It looks as if pathological liar and long-time radical Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) will be nominated for Secretary of State. But who is Kerry?
Let’s begin in 1971, when Kerry, ironically speaking to the same Foreign Relations Committee which he now heads, said of America’s efforts in the Vietnam War:
Then the slander started:
Kerry bullied others to lie, too, as Steve Pitkin, a fellow veteran who testified with Kerry, later admitted:
On a February trip to the Middle East, Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman John Kerry (D-MA) told Qatari leaders that the Golan Heights should be returned to Syria, that a Palestinian capital should be established in East Jerusalem as part of the Arab-Israeli peace process, and that he was ‘shocked’ by what he saw on a visit to Gaza.
Any negotiation has its limits, added Senator Kerry, and we know for the Palestinians that control of Al- Aqsa mosque and the establishment of some kind of capital for the Palestinians in East Jerusalem are not negotiable.
In 2007, Kerry voted against a Senate resolution that wanted to “combat, contain, and roll back the violent activities and destabilizing influence inside Iraq of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran.” This, of course is exactly what has been happening ever since. The resolution also designated the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps as a foreign terrorist organization; Kerry didn’t like that either.
Kerry was one of the first politicians to call for Egyptian President Mubarak’s resignation, in line with Barack Obama’s push for the Islamization of the Middle East.
But the most damning charge against Kerry is that this man who came home and denounced American troops in Vietnam left POWs behind who were still imprisoned there when he headed the Select Senate Committee on POW-MIA Affairs. There was plenty of evidence that POW’s were still in Vietnam, but Kerry pushed for normalization of relations with Vietnam despite that.
