In Cairo, as our embassy was being attacked, our flag removed and burned and the al Qaeda flag raised, this is the statement which was issued through the embassy:
“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,” it said. “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
8 hours later, the terrorist attack took place in Libya and 4 Americans were killed.
It was shortly after that, that Mitt Romney released the statement which immediately drew scorn from Obama, his administration and the liberal media. Here is that statement:
“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.”
About 2 hours AFTER Mitt Romney’s comments…The WHITE HOUSE released THEIR statement that, “the embassy statement did not reflect the government’s views.”
And what ELSE did they say about Romney regarding his comment???
“Romney shoots first and aims later.”
Oh Really. ROMNEY shoots first and aims later. ROMNEY…
