Skip to comments.Krauthammer: U.S. apology for Koran burning ‘embarrassing,’ ‘groveling’

On Fridays Special Report on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer took strong umbrage with the White Houses decision to apologize at a Virginia mosque for a reportedly accidental burning of Islamic holy documents.
That was embarrassing, what we saw, Krauthammer said. We have gone from apology here to abject self-debasement and groveling. And groveling to whom? To the mob. We should have had a single apology coming from the commander on the ground and thats it. Not from the secretary of defense. Not from the president, of all people.
Krauthammer reminded viewers of the 2010 incident involving Terry Jones, a Florida pastor who was promoting Burn a Koran Day and the administrations reaction to that.
Remember when the president had to pick up the phone when there was a crazy pastor in Florida who wanted a Koran burning and he had to be talked out of it, Krauthammer said. Is the president in charge of the offenses against a certain religious tradition in the world? This is a world in which nobody asked the Islamic conference, the grouping of the 56 Islamic countries, to issue an apology when Christians are attacked and churches are burned in Egypt or in Pakistan. And have we heard a word from any Islamic leader anywhere about the radical Muslims in Nigeria who are not only burning the churches but are burning women and children who are Christian in the churches. When I hear that, Ill expect my president to start issuing apologies.
According to The Washington Post columnist, this response makes the United States look weak and despite looking weak, those on the other side rarely reciprocate.

You don’t need to protect the soldiers either. They can protect themselves, just give them the permission to do that.

Newt said this days ago, Charles.

Why should they reciprocate?
Obama has proven himself and by extention us
as the “weak horse”. What incentive is there
for them to prove themselves weaker. NONE.
This is the US of Obama. He loves it, I’m sure.
"Go Mitt. Go Mitt. Go Mitt"
Krauthammer is Mitt Romney's attack-robot.
Has been for years.
As a result of Romney and Krauthammer, Obama
is the undocumented pRes_ _ent.
Krauthammer should apologize to America IMMEDIATELY.
Ubama certainly fits that bill.
It's not cowardice (although it's an apt description). He is under orders to do what he is doing. This is a deliberate campaign to weaken the U.S., ordered by those who are bankrolling the rats - Obama is just a tool that was placed in the area where it can do the most harm.
Why are we claiming this was accidental.
From what I have read the Korans in question were being written in and used to send these messages out to the Taliban. They collected these Korans and someone made the decision to burn them. I see nothing accidental.
We burned the things because they had been desecrated by Muslims who worote in them. The riots and protests are all BS.Just Afghani’s using this as an excuse to do what they do.
How can a nation stay a power when this crapola is allowed to daily/ hourly indoctrinate a world. How could we have ever got to this point of no return.
Anyone out there who don’t believe the illegal undocumented alien in the Whit-Hut, and usurper, is a full fledge Muzzzie are total naive and are calling for sharia law!!!
I am sorry, I do not have an answer.
Really Charles? Embarassed? We are NOT embarassed... the country is OUTRAGED and we do NOT aplogize. obama should be comforting the families of the fallen soldiers instead he apologizes to the enemy. No, embarassment is when you do something silly or dumb or something like that. emb arassed? Hardly Charles... hardly.
