John Kerry Hypocrisy Alert: Rush Limbaugh makes a great point regarding John Kerry’s insistence that these Syrian rebels are moderates—yet he referred to American military as murderers who terrorize women and children.

RUSH: Let’s go to the audio sound bites. This is funny. This is yesterday in Washington on Capitol Hill during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the possible use of force against Syria. John Kerry, the haughty John Kerry, who served in Vietnam once, is being questioned by Mike McCaul, congressman, Texas, who said to Kerry, “My greatest concern, when we look at Syria, is who’s gonna fill the vacuum when the Assad regime falls?” Which we know that it will. Who’s gonna fill that vacuum? Are the rebel forces, the extremists gonna take over, not just the government, but are they gonna take over these weapons? ‘Cause they’re the ones most likely to use these weapons against Americans and the United States.
KERRY: I just don’t agree that a majority are Al-Qaeda and the bad guys. That’s not true. There are about 70 to a hundred thousand oppositionists, about somewhere, maybe, 15 to 25% might be in one group or another who are what we would deem to be bad guys. There is a real moderate opposition that exists. General Idris is running the military arm of that.
RUSH: Folks, I’m beside myself. That’s just not true. To say that the majority of the Syrian rebels are moderates? Do this. Go to Drudge, watch the video, if you can stomach the barbarism that these moderates in Kerry’s view are capable of and look at what Kerry calls moderate. This is a guy who compared American troops to Genghis Khan. This is a guy who said that American Marines in Iraq, in Haditha, were murdering, terrorizing women and children, and he has the gall to tell us that the Al-Qaeda rebels in Syria are moderates. Everybody ought to be outraged by this! Moderates? The majority of them are moderates, US military, Genghis Khan, rapists, murderers, terrorists? I don’t know how else to express my anger.
