President Asshat apparently never gets tired of apologizing to foreigners, especially when there’s nothing to apologize for.
President Barack Obama apologized to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Qurans by NATO troops, calling the act an inadvertent error, Karzai’s office and National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor said Thursday.
“We will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, including holding accountable those responsible,” Obama said in the letter.
Holding them accountable for what? All they did was destroy copies of the Quran that had already been defaced by the enemy.
Muslim holy books that were burned in a pile of garbage at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan had been removed from a library at a nearby detention center because they contained extremist messages or inscriptions, a western military official said Tuesday.
The military official with knowledge of the incident said it appeared that the Qurans and other Islamic readings were being used to fuel extremism, and that detainees at Parwan Detention Facility were writing on the documents to exchange extremist messages.
Predictably, adherants of the “religion of peace” have decided to go on a murderous rampage over this non-event despite the Obama regime’s wretched kowtowing.
At least six people have been killed and dozens injured in Afghanistan after protests spread over the burning of copies of the Quran at a US airbase.
One person was killed in Kabul, one in the eastern city of Jalalabad and at least four in Parwan province.
Protesters in Kabul shouted, “Death to America!” and threw stones at Camp Phoenix, the main US base in the city.
Riot police used water cannon to disperse protesters, some of whom were blocking the road leading to Jalalabad, one of the main trade routes into the capital.
Perhaps some day our fearless leader will actually grow a pair of balls and stop kissing the asses of America’s enemies at every turn, but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for that to happen.
