State Dept. Releases Readout of 'Kerry Calls,' Datelined 'Washington, DC' Daniel Halper July 6, 2013 6:14 PM
Secretary of State John Kerry has received some criticism for going yachting as the Egyptian leader was going overthrown. But the State Department, which first insisted that Kerry wasn't even on his boat, is now insisting that the secretary of state has been working hard -- and they've just now released a readout of "Kerry Calls," with a "Washington, DC" dateline.
"Over the days since the unrest in Egypt intensified, Secretary Kerry has been in constant contact with the national security team, regional partners, and his counterparts. In addition to participating in a secure call with the National Security Council today to review the very fluid situation in Egypt, he has been in hourly touch with Ambassador Patterson and in the last two days he has also spoken with Mohamed Elbaradei, Qatari Foreign Minister al-Attiyah, Omani Sultan Qaboos, Emirati Foreign Minister bin Zayed, Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal and Turkish Foreign Minister Davutoglu," the readout claims.
"In all these calls with his counterparts, Secretary Kerry reiterated the call for the violence in Egypt to cease and for all parties -- the Muslim Brotherhood, opposition, and military -- to ensure that those expressing their views do so peacefully. Secretary Kerry also reaffirmed U.S. support for democracy and the protection of universal human rights for all Egyptians, reform that meets the legitimate aspirations of the people, and respect for the rule of law. He stressed that the United States wants to see Egypt's civilian transition succeed, and that the United States will do all it can to help encourage that effort."
The "Media Note" announcing the call comes from the "Office of the Spokesperson" at the State Department and is datelined "Washington, DC."
Ask the NSA. They should have all of them recorded if he really made them.
As much as I hate Kerry I do have to say that if you have to change your boating plans because crap happened in the ME you prolly otta sell the boat.
The very first questions asked of the USD were answered with lies.
What makes these any different? Not a damn thing.
Does Kerry get as drunk as Hillary? Can you imagine a phone call from her after she had a snoot full?
“Problems? Ya think YOU got problems? My damn whiskey bottle is almost empty. THAT is a problem! Do you know I was named after a mountain climber? What the hell was his name? I’ve dodged sniper bullets....real sniper bullets. Just like this. (Clunk!) Crap! I fell down again. AND I spilled the rest of my drink. I coulda been somebody! I coulda been a fender.....I mean contender. Nope. I think I was right the first time. I coulda been a fender.....on a 83 Buick Skylark. I’d a been a pretty car. Maybe a Pontiac wide track.”
Zero can be on his sat phone, whilst his foresome awaits his putt!;
J. F’n Kerry can be on his sat phone after he shouts “hard-a-lee” and the electric winches complete the tack.;
Hilloree can be standing at the bar with Huma, awaiting a refill, whilst talking to Zer0;
Geitner could be on the floor of the NY stock exchange, whilst ordering the paeans to deliver the Romney tax returns!
Ain't technology wonderful??
The world is probably safer with Frenchy on his yacht than at his desk.
Yeah, I’m OK with it.
any ten year old coulds typed that list
Why do we need anyone in DC - just let ‘em all ‘dial it in.”
Kerry and Obama have done the impossible. They have screwed it up so badly that now BOTH sides blame us. So much for all that BS about the world respecting us again.
If they would lie on the little things, you have to wonder what other big lies they’ve told
