I actually believe Kerry's

I actually believe Kerry's comment was a smart-aleck remark that was swiftly taken advantage of by Putin. That's the strategic mind of a chess grandmaster in action. I don't believe the idea had been discussed with Obama previously, otherwise he would've offered it as an alternative to Assad.

Also, please change the thread title. The correct spelling is "Nobel".
