Say no to more Kerry

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - NEL­SON MARANS New York

The good news about John Kerry is that he is no longer sec­re­tary of State (“John Kerry says Trump ‘doesn’t know what he’s talk­ing about’ on Iran deal,” Web, Sept. 2). The bad news is that he has again be­come in­volved in pol­i­tics, sup­port­ing what many con­sider to be his poor­est de­ci­sions while in of­fice.

The his­tory of his ten­ure in the State Depart­ment, along with other de­ci­sions of his, con­sisted of a deeply flawed Ira­nian nu­clear deal and his avid sup­port of Pales­tinian Au­thor­ity Pres­i­dent Mah­moud Ab­bas, cou­pled with a con­tin­u­ous stream of crit­i­cism of Is­rael when deal­ing with a pos­si­ble ac­cord be­tween the Jewish state and the Pales­tini­ans.

Cer­tainly Mr. Kerry should be proud of es­tab­lish­ing record travel miles dur­ing his term in of­fice, but he has no cause to be proud of his failed for­eign poli­cies, par­tic­u­larly when deal­ing with dic­ta­tor­ships.

Un­for­tu­nately, with a slim num­ber of ac­cept­able can­di­dates put forth by the Democratic Party, his res­ur­rec­tion may oc­cur — to the detri­ment of our for­eign pol­icy.
