Posted on 09/16/2012 6:55:20 PM PDT by tobyhill
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told me this morning on This Week that the United States is not impotent in the face of violent anti-American protests sweeping the Muslim world.
After showing Rice a map of protests in 33 countries around the world in recent days, I asked Rice, President Obama pledged to repair Americas relationships with the Muslim world. Why does the U.S. seem so impotent? And why is the U.S. even less popular today in some of these Muslim and Arab countries than it was four years ago?
Were not impotent, were not even less popular, to challenge that assessment, Rice said in response. What happened this week in Cairo, in Benghazi and many other parts of the region was a result, a direct result, of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the U.S. government had nothing to do with, which we have made clear is reprehensible and disgusting.

I heard her interview today. She’s still blaming the violence on the movie.
Unfortunately with BO as the leader we are.
>> Were not impotent, were not even less popular, to challenge that assessment, Rice said in response.
A contradiction in certain circles.
I must be getting tired.
When I read the header I thought it said US not IMPORTANT in the ME.
Good Night. :)
A new campaign slogan: “Vote Obama - We’re Not Even Less Popular!”
The US is ABSOLUTELY IMPOTENT in the Middle Eastern-Muslim world.
Want to know why? Because we don’t have guys like the WWII generation running sh*t, that’s why. We don’t have guys like Black Jack Pershing running SH*T, that’s why.
The muslims in the ME only understand one thing, as they so aptly demonstrate, VIOLENCE. When that violence is brought to them, they are the biggest PU**IES in the world. But when they know nothing will happen to them, they are the biggest and deadliest opportunists in the world
Oh really, Susan???
More like Hussein isn’t as impo’tent as he thinks...
Condi has gone over to the dark side.
Well I’m sure her bos is trying to make us as weak as he can in the muslim world and elsewhere.
You’ve got a real problem if you have to assure people that you aren’t impotent.
Four years of amateur hour, holy smoke .....
The only other entity that is saying this is Al Qaeda, which means that the Obama Administration and Al Qaeda are in lock-step agreement.
That is SUSAN Rice, not Condi.
That is SUSAN Rice, not Condi.
Exactly...you nailed it. While not popular, total annihilation of terrorist nations would give us a breather for a generation or two. We don’t seem to have any problems with Japan, do we.
different Rice. This one works for obama.
That’s Susan Rice, not Condi Rice.
Your comprehension sucks my friend
