Posted on 08/18/2013 2:30:38 AM PDT by Olog-hai
Speaking Thursday at a joint appearance with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that there were many al Qaeda leaders now operating in Syriawhere President Barack Obama decided two months ago to provide military support to rebel forces fighting alongside al Qaeda to overthrow the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Asad.
Asad is a member of the Alawite sect, which is a derivative of Shiite Islam; the Syrian rebels are predominantly Sunni, and al Qaeda is Sunni.
In June, six months after his administration designated the Nusra Front an al Qaeda alias and terrorist group, President Obama decided to provide military support to the Syrian opposition.

Kerry is too old to carry duplicity’s water.
They are like flies and maggots attracted to all of the “crap” going on in Syria.
How did he command a boat during Vietnam? How did he survive?
Just looking at him reminds me of the face and IQ of Herman Munster (Fred Gwynn?) from the classic 60’s TV show the Munsters...
Simple. The Peter Principle.
And they arent intelligent to begin with. Much the contrary.
“Can someone please explain to me how a supposedly intelligent individual gets to these incredible positions of power and decision-making when they (and their associates in the State Dept.) are complete imbeciles? Please? Somebody? Anybody?”
It’s almost like there is no communications, briefings or internal memos. Hell, his predecessor should have given him a heads up about something. Ignorance is bliss, and John just wants to be a happy guy.
And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. Yisheyah 3:4
(T)he Most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever He will, and setteth up over it the lowest of men. Daniyel 4:17
True, accurate and to the point, thanks.
Plenty of communication. None being relevant to the issues at hand at any given time. Thus we see March madness receive all sorts of attention while ‘employment’ madness receives none.
Then consider that anything not agreeing with or outright conflicting with agendas are ignored or suppressed to the exclusion of all else.
They are “intelligent” simply by declaring themselves Liberals. That’s what Liberals believe. They are superior to all intelligent life. God gave Man dominion over the Animal Kingdom. Liberals gave themselves Dominion over Humans, and appointed themselves the protector of the Negro.

“His predecessor” - SHRILLIARY???, “Heads up”??
John is happy - US Foreign (and Domestic) poicy in tatters and John is out there, windsurfing while BHO golfs.
The only thing is that while Peter says ‘To ones level of incompetence and no further”, they use a modified version in which the person incompetent is then promoted yet higher. Rinse and repeat. No one will accept responsibility for promoting the idiot do they further promote him in the hope he will do well there.
The other answer is simple everyday payback.
If these things come to pass then we have a long way to go downwards yet. Scary and relevant. No doubt BHO is destroying US hegemony and respect.
A lot of Ketchup money!
“Negro”? How about the “Savior” instead?
Kerry does look happy windsurfing. Problems, what problems?
Alfred E. Newman ‘What me worry’ at State or in the WH? Which place?
“How did he command a boat during Vietnam? How did he survive?”
As I recall Kerry was only in Vietnam for 4 months, just long enough to get tour credit, and was “injured” 3 times during that, probably his “injuries” had him on limited duty for weeks
That and the fact he was a JR officer and had handlers above him and probably a competent enlisted crew that really ran the boat
Didn’t the Swifties write a book that exposed Kerry as a POS?
He’s in wind capable of moving a human body...
He’s in a lake...
And his hair is perfectly in place in every picture.
The reason you feel confused is because you assume Kerry is trying to advance the interests of the American people. If you assume he and his superiors are traitors with a different agenda, then it all makes sense.
Well....he did figure out the delay tactics by the Paris US-negotiation team to end the Vietnam War, and even tried to point this out.
I don’t think there is anybody bright enough to figure out this Syria or Egyptian mess.
Yes, the “Swifties” did indeed.
Good point, now it makes sense. Hard to shake off the concept that they care about America less than lining their pockets...and keeping their deadly agendas.
You are too kind.....
The north end of a south bound Camel is better.
“Many al-Qaeda now operating in Syria”
Remember how the administration tried to mollify us into thinking these were “rebels” with whom we could do business? Remember McCain’s “bro” pics with the terrorists he went there to meet?
What say McQueeg, Graham and the rest of the neocons who were oh-so-earnest in their urgings for us to arm those animals???
Is there NO ONE in DC or the Pentagon that remembers AND cares?
Kerry and a horse walk into a bar
The bartender looks at them and says: “So, why the long faces?”
I use Isaiah 3 a LOT these days
The Egyptian military JUST arrested the brother of al Qaeda mastermind of this attack(Ayman Al Zawahiri):
Mohammed al Zawahiri, key player in the MB and on the Morsi team, picked up in Giza this week
Mohammed al Zawahiri: Just another one of those wacky al Zawahiri boys, walkin’ the streets of Cairo, jivin’ with the “brothers”, talking smack about jihad with his peeps in the Morsi “Jews are apes and pigs” govt, collecting a paycheck for his work as head of the “ultra conservative” Jihadi Salafist movement
Obama’s crack national security and intelligence agencies can’t find Ayman al Zawahiri for 12 years but the Egyptian military picks up his bro in Giza for jaywalking?
Operating in Syria and paid by Kerry&Co.
A traitorous, elitist POS connected to the United States government? Is it any wonder that there is a foreign and a domestic mess?
Because they do not report to Jarret.
before he was formally educated, he likely was intelligent. After years of learning how to play the game, we are looking at an individual whose ambitions resulted in nothing more than an app of political correctness in pursuit of power, ie no ability to reason or use common sense
Kerry has been a “wannabe” for decades. His anti-war platitudes gave him the springboard to be somebody and while it worked out well for him financially and politically, it was a disaster for the nation and continues to be so, especially under the current resident of the WH.
What I do is ignore what they say, watch what they do, and try to figure out the real agenda from what they’re really advancing.
