John Kerry aids negotiation with terrorist group Hamas

Sen. John Kerry took a side trip into Gaza to pick up a letter from Hamas to deliver to President Obama.  With friends like this, the US doesn't need terrorists.  Is Kerry so stupid that he doesn't realize he just opened communications with a terrorist group, or is he so disrespectful of our allies and our country that he did this willingly, knowingly, and openly?

Can he be charged with treason for this?

The UN finally did something I agree with

Kinda, anyway.

The U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees said Friday it has halted all aid shipments into the Gaza Strip due to interference by the ruling Hamas militant group.
This is the second aid shipment in a week that has been 'interferenced' by Hamas. 

More than "credible assurances from the Hamas government that such thefts will end" need to be forthcoming before aid is reinstated. Returning all the stolen aid from both shipments would be a good start, with penalties much harsher than a finger-waggling for the next theft.  (What, you think this won't happen again?)

Hamas rationalizes the theft, kinda like a welfare mom rationalizing spending her food stamps on Cheetos and Kool-Aid.:
In Gaza, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum called UNRWA's decision "unjustified."

He said Hamas supports UNRWA's work but believes the agency gives some of its aid to groups attached to Hamas' rivals.

He urged UNRWA "to put an end to using aid for political means, and to distribute it to all the needy equally."
  The contradiction between the second and third sentences there is making my head spin around like an upside-down turtle on a highway.  I'll be interested to see the reaction of the populace of Gaza - will the UN be blamed for stopping aid, or is this behavior from their government having an impact on the popularity of Hamas?

Protip

When the Saudis tell you not to smoke on their plane, you don't smoke on their friggin' plane.
