Obama And Clinton Broadcast Apology To Muslims On Pakistani TV-Fail To Appease Frenzied Islamic Mobs
September 21, 2012
"...In an attempt to tamp down the anger, the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad purchased spots on Pakistani TV on Thursday that featured denunciations of the video by President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. But their comments, which were subtitled in Urdu, the main Pakistani language, apparently did little to moderate the outrage that filled the country's streets..." http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5hxodOz3Y7R9SI34uzW5wQ6qAJsVQ?docId=fb7e65bfde0541dda8056da83a3876d0

Click here for 'apology'video:
The aim of the campaign is to convince the Muslim world that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton hate the Innocence of Muslims film as much as Muslims do. But good luck selling that one until Obama poses with a burning American flag and Hillary Clinton climbs over an embassy wall with a dagger between her teeth.
Obama's only real diplomacy mode is to apologize on behalf of America and mirror the responses of his Muslim audience. That's an annoying tactic when it's practiced by customer service representatives, but it's positively degrading for the leader of a great power to act like the customer service rep for AT&T. "Yes, I understand that you're upset by the Innocence of Muslims. Let me say that we are equally upset by this movie and we apologize for your poor experience trying to murder our people in Yemen and Tunisia."
The video is once again another demonstration of how American liberals just do not understand the Muslim world.
1. From the American diplomatic perspective the video explains everything. From the Muslim perspective, it fails to explain why the filmmaker isn't in jail and facing blasphemy charges. The ad fails because it also fails to explain free speech to Muslims. Instead of explaining American values, it apologizes for them and fails at that too.
2. Airing a loud denial of involvement with manufacturing the video looks like a cover-up to Muslims. Dedicating the bulk of the video to such a denial looks like an admission of guilt.
3. The video makes it look like Obama and Clinton are broadcasting an apology to Pakistan. Such a show of weakness will only lead to more terrorist attacks as the protesters, rather than being pacified, will go on demanding the death penalty for everyone involved with, "The Innocence of Muslims."
