State Dept Spox Kirby: ‘No Rationale’ For Terrorism


State Department Spokesperson Adm. John Kirby said that Secretary of State John Kerry’s statement that there was a “rationale” for the Charlie Hebdo attacks was referring to the rationale used by the terrorists, and “There’s no rationale, there’s no justification for terrorism” on Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Wolf.”

Kirby said, “the secretary was simply referring to the rationale that the terrorists themselves, at the time, tried to apply to the Hebdo attacks, and the notion that the Hebdo attacks were in retaliation for a specific thing published in a magazine. But he was absolutely not at all, justifying the senseless taking innocent lives, and the violence, and the terrorism that groups like ISIL inspire, and in fact, conduct and plan. And he talked about this again yesterday, made that very, very clear. There’s no rationale, there’s no justification for terrorism.”
