Kerry: U.S. Taped Moscow’s Calls to Its Ukraine Spies
The Daily Beast ^ | 04.29.14 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 04/29/2014 5:18:47 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

The secretary of state claimed in a private meeting that the U.S. intelligence community has recordings of pro-Russian forces being managed by government handlers in Moscow.

The United States has proof that the Russian government in Moscow is running a network of spies inside eastern Ukraine because the U.S. government has recordings of their conversations, Secretary of State John Kerry said in a closed-door meeting Friday.

IOW: You’re spying! I can prove it, because I’ve been spying on you.

And he’s admitting this publicly? What does this do to our ability to gather information in future - and/or to our sources? (Realistically, will anybody on planet Earth ever trust us again after these last five or six years especially? )

Joe Biden (VP)and John Kerry (SecState) make me pray regularly that nothing happens to OBama.

Good question.

Somebody had a plan to tape Sterling....and no one is raising that question ...what was the effect to be?

Clippers are now a valuable property....

Who was that guy that just bought the GS Warriors.?

And we’re probably still taping Merkel....and Brazil...and more than likely....we’ve stopped absolutely nothing.

Thanks, John Kerry, for sharing.

Your motor mouth is a threat to the nation, deserving a forced resignation.

Your wits are long lost in the winds of the sound and your needy compulsion to be seen as heroic dissolves in your mouth.

Men have been discharged for less than what your regular buffoonery regurgitates. Aren’t you just so special? Blech.

This has been bugging me all day. We "taped" them? I can see we "recorded" them, we "intercepted transmissions", we "tapped" their lines or "sniffed" their traffic; but we "taped" them? I can't remember the last time I used that phrase. I'm not trying to get all tin foil here. We probably do know what is going on rather well but Kerry and his ilk are liars and to know them, you have to parse their language.

"We taped them"...I bet it is seared into his memory. (In other words Kerry has no f'ing idea what is going on)

....”Kerry should keep his mouth shut”....

He can’t...he wants to be the glory man of the moment..even over Obama and despite him...same with airhead Biden....neither are smart enough to handle what is going on on the world stage..and they are too full of themselves to take advise from those of better minds.

Backpeddling now on his Israel “apartheid state” comment, after the cat is out of the bag, is his usual cover...doesn’t work. Too late.

But to be fair, has NSA tapped our calls to our spies?

Only because they tape everybody. So no brownie points.

Kerry need to retire to France. Better yet, he needs to be cast adrift in the middle of the Atlantic in a swift boat and used for target practice.

Well, like most of his claims from Vietnam, I think he saw it on an old TV show.

Granted, I “tape” things too, but then I am not collecting gigabytes of phone messages, either.

I was gonna say Kerry’s a better leaker than Snowden, but then I thought the Russians aren’t stupid enough to believe that all electronics are recorded.

Kerry is a genius....in the warped, self important, clueless world he lives in.

I’m convinced he thinks he’s the smartest guy in the room/world.
