John Kerry Flies Headlong Into the Belly of the Beast

Facing down danger as he had many times as a valiant soldier in Vietnam, Secretary of State John Kerry bravely flew headlong into the middle east chaos, flying to Tel Aviv today from Cairo, where he had met Tuesday with Egypt’s president and other high-level officials.  Arriving in Cairo, Kerry and his State Department team were subjected to a humiliating metal detector screening before meeting with President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi at the Egyptian presidential palace. Kerry failed the screening twice before the cause of the alarms were detected.



Kerry released a statement late Wednesday from Tel Aviv saying a major agreement had been sealed with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu giving Kerry assurances that the Walmart store in Gaza will not be hit by his country’s precision bombing.
