The "imprecision" of words

Kerry does some damage control after connecting Sikhs with terrorism:

Senator John Kerry, US Democratic Presidential front-runner, has regretted the "imprecision" of his remarks in which he referred to Sikhs as terrorists.

During a campaign speech in Oklahoma last month, Senator Kerry had linked the Sikhs with terrorism, sparking off a sharp reaction from the community all across the United States.

He is the front-runner for the Democratic nomination for US President.

"It has been brought to my attention that remarks I made on Saturday, January 31 have been misunderstood to imply that adherents of the Sikh faith condone terrorism. Nothing could be farther from the truth and I regret that the imprecision of my statement led to this misunderstanding."
