Former secretary of state John Kerry snitched to Iran about Israel's efforts to undermine the rogue regime's interests in Syria, according to leaked audio that surfaced over the weekend.
Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, one of Kerry's closest friends on the world stage, revealed in the leaked audiotape his "astonishment" at Kerry's willingness to rat out an important American ally. Iranian leaders have repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel.
Snitching, or the act of revealing sensitive information about a so-called friend to impress another friend or authority figure, is generally frowned upon, especially among Democrats. Former president Barack Obama, for example, held a reelection fundraiser in 2012 featuring a number of NBA players, including prominent anti-snitching advocate Carmelo Anthony.
Anthony appeared in an underground DVD titled Stop Snitching, in which the underachieving NBA forward stood next to an alleged drug dealer who advocated dealing with snitches by "putting a hole in their head."
Kerry, whose most notable accomplishment (apart from marrying a billionaire heiress) is winning a sailboat race around Martha's Vineyard in 2020, was one of the Obama administration's most eager advocates of appeasing the Islamic Republic during the negotiations over the controversial Iran nuclear deal. Kerry's second most notable achievement is humiliating the United States by breaking his leg in a bicycle accident in France.
While Zarif's comments on the leaked audio do not reflect well on Kerry, they do confirm that former president Donald Trump's assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani was a stroke of genius deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize. According to the New York Times, the Iranian foreign minister said Soleimani's death "delivered a major blow to Iran, more damaging than if it had wiped out an entire city in an attack."
The leaked audiotape, comprised of a three-hour conversation intended for use in an oral history project on the Iranian regime, comes at a time when the Biden administration is scrambling to revive the 2015 nuclear agreement ahead of Iranian elections in June.
