SECOND OF TWO FRIDAY

The U-tube clip of the disgraceful outrageous movie which Preacher Jones (the Koran burner) was going to use in his church illustrates why Muslims have reacted violently. However there is no excuse for any mob to use the work of one or few individuals as an excuse to attack Americans and this country.

On the other hand, it is a disgrace if as Romney claims our government apologized for something the government did not do and could not have prevented without violation of the 1st Amendment.

According to CNN Romney’s Campaign released this statement by Romney: "It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."

However, in an interview for the CBS program “60 Minutes,” recorded yesterday, Obama said Romney “didn’t have his facts right” in claiming the administration apologized to protesters. Romney has “a tendency to shoot first and aim later

Obama is quoted today at a rally in Golden, Colorado:, “We are going to bring those who killed our fellow Americans to justice,”

This is the statement released by the American Embassy in Cario: September 11, 2012 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.

I don’t believe that that is an apology.

The situation in Libya is different. This was so well organized including assault weapons and grenades; that it could not have been spontaneous. This incident has all the earmarks of a terrorist action which significantly occurred on 9/11.

Could it be possible that this government like the Bush administration missed or disregarded warning signs? We probably will never know because we have a scapegoat for blame.
