After the murders of our Embassy staff in Libya, the folllowing tweet was released by the State Department on the Cairo Embassy attacks:
“We condemn the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”
It has since been deleted.
Obama has finally issued a condemnation of the murders and attacks, but not after first attacking Mitt Romney for having the audacity to denounce the State Department’s tweet – which Hillary Clinton doubled down on:
“The U.S. deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation”
I don’t buy it. That tweet was cleared or encouraged by the Administration.
This article would be funny if it weren’t serious, as the Obama Administration was forced to denounce the tweet from it’s own State Department.
So much for the Arab Spring.
