Skip to comments.State Dept. apologizes for promoting Muslim cleric who backed killing of US soldiers
Posted on 05/27/2014 4:10:28 PM PDT by kingattax
The State Departments Counter Terrorism (CT) Bureau apologized on Tuesday for promoting a controversial Muslim scholar whose organization has reportedly backed Hamas and endorsed a fatwa authorizing the murder of U.S. soldiers in Iraq.
The apology came on the heels of a Friday Washington Free Beacon report detailing the CT Bureaus promotion of Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah, the vice president of a radical Muslim scholars group that was founded by a radical Muslim Brotherhood leader who has called for the death of Jews and Americans.
Bin Bayyah himself is one of several clerics who endorsed a 2004 fatwa, or religious order, endorsing the killing of U.S. soldiers fighting in Iraq.

Apologies mean nothing!
Get back to us after you drop the “cleric” out of an airplane flying at 30000 feet. I’ll accept that form of apology.
Well, it’s OK then.
Treason, as clear as daylight.
Treason, supported by the hated, EXEMPT Congress.
Treason against the American people.

State Department, the same that allowed the murder of 4 US citizens, one an Ambassador! More lies from the 0 regime!
The last 5+ years have been nothing but an apology from the Obama regime!
You don’t apologize for a ‘mistake’ like this. You lose your job.
Notice what they didn’t say?
They didn’t say that they were rescinding the promotion.
They didn’t say that they were firing him immediately.
And notice that no journalist has even bothered to ask them about either of these two actions.
And you expected “WHAT” from the State Department? At one time they had good intelligence operations, but under Obama, the State Dept. has been so bastardized that they often don’t know who our enemies are.
Remember, Hillary worked with a communist party-dominated law firm, Treuhaft, Burstein, Garry, etc. on a Black Panther torture murder case concerning one of their own members who they falsely accused of being a govt informant.
Later she recommended Castro asset Prof. Johnnetta Cole to be considered for Secy of Education (under Bill’s first administration).
Her personal die, Huma Abedin has a family (and herself as well) that have/had/worked for the Moslem Brotherhood/fronts.
Secy of State John Kerry. Betrayed his fellow soldiers/sailors in So. Vietnam, left a man behind, talked illegally with the enemy in Paris, called our men war criminals, and then participated in “peace fronts” that were run by Soviet operatives/assets (Feinglass, Weiss, Dellinger, etc) during the remainder of the VN war.
He also worked with communists and communist propagandistists (Tony Avirgan, Gary Porter, etc), on the so-called “Iran-Contra” investigation which proved a very expensive, multi-million dollar dud/farce re “cocaine” and the contras.
Kerry later helped set up ties with Hanoi that ignored “live sightings” of our men from Vietnam (who were known to be alive and in Hanoi’s hands).
The State Department has become a political “eunuch” under Obama and his marxist minions and fools.
The disaster in the Ukraine caught them by surprise, as have many other major foreign events over the years.
Only a thorough cleaning from top to bottom can salvage “Foggy Bottom” from becoming a permanent cesspool of incompetence, political cronyism, and white-flag policies.
Hope Mr. Snowden finds the key to this incompetence....aka....treason.
We’re really sorry you caught us.
Another one of hatellary’s accomplishments?
What? Our bad? We okay now?
Past time to clean house. After he’s had time to pick up and pass on a few tidbits .......geeze!
But it’s a religion. Would they apologize for promoting a Catholic? /s
Tehy apologized but did nothing about him? Or did they simply promote him again to an even higher position on the QT?
words are cheap... fire his a$$
One islamist out. Big deal. The administration and State Department are saturated with them. The only way to flush them out is to treat them as the nazis they are.
islam=nazism. A definite shared community of interests.
The State Department has been anti America at least since the League of Nations.
Apologized for getting caught.
Inasmuch as "Foggy Bottom" has been a bastion of left-wing drivel for more than a century, wouldn't you say that it has been a permanent cesspool in all that time?
How could you go about a 'thorough cleaning from top to bottom' of an un-American institution which has been thus for more than 100 years? A better solution involves 'Carthage protocols', I'm afraid...
Somebody else who 'gets it'...
'Foggy Bottom' has been anti-American for far longer than most folks realize. The entire structure should be given 'the Carthage treatment'...
Cleaning out the State Dept. means promoting a pro-America mentality in the first place, something long forgotten except by Reagan (and he inherited the mental assholes of Carter, Vance, Brezinski, and Warren, 4 of the biggest losers and cowards in modern American history).
I knew some very dedicated State Dept. people, esp. during Vietnam, but LBJ’s McNamara retreat advisors wiped out the sacrifices our men and women made.
First rule: No donor nominations for Ambassador. Only those who can speak the language of the country to which they are being assigned, and who know where it is.
Second rule: better intelligence from the SD’s intell units. You’ve got to know everything you can about a country that you are dealing with.
Third: Personnel: No drunks, sex addicts or weirdos as employees.
Fourth: NO POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!
Fifth: Total force protection for every embassy and/or consulate.
Sixth: The Carthage Option. Level the place, salt it, and start over again. Worked for Rome, didn’t it?
