You don't think the Egyptian government was trying to send a message, do you?
Kerry flew to Tel Aviv from Cairo, where he met Tuesday with Egypts president and other high-level officials.
An unusual screening process occurred involving Kerry and his State Department team as they were subjected to a metal detector before meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at the Egyptian presidential palace.
Reuters reports that Kerry and his aides were checked with a metal detector. Security personnel reportedly raised a handheld metal-detector wand to Kerrys suit jacket before waving him through.
Kerrys aides were also subjected to the handheld wand and were told to walk through a metal detector.
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Twitter that they are focused on trying to reach a cease-fire agreement.
@JohnKerry and team are focused on working with Egyptians on a ceasefire, not on whether we went through security this afternoon, she tweeted.
Psaki would say something like that because subjecting the US secretary of state to security screening may be unprecedented, and is certainly a humiliation of the first order. It demonstrates just how badly US relations with the Egyptian military government have deteriorated. Obama's support for the Muslim Brotherhood, his dalliance with Iran, and his confused policy in Syria have combined to cause Egypt to doubt that America can be relied upon.
I would cheer the fact that Kerry has been humiliated except the humiliation is also ours. Once again, the Obama administration's policies have illuminated how the rest of the world sees America. And it isn't a pretty picture.

How does it feel?
One cannot humiliate slime mold.
He has already humiliated himself by uttering his ignorance of Climate Science
Pity there wasn’t an anal probe. They might have found his brain.
should have preformed a cavity search , you never know what’s up there
He has humiliated himself many times. For years.
It is a shame they didn’t decide to do a body cavity search.
What happened to diplomatic immunity? Why did Kerry cave into this? Why didn't he stand his ground and assert his immunity as our top diplomat?
Now, he's just as common as any airline traveler at an airport.
Stupid move on Kerry's part.
I suspect the Egyptians essentially told Kerry to “lead, follow, or get out of the way.”
“Reuters reports that Kerry and his aides were checked with a metal detector. Security personnel reportedly raised a handheld metal-detector wand to Kerrys suit jacket before waving him through.”
This is a HUGE diplomatic insult, and the Egyptians are making it very clear that they don’t trust Kerry.
Had this happened under Bush, it would have already been breaking news an the Alphabet networks, with the Daily Show and the Late-Night Comics going crazy over it.
Under Obama? Utter silence.....
Did it detect the rice “shrapnel” in his butt?
“Pity there wasnt an anal probe”
A monumental task.
Obama really is a miracle worker. His diplomacy has left every faction in Egypt hating us. Hey, that takes real talent.
You would think that after the photos of him wearing the bunny suit, nothing would be considered humiliating for him anymore.
It still exists.
Why did Kerry cave into this? Why didn't he stand his ground and assert his immunity as our top diplomat?
He's a coward and a fool.
-—— they were subjected to a metal detector——
Now that’s funny.
The USA wasn’t disrespected, Barack Obama the black community organizer was disrespected ........ big time!
Foreign ministers across the globe are saying “OMG!” then rolling the floor laughing their asses off.
Remember, by Kerry’s admission, he has shrapnel in his leg that sets off metal detectors. He picked it up in combat in Viet Nam, which was a surprise to me, who knew that he was there?
