U.S. Sen. John Kerry has turned over to the U.S. consulate in Jerusalem a letter from Hamas to President Obama that Kerry had received during his trip to the Middle East, FOX News has learned.

Kerry spokesman Frederick Jones said the Democratic senator was not aware that the letter was from Hamas when he accepted it from a United Nations official, and only heard media reports of its origin, which prompted him to relinquish it.

News that Kerry had given up the letter came after the Israeli embassy and a former Bush adviser on Middle East affairs said Friday that Kerry should not act as mailman for a group labeled as a terrorist organization by the United States.

John 'Winter Soldier' Kerry claims he didn't know who the letter was from when he accepted it.

This reminds me of his infamous trip to France, where he held talks with the enemy (Vietnam) while we were at war.

Maybe he really didn't know who the letter was from when he accepted it. If that's the case, then it's still 'shame on him' because he should have been more aware.

What is he supposed to do, ask for ID and fingerprints? It sounds like it was an attempt at a conversation. Instead of being so knee jerk about it we could see what they have to say.

Kerry did the proper thing....

give the letter to the counsulate, he's no courier or diplomatic envoy...

all he could do is pass the message/letter along to proper channels.

LOL! Wow

I can only picture somebody tapping Kerry's shoulder when no one else is looking.
