Kerik: Good That French Magazine Will Resume Publication

By    |   Thursday, 08 Jan 2015 03:19 PM

Former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik said he had to credit the decision by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo to resume publication after an attack that killed 12 in their Paris offices on Wednesday.

Kerik told Newsmax TV's "America's Forum" it was a message that needed to be sent "to the rest of the world."

"I give credit to the magazine in Paris. I hear they're going to be up and running, and they're going to be back in publication," Kerik said Thursday. "We're not going to cower. We're not going to stop. We're not going to live in fear. We're going to continue to live in freedom. Freedom, democracy, liberty, freedom of the press, freedom of expression — they're not going to change the way we live or operate."

Kerik said what he took away from the attack, purportedly by gunmen with ties to al-Qaida, was the precision with which they carried out the assault.

"The thing that stands out to me the most about the Paris attack was the operational capability of these guys, the way they operated, the way they conducted the attack," he said.

"There was military-type tactics. I don't think this is the first time they did this."

Kerik said the gunmen appeared "very calm" and looked as if they had "trained extensively for this event," adding that precautions against terror attacks in the U.S. likely were not generally visible to the public.

"There are a number of things that go on that you guys wouldn't see or wouldn't hear about, and I don't think the general public should know," he said. "Sometimes it's better that the general public, especially the terrorists, have no idea what we’re doing."
