As Mitt Romney’s been saying for months now, this President loves going around the world to apologize for America, because apparently it’s wrong to liberate distant oppressed countries with freedom bombs, rainbow bullets, democracy shrapnel, and war… umm war… whatever. And today Mitt Romney is finally correct! President Obama has apologized in a letter to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the big Koran garbage barbecue at Bagram the other day, which has led to terrible riots and death everywhere.
“I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident,” Mr. Obama said in a letter to President Hamid Karzai. “I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.”
The letter was handed to Mr. Karzai by the American ambassador to Afghanistan, Ryan C. Crocker, on Thursday afternoon in Kabul.Related video
The acting spokesman for the American Embassy in Kabul, Mark Thornburg, confirmed that the letter had been hand delivered by Mr. Crocker to Mr. Karzai.
“The error was inadvertent,” Mr. Obama said. “I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.”
Wow, an apology and an assurance that he’ll punish some American soldiers for this! Let’s see how the right wing of American politics is taking this news with a quick jaunt over to Free Republic.
- “The best thing we could do is pull out our troops, nuke the place back to the stone-age, declare victory and then tell every foreign country that Afghanistan is all theirs on a first come, first serve basis. “
- “Actions like this will spell the end of Obama if word gets out through all the Lame Stream Media. Obama just proved everyone’s point that he hates America bad enough to apologize to a bunch of radical Islamist.”
- “A 2000 lb cement brick should be dropped on the Kabala rock right now. With a warning that the next 2000 lb. item dropped on that spot will be live. But nobody with the authority to do so has the GUTS to do it.”
- “We should replace troops on the ground one for one with nukes set off above ground. But save some for Mecca and Medina and the rest of their viper nests.”
- “But then the media crawls all over Santorum for telling the truth: we are in the clutches of Satan and Obama is the facilitator…”
- “I wipe my a.ss with pages of the koran,will B.O apologize on my behalf.”
