John Kerry's Strange Criticism of Netanyahu
John Kerry is a very strange man. As he rushes headlong into his secret agreement with Iran over those nukes, he spoke out against Bibi Netanyahu's criticism of the deal. He also raised the issue of Netanyahu supporting the US invasion of Iraq.
"The prime minister was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush. We all know what happened with that decision."
John Kerry was also "very forward leaning" as a senator because he voted for it as well.
At the same time, we have Susan "It was all over a video" Rice saying in an interview with Charlie Rose on Tuesday that Netanyahu's accepting an invitation to speak before Congress is "destructive to the fabric of the US-Israel relationship". More destructive than Kerry's comments, Ms. Rice?
And last I checked, Netanyahu was invited to speak before Congress not the White House.
But Kerry won't be there, nor will Joe Biden. Nor will several Democrat members of Congress.
And finally, we now have the specter of the Black Congressional Caucus at the urging of the WH apparently preparing to walk out of the speech.
How destructive to the fabric of the US-Israel relationship will that be, Ms. Rice?
