Kerry blasts Netanyahu... for being wrong on IraqUS Secretary of State John FN Kerry has blasted Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu for being wrong on Iraq (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).
"Israel is safer today with the added time we have given and the stoppage of the advances in the nuclear program than they were before we got that agreement, which by the way the prime minister opposed," Kerry said during a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing. "He was wrong."
Kerry was later asked to address Netanyahu's criticism of a hypothetical deal with Iran as a threat to Israel.
"The prime minister was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush," Kerry replied. "We all know what happened with that decision."Really? I thought John Kerry was in favor of the war in Iraq, and believed that Saddam had nuclear weapons.
Let's go to the videotape.
Hmmm. Sounds a lot like Prime Minister Netanyahu's questions on Iran, doesn't it? Kerry used to be a bit smarter, didn't he?
