From the White House:

CARNEY: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.

Again, this is not in any way justifying violence, and we have spoken very clearly out against that and condemned it. And the president is making sure in his conversations with leaders around the region that they are committed as hosts to diplomatic facilities to protect both personnel and buildings and other facilities that are part of the U.S. representation in those countries.

Carney told reporters during the press briefing when asked if the attacks stemmed from “perceived American weakness” that stems from Obama’s leadership. “We’re very proud of the president’s record on foreign policy and are happy to make the case at the appropriate time.”

COOL THREAD: I salute you.

The Arabs are our friends.  That is what Obama and Carter wanted us to believe. 

Obama is a mixture of 3 presidents.  Nixon (underhanded campaign tactics and black ball people), Carter(foreign policy disaster and only consults his friends (aka czars) and not his cabinet), and GWB (domestic policy disaster and not intelligent). 

He could be the worst President ever.
