U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hopes to win the 'Politifact Lie of the Year' award for 2014. He is touring the Middle East insisting that the United States has done nothing to spark turmoil in the Middle East.
According to Russia Today, "US Secretary of State John Kerry said Washington is “not responsible” for either the crisis in Libya, or violence in Iraq, where militants of the Al-Qaeda offshoot group ISIS are capturing cities one by one."
Kerry is quoted as saying that, "The United States of America is not responsible for what happened in Libya, nor is it responsible for what is happening in Iraq today."
As reported by Russia Today, "Speaking on the fallout of the crisis in Iraq, where radical Sunni militants – an Al-Qaeda splinter group the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS, also known as ISIL) – are capturing Iraqi cities one by one and pushing away government forces from strategic posts, Kerry urged the republic’s authorities to overcome sectarian considerations and restrain the extremists.
Kerry insists that the so-called 'Obama Doctrine' is a winning strategy for the Middle East.
