As we wait for the president to reveal his big strategy to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the jayvee terrorists also known as ISIS/ISIL/IS/Islamic State tonight at 9 p.m EDT, he’s sent John Kerry to Iraq to meet with the country’s new prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, in an attempt to convince al-Abadi:
[. . .] to cede more power to the Sunni majority to bring them on side so Iraq can more effectively confront militants who control a swath of territory straddling Iraq and Syria.
Or has the president sent John Kerry not as a diplomat, but as the world’s oldest Special Forces solider?
Like the scene in “Apocalypse Now” maybe? We love the smell of Nantucket in the morning. . .
Yes, God speed Mr. Kerry and good hunting.
