||Kerry's Freudian Slip: "We will double our special forces to conduct terrorist operations..."
July 30, 2004
From a listener:
Dear Alex, I could not believe what I heard with my own ears. John Kerry said this during his speech at the DNC on Thursday evening July 29th, at approximately 10 : 32 EDT: "We will double our special forces to conduct terrorist operations..." then he corrected his freudian slip.
I am sure that you or one of your other aware listeners caught this but just in case you did not I wanted to alert you. It will probably be deleted out of the official transcript of the speech.
from another listener:
all the video clips i've seen of the speech have been segmented and have left this part out.
at 22 minutes into his speech
his writen speach
We will add 40,000 active duty troops - not in Iraq, but to strengthen American forces that are now overstretched, overextended, and under pressure. We will double our special forces to conduct anti-terrorist operations . We will provide our troops with the newest weapons and technology to save their lives - and win the battle. And we will end the backdoor draft of National Guard and reservists.
what was really said
We will double our special forces to conduct terrorist operations. anti-terrorist operations.
