Is this a good idea?

I never was a fan of Tommy Thomson - what a name! I am no expert on terrorism, but it seems to me that saying this in his goodbye speech can't be a very good idea:

"For the life of me, I cannot understand why the terrorists have not attacked our food supply because it is so easy to do," Thompson said as announced his departure before department employees. "We are importing a lot of food from the Middle East, and it would be easy to tamper with that."

For the life of me, I can't understand why he'd let himself be quoting saying that!
