When Lying Is Called Diplomacy

Secretary of State John Kerry said Saturday, after reaching a tentative agreement with Russia to disarm Syria of chemical weapons, that his earlier statement about the impossibility of such a plan was in fact “the language of diplomacy.”

I purposefully made the statements,” Kerry said in Geneva, Switzerland, after reaching the framework of an agreement with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. “And I did indeed say it was impossible and [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad] won't do it, even as I hoped it would be possible and wanted him to do it.  And the language of diplomacy sometimes requires that you put things to the test, and we did.”

How can anyone trust a man who lies? What happened to integrity?

God won't ignore such things.

Psa 36:1  To the choirmaster. Of David, the servant of the LORD. Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes.
Psa 36:2  For he flatters himself in his own eyes that his iniquity cannot be found out and hated.
Psa 36:3  The words of his mouth are trouble and deceit; he has ceased to act wisely and do good.
Psa 36:4  He plots trouble while on his bed; he sets himself in a way that is not good; he does not reject evil.
Psa 36:5  Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.
Psa 36:6  Your righteousness is like the mountains of God; your judgments are like the great deep; man and beast you save, O LORD.
