Putin Says Kerry Is Lying And Knows It

President Barack Obama is attending the G20 Summit in St. Petersburg Russia and is experiencing a cold Siberian chill in the air surrounding the issue of Syria.  It’s probably a good thing that there is no face-to-face meeting planned between President Obama and President Putin because at the moment, Putin has little regard and patience for Obama and his stance on Syria.

Putin also has as much regard for US Secretary of State John Kerry as I have.  On Wednesday, Putin was meeting with his human rights council when the topic of Kerry’s statements made to the US Congress earlier in the week came up.  Putin commented:

“This was very unpleasant and surprising for me. We talk to them (the Americans) and we assume they are decent people, but he is lying and he knows that he is lying. This is sad.”

Exactly what statement, or statements, Kerry made to Congress that Putin is calling a lie are not clear, however Kerry is a typical Democratic politician who is quite skilled at lying to the American people so why not lie to Congress also.  Some speculate that Putin was referring to Kerry’s characterization of the Syrian rebels being mostly moderates with only 15-25% being al-Qaeda.  It may have been the supposed evidence that Assad’s government was responsible for the chemical weapons attack.

No one really knows to which Putin was referring, but one thing was made perfectly clear and that is Putin believes Kerry to be a liar and therefore will have little if any respect for him as an international diplomat.  Since Russia is one of the world’s key players in international affairs, having such a player think so poorly of the person representing the United States should place Kerry’s position in dire jeopardy, even if for some strange reason Kerry was telling the truth.
