State Department admits Kerry was on yacht day of Egypt coup
Posted by CNN Chief Washington Correspondent Jake Tapper
(CNN) - After the emergence of photographs showing Secretary of State John Kerry on his 76-foot yacht Isabel on Nantucket Sound on Thursday, the State Department issued an embarrassing correction Friday morning, back-tracking and acknowledging that the Secretary was in fact on the yacht on Wednesday, the day the Egyptian military staged a coup against democratically-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.
Originally, State Department officials were quick to deny a Wednesday tweet from CBS News Mosheh Oinounou that: A @CBSThisMorning producer just spotted Secretary of State Kerry on yacht in the Nantucket Boat Basin. No response when she shouted Morsi.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki issued a statement Wednesday saying any report or tweet that he was on a boat is completely inaccurate.

We have a government full of Marxist Progressives who are more into the Power/Social/Status aspects of their jobs than actually doing the job.
This is bad because they are incompetent, lazy and feckless which is damaging to our country.
On the other hand, these same traits preclude them from implementing their policies and any effective way so they are self limited when it comes to implementing their agenda.
These are not people who have a lot of practical job experience and I don’t think Kerry or many others have actually worked a day in their lives.
It went well beyond lying; they were demanding a retraction from the CBS reporter who reported it. John Effin Kerry is one arrogant POS.
Agreed. The government is run by Valerie Jarrett and the Center for American Progress. Obama, Kerry, et al are mere puppets.
And don’t forget George Soros.
My in-laws are rabid Obama supporters. They foam at the mouth if you dare criticize Obama, Kerry and especially HILLARY!
WHERE is the torpedo with that yacht’s name on it?
Doesn’t even have to be an expensive one.
Don’t forget that if we speak badly of any dim that we cost ourselves votes.
Offcourse, he also declines to pay the higher voluntary tax rate in MA as well.
He must not be patriotic or a racist, not sure which.
Yup, caught in the act again. Now where was our CIC on the night 4 Americans were murdered in Benghazi?
That boat was the “Scaramouche” if I recall.
That’s what I thought.
What became of it ?
Zero said he would bring Hope and Change. Now we know what he meant.
When they screw up they “hope” no one finds out and when they are caught they “change” the story.
My feelings exactly.
“Let them eat caviar!”
Country club douchebags running this country into the ground in the name of red diaper doper baby Marxist dreams.
” was that the same yacht they he tried to fraudulently register in rhode island to avoid the Massachusetts excise taxes?”
