If you have to five one thing to the babbling ass who is the sitting Secretary of State of the USA! USA! USA! he is certainly is consistent. During John "Skull and Bones" Kerry's five show whirlwind tour of the Sunday morning propaganda circuit to gin up support behind a coordinated campaign to frame Russian leader Vladimir Putin for the shooting down of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 on Thursday the man with the ongoing and incurable case of diarrhea of the mouth slipped up in the worst possible place - Fox News.
Kerry has inflamed pro-Israel sentiment by daring to drop the proverbial turd in the punch bowl that has at least temporarily spoiled the fun in murdering women and children in Gaza like shooting fish in a barrel and will now have to take a break from his lying about Putin's alleged culpability in the jetliner catastrophe to engage in damage control - ass-kissing and prostrating himself before Bibi Netanyahu, the Israel amen chorus in the US Congress and the media - over his unspeakable blasphemy.
Fox of course pounced on the off-camera gaffe as the propaganda arm of the Republican party would be inclined to do, particularly in an election cycle and when there is a chance to even further enrage the chicken fried motherfuckers and their bastardized version of Christianity to goose-step to the polls come November. It is yet another opportunity to smear the Obama regime as being anti-Semitic, insufficiently loyal to God's chosen colony of racist, pogrom conducting, mass-murdering lunatics that is the festering wart on the ass of all of humanity under it's current extremist leadership. Mondoweiss has the clip of Kerry's off-camera goof as well as the reaction of Fox Sunday's host Chris Wallace pouncing on it like a dog devouring a piece of meat that is dropped from the dinner table.
Netanyahu Racks Up the Body Count of Dead Children While Israelis Cheer
The Guardian offers this account of hurricane John's mortal sin in a story entitled "Unguarded comments suggest Kerry frustration at civiliantoll in Gaza" from which I excerpt:
The secretary of state, John Kerry, on Sunday appeared to criticise Israel’s claims about the targeted scope of its attacks on Gaza, as a open microphone caught him talking to an aide ahead of a TV interview.
“It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation, it’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Kerry, who was appearing on Fox News Sunday as part of a tour of all five main US talkshows, said to an aide on the phone, in a frustrated tone.
It was not the first time Kerry's private criticisms of Israeli policy have emerged in public. In April, the Daily Beast reported that he had warned a closed door meeting of world leaders that Israel could become an “apartheid state” if a two-state solution was not found and that if peace talks failed there could be a resumption of Palestinian violence against Israeli citizens.
Israel has launched air strikes, artillery fire and a ground operation in Gaza. According to health officials in the Palestinian territory, 340 people have been killed, nearly 2,400 wounded and tens of thousands displaced in 12 days of fighting.
Ahead of his interview with Fox News Sunday, Kerry said: “We’ve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”
In his interview on CNN's State of the Union, Kerry said President Barack Obama would ask him to go to the Middle East soon to aid in efforts to secure a ceasefire.
Earlier, speaking on CNN, the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, said Israel’s response to rocket attacks from Gaza had been “very measured and trying to be as pinpointed as we can”.
“What choice do we have?” Netanyahu said. “We have to protect ourselves. We try to target the rocketeers, we do. And all civilian casualties are not intended by us but actually intended by Hamas who want to pile up as many civilian dead as they can because somebody said they use telegenically dead Palestinians for the cause. They want the more dead the better.”
The Fox host Chris Wallace confronted Kerry about his comments and asked if he was implying that the Israeli government had gone too far in its Gaza operations.
Kerry said Israel had a right to defend itself but stood by his comments.
Obama has to be pulling out what remains of his rapidly graying hair over his top diplomat's latest fuck-up and especially now right when he is ready to avenge the infliction of injury upon his massive ego inflicted by Putin by pinning the blame for MH17 on him. Now he is going to have to deal with the bleating of the pigs about his secret Muslim agenda and underlying hate for Jews - hell, the Republicans may even drag out old tapes of Reverend Wright to run during the mid-terms against Democrats. Obama really should demand Kerry's resignation - not for the little morsel of truth that accidentally slipped out today but for his ongoing incompetence in managing foreign policy which over the last year has been as fucked up as it was at just about any time during the Bushreich with the exception of the Abu Ghraib Prison torture pictures getting out to the public. Then Obama should do the right thing and resign himself but only after issuing one last executive order cutting off ALL US military and economic aid to Israel.
