Clinton demands Arab Spring nations protect embassies, halt violence
CNN ^ | updated 9:33 PM EDT, Fri September 14, 2012 | Joe Sterling and Greg Botelho,

Posted on 09/14/2012 7:13:52 PM PDT by Hunton Peck

As anti-American furor raged in the home of the Arab Spring, the top U.S. diplomat on Friday sternly warned countries where the unrest has been most pronounced: Stop the violence and seek justice against those attacking diplomatic missions, or else the United States will.

***

Many have fumed over what Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described Friday as an "awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with" -- an inflammatory anti-Islam film posted online this summer, and publicized in recent days.

The 14-minute film trailer, which was privately produced in the United States led by a man federal officials identified as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, mocks the Prophet Mohammed as a womanizer, child molester and ruthless killer.

Protesters, notably, haven't all been violent and they represent a fraction of their respective nations' populations: In Egypt, for example, a few thousand have clashed with security forces outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo, in a nation of more than 80 million people.

Still, confrontations that have occurred have aggravated relations between the U.S. and other nations, and led to a number of deaths...

Clinton said such assaults are misguided, and fly in the face of the better society many in these countries recently fought for when they overthrew authoritarian rulers.

***

Despite the firm condemnation by U.S. government officials, some in the Muslim world -- especially those raised in regimes in which the government must authorize any film production -- cannot accept that a movie like "Innocence of Muslims" can be produced without being sanctioned by Washington, said Council of Foreign Relations scholar Ed Husain.

"They're projecting ... their experience, their understanding (that) somehow the U.S. government is responsible for the actions of a right-wing fellow," said Husain, a senior fellow at the New York think thank.

...fool me a thousandth time, shame on . . . uhh . . . some guy who made a YouTube video.

Hillary takes time off from being confounded and confused to be stern, confounded and confused.

If the situation weren't so dire, the painfully obvious and pathetic efforts to spin the stories would be funny.

IMHO, Mrs. Slick Willie is the primary cause of this bull**** going on in the Middle East. “Arab Spring” my ass.

Clinton demands pleads weakly, et cetera. This is the woman that Morsi refused to shake hands with, most likely because she's a woman first and of the Great Satan second . . .

Obama and Clinton are beyond clueless. They actually believe someone in the Arab world gives a damn what they think.

And her threats are about as intimidating as being threatened rape by a eunuch. Which is about what Zero and the Arkansas Broadbeam are.

Yes, they are tying it to the right wing - including Pamela Geller. Not that she was involved - but someone that she associates with is- the anti-mosque guy Joseph Nasralla Abdelmasih

Well, since Muhammad (piss be upon him) WAS indisputably a womanizer, child molester and ruthless killer, how is that "mocking" him?

also, there is a gay porn guy in the movie.

It made me think of the porn movie staring a fake Suharto that the CIA tried to use to unseat Suharto.

Someone is trying to destabilize the Middle East AND the USA.

One thing good about what obama's State Dept Whore said....it probably stopped an hour or so of rioting...the camel bangers were probably rolling on the ground laughing too hard to riot.

On another thought, I can just imagine how much help the FAST Marines are going to be when they get to the embassy's. I can just hear the politically correct general speaking to them before lift-off.

"Men, you're going into harms way and both your Commander-in-Chief, whose in the Las Vegas War Room tonight, directing this battle, and, myself wish you the best. REMEMBER, nobody is tougher than U.S. Marines. And, also REMEMBER, on the president's orders, I've put a little red propeller on top of every tenth Marine's helmet. The helmet is painted a nice shade of pink. Look around, so you'll know who he is. If our muslim friends start to overrun your position, just go find the propeller Marine. HE WILL BE THE ONE WITH THE BULLET. Let's do this for Hillary. Hoo Rah....Semper Fi."

Since CNN finds it necessary to paraphrase what they claim she said instead of actually quoting whatever she said, it may not really be much of anything but more ineffectual whining.

There are reports that the people who acted in this movie had no control over editing down the road; that the person who ultimately produced it overwrote dialogue so it would be inflammatory. We do not need this kind of stuff, but there it is. At my age I’ve seen just about everything.

YUUP!. I’m sure the Moslems are listening to every word Hillary says.

And I’m sure that they are thinking of how she would look in a Burqa, as a slavegirl in a Harem(now that is a desparate image), or buried in sand up to her neck as the Taliban does to women in Afghanistan.

Yes, Hillary. Everyone is listening to you but you aren’t saying anything worth a damn.

Here’s the deal and for the life of me, I don’t know why no one has even mentioned this. These are MUSLIM COUNTRIES who think women should be silent, yet Bush and obama have BOTH appointed women as SOS and sent them to negotiate with muslim men who think they should be in burqas and worse. They are insulted by having to deal with a hillary or a condi and it shows. They smile, and when the door closes behind these ‘powerful women’, they laugh their butts off.

It’s the unvarnished truth if anyone would just remember back to when Rice was given an ‘audience’ with the ruler of sudan and her enterage, andrea mitchell in particular, had the doors shut in their faces. When Condi protested, she was told right to her face that this was HIS country and she should shut the hell up. He dismissed her with the back of his hand and later she had a footstomping hissy fit.
The idea that hillary clinton could ‘demand’ anything from anyone in any of these countries is laughable if it wasn’t so frightening.

I notice this isn't in quotes. Maybe CNN is trying to give the administration some hints on leadership from a copy of "Leadership for Dummies."

How about this? The American people demand that the United States government protect it’s own embassies around the world.

Why the heck are we even in a position of begging other countries to protect our embassies? The countries should be told that they should keep their people away from our embassies for their people’s “own protection”.

I think that was intentional ...I don’t think Condi really wanted Andrea Mitchell there since Andrea Mitchell was one of those in on the “Plame name leak case” effort to destroy Cheney that misfired and got Scooter Libby instead.

Yes. Andrea was in on the Plame case, she "knew" Valerie was "covert" and claimed it was widely known but said later she was mistaken.

Andrea Mitchell was also involved in the documents scam in Joe Wilson yellowcake uranium case.

Andrea Mitchell was also involved in Dan Rather's National Guard forgeries. No one was sorry to see her get locked out of any place, in fact, it would have been convenient.

And she may find herself getting blocked outof things in the future as she's the talking head the libs used to put out the Bain capital scare- she faked a tape of Romney to completely change the meaning. John Sununu called her on it and laughed her down.

Not disagreeing with you on any of that. What I was disagreeing about is that it wasn’t simply mitchell who was involved in the sudan thing. It WAS mitchell condi made the biggest fuss over though.

Problem is, Hillary, your actions give lie to your statement, which facts show to be:

[Please ] Stop the violence and seek justice against those attacking diplomatic missions, *because* the United States *won't*.

No statement is necessary, actions are.

“Hillary takes time off from being confounded and confused to be stern, confounded and confused.”.....

She’s asking and expecting someone else to protect our marines but gives them no ammunition to protect themselves? Yup, she is indeed “confounded and confused”.

I have the feeling Obummer is about to throw this fat ass under the bus too. He’d do anything to save his skin.

And they will continue to blame films/cartoons/phrases for other's violence as a means to build a case against Free Speech. They care not about the terrorists killing our folks - they see an opportunity to further their real cause; the bit by bit abolishment of the documents that made this Nation great.
