Former American ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton speaks with FNC's Bill Hemmer about the terrorist attack yesterday at a German Christmas market. He blames German chancellor Angela Merkel for allowing terrorists to enter the country posing as refugees. JOHN BOLTON: She's already tried to take some steps inside Germany --calling on bans of women wearing burkas and the like, trying to go after the most visible manifestation of the rise of Islam in Germany. I think the feeling that many Germans have had, an are reluctant to say out loud given Germany's history, is that they feel they've lost control of their country. It is not a feeling that is unknown elsewhere in Europe, but Merkel has been the biggest symbol across the continent of people who supported this policy. It has aroused a lot of resentment outside of Germany... and I think the question is whether enough Germans believe it was Angela Merkel's mistake and she loses elections next year.
