Kerry has issued a semi-apology, apologizing for any hurt he may have caused, but saying that "hurt" was caused by a "misinterpretation" of his words, rather than admiting that his words themselves were wrong.
But when he was interviewed, he said that he had just gotten ONE word wrong. He then said that he meant to say "they got US stuck in Iraq", but he accidentally said "they got stuck in Iraq".
Except that is not what he said. His exact words were: "you get stuck in Iraq". Not "THEY get stuck". He explicitly said that if you didn't get a good education, YOU get stuck in Iraq.
Anyway, this story should die out now that some of the more SANE democrats have called for Kerry to apologize (Webb is notoriously NOT one of those SANE democrats, in spite of his more sane call for Kerry to apologize two years ago for other remarks Kerry made against the troops).
Kerry has done as much of an apology as the media would require from a democrat; Kerry won't endure 3 weeks of the Washington Post finding individuals to talk about the way his words hurt them.
And they won't bother asking Webb why he didn't seek an apology, but rather defended Kerry's joking about our troops in Iraq.
