Andrea Mitchell Fears France Could ‘Go Too Far’ In Responding To Terrorist Attack (NewsBusters)

Andrea Mitchell, NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and host of MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, sat down with Gerard Araud, France’s Ambassador to the United States, on Monday afternoon to discuss the fallout from last week’s terrorist attack on a French satirical newspaper. 

While the majority of the interview focused on the intelligence risks facing France following the attack, the MSNBC host found time to fret that the country could overreact in fighting terrorism. Mitchell asked Araud “do you fear an anti-Muslim backlash? Do you fear that France could go too far? There are suggestions that this country went too far after 9/11 in some of the security procedures.”
