Editorial: John Kerry's continual failure

Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry visited Iraq.



To work on the political solution?



Kerry's entire term as Secretary of State will be viewed as a full on failure and he has no one to blame for that but himself.

As a US senator, he was fully aware of the need for Iraq to make political concessions and moves to bring everyone into the government.

Back then, he knew persecution would breed hostility and render the government illegitimate.

As Secretary of State, he's mistaken himself for the Secretary of Defense and focused on bombing and combat.

He was supposed to provide the administration with careful thought and experience.

Instead, he became yet another garbled scream for war, war, war!

He could have made a difference.

Instead, he failed the American people and the Iraqi people.

He could have been a leader in healing the wounds of the Iraq War.

He could have left a mark in history.

Instead, he's just one more embarrassment on the global stage.
