kerrysaluteI have to give the Obama administration credit. They never let a crisis interrupt a vacation. John Kerry yachts, State Department lies, and Egypt burns, from Paul Mirengoff, Power Line:

State Department denies that Kerry was on yacht during Morsi’s ouster
Mosheh Oinounou of CBS has tweeted a photo of John Kerry’s yacht, the “Isabel,” and claimed that a CBS producer spotted Kerry on board Wednesday, the day of Mohammed Morsi’s ouster. According to Oinounou, when the producer shouted “Morsi,” she received no response.

However, the State Department denies that Kerry was on his yacht during the crisis. And it insists that, although he wasn’t in Washington at the national security team meetings on Egypt, he participated “by secure phone and was and is in non-stop contact with foreign leaders, and his senior team in Washington and Cairo.”.

Reactions: RS McCain:

Was there ever a time that honest people did not despise John Kerry? He first came to public attention more than 40 years ago, lying about his service in Vietnam, and he has been lying about everything — every single thing — ever since.

Thomas Lifson, American Thinker:

The State Department’s new spokeswoman Jen Psaki has sacrificed her own, the State Department, and Secretary of State John Kerry’s credibility with her readily proven lying about his whereabouts as the coup in Egypt unfolded.

and Karen, Lonely Conservative:

It got so bad that US Secretary of State John Kerry had to take time out from yachting and kayaking to make a few phone calls.

Maybe it time for the Obama administration to give Kerry the Hillary Clinton treatment, take away his portfolio.
