Embassador Chris Stevens Killed - U.S. Embassy Apologizes To Muslims?
The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three American members of his staff were killed
in the attack on the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi by
protesters angry over a film that told the truth about Islam's Prophet Muhammad
There’s not a syllable wasted in the embassy's statement (below) on condemning the cretins who climbed the embassy walls and tore down the flag — on 9/11. The denunciation is reserved for the blasphemers, who in this case turn out to be Egyptian expats who made an amateur film about Mohammed that’s presumably being used by Islamist demagogues over there to whip up the crowd.
The official statement from the embassy website:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.
Way to go Barack!
