The Obama administration sees the two U.S. allies as anchors of stability in a Middle East amid Syria's civil war, Arab Spring political upheavals and the threat posed by Iran's nuclear program.

In Istanbul on the first leg of a 10-day overseas trip, Kerry met with Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu with the aim of firming up the rapprochement between Turkey and Israel that President Barack Obama revived during a visit to Israel state last month.

Kerry should begin crocheting a sampler of all the heads of state who have laughed in his face. It’ll be king sized.

When Henry Kissinger spoke, world leaders paused & they listened.

Now we are represented by this tall glass of water.
