As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Kerry Immediately Caves to India

Secretary of State John Kerry took time off from appeasing Iran to cave in to Indian officials outraged that one of their diplomats in the United States, a woman named Devyani Khobragade, was arrested for abusing an employee, who is also Indian. And also that she was treated like . . . someone who had been arrested.

The woman stands accused in New York of underpaying and overworking the help, among other things. The prosecutor isn’t backing down, saying crimes have been committed. But that didn’t stop Kerry from immediately getting on the phone with India’s national security advisor to offer up “regret.”

Regret for what? India’s caste system?

In a statement, the State Department even threw in some slobbery nonsense about how Kerry has daughters the same age as the accused Indian diplomat.

As a father of two daughters about the same age as Devyani Khobragade, the Secretary empathizes with the sensitivities we are hearing from India about the events that unfolded after Ms. Khobragade’s arrest, and in his conversation with National Security Advisor Menon he expressed his regret, as well as his concern that we not allow this unfortunate public issue to hurt our close and vital relationship with India.

We are a nation of laws, or we were prior to 2009. The Obama administration better let this prosecutor work the case like any other, and Kerry shouldn’t allow his bladder to spasm out of control just because a bunch of meshugena start ululating in the streets of New Delhi.

  1. This is just one of many differences of opinion on the part of foreigners on how domestic help should be treated–paid or not? Locked in or not? The Indians should worry about stopping horrible workplace sexual abuse of women and rape outside the workplace–oh, and burning or throwing acid on daughters-in-law, etc. Clean your own house!

  2. Kerry is pond scum and should not be in a position that represents the United States.

    About appeasing Iran. I thought Iran had taken their ball and gone home.

      • We already have a President of Apologies and Appeasement.

        Not that this has much to do with this case but: The Caste system is possibly the worst system in the world
        what other system says, “whatever social stature you are born into, you must stay in that social stature for the rest of your life. You are not allowed to get better or try harder”

      • Good Point. Just rename State — Department of Apologies or Department of Appeasement. And Kerry becomes Secretary of Apologies or Secretary of Appeasement.

        Easy Peasy.

  3. I like India.
    They have a Billion people and are a “democracy”, its the birthplace of Buddha, they do not like Communist China & they have have some sexy women ;-)

  4. “We are a nation of laws”? Not any longer. There’s another story coming out of Texas about the Obama administration smuggling babies and children of illegals into the country.
