In the aftermath of the Orlando terror attack, Secretary of State John Kerry says, “The worst thing we can do is engage in trying to point fingers.”

While posing for pictures with the Foreign Minister of Cyprus on Monday, Kerry said, “The worst thing we can do is engage in trying to point fingers at one group or one form of sectarianism or another or one religion or another. Those are not the values of our country.” (RELATED: Trump On Orlando Attack: ‘It’s War, It’s Absolute War’ [VIDEO])
