Kerry Criticizes Bush's Policy in Iraq (washingtonpost.com)

[excerpt]-Kerry, the presumptive Democratic nominee to run against Bush in the Nov. 2 election, delivered a more critical prognosis in a speech at Westminster College in Fulton, Mo., the scene of a 1946 speech by Winton Churchill on the menace of an "Iron Curtain" dividing Europe. The college was also the site of an address Monday by Vice President Cheney, who took the opportunity to attack Kerry at length and question his judgment on national security.

Cheney's speech prompted the Westminster president, Fletcher Lamkin, to complain of "Kerry-bashing" and to offer the four-term senator from Massachusetts a chance to deliver a rebuttal.

While avoiding harsh partisan rhetoric in his speech, Kerry described the Bush administration's Iraq policy as teetering on the brink of disaster, with the United States shouldering too much of the burden.
