I can assure the Republican Congressman, the tens of thousands of family members whose loved ones have spilled their blood in Iraq, whether dead or horrifically wounded in this tragedy, would not agree with that assessment -- and it's a safe bet the millions of Iraqis who have watched their family members being slaughtered and their country demolished would take exception as well.

John Kerry responds to Boehner's incredibly callous statement.
