John Kerry Tells It Like It Is in Pakistan

I met John Kerry in Lowell when I was 18 years old, almost 40 years ago. He was running for Congress, and we know how that turned out. Nevertheless, I was impressed then, and I still like what I see most of the time. If someone is going to represent me, and that’s what happens in our system, in Pakistan this week, I feel good about it being him. He’s representing all of us as a senior US Senator. Here’s the latest report on his trip and statements from Reuters news service.
