I don’t know what former US Secretary of State John Kerry did to tick off the left but they are coming for him. The New York Times just outted Kerry as a snitch who outted Israel to gain favor with the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Java Zarif.
A leaked recording published by the New York Times showed that Kerry, who continued meeting with Zarif after leaving office informed him of at least 200 Israel covert operations.
From the New York Times:
Former Secretary of State John Kerry informed him that Israel had attacked Iranian interests in Syria at least 200 times, to his astonishment, Mr. Zarif said.
John Kerry was ratting out Israeli covert operations in Syria directly to the Iranian foreign minister. Let that sink in. Wow. https://t.co/lmzhamTWFf pic.twitter.com/DzMAHAJeGy

According to the Times, the recording originated from “a conversation in March between Mr. Zarif and an economist named Said Leylaz.” The recording was first leaked to the UK-based, Saudi-owned Farsi language news channel Iran International is is hostile to Iran.
The tapes also revealed that the Republican Guard sets the agenda for the government and that some government officials were glad former President Trump eliminated General Qasem Soleimani.
Zarif says “the United States delivered a major blow to Iran, more damaging than if it had wiped out an entire city in an attack,” the Times reported. “But he said some of Mr. Suleimani’s actions also damaged the country.”
Zarif was not happy that Soleimani allowed Russian warplanes to fly over Iran to bomb Syria and was angry that he moved military equipment and personnel to Syria on state owned Iran Air.
“In the Islamic Republic the military field rules,” Zarif added. “I have sacrificed diplomacy for the military field rather than the field servicing diplomacy.”
The White House would not comment on the New York Times story.
“We’re not going to comment on leaked tapes,” says @PressSec when asked about audio from the New York Times of John Kerry telling the Iranian Foreign Minister about Israeli covert military actions in Syria. pic.twitter.com/EKSBTodjYT
