Genius SoS Kerry Invents New Country
Even Borat gets it right.
John Kerry has suffered his first gaffe as the new US secretary of state, inventing the nation of “Kyrzakhstan.”
In an embarrassing slip of the tongue, Mr Kerry last week praised US diplomats working to secure “democratic institutions” in the Central Asian country, which does not exist.
The newly minted diplomat was referring to Kyrgyzstan, a poor, landlocked nation of 5.5 million, which he appeared to confuse with its resource-rich neighbour to the north, Kazakhstan. . .
