STERLING, Va. (AP) - A senior Pentagon official is apologizing to Washington-area Muslims for the burning of Qurans at a military base in Afghanistan.
Peter Lavoy, acting assistant secretary of defense for Asia and Pacific security affairs, says the military is investigating and that all troops are being retrained in the handling of religious materials.
Lavoy's remarks were Friday at a mosque in suburban Washington, D.C. They come after protests across Afghanistan over the burning of several Qurans at a U.S. military base. Military officials say 20 people have died in the protests, including two U.S. soldiers.

The wahabbi corridor again.
I remember the time when Americans of Japanese origin faced similar threats and were relocated to remote areas for their own safety. (Mostly, but some who were suspected of helping Imperial Japan, their version of Islamists, were held in camps.)
The Islamists living here express great concern for their safety.. well we can do no less to protect them than we did to protect the Americans of Japanese origin -- and the sooner the better.
Keep on demanding and keep on yanking the junk yard dogs' chains, Muhammed. That's real smart.
OK the article did say that "The mosque's imam called on Muslims to respond peacefully and with tolerance."
I will assume that the "reporter" left out his comments about the two servicemen.
There are Muslims -- and I worked with some for a few years, great people, and I lived in Ankara for about a year -- but there are also Islamists. If you check you will find that tens of millions of Muslims in Turkey DO NOT WANT Islamism (political Islam, sharia law).
So as this imam was speaking was there this song playing in the background? give a listen:

THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR POSTING THOSE, IT NEEDS TO BE POSTED ALL THE TIME.
Whomever keeps our enemies list please put that puke Lavoy in the top ten.
If he wants to grovel at islams feet, so be it, but...and I can't say more without risking banishment.
We keep apologizing, and no Christian or Jew is willing to fight back, then we lose and they win. Too bad there are no intrade lines on this. Might be illuminating.
OK, so the brass goes to mosque and apologizes shoeless
Now all they have to do is turn over the men who burned the defaced texts so they can be beheaded and mutilated by a screeching mob
then the muslims call it OK and hate us only 9 on a scale of 1-10
It is painfully obvious our Military is in the unfortunate position of fighting an enemy that the CIC refuses to treat as an enemy.
It is a testament to the honor of our men/women in the military that they do not en-mass walk off the battlefield.
Apologize? Might as well give them a knife and say, “Here cut off my head”...savages they are.
For the life of me, I’ve never seen such insane contortions given by the fools in authority for a death cult that calls itself a religion.
Perhaps the Pentagon could simply go back to harrassing and denigrating Christians to make themselves feel better.
Jackasses all of them.
Enough of the apologizing.
LOL! [but so true, unfortunately for America’s future]
Notwithstanding the atrocities committed against us - WHOEVER was in charge of getting rid of the Korans showed a TREMENDOUS lack of judgement.
I was in the military - the commanding officer should have a letter in his jacket preventing him from higher promotion. At THAT level, you MUST be aware of POLITICAL implications - and the commanding officer SHOULD have had the Korans DONATED to the Afghanis.
A LITTLE sensitivity buys A LOT of good will ...
Whenever the press uses the generic “a mosque” it inevitably means a mosque with connections to a known “terror charity.”
More proof that the Dept. of Defense leadership is compromised, emasculated, and Ass-Kissing cowards. esp. the Obama civilians.
I have more respect for the No. Vietnamese and VC POWS and defectors I talked with in Vietnam than for these pukes who are letting us lose in Afghanistan and making fools out of ourselves in our own country.
My father-in-law is probably weeping in private (WW2 - Iwo), and my son is not smiling (OIF).
WILL SOMEBODY STAND UP AND TAKE BACK OUR COUNTRY?
Keep this picture in mind, and work with all your might to make sure We the People win in November..ANYBODY except kiss-ass oboma.
