Secretary of State John Kerry argued in a speech Monday that the media should stop covering terrorism so much and that it would be helpful if people didn’t know what was happened, the Weekly Standard reports.
“Remember this: No country is immune from terrorism,” he told the press in Dhaka, Bangladesh. “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,” Kerry added. “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.”
