Elections Have Consequences, the Foreign Policy Edition

Elections have consequences, they say, and the world is about to find out just how dire the consequences of last week’s election are.

President Obama is considering asking Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) to serve as his next defense secretary, part of an extensive rearrangement of his national security team that will include a permanent replacement for former CIA director David H. Petraeus.

Although Kerry is thought to covet the job of secretary of state, senior administration officials familiar with the transition planning said that nomination will almost certainly go to Susan E. Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

If this happens, and there aren’t many reasons to believe it won’t, our national security and foreign policy will be entirely in the hands of liars and incompetents. Does that sound harsh? Let me remind you of what John Kerry said of our soldiers in Vietnam when he testified before Congress in 1971.

…several months ago in Detroit, we had an investigation at which over 150 honorably discharged and many very highly decorated veterans testified to war crimes committed in Southeast Asia, not isolated incidents but crimes committed on a day-to-day basis with the full awareness of officers at all levels of command….

They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war, and the normal and very particular ravaging which is done by the applied bombing power of this country.

We need to be crystal clear about John Kerry’ statement, accusations he has never recanted even when they resurfaced during his Presidential run in 2004. He claimed, without fear of contradiction, that our soldiers committed heinous war crimes as a matter of course and that our entire military hierarchy from the men on the ground to the Pentagon knew about them every day. He carried a vicious slander against tens of thousands of honorable soldiers into the hallowed halls of Congress and walked out to the applause of the Democratic Party, which later rewarded him with incredible power and prestige as a Lieutenant Governor, United States Senator, and Presidential nominee.

Beside him, Susan Rice, who went on five different Sunday talk shows and lied about the attacks in Benghazi that killed four Americans, is a piker. We can’t let her off the hook, though. She stood before the country and blamed the acts committed by sworn enemies of the United States on one man who made a video. She apologized for our First Amendment, freedom for which Americans for centuries have bled and died, with a straight face.

It’s possible the sources are wrong or this is one gargantuan trial balloon floated by the Obama administration to see just how far we will let it go in its lame-duck term. Let us know what you think.
