Good Grief… John Kerry Makes Up Imaginary Country During First International Tour (Video)

Oh, good grief.
Secretary of State John Kerry made up an imaginary country during his first overseas trip as America’s top diplomat.
Kerry pushed for reform in ‘Kyrzakhstan’ when he meant the country of ‘Kyrgyzstan.’

The Daily Caller reported:
You probably haven’t heard of Kyrzakhstan, but it’s one of the most dangerous places on Earth. It’s so perilous that you can’t find it on any map. It’s just that scary.
The Telegraph:

John Kerry has suffered his first gaffe as the new US secretary of state, inventing the nation of ‘Kyrzakhstan’…

The newly minted diplomat was referring to Kyrgyzstan, a poor, landlocked nation of 5.5 million, which he appeared to confuse with its resource-rich neighbour to the north, Kazakhstan…

Mr Kerry’s flub was all the more awkward, because Kyrgyzstan is a key ally in the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan and a major recipient of US aid, which totalled $41 million (£27 million) in 2011.
