John Kerry Thinks Americans Shouldn’t Fear Terrorists & the Only Reason That They Do Is the Media

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:

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’.”
