Skip to comments.John Kerry Was For Assad Before He Was Against Him

Syria: A commander in chief who ignored the first 100,000 deaths in Syria sends his secretary of state to defend the urgency of a delayed attack with unneeded congressional approval against a "Hitler" Kerry dined with.
Then-Sen. Kerry must have been one of the people then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had in mind when, on CBS' "Face The Nation" in 2011, she said, without disputing the assessment:
"Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to Syria in recent months have said they believe he (dictator Bashar Assad) is a reformer."
Certainly Kerry shared that assessment, speaking with high praise of Assad at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in 2011.
"So my judgment is that Syria will move," he said. "Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States and the West, and economic opportunity that comes with it and the participation that comes with it."
Kerry praised Assad later in 2011 as being a "very generous" man.
While he was still a senator, now-Secretary of State Kerry casually dined with Assad in 2009, probably asking the son of his equally murderous predecessor, Hafez Assad, to pass the salt.
For his part, Assad said in 2010, "I trust Sen. Kerry, and I think he's genuine . . . I met him five times."
In February 2009, Kerry led a delegation to engage Syria. Agence France-Presse followed up with a report after the visit stating Kerry believes "Syria is an essential player in bringing peace and stability to the region."

Well, not quite. McCain, Graham and now Boehner and Cantor are with their buddy Obummer.
BOMBS FOR BARACK!
And if you don’t like it, you muss be a RASSISS!
” BOMBS FOR BARACK!
And if you dont like it, you muss be a RASSISS!”
Boehner: “ I not RASSIS !”
My bet is that the Rebels did it hoping to get exactly what is happening right now, the USA coming in to take out Assad for them.
"Yesss...yesss...Mister Kurry....enough with the Vietnam stories already."
With the Democrats, it all depends on the money.
What the heck was Kerry’s wife sitting at the hearing nodding her head for? This is creepy stuff going on.
that just means he paid for dinner.
Wonder if the Syrians have excise tax on yachts.
I don’t doubt that in the least, Lurch looks out for Lurch.
Kerry and McCain talk like they are drunk. Kerry’s wife did not look well today but she nodded her head as if she were a robot.
All evidence and common sense point to exactly that. Moreover, the next bet is that the Regime KNOWS the Rebels/AQ set this up...and were in on the False Flag Op.
This is a Lose-Lose for the Dems, McQueeg, and any fools who support this sloppy script and charade.
That's just the Qaaludes and champagne.

The Kerrys have some bad botox or something.
“So my judgment is that Syria will move,” he said. “Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States and the West, and economic opportunity that comes with it and the participation that comes with it.”
Kerry was a little off on his prediction. lol
Why do people elect no nothing morons like him?
She had a seizure on Nantucket in July. The Coast Guard, Massachusetts State Police and Girl Scouts scrambled all their resources to get her over to Mass. General Hospital in Boston. She seems to be doing okay. Even the Boston Globe said that seizures can be “caused by alcohol comsumption”. Dja think?
Yup, little old Asma and her billion dollar Swiss bank account are looking sweeter all the time. Lurch will probably go back to France and never set foot in the U.S. again if he can collect that honeypot.
As to his wife, Kerry is so well versed in lying, "HONEY, YOU LOOK MAHVA-LOUS!!" is seared into her mind, so it's ALL good.

John Effing Kerry says what he needs to say to stay in the good graces of whomever he is in bed with!
IOW, he is an adept practicioner of the art of “situational” speech, and does not have original ideas that contribute to the discussion. Totally self-aggrandizing behavior and speech.
NOTE: Hillary said that with a straight face.
Kerry himself had high praise for Assad at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace in 2011. "So my judgment is that Syria will move forward," Kerry pontificated.
The sap-happy liberal continued: "Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States and the West, and economic opportunity that comes with it and the participation that comes with it." Kerry praised Assad as being a "very generous" man.
WISH I HADN'TA SAID THAT--In 2010 Assad says he "trusts" Kerry. I think he's genuine . . . I met him five times."
FAST FORWARD TO 2013---now-Secy of State Kerry turns tail---derides Assad as a two-bit dictator who will continue to act with impunity......
(Mmmmmmmm.....Kerry got mixed up. The "two-bit dictator who acts w/ impunity" is how Kerry refers to Ohaha as his butler pours chilled Crystal.)
THAT'S A LAUGH COMING FROM A VIETNAM PEACENIK Kerry's latest pronouncement: those who "object" to bombing Syria will be held responsible for future atrocities.
In the cartoonish "Where's Waldo" world of Ohaha, that
translates into "Kerry's responsible for current Syrian
atrocities b/c he sucked-up to Assad a few years ago."
