I can hardly believe the irony, but it appears that despite Kerry's sparse Senate attendance record a couple of the votes he actually did bother to make are now revealing yet another lie. According to Captain's Quarters,

Bandit reports that during that interview three years ago, Kerry stated that he went to Iraq on March 3rd during the signing of the cease-fire agreement that ended the first Gulf War:
"I mean, I was in Safwan. I went there when the signing of the armistice took place at the end of the war."
... Even more remarkably, John Kerry managed to miss no Senate votes during that week. On February 28th, Kerry voted to table an amendment during a roll-call vote. On March 6th, Kerry again managed to make a roll-call vote, this time voting against tabling an amendment by Senator Tom Harkin. It's not impossible for him to have been to Iraq and back, but it seems less likely.

Bandit discovered a March 4th, 1991 Boston Globe article that narrows the timeframe more.

Anyway, the point is that John Kerry appears to have gone to Iraq a couple of weeks after the armistice was signed, but he certainly wasn't there for the event itself.
