Oh my! Kerry was negotiating with Iran while stil a Senator!

US Secretary of State John FN Kerry was negotiating with Iran before he became Secretary of State, while he was still a Senator.
BEHIND THE CURTAIN – Oman as host for secret Iran talks dates back to Secretary Kerry’s days in Senate (including an unusual Senate partnership with the administration), per a senior administration official: “In 2011, [Senate Foreign Relations] Chairman Kerry began a relationship with the Omanis, who had been integral to persuading Iran to release the American hikers. Oman was interested in helping to facilitate dialogue between the U.S. and Iran. He kept the White House fully informed of his contacts with the Omanis and had regular meetings with them about it. On December 8, 2011, he secretly, unannounced went to Muscat [the capital] for a quick trip, missing the cloture vote on Rob Cordray’s nomination, which was never explained to outlets that asked about his whereabouts.
“Kerry returned and briefed the White House. Kerry continued speaking with the Omanis and the White House, and in 2012 a team -- including a Kerry aide, along with two State Department officials and a W.H. aide -- went to Muscat to begin a U.S./Oman/Iran channel. When Kerry became Secretary, it was decided this channel would continue to help feed into the P5+1 talks, and Kerry visited Oman himself in May.”
No wonder Obama wanted him so badly. And to think that all those idiot 'pro-Israel' groups came out in support of his nomination. Well, I opposed it.

That means WAY BEFORE the 'moderate' Iranian president was elected or mentioned as a candidate.

Hi Carl, I've been going over the news posts about the release of the US hikers, not a single article mentions Kerry, a guy who loves being in the spotlight, not being mentioned in this case, is pretty strange if you ask me.

I followed that affair while it was ongoing and I'm sure Kerry was never mentioned.

This post shines a different light on Oman: http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/15/world/meast/oman-iran-hikers/index.html
