Secretary of State John Kerry has a problem with terrorism, but it’s not what you think.
Rather than focusing on the horrors of ISIS, Kerry is preoccupied with the media’s coverage of terror attacks.
Secretary of State John Kerry argued Monday during a press conference in Bangladesh that the press corps could “do us all a service” if they stopped covering terrorism “quite as much.”
“No country is immune from terrorism,” Kerry told journalists in Dhaka. “It’s easy to terrorize. Government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, seven 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.”
“Perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn’t cover it quite as much,” he added. “People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”
The problem isn’t that people “know too much” about what’s going on, Secretary Kerry.
The problem is that we have a government filled with doormat progressives who go on international apology tours and refuse to call out radical Islamic terror by name.
We don’t need to “know less.” The White House needs to do more to protect Americans and destroy ISIS.
