Piling On Kerry

Earlier in the week, Kerry flip flopped yet again on an issue. This time relating to wmds in Iraq. The Times has the story and background:
But the decision, in the end, was Mr. Kerry's. He chose to take the bait on Monday at the edge of the Grand Canyon. Asked by a reporter, he said he would have voted for the resolution - even in the absence of evidence of weapons of mass destruction - before adding his usual explanation that he would have subsequently handled everything leading up to the war differently.

Kerry and his supporters are trying to nuance it with the runup to the war, the rush to war, blah, blah, blah. The problem is on October 9, 2002, Kerry said this on the Senate floor:
"Let me be clear: I am voting to give this authority to the President for one reason and one reason only: to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction if we cannot accomplish that objective through new tough weapons inspections."

Definitely a flip flop.
