John Kerry Was For Kyrzakhstan Before He Was Against It

National Review points out that John Kerry invented a country called Kyrzakhstan in a speech today last week.


On the eve of his first trip abroad, John Kerry invented the Central Asian country of “Kyrzakhstan.” He was attempting to praise U.S. diplomats’ work in emerging democracies in the region, and said “they support democratic institutions in Kyrzakhstan and Georgia.” Unfortunately, the secretary of state seems to have conflated Kyrgyzstan, one of the U.S.’s allies in the War on Terror, with Kazakhstan, its northern neighbor.

Only the best and brightest rejects.
