Former Secretary of State John Kerry really is a rat. That seems to be the reality after the New York Times published a phone call between an economist named Saeed Leylaz and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif where Zarif claims Kerry told him that the Israelis had carried out over two hundred airstrikes against the regime.
According to the Times, Zarif revealed he was often kept in the dark regarding security matters “sometimes to his embarrassment,” and that “to his astonishment,” Kerry, who continued meeting with Zarif even after leaving office, told him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times.
Kerry is a FORMER Secretary of State. Why would he be meeting with officials from other countries unless the occasions were social in nature?

The recording suggests that Zarif, and others within the Iranian regime, might privately have been glad that the U.S. killed terrorist General Qasem Soleimani, leader of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, last year.
Zarif says “the United States delivered a major blow to Iran, more damaging than if it had wiped out an entire city in an attack,” the Times reported. “But he said some of Mr. Suleimani’s actions also damaged the country.”
(The attack on Soleimani was universally criticized by Democrats at the time, including then-candidate Joe Biden.)
“In the Islamic Republic the military field rules,” Zarif said. “I have sacrificed diplomacy for the military field rather than the field servicing diplomacy.”
So, the Iranians didn’t like Soleimani, either. No wonder the people were dancing in the streets when he was killed.
That doesn’t change the reality that John Kerry is a rat and he’s running around talking to foreign officials still.
What a rat.
