Hillary Doubled Down on Egypt 'Apology'
Breitbart ^ | September 12, 2012 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 09/12/2012 5:53:12 AM PDT by Unam Sanctam

For the second time in as many weeks, the State Department has contradicted President Barack Obama, as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton re-affirmed the apologetic stance disavowed earlier this evening by the White House in reacting to the storming of the U.S. embassy in Cairo by a mob of radical Egyptian Al Qaeda sympathizers on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Clinton's statements on the day's events, released through the State Department's website and Twitter feed, condemn "in the strongest possible terms" an attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya in Benghazi that left one American dead, but offer no condemnation of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

Instead, Clinton reiterates an apology issued earlier today by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo--now deleted--which said: "We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."

"The U.S. deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others," Clinton said. "Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation," she added.

However, the White House has distanced itself from such apologies, according to Politico, saying that they were not "cleared by Washington."

Evidently, there is some discord in Washington.

While all of this is going on in Egypt in Libya, look a bit to the Southeast and Al Jazeera is reporting an attempted assassination of Somalia’s newly elected President while he was meeting with Kenya’s foreign minister.

Here in the time machine, those of you who are too young to have watched the Carter fiasco in 1979, can now watch the replay.

It will be instructive to see how Romney responds to this over the next several days.

I expect to ralph up my meals multiple times over the next few days listening to the Obama defenders defend the indefensible.

Hillary may be blowing any chance she had for running in 2016 if these uprisings that she so confidently cultivated in her “Arab Spring” turn into killing fields for U.S. diplomats who trusted the State Dept.

Who would vote for someone so totally wrong in assessing this situation? Oh, that’s right we are dealing with the most ignorant electoral base on the planet, the Democrat Party.

Where is the American outrage?
What kind of security do they have at the Embassies?
Why are there no dead or injured attackers?
How were they allowed to leave afterward? Were there any arrests at all?

Both Egypt and Libya are powder kegs that 0bama helped fill up.

This is one I just don’t get. Yes, Hillary is a liberal and was a “blame America first” zealot in her younger days, but she moved back to the center, voted for the Iraq War and you’d think that with Bill advising her, she’d be more politically attuned. Is it just fear that other embassy workers are going to get killed if she didn’t do this? I don’t get it.

Not always, Hillary. It depends on which religion is being denigrated.

Clinton's statement is nothing but political gobbledygook.

Maybe it’s time to quietly hold Mecca hostage.

That is, let it be known among the top players in Islam that we have had enough of their barbarism, and unless they put a firm lid on it, there is going to be an extremely dirty nuclear detonation that is not only going to annihilate Mecca, but make many square miles of it and surrounding it uninhabitable to any form of life for 10,000 or more years.

We do not care if they have to behead a million of their more terroristic brethren, if that is what is necessary to bring this crapola to a halt. But they have a very limited and firm timetable to do so, or bye-bye Mecca, for good.

That is, unless they think that Allan will intervene to prevent it. But they shouldn’t place any bets on that.

Obama’s Statement on the Muslim attacks on American missions

To all my Muslim friends. Peace be unto you in the name of Mohammed, blessed be his name.

If you MUST kill Americans, please try to refrain from hacking their bodies to pieces as it makes them difficult to identify.

Thank you.

Statement from Mitt Romney

American Embassies are AMERICAN SOIL. If you attack another American Embassy, unlike in Cairo where you morons violated our territory and destroyed property and where the Marine sentries were ordered by the Muslim friendly Obama administration to STAND DOWN, our security forces will FIRE FOR EFFECT. If necessary, I will dispatch carrier based air cover and additional ground forces to protect our people and remove them from your clutches.

The Marine Hymn contains the line “…to the shores of Tripoli.” If you wish to continue your insane tribal and sectarian madness, we will be back just long enough to bring out every American citizen then leave you to your national insanity until you’re all dead.

Well in the case of a Muslim or another oppressed minority it is we can see,

I didnt see them saying that in the Zimmerman Martin case. Obama said that Martin was like the son he always wanted.

Be cool everybody.

We may be witnessing the destruction of the Obama administration.

It will be telling and interesting to see the response of the Obama regime.

If Obama and Clinton had any honor, dignity or integrity, they would resign today for all the destruction and misery they have imposed on our Country.

We already know their mindset since their first response was to condemn US for "insulting mohammed"..

Pay attention Pres Zer0 & Ms Clinton:

..mohammad cannot be insulted, he himself is insulting to the world.

If HRC does want to run in 2016, her first order of business is to screw Obama’s chances of getting reelected, which is what she is deliberately doing by undercutting the WH’s disavowal of the initial US State Dept response to the Muslim attack on our embassy. By the time HRC runs in 2016, her actions in this situation will have little effect on millions of dopey voters.

HRC knows EXACTLY what she is doing, as does Bill Clinton, who seems to be campaigning for Obama, but isn't. They are both undermining Obama, about which I am very pleased.

Islam sucks.

Mohammed was a pedophile.

Just look at the horrifying conditions in which Islam’s billions of adherents live. Your religion begets your society, and muslim societies suck everywhere, 100% of the time.

The Koran states that Mohammed married Aisha when she was 6 years old, and consummated the relationship when she was 9 YEARS OLD. That’s pedophilia in any society in any era.

Islam sucks. Mohammed was a pedophile.

In the United States, we have a perfect First Amendment right to say what we think. I don’t much care whether Muslims are offended by what I think or say.

We also have a perfect Second Amendment right to help ensure the validity of our First Amendment rights.

Ever heard of the “October Surprise” with Reagan and making an agreement with the Iranians to hold the hostages until after he took office?

When that claim was first made, everyone thought it was just the fringe lunatics on the left.

Then over time it became mainstream with the help of the MSM and there was even an investigation by a dem congress.

People on the left still believe it.

The exact same thing happened with 9/11 and “Bush knew”.

It's not intended to help Zippo in this election but to help Hillary in the next election.
