Fox fact check 

FOX News takes a Bush mischaracterization in the debate and presents it as if Kerry said it:

From "Bush, Kerry Spar on Iraq War",

Kerry has said that if elected, he would pull American troops out of Iraq within six months although later he said he would not impose such a fast deadline.

From "Debate Fact Check",

Bush also mischaracterized Kerry's position on withdrawing troops from Iraq: "My opponent at one time said, 'Well, get me elected, I'll have them out of there in six months.' " In fact, Kerry said he would hope to begin a withdrawal in six months, not complete it. His aim would be to finish the withdrawal in four years if conditions allow.
