John Kerry: The Question of Women Driving Is “Best Left” to Saudi Officials (Video)

Another brave move by the Obama administration.
Secretary of State John Kerry told reporters in Saudi Arabia that the question of women driving is “best left” to the Saudis.

Breitbart reported:

On Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry met with Saudi King Abdullah to try and warm relations between the two countries. “A true relationship between friends is based on sincerity, candor and frankness,” said Prince Saudi al-Faisal, the Saudi foreign minister, after the meeting.

But Kerry certainly wasn’t frank about Saudi Arabia’s brutal treatment of women; according to The New York Times, “Wary of inflaming Saudi sensitivities, Mr. Kerry sidestepped a reporter’s question about whether Saudi women should be allowed to drive, casting the debate as one ‘best left to Saudi Arabia.’”
