After trashing the United States in front of a receptive audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland John Kerry signed autographs for former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami.

(AP) DAVOS, Switzerland Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry slammed the foreign policy of the Bush administration on Saturday, saying it has caused the United States to become â??a sort of international pariah.â?

â??When we walk away from global warming, Kyoto, when we are irresponsibly slow in moving toward AIDS in Africa, when we donâ??t advance and live up to our own rhetoric and standards, we set a terrible message of duplicity and hypocrisy,â? Kerry said.

â??So we have a crisis of confidence in the Middle East â?? in the world, really. Iâ??ve never seen our country as isolated, as much as a sort of international pariah for a number of reasons as it is today.â?

Kerry said the government needs to use diplomacy to improve national security.

â??We need to do a better job of protecting our interests, because after all, thatâ??s what diplomacy is about,â? he said. â??But you have to do it in a context of the reality, not your lens but the reality of those other cultures and histories.â?

Kerry criticized what he called the â??unfortunate habitâ? of Americans to see the world â??exclusively through an American lens.â?

Captain Ed points out some of the hypocrisy,

Once again, we have the spectre of Kyoto haunting the Bush administration, when it was the Clinton administration that refused to submit the treaty to the Senate — and the Senate that unanimously passed a resolution saying they’d never ratify it. The Byrd-Hagel Resolution in 1997 made it clear that the US would not allow itself to be bound by the treaty as long as it exempted India, China, and other developing nations. That’s the same position as the Bush Administration has taken — and the same position that John Kerry himself took in 1997 when he voted in favor of the Byrd-Hagel Resolution.

That’s yet another example of the hypocrisy of John Kerry — but there’s more.

Instapundit says that Kerry is following the Carter model,

Like Jimmy Carter, he’ll never forgive America for rejecting him, and he’ll console himself with the approval of America’s enemies.
