Kerry: ‘Hell of a pinpoint’

20 Jul, 2014

John Kerry is captured by a Fox News microphone expressing apparent frustration about the high civilian toll in Israel’s Operation Protective Edge, while also criticizing Hamas leaders as ‘intransigent’ for their rejection of an Egypt-brokered ceasefire deal and defending Israel’s actions as self defense. On a cellphone call with his chief of staff, Jonathan Finer:

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

Clarifying the comments with Fox News Sunday interviewer Chris Wallace:

It’s very, very difficult in these situations. I reacted, obviously, in a way that anybody does with respect to young children and civilians
