Kerry endorses fatwa on nuclear weapons

US Secretary of State John FN Kerry has endorsed a supposed fatwa against nuclear weapons issued by Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khameni.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Voice of America that he has high regard for the Fatwa (religious decree) regarding nuclear issues put forth by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei.
In an interview on VOA, Kerry said: “I show a lot of respect for this fatwa as it is a religious message and is highly respected by people.”
He stressed that he and the U.S. president welcome such a fatwa but he added that the fatwa now needs to be framed in legal terms.
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa that the production and use of weapons of mass destruction are haram (forbidden in religious terms).
Kerry said Iran is entitled to a peaceful nuclear program but added that the program must be transparent and operate under international regulations.
What could go wrong?

Not hard to see why his boss chose him for the job. They have equal discrimination and political savvy, that is to say, less than zero.

I hope the Iranians don't actually believe that Kerry believes the Fatwa exists... from what I recall even President Obama acknowledged that there is no such fatwa, but that by mentioning it we can hopefully get the Iranians to pretend that there is one (as if!).
