prove this, but nearly all my contacts close to de Gaulle reflected something very like this.<br><br>btw, they did look at the photographs, De Gaulle didn't just take the word of President<br><br><br>http://www.cia.gov/csi/studies/95unclass/Walters.html<br>http://www.cia.gov/csi/books/shermankent/10cuban.html<br><br>[color:blue]All your sock puppets are belong to us</font color=blue>
There's also this:<br><br>Kerry fiction: "I went to meet with the members of the Security Council in the week before we voted. I went to New York. I talked to all of them, to find out how serious they were about really holding Saddam Hussein accountable," Mr. Kerry said of the Iraqi dictator. <br><br>Truth:Security Council members deny ever meeting Kerry<br><br><br><br><br><br>
