Marie Harf, a Fox News contributor and former spokeswoman for Secretary of State John Kerry, scrambled on Wednesday to defend the Obama-era Syria deal from 2013, admitting it was not "perfect."
Fox News host Bill Hemmer asked Harf whether she agreed with President Trump's decision to order a military strike against Syria last week.
"I did. I thought it was a good response to President Assad's use of chemical weapons," Harf said. "What I'm more focused on now quite frankly is the strategy going forward and what happens next in Syria."
Harf said that Congress did not give the Obama administration authorization to use force, so Kerry had to conduct a backup plan and negotiate an agreement to get chemical weapons out of Syria.
She conceded to her point that Obama should have just attacked Syria without Congress's authorization, but then she pivoted to defending the Obama administration for getting 1,300 tons of weapons out of Syria.
"Either they hid some [chemical weapons] that we didn't know about or they've made more in the last 3.5 years," Harf said.

Where is Kerry these days?
Lemme guess — the Iran deal wasn’t “perfect” either.
Why is this See You Next Tuesday getting paid by FNC to still be Obummer’s mouthpiece? She was horrible as a spokesperson so it can’t be because she’s so eloquent, she’s great for the medium.
Not perfect like what, the Iran deal that will ensure they get nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles to deliver them with?
To say or assert something so patently stupid and preposterous as to generate widespread mockery. Named in honor of State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf.
Someone at Fox needs to be fired for putting the Harf-wit on the air.
“Harf said that Congress did not give the Obama administration authorization to use force...”
What do alcoholics and Democrats have in common?
It’s always someone else’s fault.
They got promoted!
For the longest time I thought when I saw her puke up nonsense for Obama her name was actually Marie Barf.
Hair, glasses and name—I want to barf over Harf.
Being Harked. Is that anything like being Farked---Evelyn Farkas blabbing all your state secrets on broadcast TV?
"We been Farked."

RUSH: Theres a fact-check outfit out there called PolitiFact, and its like all the other fact-check outfits. The Washington Post has one; the AP has one. These fact-check outfits exist only to discredit and impugn Trump. Well, the PolitiFact has had to retract a story they categorized as mostly true three years ago, and this story is big. Three years ago, Barack Obama and his Regime were an abject disaster. But they were claiming success after success after success, particularly in the Middle East.
One of the things that the Obama administration was celebrating was that they had completely removed chemical weapons from Syria. Obama drew that red line and the Syrians and everybody else realized the bad actor they were dealing with, and they cowered in fear, and they did remove 100% of their chemical weapons. Theres a problem now, though. Those chemical weapons were just used in an attack in Syria on Syrian citizens. So how could the Obama administration have gotten rid of all of these? The Obama You know what the claim was? They claimed they gave all of that chemical weapons stock to the Russians.
Oh, yeah! Yeah, folks! The Obama administration now the dire enemy of the Russians, victimized by the Russians gave the chemical weapon stocks in Syria to the Russians.
Which means the Russians probably gave it right back to the Syrians. But the PolitiFact story retracts a 2014 article that said it was mostly true that the Obama administration helped broker a deal that successfully removed 100% of chemical weapons from Syria. So a story that was a lie backed up by PolitiFact for three years has been retracted, and the upshot is the Obama administration did not succeed in successfully removing all of Syrias chemical weapons, as we now know because those weapons were used recently.

Obama/Rice lied: Innocent kids died.!
Because Mattis called you and asked you what the strategy going forward should be [/sarcasm]
Understatement to the nth degree.
<><> The Iran-Nuclear Agreement, considered by many to be The worst agreement in U.S. diplomatic history certainly an accomplishment that rates high on the progressive list of ex-president Obamas successes.
JUST WONDERING-- Those Bags full of secret cash and gold to Iran? Where did that money come from?
Does Harf know? And if she tells, will Obama be perturbed?
"We been Farked and we been Harfed."
Obviously Marie Harf Arsed was the brains of the operation.
Marie said, "call me later" as she munched on unsalted kale chips.
Marie's busy these days....she's writing an article for Health Magazine titled, "Quinoa Changed My Life."
Why is this ditz employed anywhere except at a fast food restaurant?
