"Israel's security fence is a legitimate act of self defense."
- John Kerry, Campaign Statement, February 2004.
"We don't need another barrier to peace."
- John Kerry, referring to the security fence in a speech to the Arab American Institute in Michigan, October 2003.
(Note: The Kerry campaign has defended the inconsistency by saying Kerry's objection to the fence was based on its route. However, the route had not significantly changed during the time between the two statements. Same fence, same route, different audiences.)
