Administration yesterday

“The United States Embassy 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”

A sane Romney two years ago

"Burning the Quran is wrong on every level. It puts troops in danger, and it violates a founding principle of our republic."

What changed? How does one go from sane to politically insane in a matter of two years? Desperation? It's no excuse.

btw, anyone who criticized Bush in 2006 for doing the same in that time of crisis was a cocksucker as well

I don't understand the rational of those people. Some dutch guy makes a movie slamming Islam, and they attack our embassy? Isnt there a dutch embassy in Egypt?

Sam Bacile, a 56-year-old California real estate developer, said he wrote, produced and directed the movie.

According to AP story on Huffington Post.

Nothing for us in the comfy confines of our living rooms. For those of us who did see the front lines this kind of crap is not only about "hurt feelings". Why give any deranged individual/s an excuse to hurt the troops they're constantly aroundf (or in this case the embassy people)

because they don't need an excuse. these people are f*cking insane... and if pointing out that they're insane triggers their insanity then perhaps we need to re-assess our relationships with these countries. I don't think pretending like they aren't insane is really the solution here.

I NEVER wanted to see the photo of the body of the ambassador, yet SOMEONE on this board felt it was necessary to post the photo rather than a link to the photo ... hugely inappropriate. I know it's "news" and reality, but please give people the chance to not view that.
