Mike Thompson may be even more liberal than the most liberal member
of the U.S. Senate, John Kerry!
Rep. Mike Thompson, along with fellow
Democrats McDermott and Bonior
traveled to Baghdad to denounce the
President. They are known as the
Baghdad 3. Appearing on ABC’s This
Week, from Baghdad the 3 denounced
the President, called him a liar.
In a joint press release all three issued and posted on their websites,
they criticized U.S. saber rattling and pounding of war drums.

the dangerous implications of a unilateral, preemptive strike on
U.S. National Security.
Upon arrival in Baghdad, they told reporters they reject the policy
of aggression dominating the U.S. administration. They said: “We
are three veterans of the Vietnam War who came over here because
we don't want war. We assert from here that we do not want the

What did Moore get for his comments? A seat in Senator Kerry’s
box at this year’s Democrat National Convention! Unbelievable!
This is a trend that started with “The Baghdad Three’s” trip
to Iraq before the war.
Suddenly, it became okay to speak out publicly
against our nation, on foreign soil, in a time of war. And John
Kerry obviously thinks
it is just fine.
