Right about Obama, Kerry

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., is correct when he says in his column “Exclusive to the Trib: President Obama's weak policies have emboldened al-Qaida” (Aug. 11 and TribLIVE.com) that “Obama's perception of the threats facing us is dangerously flawed.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin puts his thumb in America's eye by granting Edward Snowden asylum, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spit in America's eye again by authorizing more than 1,000 new housing units in settlements in Palestinian territory three days before long-sought-after peace talks were to begin.

The Whispers column “Diplomacy's environmental downside” (Aug. 4 and TribLIVE.com) was also right. Secretary of State John Kerry should have known better and saved the planet tons of global-warming pollutants from his constant flying around, trying to arrange peace talks he should have known would be inevitably torpedoed by Netanyahu.
