This week, John Kerry visited Bangladesh – a recent target of multiple terror attacks. While delivering a speech, Kerry veered off course a bit and is paying the price in heavy criticism.
Kerry said, “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. People wouldn’t know what’s going on.”
Conservatives have blasted Kerry’s remarks and the overall Obama administration attempts to downplay the seriousness of the terror threat throughout the world.
At the White House, spokesman Josh Earnest said the comment reflected President Barack Obama’s desire to keep terrorist attacks in perspective.
