"Our thoughts and prayers go out to those killed and injured in this cowardly act and we extend our deepest condolences to their families and loved ones.

Altogether now, Charlie-Brown's-teacher-voice: "Wah-blah-wah-blah-wah-blah".
Obama will not rest until the perpetrators are brought to justice.
“Condemns in the strongest terms”... that sounds serious... just like their condemnation of the film that caused the deaths of our folks in Benghazi.
Rut-ro...somebody’s in big trouble now.
Poor Obama... this can’t be helping his recently reported mental breakdown.
What is "senseless" about it? By all accounts it seems to have been well planned with a real rational purpose and strategic design behind it.
They are taking revenge for Kenyan actions against their terrorist Islamic movement and throwing their Kenyan enemy into chaos and demonstrating how vulnerable they are to more of the same. This mass murder will rock Kenya for quite a while and warn them to cease and desist any further efforts to resist the Islamists - or there is more in the cards for them. Al-Shaabab will end up losing a dozen foot soldier terrorists but they will kill more than ten times that many civilians including infidel foreigners, ruin an island of commerce and stability in the center of the capitol city, make a huge jihad statement, and spread grief and terror country wide.
There is nothing at all "senseless" about it. Bloody? Yes. Cruel? Yes. Senseless? No.
That description is just more cringing hand-wringing by the diplomatic effetes who can't or won't figure out anything effective or truthful to say about the murderous Islamic enemy.
Coming to a Mall near You!
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms the despicable massacre of innocent men, women and children at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya.”
I wish the State Department would just shut the hell up.I’m sick of there worn out statements about how they condemn the loss of life that has occurred because of these terrorist incident.
Their damn words are so transparent they have NO meaning.I’m sure the terrorist are terribly afraid of the U.S. Department of state,especially under this Disaster of an administration.
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms the despicable massacre of innocent men, women and children at the Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya.....”
Did they send one of Hillary Benghazi’s stern letters to the terrorists?
I suppose such letters are now generated automatically without human intervention thanks to the high skills of the computer programmers employed by the NSA.
No, the who (muslims) or where some of them were from (the US, apparently!) aren’t noteworthy....
That's only useful during election cycles.
“Altogether now, Charlie-Brown’s-teacher-voice: “Wah-blah-wah-blah-wah-blah”
I was thinking about a great software application that would superimpose that over Obama’s voice whenever he’s on TV. Given recent advances in real-time image recognition, this would be possible!
They condemn violent extremism but not one word about Islam. Maybe they are talking about the responders.
How was this a “cowardly” act? I’d say they’ve been bold as brass.
The US is a global laughing stock especially in the Middle East so this letter is a joke at best.
63 dead in Kenya?
73 Christians dead in Pakistan?
What difference does it make?
I am sure you are right. They must have had to bite their tongues just to get the words out. Most of the slime bags probably don't mean it either.
