“My view is that the people of the United States understand that when there is a tragedy that involves the loss of life in an embassy…you bond together as a country, and you don’t make it a political football,” he told reporters Tuesday night. “I don’t remember a political football when 3,000 people died about 40 miles away from here and you had 9/11. There was no political football. We came together as a country. And I think it’s disgraceful to make this a political issue.”
Kerry said that both Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have taken responsibility for what happened.
“That should be enough for people, and it’s a disgrace to come out and make that a political issue,” he said. “A disgrace.”
