Kerry shows he can't be trusted to tell truth

info@islandpacket.comSeptember 12, 2013 

On Sept. 4, Secretary of State John Kerry proved himself a liar and further disgraced and dishonored this administration and the United States.

When questioned by South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan regarding the administration's credibility and trustworthiness in the wake of the Benghazi fiasco, he uttered three "unbelievably small" lies in a single sentence:

"When I was in the United States Senate," Kerry said, "I supported military action in any number of occasions, including Grenada, Panama, I can run a list of them. And I'm not going to sit here and be told by you that I don't have a sense of what the judgment is with respect to this."

First lie, Grenada took place in 1983 under the Reagan administration. Second lie, Kerry was not in the Senate until 1985. Third lie, he never supported the invasion of Grenada. In fact, he wrote a scathing opposition piece in a New England newspaper.

And he gets his feathers ruffled (chickens have feathers) when confronted with questions about trust, honesty and credibility.

It makes my eyes hurt.

God help us, please.
