U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hit Friday at criticism that the Obama administration's Middle East policy is in disarray, maintaining that the U.S. is actively engaged in multiple ambitious diplomatic initiatives in the region and elsewhere.Kerry spoke at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, as Syria peace talks were near collapse 265 miles away in Geneva. Kerry rejected what he branded the "myth" of U.S. disengagement. Kerry insisted that the administration knew what it was doing when it engaged Iran over its nuclear program.On Syria, Kerry said "forceful diplomacy" and not military action was responsible for removing chemical weapons from the country.Some critics of the administration have suggested that Kerry is spending too much time trying to bring the Israelis and Palestinians together and not enough time dealing with more urgent crises.
