John Kerry To War Protester At Syria Hearing: "When I Was 27 I Had Similar Feelings"

“Secretary Kerry, the American people say no to war. Ban Ki-moon says no to war, the Pope says no to war. We don’t want another war,” Medea Benjamin of Code Pink yelled at the hearing after Kerry was finishing his remarks. “The first time I testified before this committee, when I was 27 years old, I had very similar feelings to that protester,” Kerry said.
