Obama Sends Apology Letter To Karzai Following Quran Incident

The Afghan President’s office announced that it had received a letter from President Barack Obama apologizing for the burning of Qurans at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, The Associated Press reported.

According to the news outlet, the statement from President Hamid Karzai’s office said the U.S. ambassador delivered the letter on February 23. In the apology, Obama expressed his “deep regret for the reported incident” and offers his “sincere apologies.”

The statement from Karzai’s office noted that Obama wrote: “The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.”

CBS News reported that two U.S. troops have been shot to death and four more wounded, as an Afghan soldier turned his gun on his allies in apparent anger over the Quran-burning incident.

A statement from the International Security Assistance Force – Afghanistan, the international coalition in the nation, confirmed that the two American soldiers were killed in the Eastern part of the country by an individual “wearing an Afghan National Army uniform.”

    Here’s a toughie for you Obummer suck-ups. HOW do you define a leader? Does a leader make promises that can’t be kept? Does a leader make your leg tingle? Does a leader think nothing of spending and wasting and printing billions and trillions of dollars that America DOESN’T have?
    Does a leader TALK about getting us out of wars, but just can’t find the courage to do the right thing and make an EXIT and keep us OUT of other wars? Does a leader rely on lies, promises, “hope and change” and ‘compassion’ based on Marxian rhetoric?
    Does a leader still blame the last W H resident while he has done NOTHING to compensate for GB’s flaws? Does a leader demand to be seen as a world-class intellect while he prances around America like a reincarnated Stepin Fetchit?
    You can ‘define’ a leader any way you want, BUT if the reality doesn’t match the words, the promises and the RESULTS, what you have is anything BUT a “leader.”
    You might have a leedur or a prez or even an incompetent, community organizing hack, but you do NOT have a true LEADER.

    • Joe H

      sc,
      Another appology from Odumberer!!! The fact of the matter is these books were ALREADY DEFACED!!! they had messages of extremism written on the edges of the pages!!! Quit appologizing and get the US troops OUT!!!

      • http://naver samurai

        I agree with you fellow patriot. We should bring them home. Let’s put them on our southern boarder to keep the illegals out. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. “Don’t apologize. It’s a sign of weakness.”

      • Nadzieja Batki

        How is this for another scenario that the muslims themselves defaced and burned the korans to start up a fracus so they could start demonstrating.

      • brianS

        Joe H, I think Obama should apoligize to the muslims. Apologize that when they burnt the quorans that they should have been attached to a muslim when they did it. Apologize for being tardy and that not enough muslims have been killed. Last troops out of afghanistan, NUKE it.

      • http://firefox wog1

        The books can be replaced if warranted but the lives of the two soldiers cannot Drop a bomb on the way out.

      • http://comcast JimBob

        You’re right JoeH. We lost another two soldiers at the hands of a fanatic in a military uniform over what should be a non-issue. This is what happens when you try to reason with or democratize stone-age people. Russia got their butts kicked in Afghanistan and now we’re getting ours. It is way past time to get out of these countries, quit meddling in their affairs and bring our soldiers back home to protect American from inside America. I couldn’t possibly care less about Libya or Syria. While we’re at it, let’s cut off every cent of funding, and for crying out loud, quit bowing. I think obama has a mid-section hinge that causes him to bow to “leaders” of these countries.

      • Joe H

        Jimbob,
        Their own religeon calls writting in the column of the koran blasphemy and one of the remedies listed is BURNING the DEFACED BOOK!!! WHAT UTTER STUPIDITY!!!

    • http://yahoo don

      i agree. all obunhole has done is fooled a lot of people by tellin them what they wanna hear. thats how he got elected. fooled everyone. gifted as a bs’er. failure as a leader

      • Michael J.

        don,
        speak for yourself, I was never fooled by the annointed one. In fact I told everyone that would listen that he was not out fix anything, to the contrary, he hoped to change America by destroying capitalism and ushering in socialism and one world governance.

    • Paul Kenneth

      “…hold accountable those responsible.” Ah, now those are some scary words from the prez. Here we go again on yet another military witch-hunt against our military. The same folk who are trying to protect us will once again become political scapegoats.
      Now, how do you think the prez would react, what do you think would happen, if some Afghans burned a stack of bibles? It probably wouldn’t even make it onto his blotter. After all, we wouldn’t want to offend our Afghan/Muslim brethren by calling attention smoething like that now, would we?

      • carrobin

        Burning bibles doesn’t provoke violent attacks because Jews and Christians acknowledge that the Bible is a book, of which there are many copies. The worship of the Koran and the volatility of Muslims make (yet another) problem in dealing with the Islamic world. I’ve often wondered if we all burned a Koran every time a Muslim extremist blew something up, killed a non-Muslim, or abused a Muslim woman who wasn’t doing what he told her to do, would things calm down? Or would they just take it as more reason to blow things up? (I’m an Obama supporter, by the way. And I don’t think he had much choice about apologizing, because those guys will blow things up.)

      • Joe H

        So Carrobin, you think we should deal with them as a rabbit deals with a fox?? IN FEAR?? I guarantee if you do that, they WILL ATTACK!! You can not show fear or weakness to these extremists!!!

        Bring all troops home…..not one more life lost for this fraud and Sunni Muslim.

  • bruce

    you have to admire obama for what he does well. he apologizes to everyone (except the israeli’s of course) and bows pretty good too. he is the first president we have had that is an embarrassment everywhere he goes or when he talks.

    after apologizing to afghanistan he then blamed the rise in gas prices, not to his closing the gulf, or canceling federal lands that bush had opened, but, rather back to blame. it’s the republicans fault. we all can drive our cars on wind power and heat our homes in winter with solar power. right?

    if he keeps up the good work he should lose most the jewish vote, most the catholic vote and those of faith …all. he has thrown christians and jews that value religious freedom under the bus. that should keep those votes coming.

    ok back to ‘on subject’….who will obama apologize to , today?

    • Joe H

      Bruce,
      not only THAT, after failing MISERABLY, he has sworn to continue to fund solar and wind power with tax payers money!!! What’s he lost NOW?? About seven billion??? HE DOESN’T LEARN FROM HIS MISTAKES!!!

  • Doc Sarvis

    • http://naver samurai

      Are you on drugs or something? How is apologizing the right thing to do? Have they apologized for shooting our soldiers because some infidel book got burned? No. Should we apologize because of a simple mistake? No. Should we find out who shot our soldiers, bring him before a judge, and be tried for his crimes? Yes. Why do you always take the wrong side? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        Yes, good point, samurai. Unfortunately, that will probably not happen.

        It is just common courtesy to apologize and rude not to, but then I doubt you are capable understanding that as you quite good at being rude and seem to thrive on it.

        karolyn,
        Two wrongs don’t make a right??? Then why is Odumberer going to continue to fund solar when it has been proven BIG TIME he was wrong???

      • eddie47d

        Stop being so ignorant Joe for solar works and has worked long before modern solar panels. Someday Americans will wake up and stop smelling the coal dust. Some think that is just like smelling a good cup of coffee. Why not accept a better way and wean ourselves off of coal(mercury) poisoning.

        • Winston Smith

          “wean ourselves off of coal” you say? So, the answer is to shut down coal or gas fired generation stations, stop drilling for oil and build no more nuclear plants and so on, eh? Sounds more like violent “cold turkey” to me! Now, how are the scientists, technicians and other lab and factory personnel supposed to afford to get to work to perfect and produce these wonderful energy sources – and what will they use to power and illuminate the labs and factories? And what do the rest of us do without affordable energy for the next many years! THERE IS NO CURRENT TECHNOLOGY THAT WILL EVEN BEGIN TO SUPPLANT OUR PRESENT ENERGY NEEDS WITHIN A REASONABLE TIME!

      • Joe H

        Yes eddie,
        passive works to a degree. But active solar as in panels will not help create jobs here in the US as China owns about 90% of the rare earth to manufacture them. That is one of the reasons sloyndra went out of business!!! now wind power would work very good in DC!! With all that hot air blowing around the capital, theres alway wind!!!

      What a stud muffin utopian you are. Don’t forget. I need that phone number, eMail address and the specific name of that government office where you get that WONDERFUL utopian drug. I need it NOW. Be fair – it’s fun to share.

  • FreedomFighter

    Obama is disgusting to send that letter, its disgusting and its rediculous. For almost 900 years Islam has been burning bibles, killing christians.

    Who is making apoligies for this?

    In every single muslim country:

    bibles are burned,
    material from any other religion burned,
    churches burned

    CHIRSTIANS MURDERED EVERY DAY

    gays hung
    women beheaded and female children mutilated and beaten

    Who in Islam said “Im sorry”?

    NOT A SINGLE ISLAMIC CLERIC HAS MADE AN OFFER OF CONDOLANCE, REPENTANCE OR CONDEMED THE ABOVE ACTIONS.

    I find our president making a rediculous appologie to mass murdering fanatic monsters that murder, mutilate, beat and imprison christians daily for burning those stinking POS books?

    I say if those books are the cause of whats happening

    BURN THEM ALL NOW!

      • Joe H

        Doc,

        Doc Sarvis probably thinks that Afganies have been oppressed by our actions there. And that any Afgani response is therefore justied. This community organizer mindset line of thinking leads to providing these abused people with stuff like food stamps, free cell phones and free internet.

        Doc gets it and Joe is clueless. Why are we over there killing people in their homes would be more rational. Too many of you think these foreign countries are our military playground and turning them into glass is a civilized response. When we shouldn’t be there in the first place.

      • Joe H

        eddie,
        In case you CAN read and COMPREHEND, I will repeat two things I have said here many times. First, I think we should follow R. Pauls advice and pull our troops back to our boundaries. That way WE are strong and safe. but if we are going to be fighting there, FIGHT TO KCK THEIR AZZ! worry about the safety of OUR troops, the hell with playing games with them. Second Those BOOKS had been written in on almost EVERY page with extremist messages which even the CLERICS say is BLASPHEMY and one of the approved methods of destruction of said blasphemed material is BURNING!! Do you get it now, DW???

      • eddie47d

        Then WE should have turned them over to their Cleric for proper disposal. Now do you get it?

    • Karolyn

      I knew somebody would say that today. We are better than them (or should be). Why should our behavior be dictated by the bad behavior of others? Would you have us burning crosses in Muslim front yards? How about burning mosques?

How about them bombing innocent people on buses, at malls, etc., and call themselves freedom fighters or sons of the prophet? How about when they hijack ships or blow up airplanes with passengers on board? Need to see the bigger picture Karolyn. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Patriot1776

        If you do a little research and put forth some effort, the books were being used by prisoners to pass message. They weren’t sacred books used for studying religion, they were tablets used by the muslim prisoners, most likely plotting against America. The “act” of burning the books protects the Americans guarding these terrorists. It wasn’t an act of defiance against muslims or their beliefs. It isn’t like when they burn Bibles. We are above them. Our President just doesn’t have the fortitude to stand up and walk like the leader of the greatest nation in the world.

      • http://naver samurai

        If this is true Patriot 1776, then all I can say is “Burn Baby Burn!” FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      • Michael J.

        Karolyn,
        No one has suggested (yet) that crosses should be burned, except you.

      • Rick

        To FF I have been to 4 muslim countries and had no problems. In Morocco, Turnisa, Eygpt and Turkey, most of the people wear western style clothing and there were NO women wearing burkas. Islam does not call for women to wear burkas. It is the culture of that nation and its male domination.

        The people that I met treated the Bible with more repect than most Americans. For example, in order to pick up the Bible, ones hands MUST be cleanse, therefore one MUST wash their hands. The Bible is stored in a clean area.

        There is a proper way to dispose of the Quans just like disposing of tattered American flags. It is done with honor and not dump into some trash can or burn in a trash fire.

        How many Muslim countries have you been in? I guess none and the Fox Koolaid must be pretty tasty.

        Since you invoke God in your emails, tell me what does Exodus chapter 20, versus 16 state?

        Maybe GOD should have another look at you.

        Rick: great for you now explain that to the many thousands of dead christians elsewhere

        1.Demand that Muslims stop killing Christians
        2.Tell them what they are doing is wrong
        3.Tell them the entire world is watching
        4.Take action to backup the demand.

        “Muslims, Stop Killing Christians” is a message that needs to be sent loud and clear worldwide.

          I’ve been following the story of Pastor Youcef in Iran whom converted to Christianity from Islam, the ultimate “infadel”. I do not know if he’s been murdered for his “crime”. There is no leaniancy in radical Islam. In the US a woman was stoned to death for being raped and so no longer a virgin. A daughter was killed in an “honor killing” for wishing to marry outside the faith. With this backward logic, how can we co-exist? We can’t! This type of thinking is so pervasive within the Muslim community and yet the MSM and liberal politicians preach peace ever knowing there can be none, they even gloss over the bad reports of honor killings.

      • Joe H

        Doc M,
        He probably WILL be as in most muslim countries, even though it isn’t always carried out, it is a crime to be a Christian, punishable by DEATH!

      Obama did the right thing in denouncing the trashing of the Koran. Not sure why Americans get a kick out of book burnings or destroying other religions artifacts. We are a better nation and we should be setting the example in how the world respects us . Apparently we thought this was another good way to make friends and influence people. You know acting out before we think. Why weren’t those books donated to the local populace instead of being destroyed? Why weren’t they secretly burned instead of dumped in the open? Why do we do things that we would never want the “enemy” to do to us? We get upset every time a Muslim sneezes but they are supposed to sit there and take the abuse of their faith. We got our pound of flesh after 9/11 so I think it’s time we act like the civilized nation we claim to be. That is why an apology was in order.

        When I was in Iraq in 2003, we were told that if our unit chaplain came into a city we were deployed to, they would kill him for spreading the word of an infidel religion. I volunteered my platoon to guard him. Needless to say, when they saw the Dragon Slayers, all 41 of us, guarding him, they made no attempt at his life. Anytime after that, if he needed to be guarded or watched out for, he called on my platoon. Our unit chaplain at that time was a major (0-4). I here he is a full colonel now. How is that for our actions and theirs Ed? I know I purposely put my platoon into harms way, but that’s all part of the job. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        Samurai,
        Thank You for serving our country.

        It has been disheartening to me, and I’m sure many others to learn over the last few years that a lot of the things we were taught over the last 150 years were lies and that things we fought for were not real. Inspite of all that, I now know that the quest for living in a free republic was and is genuine. And that Life, Liberty and the Persuit of Happiness is real, even if it only exists in the hearts of those who fought for it. God has bestowed upon us unalienable rights, and our hearts have bestowed upon us a belief in God. The two being inseperable and indominable are the strength which will return to us that which we have lost

      • Michael J.

        eddie47d,
        How very caring and compassionate of you. But nowhere in your comment did you even mention the resulting death of two U.S. soldiers. Chances are that the grieving families of these two soldiers might find your words a bit insensitive.

      • eddie47d

        Why would they have had to burn any Bibles Freedom Fighter. If they were not welcome then pack them up and ship them out of the country. You deal in anger not solutions.

      • eddie47d

        Some in the world consider the Christian faith a cult Samurai. So accusing Muslims of being a cult solves nothing and is just another justification (excuse) for more wars.

          IF, as you say, “Americans get a kick out of book burnings” why did an American Clergyman get holy heck in the media and in blogs like this for burning a Koran in America?

    • Winston Smith

      @ eddie47d Umm, FIRST you rail against “Those who start wars …” THEN you say “Don’t be so naive about who starts wars” as if it doesn’t matter because “Excuses are a dime a dozen”. Does it matter who starts a war or NOT?

      • eddie47d

        It definitely makes a difference who starts a war and we have greased the wheels on numerous occassions in the Middle East. Reagan sold arms to Iraq so they could attack Iran. We overthrew the Iran government in 1953. We invaded Iraq under false pretenses. We’ve supported the Saudi government while they continually suppress their citizens.We supported Egypt while Mubarak tortured his citizens.We don’t demand financial accountability from the Karzai government with our money so their citizens still languish in poverty.We give 4 billion to Israel and Egypt every year and all they do is buy military weapons to attack each other and suppress their people. Plus we sell military hardware to every dictator in that region and then sit back and wonder why there are so many wars in that region. We don’t sell democracy we sell wars or haven’t you figured that out yet.

        eddie,

    The Saudi Dictator paid Saudis to fly FALSE FLAG jets into the Twin Towers to get Americans to overthrow Afghanistan and Iraq and hand them to the Saudi Dictator under “Saudi written Sharia Law”. This is called a FALSE FLAG to cause WAR and RIOTS.

    Saudi Puppet Obama left “Saudi written Sharia Law” in the constitutions of both Iraq and Afghanistan. “Saudi written Sharia Law” in the constitution of any country converts the country from being a DEMOCRACY INTO BEING A SAUDI DICTATORSHIP.

    The Taliban now want to overthrow the Saudi Dictatorship in Afghanistan and take back their country. RIOTS IN THE STREETS ARE TO OVERTHROW THE NEW SAUDI DICTATOR. This is replacing one Saudi Dictator with an Iranian Dictator. Both Dictators are Hitler-Like, Genocidal, cruel Dictatorships that thrive on Human Rights Violations to suppress any Democracy in their populations.

    Saudi Puppet Obama is Groveling before the Taliban, and apologizing to the Taliban, to keep them from overthrowing the new Saudi Dictatorship in Afghanistan. Saudi Puppet Obama knows RIOTS are to overthrow Governments. Protests are to change Governments.

    Afghanistan will never be a DEMOCRACY and the citizens will never be FREE until the citizens demand that “Saudi written Sharia Law” is removed from their constitution.

    Saudi Puppet Obama is depending on RIOTS, from the Saudi Paid Occupy Movement in America, so he recognizes the power of RIOTS.

    OCCUPY RIOTS => OBAMA MARTIAL LAW DICTATORSHIP => SUSPEND THE CONSTITUTION AND CONGRESS

      This is my second response posted to you and the first was two hours ago. I’ll now give you a shortened version and see if it remains. If Obama is a puppet to the Saudi government then what did you call Ronald Reagan who received a few million from the Saudis to fight covert wars in Angola and Nicaragua?

          No true patriot can support Ron Paul. That one critical element of the Constitution that he eschews is the government’s responsibility for national defense. He would decimate the military, and make America one of the weakest nations on earth. He would allow our enemies free rein to run roughshod about the world. While Obama seeks to destroy our children’s future through active measures Paul would accomplish the same outcome through inaction.
          Incidentally, I have had occasion to swear to uphold the Constitution – unlike politicians, I meant it, and put myself on the line for it.

      • http://boblivingstonpl.wordpress.com Bob Livingston

        Dear 2WarAbnVet,

        You write: “he eschews is the government’s responsibility for national defense. He would decimate the military, and make America one of the weakest nations on earth.” You, sir, are a victim of the MSM propaganda machine. I venture to guess you have not listened to Dr. Paul speak of the importance of national defense and the difference between defense spending and military spending. I urge you to go to http://www.ronpaul2012.com/the-issues/national-defense/ to gain an understanding of Dr. Paul’s stance on defense.

        If what you say is true, please explain for me why Ron Paul has more support from current and former members of the military than all others combined. Ron Paul is the only candidate who is a veteran. He is the only politician in years who has upheld his oath to the Constitution and follows it.

        I urge you to read my column on Monday: On Iran, Government And Doublespeak. Perhaps that will open your eyes.

        Many true patriots, myself included, will be voting for Ron Paul.

        Best wishes,

    This whole country is falling apart when we let a person who is not constitutionally qualified to be president stay in office. We now have millions of people voting who are also not natural born citizens and who have allegiance to foreign countries and send their money abroad to countries all over the world. The constitution requires that the president be a natural born person of two citizens of the US. This is to avoid the possibility for foreign influence. Pretty quick if the current trend continues natural born Americans will no longer be able to control our future.

    But then again , perhaps Barry just like apologizing for anything and everything . What angers me is that he should think this is so religiously sensitive that he feels the need for an apology and yet he ignores the shooting of two of our soldiers helping defend that armpit of the world by Afgan Military . And with the koran being used as a form of messanger service among prisoners , there is absolutely no need for apologies to anyone .

The inside job was already in effect when the middle-class began losing jobs to overseas markets. What about the housing bubble? I guess President Obama is responsible.

        Sorry but the hell you talk about was there when he came in to office, he did not create it and there is nothing wrong with putting the blame on the person and persons responsible for its cause, becoming president does not make him responsible for what those who came before him did. Obama’s job is to clean up the Bush Administration’s mess they left, this will take probably ten years to complete and you are so naive to think it can be done in three years. Thinks have greatly improved in three years but we are only almost 1/3 the way back to where we have to be. Conservatives often refer to him as the “Messiah” and thus expect miracles from him and when as a human he cannot do that you call him a failure, most however see he is heading in the right direction and that most of the trip lies ahead of us and if we turn back as all the GOP candidates want to do we will not get where we need to be nearly as soon. An independent non partisan examination of Obama’s budget compared to the GOP budget plans of the candidates running for president places his budget making the deficit smaller than Gingrich’s, Romney’s and Santorum’s creating a greater deficit than Obama’s budget, only Ron Paul’s budget was smaller that Obama’s. This was in the news today. Facts if choose to believe facts show he has the better solutions economically.

        They passed his legistlation in the DFL congress and he put it in effect before Obama took office, Its to bad it took him over 6 years to finally do the right thing and when he did the Democratic Congress passed his legislation. There was simplly no obstuction for him. obstruction became the name of the game after the GOP took over the house in 2011

      It is current political fable is that the economic downturn is due to Bush’s failure to regulate of the housing and financial markets. It was precisely the government regulators, under pressure from politicians, who forced banks and other lending institutions to lower their standards for making mortgage loans. (google – Community reinvestment Act)
      These risky loans, and the defaults that followed, were what set off a chain reaction of massive financial losses that brought down the whole economy.
      Was this due to George W. Bush and the Republicans? Actually most of those who pushed the lowering of mortgage lending standards were Democrats– notably Congressman Barney Frank and Senator Christopher Dodd, though, admittedly, too many Republicans went along.

    For those who don’t truly understand the danger of radical Islam should read WHY WE LEFT ISLAM. Stories from Muslims who dared to leave even at the threat of death. In AUDACITY of HOPE Obama stated then following: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Those who have read DREAMS FROM MY FATHER and THE ROOTS of OBAMA’S RAGE understand why he is determined to bring America down both by weaking the economy, increasing the national debt and weaking the military industrial complex.

    Ronald Reagan would’nt appologize to these extremist muslims, he would insist that that Afghanistan soldier be punished for killing the two American soldiers, he would make sure that american soldiers never run out of ammunition, and that they would have the right to shoot the dirty dog who shot those couragious men on the spot.

    I don’t ever remember hearing an apology from any of the muslim extremist’s for setting fire to american soldier’s and dragging them behind their toyota pick-up’s or burning our flag’s during demonstation’s for hating ALL american’s or infidel’s. The president of the United State’s of America should never appoligize or bow to anyone.

    An apology?!? For What!?! Have they ever apologized for burning our Bibles or our Flag? This idiot is doing nothing but being a butt-kisser to the enemy. “Accidently” burning the Quran? Really? What about demanding an apology for them killing two of our military men? They had no right to do that yet Obummer is butt-kissing and making apologies. Give me a freakin’ break! We don’t have a president; we have a spineless person taking up space in the White House. I am sooo looking forward to November when we can vote his sorry no good but out of office!

  • JustAnotherJoe10

    You are correct, Karen. The Muslims do not apologize for anything because, well, they think they are right. If this were Christian bibles being burned, Obama would be there to light the match. But somehow, anyone and everyone except Muslims are allowed to be criticized, demonized, and it is all okay until the tables are turned. Unfortunately, Karen, I would not rule out the idiocy of the American people to re-elect Obama-or someone no better than him-in Novembre. There are nearly half of Americans who are at the public trough, sucking the life out of those of us who are still paying taxes. Somehow, I think that will be more important to them than the Obama killing liberties and freedoms.

    Of course, this jerk mocked BIBLE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hi-V_ilJu0w&list=PLAC4401F3E3C6A93B&index=2&feature=plpp_video
    But he apologized for the “hooooooly” Koran. In his Cairo speech he said: As the Holy Quran tells us; The Holy Quran teaches; the Holy Quran also says; The Holy Quran tells us: “O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.”
    Yep, apologizing for his “hoooooooly” koran he expressed his “deep regret”, but he was pretty much quiet when muslim brother hood murdered 24 Egyptian Christian. He bit his hypocritical demonic tongue.
    This corrupt and amoral one will “holding accountable those responsible”?! When he will hold himself and holder accountable and responsible for all their lies and crimes against this great country and her people?!
    Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil (Proverbs 12:20)
    “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment. A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calls for blows. A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul.” (Proverbs 18)

    Muslim Admits to Attacking Atheist; Muslim Judge Dismisses Case

    The Pennsylvania State Director of American Atheists, Inc., Mr. Ernest Perce V., was assaulted by a Muslim while participating in a Halloween parade. Along with a Zombie Pope, Ernest was costumed as Zombie Muhammad. The assault was caught on video, the Muslim man admitted to his crime and charges were filed in what should have been an open-and-shut case. That’s not what happened, though.

    The defendant is an immigrant and claims he did not know his actions were illegal, or that it was legal in this country to represent Muhammad in any form. To add insult to injury, he also testified that his 9 year old son was present, and the man said he felt he needed to show his young son that he was willing to fight for his Prophet.

    My beloved country is bleeding and her sons are being killed for naught. Our duty was to eliminate Osama bin Laden and his organization,increase our inteligence factor and return home. We have no business in nation building,interferring in strife between and among these ignorant ,theocratic societies and mind our own business and allow them to do as they have done forever. They are backward peoples with no understanding of justice,science or modernity. I beelieve thy will keep each other engaged in fighting their ancient religious wars and hatreds. Allow them to live in their own sordid society,but do not allow any of them to emmigrate to the USA. We do not want their twisted ideas invading our country. Isolate them ! The blood of one American boy or girl is tto high a price to pay while trying to help them toward the 21stcentury. It is wrong to send our troops to their death for these ungrateful,uneducated ,bloodthirsty dinasours. As for the current Unleader –the bowing Obamba–he is surely destroying our country,and devilishly adhering and practicing the Cloward-Pivin principle of Marxism by willfully creating chaos int the country and tearing down our culture,bankrupting the nation and causing discord among the peoples in both parties,weakening our defensive posture and ability.I think of him as “The Great Pretender”.

    We should not be in Afghanistan in the first place.If we had someone in charge like Obama on 911, it never would have happened in the first place.He does use the intelligence he receives.If it did happen he would have used the Seal Team 6 strategy and not the Bush tragedy and we would have saved thousands of lives and our national treasure.I do like his tactics though(Obama) and that is to talk nice to the enemy, but if you get out of line you may get one between the eyes.Not like the last guy calling people the axis of evil and proclaiming other childish playground antics ,such as if your not with us you must be against us.He was a lot of talk and stupid actions.

    Apology, my backside. They should apologize to us for their deceit. They should get on their hands and knees and thank every soldier who has tried to provide them freedom.

    Obama should stand up for all Americans. For decades we have fought for the freedom of all peoples, spilling our blood for people like those who Karazai represents. We have asked for nothing in return. Obama has to go.
