[An Nahar] U.S. Secretary of State John F.
I was in Vietnam, you know Kerry
Former Senator-for-Life from Massachussetts, self-defined war hero, speaker of French, owner of a
lucky hat, conqueror of Cambodia, and current Secretary of State...
on Monday declared that a nearly 200-year-old policy which had governed Washington's relations with Latin America was finally dead.
