Thank you for this," Kerry said. He asked for the boy's address, and al-Nabulsi gave him his mobile number.
This scene was a set-up; I'd bet any amount on it. Furthermore, the Bush administration continues to demonstrate a dangerous incompetence in media and PR matters by allowing these types of stunts by political opponents.
