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 Sundays Chris Wallace when he spoke to an aide about an Israeli operation resulting in the deaths of 14 IDF solders. Kerrys reaction was a mocking:
"Its a hell of a pinpoint operation. Its a hell of a pinpoint operation.Weve got to get over there. Thank you, John. I think, John, we ought to go tonight. I think its 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 its 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: Its 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. Its disgraceful. Yeah, its tough. Its 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 Ill say it again. We defend Israels right to do what it is doing in order to get at those tunnels. Israel has accepted a unilateral cease-fire. Its 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 thats 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 Kerrys 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.
Yeh he needs to get right over there and muck it up for the Israelis.
Jews voted Obama.
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
I think that needs to be changed..AMERICAN JEWS voted for Obama..Jews in Israel have hated on him since the beginning..Jews in America who care about Israel vote Republican..the others vote Democrat and I will never understand why
100 Days of Being a Laughingstock in Paris (Obama versus the CIA)
Golly gee willikers, shouldn’t everyone be cheering any time radical Islam is getting their butts kicked and terrorist infrastructure destroyed?
Jews have been to hell. And back. Without them the Middle East doesn’t have a chance.
What does that have to do with the Jewish community backing the man destroying MY country?
Kerry is lucky he is “unmockable”....
How can you mock a perennial joke of a man?
Did this Obama goon almost get to be President?
I sure hope I don’t have you for a neighbor.
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.
let noone forget that when Japan decided to drop a few bombs on Pearl Harbor.....we nuked them, a proper response in my opinion.
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!
You’re from New York?
Never would have guessed.
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.
You’re sitting at an Organizing For America computer somewhere aren’t you trolly?
You can have the last word.
Kerry’s been romancing the microphone since he sold out the troops during Vietnam - you’d think he would’ve learned by now.....
