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.
Let him know that you appreciate what he is saying.
