Press Secty, Jay Carney says
Like we're really dumb enough to believe that? The people who have killed and destroyed obviously believe that the video = U.S. ... period.This is a fairly volatile situation, and it is in response not to U.S. policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to the American people. It is in response to a video – a film – that we have judged to be reprehensive and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it. But this is not a case of protests directed at the United States, writ large, or at U.S. policy. This is in response to a video that is offensive and – to Muslims.
If this guy is willing to go on record saying stuff like this, he is either incredibly dumb or incredibly lacking in character.
