Allow me to repectfully but strongly disagree.
1. When you say, "Once again the peaceful religion of Islam raises it head!" you're equating: the mobs in the streets, the radical extremist mullahs who stir them up and the heavily armed gunmen (possibly al-qaeda) who took advantage of a demonstration in front of the Benghazi Embassy, with the religion of Islam. In your reply below to lte you talk of your distate for the Westboro Baptist Church. You obviously don't want them equated with Christianity. So why do you equate violent muslim extremists with the religion of Islam?
2. The article you link to is titled "Romney Gets IT Right" It's about his comments on a Cairo Embassy statement calling out the Obama Administration's response to the attacks on American Embassies "disgraceful". a)Romney calls the Embassy staff the "Obama Adminstration", they are way down on the totem pole and actually not part of his Administration, he gets that wrong. b)Romney said it's an apology. There is no apology in the statement. He got that wrong too. (see below) c)He says the statement was released in response to the mob attacking the Embassies. The statement was released 6 hours before a mob demontrated and stormed the Cairo Embassy wall. He also got that wrong. In fact, Romney got it all wrong! ...for an attempt in political gain.
Here's the statement in full, it's not long.
Please read, where is the apology?
“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
