Really makes you feel secure, huh?

“Well, obviously, people have heard about the events that took place in Russia previously. And there’s been a lot of chatter about security and it’s a concern, but it’s not something – I mean, if somebody said to me, ‘I’m thinking of going to the Olympics,’ I’d say, ‘Go and have a terrific time,'” Kerry told Al Koken of Comcast SportsNet in an interview.

“And there’s huge security, there’s been an enormous amount of preparation, and I can’t tell people that – I think everybody has to take precautions as we do anywhere now. Look at the Boston Marathon for instance. Any sporting event, any global event, you want to take precautions. But I believe huge efforts have been made, the security is strong, and I would say to anybody who asked me, ‘Should I go?’ I’d say, ‘Yeah, and have a great time.'”

How’d that work out last April 15?
