After strike deal on Syria, Kerry says him calling it impossible was 'diplomacy'
Published September 14, 2013 FoxNews.com
Secretary of State John Kerry said Saturday, after reaching a tentative agreement with Russia to disarm Syria of chemical weapons, that his earlier statement about the impossibility of such a plan was in fact the language of diplomacy.
I purposefully made the statements, Kerry said in Geneva, Switzerland, after reaching the framework of an agreement with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. And I did indeed say it was impossible and [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] won't do it, even as I hoped it would be possible and wanted him to do it. And the language of diplomacy sometimes requires that you put things to the test, and we did.

"I meant to do that", Peewee Herman said.
He was for the impossibility before he was against it.
Yeah that was no more diplomacy on Kerry’s part than his Purple Hearts being legitimate. I think the last time Kerry said what he really meant was when he called American soldiers murderers and rapists.
What an a**. We're not stupid!!
As Lavrov pointed out, at some point he just needs to shut up.
Let’s see...if I say it’s impossible, Putin will jump at the chance to get a weapons deal from his BBF. P>Be careful John....nothing has been signed yet!!
How conVEEENient for the Secretary!
Is that nuanced enough ya John F’N?
“diplomacy” = lying
Put some ketchup on it. It will taste different.
P.T. Barnum was right.
I purposefully made the statements, Kerry said
“I meant to do that”, Peewee Herman said.
