A conversation about the Mideast crisis between Secretary of State John Kerry and his top aide that was recorded while they were off-air and in which he voices concern about the civilian death toll in Gaza.  Here's a summary:

Kerry's comments are clear. "It's a hell of a pinpoint operation," he says, then repeats it. "It's a hell of a pinpoint operation." It's an apparent reference to Israel's insistence that its incursion into the region would be limited. "It's escalating significantly," the person on the phone replies, and Kerry then says: "We've got to get over there. I think we ought to go tonight." He then calls it "crazy" to be "sitting around."
