As Deadline Looms for Iran Talks, Kerry Breaks a Leg

A day after Tehran rejected a key Western demand for nuclear site inspections, US Secretary of State John Kerry broke his right femur in a cycling accident in Scionzier, France, on Sunday morning, State Department spokesman John Kirby said.

After spending Sunday in a Geneva hospital, Kerry is to be transported to Boston on a specially equipped plane “outfitted to ensure he remains comfortable and stable throughout the flight,” according to a statement by Kirby.

I was shocked to hear that he would take that risk in boyish pursuits when the nation and the world need him to be
in top form. Don't our leaders get it that they have to put the country's best interests first?


#3

Surely the US isn't going to use this weak excuse to sabotage Iran on behalf of the Israelis.


#4

Staying physically fit through bicycling is how one stays "in top form". Accidents happen.


#5

Pshaw - when did these guys put the country's best interests at heart ...


#6

Exercise bikes work quite well to keep one in top form ... this was an ego trip. and he tripped over his ego ...


#7

Shucks, it's as good an excuse as any ...


#8

He's on a world stage - someone said "Good luck, John, go break a leg!" Unfortunately, John, as his wont, took it seriously ....

Actually, unless he needs to be in traction, he will most probably get an ORIF and simply have to be non weight bearing for awhile - wheel chairs fit in planes ...

Wait! It turns out that the ISIS website announced they were going to break Kerry's leg weeks ago!!!!

Those bastards!!!


#10

Either that, or the US will give Israel a fifth billion in tribute as a further apology.
Yeccchh!

I read on another web site that he was the victim of an attempted assassination.
