Kerry lies about meeting with Security Council members

A story on the front page of today's Washington Times refutes the claim by Senator Kerry that he met with the members of the UN Security Council before his vote on the war. The Times points to a statement Kerry made in the second presidential debate:

"This president hasn't listened. 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.

The statement was part of an overall argument Kerry has tried to make throughout the campaign; that he has the ability - and connections - to work with world leaders. But just like the Senator's claims earlier this year that he had met with world leaders who wanted to see him elected, this story is a complete lie. Another fabrication delivered to the American people from a man who claims his mothers dying words to him were "integrity, integrity, integrity".

Joel Mowbray, who wrote the Times piece, did his homework and reports the following:

But of the five ambassadors on the Security Council in 2002 who were reached directly for comment, four said they had never met Mr. Kerry. The four also said that no one who worked for their countries' U.N. missions had met with Mr. Kerry either.

Its a shame the MSM will little, if any, attention to this story. The Senator was never questioned on his admitted fantasies of secret missions to Cambodia (a lie he spouted, among other places, on the floor of the US Senate), so it will be no surprise this latest tale from the Senator is ignored.
