Obama create 7 new states but newly appointed Sec. of State John Kerry created a new country. Geography isn’t a prerequisite in the Obama administration. Maybe its a new country where Kerry can dock his yacht to avoid paying taxes?
US Secretary of State John Kerry was referring to the poor, landlocked nation of 5.5 million, Kyrgyzstan, but he appeared to confuse it with its resource-rich neighbour to the north, Kazakhstan.
The State Department kindly omitted the error in the official transcript of Wednesday’s speech, which Mr Kerry delivered on the eve of his first foreign trip as secretary of state.
Video of the incident shows Mr Kerry praising US diplomats working abroad: “they fight corruption in Nigeria, they support the rule of law in Burma, they support democratic institutions in Kyrzakhstan.”
