The White House has disavowed the apology to the Muslim protesters issued by its embassy in Egypt earlier today.

“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” an administration official told POLITICO.

In other words, the Obama State Department isn’t cowardly, it’s simply incompetent. What a relief!

    Since the Marines weren’t allowed to do their job and the diplomats don’t seem to understand theirs, I say we bring them all home. The Marines can have fun training in the swamps of North Carolina (and make it home for supper), and the diplomats can fill those much needed jobs as 7-11 night managers. Everybody wins.

  • I’m sure if Dear Leader goes back to Cairo and gives another speech, evreyone there will love us, peace will reign, and we’ll get the 2024 Olympics. Isn’t he due for another Nobel prize?
