John Kerry’s Freudian slip

By Tom Quiner

Secretary of State John Kerry said something really stupid:

“There’s something different about what happened from Charlie Hebdo, and I think everybody would feel that. There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, OK, they’re really angry because of this and that. This Friday was absolutely indiscriminate. It wasn’t to aggrieve one particular sense of wrong. It was to terrorize people.”

He was talking about the Paris terrorism attacks on Friday.

He quickly caught his error in suggesting that there could ever be a “legitimate” reason for Islamic terrorism.

But this is how liberals feel.

His Freudian slip revealed much about the mindset of this administration.

    Obama’s judgment in selecting his Secretaries of State tell us all we need to know about his presidency.
