Hippity hop for the marxist-in-chief.
The pandering to Turkey is due to Obama being a real big fan of Turkey, his radical advisers are of the same mind meld as well.
Why is Kerry Pandering to Turkey?
After Obama extracted an apology from Israel, Turkey went on to flagrantly violate the terms of the agreement. A Muslim country violating an agreement with a non-Muslim country is routine, but it was still embarrassing to the United States which had negotiated the apology.
But instead of being called on it, Erdogan got a splashy trip to Washington where he rubbed the violation in everyone’s faces by dragging one of the terrorist daddies from the Mavi Marmara for a photo op with Kerry and a letter for Obama.
Prime Minister Erdogan was quite blatantly showing that the Mavi Marmara Jihad boat issue wasn’t done. Despite Obama Inc’s notorious hostility to Israel, Secretary of State John Kerry should have at least had the common sense to avoid a photo op like that because it wrecks the closest thing to a diplomatic triumph that his people had been claiming credit for.
But Kerry has repeatedly pandered to Turkey on the Mavi Marmara. In April, he went into outright outrageous territory.
US Secretary of State John Kerry compared the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing to the nine Turkish terrorists killed by the IDF as they tried to break Gaza’s naval blockade, at a press conference in Istanbul on Sunday.
You can put this down to Kerry being Hanoi John again. Or the usual hostility to Israel. But there has been a notable uptick in the Turkey pandering lately.
