NBC NEWS

CHRIS HAYES, HOST:  Mr. Secretary, thank you so much for making the time today.

I really appreciate it.

JOHN KERRY, SECRETARY OF STATE:  I’m very happy to be with you.

HAYES:  There’s a — a pretty shocking video by “The New York Times” posted today.  It’s Syrian rebels executing captured Assad soldiers, a gunshot to the back of the head, naked.

If the U.S. attacks Syria, do those men in those videos become, by definition, our allies?

KERRY:  No.  In fact, I believe that those men in those videos are disadvantaged by an American response to the chemical weapons use because it, in fact, empowers the moderate opposition.

We all know there are about 11 really bad opposition groups — so-called opposition.  They’re not — they’re fighting Assad.  They are not part of the opposition that is being supported by our friends and ourselves.  That is a moderate opposition.  They condemn what has happened today and they will — they are and we are busy separating the support we’re getting from any possibility of that support going to these guys.
