A couple of months ago, Senator John Kerry showed up more than an hour late for a reception at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. An aide whispered that Kerry's flight home from Dubai had been delayed.
No one knew that Kerry had traveled to Dubai, and no announcement was made afterward. All that is known, even unofficially, is that he was on a private diplomatic mission for President Obama. He has made many of these.
