‘My bad’: State Dept. official apologizes for #UnitedForGaza tweet
Washington Times ^ | 7/20/14 | Jessica Chasmar

Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy Richard Stengel gave a peculiar apology to outraged Twitter users on Sunday after he tweeted #UnitedForGaza to his 15,000 followers. In a tweet directed to the State Department, Mr. Stengel said, “Critical for a full, credible and unimpeded intl investigation of crash. Urge Russia to honor it’s [sic] commitment,” Twitchy first reported. After receiving swift backlash, the tweet was deleted, and Mr. Stengel sent out a terse explanation. “Earlier tweet with wrong hashtag was a mistake. My bad,” he said. (Snip) Twitter users weren’t buying Mr. Stengel’s apology.

And it made no sense with what he was saying. So he must have been up to something else.

Cripes I’m sick of these people and I can’t believe we’ve got another 2 yrs + to go with them.

I mean they are imbeciles. That Jen Psaki should be cleaning bathrooms in a Walmart or something, but no, she’s out and about probably making $150K and “representing” our nation.

#MyBad should be the main hashtag for this entire regime.

Once again, when the hypocritical PC crowd apologizes, all is forgiven and forgotten. No one loses friends, business contacts, money, or property.

Fascism is alive and well.

The Obama administration is the answer to the question the entire world has been asking:

“What if the USA government fell into the hands of a gang of freedom hating, arrogant, inept fools?”

The American people aren’t being bought off by rich Arabs... which might be why our ‘leaders’ often stand with terrorists but the American people stand with Israel.
