ABSTRACT
Editorial. Presents an editorial regarding accusations made by United States President George W. Bush against Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry following Kerry's criticism of the Iraq War. Report that Bush accused Kerry of assisting terrorists and harming U.S. troops merely because he criticizes U.S. policy in Iraq; Claim that Bush's accusation involves unsupported assumptions about how the Iraqi insurgents think; Statement that Bush has said that the terrorists hate Americans because of who they are, rather than because of what they do, thereby making it impossible for Kerry to affect the insurgents' actions toward the U.S.; Reference to public opinion polls showing that families who had someone on active duty, in the Reserves, or a veteran were less likely than other voters to support the Iraq War; Claim that Bush's attacks on Kerry are anti-democratic; Discussion of the implication that there is something disloyal about an aggressive effort to defeat an incumbent president in a time of war.
