While in Bangladesh Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke at length about terrorism and about the fact that it has a devastating effect on many nations.
He began by emphasizing the point that terrorism can happen anywhere:
“No country is immune from terrorism. It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
But if you decide one day you’re going to be a terrorist and you’re willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill some people. You can make some noise.”
But the eyebrows started to raise when Kerry added a suggestion regarding the way the media handles terrorism:
“Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”
And the comments rolled in:

The media would do us a service if it didn't cover a self-absorbed bozo like @JohnKerry. Does he know he's OUR sec'y of State?

John Bolton, former Ambassador to the UN, appeared on “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday and noted just how absurd Kerry’s comments were.
Bolton was sure to add this zinger of a message to Kerry: “If you really think that less publicity would help reduce the terrorist threat, you should apply for a job to be editor-in-chief of ‘The Onion’.”
