Kerry Starts His Confirmation Process
Senator John Kerry started his confirmation process today speaking before the Senate. He pledged as Secretary of State to 'implement President Obama's vision for the world' . Rather odd to me to see the word 'honorable' next to the name of a man whose chief accomplishments involve arguably committing de facto treason against hi sown country during war time, lying to Congress in the Winter Soldiers hearings, marrying rich women, and shilling for the likes of Syria's Basher Assad. But I guess that only proves the truth of Sir John Harrington's famous couplet on the matter.
"President Obama and everyone here knows that American foreign policy is not defined by drones and deployments alone," Kerry said.
"American foreign policy is also defined by food security and energy security, humanitarian assistance, the fight against disease and the push for development, as much as it is by any single counter terrorism initiative," he added.
Translation? Like President Obama and the other two national security nominees Chuck Hagel and John Brennan, Kerry really, really likes Islamists and figures we can bribe them to leave us alone by throwing lots of foreign aid and military goodies at them while creating 'daylight' between America and Israel, to use President Obama's words.
Like the president and his two co-nominees, he also isn't overly concerned about a nuclear Iran..after all, they just need peace, love and understanding.
There's no doubt in my mind he'll be confirmed. So will Hagel and Brennan.
And th emess they leave will remain to be cleaned up later.
