Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) questioned John Kerry directly in a hearing Wednesday over reports that then secretary of state revealed covert Israeli operations to Iran’s foreign minister. The House Foreign Affairs committee gathered to discuss climate change. Because Kerry is currently serving as the presidential convoy for climate, he was invited to the hearing for questioning.

Perry took advantage of the moment to discuss the controversial reports. Allegedly, Kerry told Iran’s Mohammed Javad Zarif about over 200 covert operations on Iranian targets in Syria. The Pennsylvania representative reminded Kerry that Iran is a major enemy, killing more Americans in recent history than any other nation state. He asked Kerry directly if he provide information to foreign minister Zarif.

“On no occasion ever,” Kerry responded.

“So Mr. Zarif is a liar?” Perry followed up.

“Mr. Zarif may be confused,” Kerry said.

On the other hand, Kerry defended himself, saying he had never known about any covert Israel operations. “The first time I ever heard the number 200 was when I read the article.”

Yet, Perry said during the hearing, there is still reason for suspicion. He reminded the committee that Kerry visited shady characters in Nicaragua. “People are right to be skeptical,” Perry said.

Kerry claimed all his trips while he was secretary of state were officially sanctioned. But, Perry interrupted, Daniel Ortega, the President of Nicaragua is a dictator.

“Damn right!” Kerry said, just before Rep. Perry’s time was up.

Scott Mann says botched Afghanistan withdrawal was a failure on the Afghan government

Retired U.S. Army Lt. Col. Scott Mannn discussed the withdrawal from Afghanistan in depth on the latest episode of The Sara Carter Show. Mann claims that although it was a botched withdrawal, our service members did their best. Instead, the government is to blame for the failure.

“Our Vets led the way when the government failed,” Mann said. “They fought till the last bullet. They fought until the bitter end, even when their president and their generals took bribes and abandoned them.” Therefore, Mann is advocating for immediate visas to these Afghan Special Forces.

Meanwhile, families like Sara Carter’s have stepped up to help Afghans out of the country. “It was the veteran population, for the most part, and the military family population who looked at this and said: ‘Okay, fine, nobody else is coming. I’ll do it.’ And we picked up our cell phones. We started working together to find ways to try to guide and shepherd our Afghan friends to some kind of safety, if not freedom,” Mann said. “We need their help. People like you [Sara Carter] who’ve been on this problem from the very beginning. You know, you’re on a 911 dispatch call, and you’re the dispatcher. You’ve been on the call for a month, and you are the dispatcher that is assisting a family who is being murdered one by one. You’re staying on the line with them as this is occurring. You have no shift relief.”

So Mann is lobbying Congress to write a law, that any Afghan who went through the school of excellence as a commando Afghan Special Forces, should have an immediate visa.
