America's new top diplomat is already facing trouble and confusion as he begins a two-week trip whose major focus is on coalescing international action on Syria.
With John Kerry in London Monday on the first leg of his nine-country tour of Europe and the Middle East, administration officials were scrambling to salvage a planned meeting between the new U.S. secretary of state and the leaders of the Syrian opposition coalition scheduled for Thursday.
Following a Monday meeting in London with British Foreign Secretary William Hague, Kerry condemned the Syrian regime's use of rockets to attack civilians in Aleppo but declined to specify any of the steps he suggested earlier this month the Obama administration is "evaluating" to change the situation on the ground in Syria. He downplayed the notion that any new American initiatives would be unveiled at the upcoming Friends of Syria meeting in Italy.
"Now, let me make clear, we will continue to work closely with our British allies to address the growing humanitarian crisis, and to support the Syrian Opposition Council. We are coordinating with the Syrian opposition coalition, we're coordinating with the U.N. and with others in order to help get relief to the victims who need that help," Kerry said.

This just in, Secretary of State John Kerry was shown enthusiastic support...
on his first foreign trip by--
Vietman War Veterans... in Hanoi... --
Korean War Veterans... in Pyongyang... --
Afghan War Veterans... in Moscow... --
And also by White Flag Bearing War Veterans... in Paris... --
Upon the Secretary's return home... he said:
"Keep those baby killing... terrorists away... from me!"
And the President came... to welcome him home--
"Way to go, John. I... couldn't have done better myself!"
I'd condemn this as a chicken joke... but Hagel is now at Defense!
