Kerry Admits Obama’s Syria Policy Is Failing

U.S. Secretary of State John "Apartheid" is too smart to use the "A" word when referring to Israel, or isn't he?

Secretary of State John Kerry has lost faith in his own administration’s Syria policy, he told fifteen U.S. Congressmen in a private, off-the-record meeting, according to two of the senators who were in the room, Josh Rogin reported for The Daily Beast.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who attended Kerry’s briefing, said that Kerry “acknowledged that the chemical weapons [plan] is being slow rolled, the Russians continue to supply arms, we are at a point now where we are going to have to change our strategy.”

“He openly talked about supporting arming the rebels. He openly talked about forming a coalition against al Qaeda because it’s a direct threat,” Graham continued.

Sens. Graham and John McCain told The Daily Beast, The Washington Post, and Bloomberg they agreed with Kerry that the time had come for the United States to drastically alter its approach to the Syrian civil war.

McCain and Graham also said they share Kerry’s assessment that the U.S. must take steps to address the growing al Qaeda presence in Syria, which Clapper said now amounts to over 26,000 extremists on Syrian soil.

But Fred Hiatt, writing for the Washington Post, reported that Kerry’s spokeswoman, Jennifer Psaki, denied that her boss raised the prospect of lethal assistance for the rebels. “This is a case of members projecting what they want to hear and not stating the accurate facts of what was discussed,” she said.

  1. John K: all of the policies of this W.H. are ALL failing and you are part of those failures.

  2. CAN’T BE NICE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE RAISED HATING AMERICA AND ISRAEL AND EXPECT THEM TO HELP US OUT !!! JUST DON’T WORK. KEEP A STRONG MILITARY IS THE ONLY WAY AND USE IT WHEN NEEDED !!! GOD BLESS

  3. Unite in prayer, and pray that God will remove obama. God is not constrained by any obstacle, and He can do it whenever and however He pleases.
    And give God the credit for it.

  4. Donkey Jaw is better at peddling ketchup!

  5. Kerry is a failure at everything he does, the only way he got to be a Senator was marrying a dead mans rich wife after a long set up. He lied about Vietnam, conspired with his Nations enemies during a war, and bragged about it. Now he runs around trying to help his lord and master the boy king destroy everything good about America and the American way of life. Kerry is a self created failure who tries to plot and take advantage of circumstance, He is truly obamas boy.

  6. At least this administration is consistent…..their failure rate is 100 percent…..and the part that really amazes me is they got a second term…….you ****ing idiots ( Democrats ) voted for this.

  7. Jean Perles says:

    KERRY SHAME ON YOU………….THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A PALESTINIAN PEOPLE! THEY HAVE NO RIGHTS TO THE HOMELAND OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE
    JERUSALEM, CAPITAL ETERNELLE ET INDIVISIBLE DE L’ETAT D’ ISRAEL

  8. Obama/Kerry the "ketchup men" wants to save the world, I am sure he doesn't know about Midle East hystory, spetial the Persian Byzantine time and the conquest of the muslims to the Persian, now is happening again between Arab Sunnies and Shiites, this war continuos today with the start in the Syrian civil war, and who knows how long will take it and who will win, at the end is a Persian (Iran) Arab war.
