Kerry in leaked audio: “I lost the argument” for use of force in Syria


Question: Do you think this is true, or is this just another selfish and imprudent attempt at re-writing history by John Kerry?

From CNN:
“Secretary of State John Kerry’s frustration with the failure of American diplomacy was on display as he defended US efforts to help end the five-year civil war in Syria during a meeting last week with a group of Syrian civilians, according to an audio recording obtained by CNN… 
“I think you’re looking at three people, four people in the administration. I lost the argument. I’ve argued for the use of force. I’m the guy who stood up and announced that we’re going to attack Assad for the use of weapons,” Kerry is heard telling the Syrian attendees, referring to internal deliberations within the administration of President Barack Obama that followed Assad’s use of chemical weapons in 2013. 
Kerry also faulted Congress for failing to support such a retaliatory strike, saying, “The bottom line is that Congress refused even to vote to allow that.” 
“We have a Congress that will not authorize our use of force,” he added, explaining that a new military intervention would be difficult to bring about…”

Ben (Israel) has said that Kerry has the intellect of a 12 yr old. He was being generous.
