At a joint appearance with Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird, [Secretary of State John] Kerry said he has not received a crucial environmental report on the $7 billion pipeline, which would carry oil from western Canada to refineries in Texas.
“My hope is that before long, that analysis will be available, and then my work begins[.]”
Never mind that the “analysis” has been going on for the better part of a decade.
Then Kerry added this bit of mendacity:
I can promise our friends in Canada that all the appropriate effort is being put into trying to get this done effectively and rapidly.
Who does he think he’s kidding?
