It’s hard to imagine what could strike more fear into the hearts of Islamic terrorists than a love ballad.
At least that’s what the Obama administration must have been thinking when they sent Secretary of State John Kerry to France with singer James Taylor Friday.
Kerry met with French President Francois Hollande to express solidarity with France in the wake of the horrific Islamic terror attacks in recent weeks and to try to make amends for America’s glaring and embarrassing absence from the Paris unity march.
And in the moment that surely sent terrorist groups running for cover and cowering in fear, Secretary Kerry brought out famed crooner James Taylor to sing his hit “You’ve Got A Friend.”
Prior to the trip Kerry described the meeting as a big hug.
“My visit to France is basically to share a big hug for Paris and express the affection of the American people for France and for our friends there who have been through a terrible time,” he said.
