Common Fight Against Terror

Happy 71st birthday
Secretary of State John Kerry.

Your position
is a thankless one
but at least

unlike previous Secretary
Condoleezza Rice

you don't have to wrestle
with your conscience

over how much of a role you played
in authorizing

interrogation tactics.

Then again

maybe she doesn't either.
