Foreign Policy publisher says 'biggest' terror threats come from 'abuse of the environment,' 'corporate greed

News

David Rothkopf, CEO of FP Group, which publishes Foreign Policy magazine, writes on the Boston bombings for CNN.com:

Terror and terrorists are real and their stories are compelling, but we ought to remember that by far the biggest threats we face come from elsewhere—from what might be corporate negligence or greed; from natural disasters or the heedless abuse of the environment; from people who find it far too easy to get their hands on guns or from leaders who twist their interpretation of the Constitution to overreact to one threat even while ignoring and exacerbating another.

In a tweet Tuesday, Rothkopf called his column a "call to get our priorities straight."
