Rep. Rogers slams State Department for Pakistan ads denouncing anti-Islamic film ^ | September 23, 2012 | unattributed

A leading House Republican criticized the Obama administration Sunday for running ads in Pakistan denouncing the anti-Islamic film that allegedly sparked violent and deadly protests across the Middle East and North Africa, calling the roughly $70,000 project a “horrible idea.”

“I think it was a horrible idea,” said Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. “It gave credibility and it gave a permission slip to Al Qaeda, to Pakistani officials.”

The ad features President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denouncing the 14-minute Internet film trailer “The Innocence of Muslims,” purportedly by South California filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.

The State Department reportedly paid seven Pakistani stations to run the ad.

“I don’t know who gave them the advice,” Rogers said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “It was horrible advice. It has exacerbated the situation.”

The administration has said the attacks that began Sept. 11 and spread to more than 20 countries were in response to the film and not directed at the U.S. government.

It's a shame that anyone has to come out and state something so obvious, but someone has to do it.

It's a sorry state of affairs when our Executive Department apologizes to the scourge of Western Civilization for a video that tells the truth about the bloodthirsty warlord, megalomaniac and pedophile who is regarded as "Prophet" by that misbegotten, evil cult!

They have abandoned the values upon which this greatest of Nations was founded and the whirlwind that will be unleashed upon us will be cataclysmic!

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

GREAT POST!!!!!!!!

Amen !!!

And thank you Rep. Rogers for nailing it down. It is awful to learn that those two weasels PAID with our money to be on Pakistani TV apologizing for freedom of speech and art in America (in form of movie making) and that they also stressed that they were not at fault, were not accountable for the utube producer's movie.

Seems like hillary and obama WANT to make certain that every single muslim fanatic gets freaked out....

We are being lead by people who do not like America as she stands. They do not agree with the foundations of this nation and think that their ideology trumps our forefathers' wisdom....liberals are unable to learn from history.
