Ir seems the State Dept and White House have misplaced the statement condemning the 77 Christians massacred in Pakistan. I am sure they will post that soon.....

So....where is the condemnation of the antics of the “vetted rebels” in Syria committing similar atrocities who are supported by McCain, Graham, Kerry, and Obama?

It must be hard to condemn Islamist extremists when you have so many Muslim Brotherhood members imbedded in the White House, CIA, DoD, and State Department. I could see how it could be delayed.

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 notice that there is no condemnation of the thugs themselves -- just their despicable massacre.

Surely they have some stronger terms to throw at them that will deter these unfortunate occurences.

Given the muslim massacres sponsored by the US government in places like Bosnia, Kosovo, Libya, Egypt, Syria, Pakistan, and the Caucasus, the State Department condemnation of the massacre in Kenya lacks all credibility!!!!

Then there were those muslim massacres in Nairobi a few years back, perpetrated by a cutthroat gang that included obama's brother!!!! The Kenyan obamas are still at large, and doing their dirty work!

PHOOEY!!!!

Yep. No mention whatever of Islam or Muslim. They are terrorists, or extremists. Extremists are kind of like Teabaggers, one might think.

The Clown Prince nobama and his minions never note that it is usually moozlums who murder everyone who isn’t them (then, too, they also love to murder those of other sects of moozlimism). NEVER.

No mention of these latest murderers being muslim terrorists. Or how we will assist Kenya with hellfire from above to target the islamist leaders. Pathetic whitehouse remains limply pathetic.

That and $2.00 will get you a cup of burnt coffee at Starbucks.

Too bad they didn't have the guts to condemn the root cause - the insane Islamic religion death cult.

“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.

We commend (those)... who have stepped forward to help their fellow Kenyan citizens and citizens of other countries affected by this senseless violence.

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.

“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.

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.

“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.

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.
