ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The good news about John Kerry is that he is no longer secretary of State (“John Kerry says Trump ‘doesn’t know what he’s talking about’ on Iran deal,” Web, Sept. 2). The bad news is that he has again become involved in politics, supporting what many consider to be his poorest decisions while in office.

The history of his tenure in the State Department, along with other decisions of his, consisted of a deeply flawed Iranian nuclear deal and his avid support of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, coupled with a continuous stream of criticism of Israel when dealing with a possible accord between the Jewish state and the Palestinians.

Certainly Mr. Kerry should be proud of establishing record travel miles during his term in office, but he has no cause to be proud of his failed foreign policies, particularly when dealing with dictatorships. Unfortunately, with a slim number of acceptable candidates put forth by the Democratic Party, his resurrection may occur — to the detriment of our foreign policy.
