Kerry Cleans Up ‘Chickenshit’

Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday said whoever in the administration called Israeli’s prime minister “chickenshit”—among other things—was wrong. “We condemn anybody who uses language such as was used in this article. It does not reflect the president, it does not reflect me, it is disgraceful, unacceptable, damaging.” The Atlantic reported Tuesday on the strained relationship between President Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu, quoting anonymous officials hating on Bibi. Kerry wishes they’d stop. “I have never heard that word around me in the White House. I don’t know who these anonymous people are who keep getting quoted, but they make life much more difficult.”
