The Boston Globe reported on Friday that former Secretary of State JOhn Kerry has been meeting with his Iranian counterparts in an attempt to salvage the Iranian nuclear deal — an agreement that president Trump is in the process of terminating.
The Globe has a humorous manner in describing this perfidy, calling it a
The Globe humorously characterizes Kerry’s efforts at undermining the foreign policy goals of the Trump Administration, “a quiet lobbying campaign.”
“Kerry supporters see in this campaign some of his trademark traits, especially his unflagging energy even in the face of potential failure. Critics see something else, a former office holder working with foreign officials to potentially undermine the policy aims of a current administration”
Other Kerry critics also see some of “trademark traits” on display:
Seth LIpsky is merciless in describing Kerry’s treachery and reminds us that his conniving with Iran is just the latest example of his long history of consorting with foreign governments in an attempt to undermine United States foreign policy:
“This has been Mr. Kerry’s modus operandi since, as a young lieutenant just and in the middle of a war, he began freelancing foreign policy. Back then, he snuck off to Paris and met with, among others, representatives of our active wartime enemy, the Viet Cong. Then he came back to America and plumped for their talking points. Later, he testified against American troops before the Senator Foreign Relations committee.
That’s how Mr. Kerry’s career was launched. Now he’s using the same modus operandi to treat with Mr. Zarif to save a deal that even the New York Times concedes was opposed “overwhelmingly” by the United States Congress. And that was tested in the recent election. It pitted, in Hillary Clinton, a one-time state secretary who supported the articles of appeasement with Iran. Mr. Trump opposed the deal and threatened to tear it up.”
This is truly astonishing. We are witnessing a former Secretary of State actively seeking, through contact with a foreign power, to salvage an agreement which he personally helped craft in his capacity as a representative of president Obama. This simply enhances and lends credibility to the “deep state” narrative.
How else can one describe Kerry’s attempts other than as “collusion?”
