The image Harry Truman wouldn't want you to see

By Richard K. Barry

The Daily Mail has an absurd headline today that reads, "The image John Kerry WON'T want you to see: U.S. Secretary of State pictured dining with Assad and his wife at Damascus restaurant before war broke out in Syria."

The Mail writes that, "[t]he picture is believed to have been taken in February 2009 in the Naranj restaurant in Damascus when Kerry led a delegation to Syria to discuss ideas and talk about the way forward for peace in the region."

Shocking. Absolutely shocking, I say.

And here's another picture. This one is of President Harry Truman and Prime Minister Winston Churchill with Uncle Joe Stalin at the Postdam Conference in 1945 before things turned Cold War super frosty between the super powers. I guess you're never supposed to talk to people who might become your enemy. Now, that's diplomacy.
