Iranian Foreign Minister Says John Kerry Leaked Covert Israeli Operations


In new bombshell leaked audio, Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that John Kerry, while he was serving as Secretary of State under Obama, spilled hundreds of covert Israeli operations in Syria. 

As disclosed in the audio obtained by the New York Times, Kerry shockingly revealed that Israel had attacked Iranian targets in Syria over 200 times. 

In the tapes, Zarif also discussed his limited power compared to Ayatollah Ali Khameini and the U.S. killing Gen. Qassem Soleimani in January of 2020, Fox News reports. 

Zarif’s comments sounded off alarms within Iran, where officials are tight-lipped amidst a cutthroat political environment that includes the paramilitary Revolutionary Guard. Outside Iran, Zarif’s comments could affect talks in Vienna aimed at finding a way for Tehran and the U.S. to comply with Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal. 

After the leak went public, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh told journalists Monday that the recording was a small part of a seven hour interview Zarif had with a well-known economist that was to be held by a think tank associated with the Iranian presidency. 

Khatibzadeh said the release of the recording was “illegal” and “selectively” edited. 

Unfortunately, this is not the first time Kerry has been accused of sleeping with the enemy. 

Kerry has previously been accused of colluding with Iranian leaders to undermine the Trump administration. 

And, back in the 1970, his opposition to the Vietnam war led to him meeting with the North Vietnamese in Paris. He claimed the meeting was a part of an effort to learn more about U.S. Prisoners of War, but some question the propriety of a commissioned Naval officer meeting with the enemy during war. 

Some suggest the meeting may have violated the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which prohibits members of the armed services from meeting with the enemy during war, according to a 2004 Fox News piece.
