U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry waded into the thicket of Mideast politics Friday,
chiding the Turkish prime minister for a slam on Zionism while touting the ties
the United States has with Turkey and Israel -- two once friendly nations now
mired in antipathy.
Kerry said he and the Obama administration disagreed with
Recep Tayyip Erdogan's remark equating Zionism with crimes against humanity, and
he called it "objectionable."
