Kerry's Warnings Right on Cost of War

It seems that every few weeks we have another post on how Kerry was right and Bush was wrong. This includes the Iraqi weapons (and here), Bush's failure to capture Bin Laden, as well as the warnings that Bush would attempt to privitize Social Security after the election.

An editorial today in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette now argues that Kerry was right about the costs of the war:

During last year's campaign, President Bush's operatives ridiculed John Kerry for forecasting that the cost of the war in Iraq would exceed $200 billion. Now it appears that the Massachusetts senator's estimate was, if anything, on the low side.

The $82 billion war spending bill signed by Mr. Bush pushes the cost of military operations in Iraq well past the Kerry prediction, with no end in sight.
