Kerry continues to attack Netanyahu’s judgment

Kerry launches a verbal assault on Netanyahu’s judgment, saying “The Prime Minister was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq.”

Ariel Sharon, not Netanyahu, was prime minister at the time, so it is unclear what the secretary was referring to. In 2002, as a private citizen, Netanyahu did sound the alarm on Iraqi WMDs during a talk to a Congressional committee.

Netanyahu was also “extremely outspoken” about the interim agreement with Iran, says Kerry, and is now calling for it to be extended.

Kerry promises that “we won’t take a backseat to anybody in our commitment to the State of Israel.”

Referring to Netanyahu’s upcoming speech to Congress, Kerry says, “I won’t prejudge his statement.”
