Egyptians crying for a government not run by radical muslim extremists rose up and successfully ousted Mohammed Morsi on Wednesday after much clashing with the muslim Brotherhood. During all of the violence, U.S. Secretary of State, former Senator and failed presidential candidate John Kerry, was enjoying some down time on his private yacht.
The State Department confirmed on Friday that during Wednesday's uprising in Egypt, Secretary Kerry was on his yacht. According to The Blaze, the State Department was forced on Friday to fess up to Kerry's whereabouts during the strife after The Boston Herald released pictures of Kerry having a little fun in the sun.
“While he was briefly on his boat on Wednesday, Secretary Kerry worked around the clock all day including participating in the president’s meeting with his national security council,” spokeswoman Jen Psaki said.
Ms. Psaki, as Secretary of State, shouldn't Mr. Kerry have been oh, I don't know, IN WASHINGTON MONITORING THE SITUATION???? He is, after all, the person in charge of forging the relationships this country has with others around the globe. The situation in Egypt seemed to fall into the "pretty damned important" category if you ask me.
Reports from the State Department had earlier denied that Secretary Kerry was on his boat during the rebellion. Psaki had previously stated:
Darn those pictures revealing the truth.Since his plane touched down in Washington at 4 a.m., Secretary Kerry was working all day and on the phone dealing with the crisis in Egypt.He participated in the White House meeting with the president by secure phone and was and is in non-stop contact with foreign leaders, and his senior team in Washington and Cairo. Any report or tweet that he was on a boat is completely inaccurate. (Emphasis added at The Blaze)
The question that I cannot seem to find an answer for is "Why is John Kerry Secretary of State?" The man has talked about his disdain for the U.S. after returning home from Vietnam and, allegedly, thrown away the medals he received while serving there. In my opinion, his relationship with Hanoi Jane speaks volumes. And the left has the nerve to call Edward Snowden a traitor???
Kerry's title should be changed to an honest "Secretary of Apologizing for America's Superiority". It appears to be what he does best.
