Kennedy Jr. speaks to Winfrey in an interview for O Magazine about if he has a fear of terrorist attacks in the United States.
I think the worst thing this White House has done is to use fear as a governing tool. No, I don’t fear for our country in terms of an attack. They’ve used the excuse that 9/11 suddenly put us in the most dangerous part of our history. That’s nonsense. When you and I were raised, there were 25,000 nuclear warheads pointed at America, and we faced absolute annihilation. That was a dangerous time. When George Washington fought the British and his troops didn’t have shoes, that was a dangerous time. And during the Civil War, if we had lost Gettysburg, the United States of America would have disappeared.
