Gunnery Sgt. Shelby Lasater, a 13-year Marine with two tours in Iraq, was "appalled" by Kerry's words. The only thing he found funny was that photo of troops holding the mockingly misspelled banner. "I would not have done that, but I did get a good laugh," he said. Lasater is in Quantico, Va., working on a joint military effort to counter the Improvised Explosive Devices, or IEDs, used by Iraqi insurgents. "In the type of war that we fight right now," he said, "you have to be pretty darn smart."
