The Obama administration is postponing an award for an Egyptian activist who was subjected to a "virginity test" after protesting in Cairo´s Tahrir Square. The State Department had said Samira Ibrahim would be among recipients of an International Women of Courage award presented by Secretary of State John Kerry and first lady Michelle Obama on Friday. Now the State Department says she won´t be honored Friday because of anti-American and anti-Semitic comments on her Twitter account. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday officials will first study the tweets, which include support for attacks against U.S. diplomatic

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I’d be surprised if they don’t give it to her anyway, maybe give her some tanks and F-16’s too
Oh, she’ll get the award. The moment Obamatron comes back from his Israel tour.
Barack, Biden, Kerry, Michelle, Hagel, Brennan, Holder.. WTF has happened to my country? All of these people are Communist/Marxist/Fascist RADICALS of the highest order. We are in for a rough four years, if we make it that far. I wonder if not making it that far would be better than making it that far???
"Women of courage" are notoriously silent and invisible in this country. Everybody has at least one on the block where they live.
I nominate her for the “Helen Thomas I Hate the Jews” Award.
It would be the White House’s way of saying to this woman, “Way to go”.
Candidates for the tweet study are expected to be vetted by June, and the commission will begin work by October.
Ain’t the information network a bitch?
Another example of the Admin’s attention to detail.
No wonder we’re in such deep sh///
To go back a decade or more, this is a Bonfire of the Vanities.
The nobamatrons are just incredibly stupid. This woman is an anti-semite. That she is is NOT a secret. Research her just a little, just a tiny bit and it’s plain she should never have even been brought up for this award. Just go look at this: http://www.bing.com/search?q=Samira+Ibrahim&form=MOZSBR&pc=MOZI That’s all it takes.
Ms. Neuland looks like she was using a Sharpie for eyebrow liner here. Very uneven from one side to the other, unless she is literally going for the “color me skeptical” look.
What a disgusting pig.
Obviously not enough. :)
Funny how the regular folks were able to develop intel on a terrorist standing right in the middle of them about to get a nice big award fom the federal government especially when the Feds have thousands of FBI agents that work in the counter-intelligence division and not one spotted this beforehand? And we want to trust the Feds with our safety and security with guys like Holder and soon-to-be Brennan, a Muslim?! Toss the Muslim Brotherhood and all it’s benefactors out of the country along with ineligible Kenyan...
Neuland has to be the least qualified employee at the State Dept., and considering John F-ing Kerry is now heading Foggy Bottom, that’s saying a lot. She never provides information and could at least get her eye brows to match if she must be on television to say nothing.
Postponing is not good enough.
Wait, I thought anti-semitism was GOOD now.
They keep changing the rules!
