The Kerry Letter

There's some controversy about a letter John Kerry received on a Mid-East trip- he was given it and asked to pass it on to Obama. And now it turns out that the letter originated with Hamas.

Kerry claims to know nothing about the sender.

U.S. officials are furious with the United Nations for its role in Hamas' attempt to enlist U.S. Sen John Kerry to transfer a letter from the Palestinian militant group to President Obama during Kerry's trip to the Middle East, an official source told FOX News.

One thing bothers me about this- why is a United States Senator acting as a mail delivery boy for the UN or Hamas or anyone really?

I mean, do Senators normally personally receive mail from one group to deliver it to another? I could maybe understand it if the UN group he was meeting with said, "oh by the way, here's a letter for the President- would you mind delivering it for us?" and then Kerry let his aides take care of it. But for him to personally accept the letter and then deliver it?

Something not quite right about that.
