Kerry's possible trip to Iran would be a boon to the regime

John Kerry, Willing Dupe to America's Enemies

The Wall Street Journal Reported the other day that Senator John Kerry was seeking permission from the Obama Administration to head to Tehran, perhaps to scratch his diplomatic itch. The Boston Globe reports that no such trip is in the works and Kerry has no intentions of going to Tehran.

A request to head to Iran would fit snugly with Kerry's persona as a willing dupe to America's Enemies. Just as he made his way to the Paris peace accords during Vietnam, Kerry would almost assuredly allow himself to be used by the Mullah's in Iran. After all, what's the point? As pointed out in an editorial in the Wall Street Journal, if a year of pleas from the President himself hasn't made any headway, what makes Kerry think his trip would garner much success?

If the mullahs had any sense, they'd send him a government plane. Beset by almost daily demonstrations by a democratic opposition that has been growing despite beatings and arrests since the stolen June election, Mr. Kerry would arrive from Washington to show the Iranian people that at least someone still favors the regime. He would be the most senior American to visit Tehran in 30 years and his trip would convey legitimacy that the dictatorship is especially eager to have at the current moment.

Who knows? Perhaps he would even come back and testify before Congress just like he did in the early 70's, lambasting the United States for its unfair treatment of the peaceful regime of Iran.
