It not only very clearly lays out what John Kerry actually said last Wednesday about the Downing Street Minutes, it totally demolishes the RW spin, which over the weekend had suddenly mushroomed into a claim that Kerry was calling for impeachment. Amazingly, Keith makes the manufactured RW spin a part of the news story, which it actually is, and proceeds to crush the lies.

The false claims, it turns out, originated from NewsMax (the "failed presidential candidate Kerry" lead-in was a clue :sarcasm: ) and Al-Jazeera.
