The last time we checked in with Marie Harf, she was explaining to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that Iraqi security forces “have held their lines on the outside of the city” — that city being Ramadi, which had just fallen to ISIS. We won’t be seeing as much of Harf on CNN or behind the podium beginning next week, and not for the reasons you’d suspect.

Instead, Harf is being promoted to senior advisor for strategic communications to Secretary of State John Kerry, where she will “continue her work leading on the Iran negotiations communications strategy.”

Yes, exactly like that, except dealing with nuclear weapons negotiations with a hostile nation.

Haft is uniquely talented.
