Senator Kerry said about the so-called controversy over Jean-Bertrand Aristide's departure from Haiti "I have a very close friend in Massachusetts who talked directly to people who have made that allegation," Kerry said on "Today" on NBC. "I don't know the truth of it. I really don't. But I think it needs to be explored and we need to know the truth of what happened.
It looks like we have a presidential candidate who is really plugged into what is happening in the world. He hears something from someone who heard something from someone who heard something and now he is demanding an investigation even though he doesn't have the slightest idea about whether that something is true or not.
I cannot believe a man who aspires to be president actually said this.
