Kerry Legitimizes Iranian Government, Says It’s Elected
I’d like to be surprised, but, it’s John Freaking Kerry, speaking for Barack Obama.
Secretary of State John Kerry said Wednesday that Iran has an “elected” government, echoing a comment for which Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel was pilloried in his confirmation hearing last month.
“Iran is a country with a government that was elected and that sits in the United Nations,” Kerry said in France standing alongside French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. “And it is important for us to deal with nation-states in a way that acts in the best interests of all of us in the world.”
The comment is similar to what Hagel said on Jan. 31 when he told the Senate Armed Services Committee Iran was “an elected, legitimate government, whether we agree or not.”
Some might beg to differ with that assessment.
