AP Reporter Pokes Fun At Kerry Associated Press reporter Matt Lee poked a little fun at Secretary Kerry's apparent infinite "focus" on major current events of the day during the State Department press briefing on Tuesday. Lee pointed out that, according to the State Department, Secretary Kerry is apparently "fully focused" on the tense situation in Egypt, the hostile Syrian regime, and Israel-Palestine peace talks. "How about the Arctic?" "Whales?" "Botswana?" State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf assured Lee that Secretary Kerry had broad interests "and is able to focus on a number of things at the same time." "He is an extraordinary man," Lee remarked. "You took the words out of my mouth. It's amazing," Harf replied.
