John Kerry is in the region contradicting himself as he plods along.
JFK had this to say on Friday in a conference call:
Kerry, in a teleconference Friday from Amman, Jordan, was careful to insist he was not in the Middle East to contradict Bush administration policy in any way. But Congress does have its own interests in the region.
“The administration has their position, and it’s not my job at this point – from here particularly – to make comments about their policy,” Kerry said. “They have their position as the executive branch and we have our position as a separate, co-equal branch of government.”
But, this is what Kerry said to Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak on Thursday, via The Tehran Times:
Kerry met Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and said they discussed Iraq as well as the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. “I have always believed that the Middle East peace process is the critical issue of the region, and it has not been focused on for the past 6-7 years adequately,” the Massachusetts Democrat told reporters after meeting Mubarak.
