WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House said Tuesday that a Florida church's threat to burn copies of the Muslim holy book could endanger U.S. troops abroad, while the State Department denounced the plan as "un-American" and said it would put American diplomats and travelers at risk.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs noted the U.S. commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David Petraeus, has warned that images of a burning Quran would be used by extremists to incite violence.

Suddenly the liberals are worried about endangering the troops!
Going to War with the enemy endangers our troops.
Having Obama in charge of our troops endangers our troops.
The White House is now weighing in on this koran burning?
They’re against it?
Well then. My mind’s made up. I’ll bring some extra gasoline.
But our own troops burning Bibles was okay?
And hence the origin of the term “Koranimal”.
Yes, Hussein, standing against Islam can indeed be dangerous. Who should know that better than YOURSELF??!!
Burning Qurans might make Terrorists more prone to violence?
Here is a thread of when the American military was burning bibles in Afghanistan last year.
How long until it becomes “posting anti-muslim material on public websites, such as Free Republic, will endanger troops”?
Give them an inch, and next time they will take a mile.
And yet the white house can support the burning of Bibles??
Here is another set of facts and opinion on a similar situation:
I thought limited ROE was endangering the troops.
I have to admit actually burning it would be rather extreme.
What I find interesting are all the responses. How can our guys be in any more danger considering the “Rules of Engagement”.
This may bring them out in the open. Oh that wouldn’t help they have to shoot at us first.
As if they are not doing everything in their power to brutally kill our troops anyway...!
I don’t fall for this fake act to “respect” a Satanic text when they (the government) constantly urinate on the Christians and Bible.
I do think it is an unChristian act, BUT I do not consider that church Christian anyway. They have a right to do what they do and it will not make that irrational group any more rabid than they already are. Such Bull cr*p.
This government respect for islam is REALLY troubling.
“the State Department denounced the plan as “un-American”.
THIS is VERY DANGEROUS.
The U.S. Government is, through its administrative bureaucracy, representing a President whose qualifications for office are questionable, and whose overt actions have manifestly demonstrated his accomodation towards an enemy of America and of western civilization, is seeking to restrict the free expression of political and religious opinion regarding that enemy by American citizens on American soil.
Obama and his henchwoman Hillary Clinton are once again demonstrating their contempt for the Consitution and hostility towards America and Americans.
Obama and Hillary’s statements with regards to potential reaction by the fanatical enemy we are facing overseas and here in America, are, IN THEMSELVES, an invitation to these fanatics to react in the fashion those two enemies of their own people are stating.
Obama needs to be impeached.
Every time the camel sticks it’s nose under the tent, poke it with a sharp stick.
