Kerry: Rich people like me don't engage in terrorism

When this post goes up, it will automatically trigger my 30,000th tweet.

If you needed any more proof that US Secretary of State John FN Kerry is moron, you have it tonight. Here's what Kerry said on Monday (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Let's go to the videotape.

But alongside the ideological issue Kerry also raised the notion of economic factors.
“Getting this right isn’t just about taking terrorists off the street,” he said. “It’s about providing more economic opportunities for marginalized youth at risk of recruitment. In country after country, you look at the demographics – Egypt, the West Bank – 60 percent of the young people either under the age of 30 or under the age of 25, 50 percent under the age of 21, 40 percent under the age of 18, all of them wanting jobs, opportunity, education, and a future.”
Researchers have noted that some of the most prominent jihadist terrorists over the past decade or more, far from being driven by desperation and a lack of economic opportunity, are educated members of their societies.
Osama bin Laden was the son of a billionaire businessman, Ayman al-Zawahiri is a physician and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has an engineering degree.
A similar pattern was evident in south-east Asia, where key members of the al-Qaeda-linked Jemaah Islamiah (JI) terror network were well-educated men.
Tell it to the 19 Saudi hijackers who took part in 9/11. Tell it to the 'Israeli Arab' lawyer who blew herself up in a Haifa restaurant a year later. Engaging in terrorism has nothing to do with one's wealth. It has to do with one's fervor for Islam.

John FN Kerry.... What a moron....

John Kerry has been an intellectual drone and a moral midget all his life. The Swift Boat Veterans had him pegged years ago. As a "limousine liberal" rigid ideologue, he hasn't had a real open, new thought in decades. He fits right in with his White House boss. Birds of a feather.
