Pre-Show Hot Mike Catches Kerry Mocking Israel-Avoids Repeating When Asked During Show
Hot Air ^ | July 20, 2014 | Jeff Dunetz

On Sunday John Kerry forgot the number one rule of being miked for an interview; the microphone is always on. The Secretary of State was miked and on camera waiting for an interview with Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace when he spoke to an aide about an Israeli operation resulting in the deaths of 14 IDF solders. Kerry’s reaction was a mocking:

"It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.We’ve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think it’s crazy to be sitting around.”

Kerry was shaking his head no as Wallace explained that he was going to play the conversation. But when given the opportunity to explain himself Kerry went into full “diplo-spin” mode.

Wallace: Secretary Kerry when you said it’s a hell of a pinpoint operation are you upset that the Israelis are going too far and in fact do you intend to go back to the Middle East tonight, sir?

Kerry: It’s very difficult in these situations, obviously very difficult, Chris. You have people who have come out of tunnels. You have a right to go in and take out those tunnels. We completely support that. We support Israelis right to defend itself against rockets that are continuing to come in. Hamas has start this process rocketing after Israel was trying to find the people who killed three young –one American kid, Israeli citizens. It’s disgraceful. Yeah, it’s tough. It’s tough to have this kind of operation. I reacted obviously in a way that, in a way that anybody does with respect to young children and civilians. But war is tough. I said that publicly and I’ll say it again. We defend Israel’s right to do what it is doing in order to get at those tunnels. Israel has accepted a unilateral cease-fire. It’s accepted the Egyptian plan, which we also support. And it is important for Hamas to now step up and be reasonable and understand that you accept the cease-fire, you save lives, and that’s the way we can proceed to have a discussion about all of the underlying issues which President Obama has clearly indicated a willingness to do.

(The full conversation is embedded at the end of this post.)

The difference between Kerry’s comments when he thought he was off camera and when questioned about it by Wallace makes one wonder which other public statements made by the Secretary of State were coverups of what his real feelings are.

The irony of the Democrats having a donkey-faced ass as their Secretary of State.

I heard this. I’m still mystified. Hoping some Freepers can make some sense of it.

Why is this a big deal?

And they called people like me a “racist”, a “sexist”, a “homophobe”, an “extremist”, a “Teabagger” for not voting Obama.

The Jewish community can go to HELL!

Israel has known since 2009 what Obama and his Administration are all about..the moment Obama was elected Israel knew America would no longer have her back

Jews have been to hell. And back. Without them the Middle East doesn’t have a chance.

Kerry is lucky he is “unmockable”....

How can you mock a perennial joke of a man?

So it’s okay if Obama runs our nation into the ground because the Jews run Israel? That’s your argument?

Or are you arguing that it’s okay the Jews give money to Obama because Obama hates Israel?

If I was a leftist in 2014 and I was reading your posts I’d be laughing too.

If you’re going to comment, try paying attention.

How about you showing us the way to hell first, you freakin' retard?

No wonder "they" have called "people like you" names. I'll bet the ones you mentioned aren't the only ones you've been called, either. And probably were well-deserved.

Only a jerk like you would lump every Jew together in one group and state that "the Jews voted for Obama". I sure didn't vote for the Kenyan! Neither did any of my Jewish friends. And only an incredibly stupid jerk like you would tell the Jewish community to "go to HELL". You first, bub!

Hey, it beats being from “My Mother’s Basement”. Time to take time off from your little vampire fantasy world and trade the bathrobe for some clothes.

Kerry’s been romancing the microphone since he sold out the troops during Vietnam - you’d think he would’ve learned by now.....
