Despite Claims by the Democrats and the Media (But I Repeat Myself), Iran's Foreign Minister Clarifies: I Only Learned of Israel's Covert Attacks on Our Operatives in Syria from John Kerry

The word went out from the Democrat High Command, by which I mean the media, that no, the Iranian Foreign Minister already had knowledge of Israel's actions from the media, and from Israel itself.

NeverTrumpers like AllahPundit immediately amplified this narrative, because all NeverTrumpers ever do is amplify what they see their leftwing heroes saying on Twitter.

But a key source -- the foreign minister himself -- says this spin is untrue.

He says he got this information from John Kerry.

Leaked audiotape of Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif indicates he had no knowledge of covert Israeli military strikes before former secretary of state John Kerry provided him with the information, new details that contradict the State Department's recent defense of Kerry.

These details are likely to further fuel calls from leading Republicans for Kerry's firing or resignation. The New York Times reported that Zarif said on the tape that Kerry told him Israel launched 200 airstrikes against Iranian interests in Syria. The Times did not provide further details on that issue. But an independent translation of the audiotape commissioned by the Washington Free Beacon shows that Zarif went on to clarify that he had no prior knowledge of these Israeli strikes before Kerry told him.

"Kerry told me that Israel had launched 200 airstrikes against you [Iran]," said Zarif. "You didn't know?" asked his interviewer. "No, no," he replied.

These new details contradict top State Department officials, who have repeatedly said the information was already in the public domain and not classified.

Quick, Democrats, pump out a new cover story so that NeverTrump has something to write about today.
