■ Clarification: A headline in the Boston Sunday Globe may have left the false impression that Senator John F. Kerry has called for a significant reduction in US military forces in Afghanistan. He has not. While the senator told the Globe that troop levels should be reduced by an unspecified amount, with greater emphasis on counterterrorism, he characterized that as a “tweak’’ of current strategy. The story failed to mention Kerry’s description of his position as a “tweak.’’ A Kerry spokesman also disputed the story’s portrayal of his meeting with Boston University professor Andrew J. Bacevich, a war opponent, as evidence of the senator’s growing doubts about the war. The spokesman said Kerry regularly speaks with people of varying views on the war and that the Bacevich meeting had no larger meaning.
