Can't believe I missed this, particularly after my rant about Nazi death camps (and those who would compare Bush to Hitler) the other day, but Jeff at A Little More to the Right caught a huge Kerry mistatement.

Kerry has an obsession with having "been" places. He claims to have been at the signing of the treaty with Iraq after the first gulf war, although he was actually in Boston at the time and was never sighted at the signing. Doesn't show up in any photos of ther ceremony, either. That's pretty telling.

During the debate Kerry claimed to have visited KGB Headquarters in Treblinka Square. Here's the transcript.

KERRY: Well, let me just say quickly that I've had an extraordinary experience of watching up close and personal that transition in Russia, because I was there right after the transformation. And I was probably one of the first senators,
along with Senator Bob Smith of New Hampshire, a former senator, go down into the KGB underneath Treblinka Square and see reams of files with names in them.

Problem is, KGB headquarters is located in Lubyanka Square.

Treblinka was a notorious Nazi death camp.

Much is made of Bush's malapropisms. But this was a mistake on a grand scale.
