WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In what Secretary of State John Kerry described as a significant foreign-policy coup, the U.S. claimed, on Tuesday, that it had successfully located a moderate Syrian rebel.
Though Kerry did not elaborate on how the U.S. did so, he said that locating the rebel was "the culmination of a months-long effort."
The Secretary of State said that the Syrian had been appropriately vetted and was deemed "moderately rebellious."
"He definitely seems to be the sort of gentleman we can work with," Kerry said, adding that several millions of dollars would be spent arming and training the rebel in the days and weeks ahead.
Kerry said that the government's successful identification of a moderate Syrian rebel was a major victory that should silence critics of the U.S.'s strategy in Iraq and Syria.
"To all of the naysayers who have been arguing that there are no moderate Syrian rebels, I am here today to say that we have found one," Kerry said. "And if we have found one, that means that there must be others out there."
