Kerry caught on hot mic disparaging Israel

Secretary of State John Kerry was caught on a hot mic on Fox News Sunday apparently disparaging Israel’s claim to be conducting a “pinpoint” operation in Gaza.

Host Chris Wallace explained that while Kerry spoke with an aide between his interviews with multiple Sunday shows, a microphone picked up his rather candid remarks in what Wallace called an “extraordinary moment of diplomacy” about the violence there.

“It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Kerry said. “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.”
Wallace asked him after playing the recording whether he was upset that the Israelis were going too far, and Kerry appeared to go into damage control mode.
