Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that Secretary of State John Kerry’s swipe at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu -- citing Bibi’s support of the war in Iraq -- during a Congressional hearing was unwarranted and “rather rich.”
“That was in 2003. Netanyahu did not become prime minister until six years later,” Krauthammer said. “So here we have an opposition politician in a country three thousand miles away, while at the same time, John Kerry himself was in a position of influence, he was a senator, he supported the war, he voted for the war… So perhaps by Kerry's own logic, we ought to be questioning his judgment.”
Moreover, Krauthammer says Kerry’s own job performance is not exactly sterling.
“Two conferences in Geneva about the Syrian war that have all dissolved in disarray. [Kerry] tried to get negotiations with Israel and the Palestinians at a point everyone knew it would not succeed. Of course it collapsed, and it helped precipitate the Gaza war,” he said. “And lastly, he has spent the last year and a half chasing Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, around Europe with absolutely zero success, and getting played by the Russians on Ukraine.
