In response to DirtyWaterLover's comment:
"Look at the statements that came out of the State Department. They are all about how disgraceful we are for hurting the feelings of muslims about their religion."
Most muslims live in a near totalitarian state. No movie is made without the backing of the Government. They have no concept of freedomn of speech. They have no concept of a movie being made that isn't supported by the government.
So when a movie comes out criticizing Islam, they have a hard time thinking that it was made by some nut bag and that it wasn't supported by the government.
Even though I don't think anyone apologized for this video, I have no problem with the State Department coming out and saying the Government had nothing to do with the movie. I for one don't want to be associated with the video.
The most sickening thing is the people who made it go into hiding. The director isn't even an American. The people who made the video should step up and tell the world that the video does not reflect the views of the Nation as a whole.
If you want to make movies or cartoons or whatever that satires Islam or is intended to inflame the passions of large numbers of people that put Americans in danger, then at least put a disclaimer on it.
I think it was smart for our state dept to apologize to the Islamists world wide about our evil first amendment.
Afterall all the apologies Obama has made to the same for our mere existence and our rich history hasn't worked.
The President of the United States bowing in front of every tin horn dictator on the planet has not yet sunk in.
The billion and a half we gave Egypt last week might calm down a few corrupt poliiticians in the Muslim Brotherhood in the upcoming days.
I can understand why the American media feels Obama is above criticism because it is they who elected him the first time.
