Our fearless Secretary of State recently opened his mouth and stuck his foot in it when talking about terrorism and the media. He apparently doesn’t want people to know what’s happening.

Kerry: Media Should Cover Terrorism Less So People Won’t Know What’s Going On
Secetary of State John Kerry wishes mainstream media coverage were even more biased than it already is — and that more airtime would be dedicated to the dangers of air conditioning units than to terrorism.
During a recent press conference in Bangladesh, our country’s top statesman said that media “would do us all a service” if they simply ceased to cover terrorist attacks because then people “wouldn’t know what’s going on”:
Remember this: 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. 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.
Kerry’s plea that Americans, and indeed world citizenry, be kept shrouded in ignorance drew applause.
The Weekly Standard notes that Kerry’s comments in Bangladesh this week ring similar to words he uttered at the United Nations last September when he discussed ways to combat terrorism.
This administration needs to go.
We need a complete change of the guard in Washington, DC.
