Maybe they’re not the best and brightest.

A handful of Harvard University students surveyed on the distinguished grounds believe America is a greater threat to world peace than Islamic State terrorists, according to a video posted by Campus Reform.

Interviewer and frequent Fox News guest Caleb Bonham asked students, “Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the U.S.?” for the campus watchdog group for conservative students.

He received a more critical view of America than the ISIS terrorists behind several beheadings of U.S. and British citizens.

“I think American imperialism and our protection of oil interests in the Middle East are destabilizing the region and allowing groups like ISIS to gain power,” said one female student, donning a crimson Harvard sweatshirt. “We are at some level the cause of it.”

Another male student, smoking a cigarette, agreed that the U.S. is the root of many of the world’s problems.

“As a western civilization, we’re to blame for a lot of the problems that we’re facing now,” he said. “I don’t think anyone would argue that we didn’t create the problem of ISIS ourselves.”

After the interviews, which Campus Reform does to expose biases on college campuses, Bonham took to FoxNews.com to express his own opinion about the students.

“This video demonstrates the absurdity behind the ‘bash America’ fad,” he said. “Unfortunately, too many students think it is intellectual to try and piece together a reason why America is a greater threat than this terrorist organization trying to establish a caliphate through public executions, bombings and beheadings.”
