The White House is defending President Obamas apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Qurans in Afghanistan, which was labeled a surrender by one Republican presidential candidate.
Josh Earnest, White House principal deputy press secretary, told reporters Friday that Obama thought an apology to Karzai was appropriate.
He's putting the best interests and safety and welfare of our servicemembers and our civilians who are currently serving in Afghanistan right now, Earnest said. We have seen a spike in violence around this mistake, and the president believed it was in the best interest of their safety to make it clear that an apology was appropriate.
Earnest said that Obama consulted with his security team before he made the decision to issue the apology.

I expect that behavior from an ass like Obama. I don’t expect it from his “security” team or his “generals.” We apologize because an entire civilization, whom we’re helping, is too stupid, too backward, to make rudimentary ethics judgments, who value paper and ink more highly than a human life? This is beyond absurd.
The “Raith” can have him to feed on, but they’d probably reject taking him.
A spike of violence indeed. The AP map of this shows the areas affected and number of demonstraters escalating daily. Afghan Spring.
All they need is an excuse.
Well yes Barak, sometimes stabbing our troops in the back will be the easier way out, but should you do it?
This slimy Kenyan would throw any military person under the bus to appease his fellow 6th century sand monkeys.
One can only imagine how deep the communist infestation is in the dumbocrap party as there has to be some democrats who have some level of patriotism yet they are stone cold silent.
He is a traitor to the Constitution, the Founders, our Military and of course to all of us.
The fact that this traitor is still held in high esteem by the MSM does not bode well for the future of this country.
Barry is but a symptom of a brain-dead electorate.
If good decent people can be tricked into voting for this evil, we are screwed.
Those there right now????
As opposed to those who were there dying.....
I feel He, our great Leader Obama and his family should go personally....
No security detail.....
Just walk in the streets with the loving Muslim faithful, peace loving, as that is what we are told....
Well, that would halt his next four years...... or it 5 years..... I do not know now, I am still trying to work out how the heck to come up with the name of the 57th state of the USA.....
Vote for Dictatorship..... vote for your death.
Apologize? This is what it should be: “Sorry we are trying to drag you into civilization, and that we burned the Satanic verses in the process. Now you have 30 minutes to clear out or we will open fire.”
“We have seen a spike in violence around this mistake..”
The biggest mistake is Buckwheat sitting in our Whitehouse.
Instead, the administration is cowering in front of the rabid dog of Islam, and that only makes it froth at the mouth more.
If Catholics raised half the ruckus that Muslims do over slights, there would be no debate over who will buy what pill.
I do apologize to the people of Afghanistan. we shouldn’t have burned your “holy” book. We should have done the job properly and used a few nukes to burn your shithole of a country to the ground.
We are using Roberts rules of order and they are using the law of the jungle.
Who do you think will win?
LOL works for me.
All it will take is one glassy desert and the rest of the mideast will tone it down in a hurry.
The White House Knows what the enemy knows -as was noted during the Founding era by a Frenchman named Montesquieu—
the bloody baggers are as the Angel blessed Hagar the Egyptian carrying Ishmael inside her , He will be a wild man,his hand will be against every man —and every mans hand against him. Genesis chapter 16: Montesquieu noted the Muslim were given to despotic rule and the Christian to democracy.
The WhiteHouse is AFRAID of the Muslim -but acknowledges it has nothing to fear from the Christian So they treat us with respect -and bow and scrape and beg from their Islamic Lords.
For Our Government has already submitted to bloody Islam.
"That said, I have directed Secretary of Defense Leon Penetta to have the 2 bodies buried in the desert and to convene a courts martial to try them 'in absentia' for stealing Afghan bullets and concealing them (bullets)on their persons. If they are found guilty, which they will be, as I, the Commander-in-Chief of the United States, have deemed it, effigies of the 2 shall be fabricated and tied to a street light post on Wall Street and executed, again 'in absentia', by 57 muslim soldiers....one for every one of the 57 states. May God bless Afghanistan and the peaceful people of Islam. Ali Akbar."
Someone needs to tell this @$$hole that it isn't about right now, or about the safety of our servicemembers. One can always retreat to safety, or never have shown up in the first place. This is, or was, being done with our future in mind. I wonder what the brave leader would do if he discovered a bee hive in his back yard where Sasha and Malia liked to play.
It is never in anyone’s best interest to show cowardice.
When you show cowardice to an enemy they will take advantage of that cowardice.
