Now, it looks like we will be forced to deal with the haughty John Kerry as our next secretary of state. How nice! A man who betrayed his nation while at war to be our chief representative in the international community. Not exactly a man worthy of our respect.
In fact, this stinkin' genius is concerned that Pakistan hasn't been praised enough for its part in killing bin Laden. Is he serious? Pakistan harbored our greatest enemy while posing as our ally. We shouldn't be honoring the radical Islamist nation; we should instead be cutting our aid to them.

John Kerry: Pakistan Hasn’t Gotten Enough Credit For The Killing Of Bin Laden…
Wait, what? Pakistan did nothing to help us, in fact, they threw the doctor the CIA used to confirm Bin Laden was living in the compound in jail for 20+ years.
Via Washington Examiner:
Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., opposed cutting foreign aid to Pakistan by arguing, among other things, that the Pakistanis haven’t gotten enough credit for their assistance in the operations that led to the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Kerry was responding to Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., who suggested that the United States demand that Pakistan release Dr. Shakeel Afridi, whom they arrested after he helped the United States find bin Laden. Kerry noted the logistical support Pakistan provides to the Aghanistan war before suggesting that Pakistan helped American forces get bin Laden.
“Our folks were able to cooperate on the ground in Pakistan,” Kerry said during his first hearing about his nomination to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. “That’s one of the ways we were able to get Osama bin Laden. I don’t think the Pakistanis have frankly gotten credit, sufficiently, for the fact that they were helpful. It was their permissiveness in allowing our people to be there that helped us to be able to tie the knots that focused on that. To some degree — not exclusively, obviously, but to some degree.”
