State Dept.: 'This Isn't About a Religion'
by Patrick Goodenough
Tuesday's terrorist attack in Brussels was not about religion but a "depraved ideology," State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters.
"This isn't about a religion," he said. "This is about a warped and brutal, depraved ideology that continues to be attractive to a small number of people in the Muslim faith – radicals and extremists."
"And we don't believe that it is indicative in any way of the Muslim faith or the people who practice Islam as a religion," Kirby continued. "But it is a group that remains deadly, remains lethal. And we are going to remain focused on defeating them."
