Twenty years ago, photographer Fernando Pereira was killed when the Greenpeace boat Rainbow Warrior was bombed in Aukland Harbor by French secret service agents, in retaliation for Greenpeace protests of French nuclear testing. The plan to sink the boat was later traced to the very top levels of the French government.

On June 22, on his MSNBC show The Situation, conservative talkshow host Tucker Carlson had this to say:

CARLSON: Actually, I am objectively pro-France. You know, France blew up the Rainbow Warrior, that Greenpeace ship in Auckland Harbor in the ’80s. And I’ve always respected them …

RACHEL MADDOW: That made you like them?

CARLSON: Yes. Yes. It won me over.
