On April 4, during a visit to Morocco, Secretary Kerry stopped by at Rick’s Cafe owned by Kathy Kriger – a former State Department Foreign Service Officer. The cafe apparently also has a piano player named Sam who presumably played “As Time Goes By” during the secretary’s visit.
Secretary Kerry then headed back home after a 12-day, 23,000-mile trip to Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa on April 4, 2014. While he was gone, State/OIG issued a management alert over $6 billion in State Department contracting money. In the alternate universe our Rick says, “You better hurry, they cannot properly account $6 billion in contracting money. And you’ll miss that plane.” Our Ilsa [laughs] and says: “The whole world isn’t crumbling. And don’t worry, I have my own plane and now have 371,006 miles!
