CNN intelligence and security analyst Bob Baer was on set for the network’s rolling coverage Thursday night of the terror attack in Nice, France but he seized on the tragedy to bash Israelis for responding to similar truck attacks by going “far to the right” along with those who support Brexit and the French political party National Front. 

With the bodies still yet to scattered out on the streets, Baer complained to CNN host Erin Burnett that the Israelis have suffered tragedies like what transpired in southern France but responded by “driv[ing] Isareli politics far to the right and put the whole population at risk as well as knives.”
