He just visited Netanyahu.

Why didn’t he just spit in his face when they met.

Why wait and stab him in the back when he visits the Turks.

Kerry is an idiot. A Traitor, and anti-American POS.

I have no sympathy for those who die supporting terrorists. Whether the flotilla or Rachel Corrie, flat as a pancake is a natural consequence of their stupid and evil choices.

The ones on the flotilla were themselves actual terrorists, IIRC.

Maybe he's expressing sympathy for the men who killed our brave Americans in Benghazi - the killers got their hands all bloody after all ...That's soooooo sad....
