We all remember Secretary of State John Kerry lying through this teeth last summer, when he swore that US intelligence reports proving that Syria used chemical weapons in Ghouta were “as clear as they are compelling.” However, the US administration never provided any proof of Syria government responsibility and now we know why: there was none.
Kerry was all bluster and bluff, and when that became obvious his boss was forced to back down from plans to bomb Syria.
Well Kerry is back at it again. Bluster and bluff about “proof” while simultaneously desperately seeking evidence.
Credit Moon of Alabama blog for noticing this one:
Here is John Kerry on April 8, swearing that the Russians were behind the unrest in eastern Ukraine:
“No one should be fooled — and believe me, no one is fooled — by what could potentially be a contrived pretext for military intervention just as we saw in Crimea. It is clear that Russian special forces and agents have been the catalysts behind the chaos of the last 24 hours.”
Here is John Kerry two months later meeting with newly-elected Petro Poroshenko in Ukraine:
Secretary of State John Kerry also spent time talking with Mr. Poroshenko, privately urging him to provide evidence of Russian involvement with separatists with which to confront Russian officials.
John Kerry is a liar.
