Palin & Newt: Afghanistan Should Apologize For The Killing Of Two US Soldiers Over Burned Korans

Thanks to Smitty at The Other McCain for the link!

The Apologist in Chief, Richard Milhous Obama, apologized to the leader of Afghanistan for the burning of some Korans by US troops.

As a result of the Koran burning, two US soldiers were killed, and not a peep from Obama.

So far Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich (the only one so far of the four GOP candidates) have said Afghanistan should apologize for the killing of our troops.

Palin, from her Facebook page:

Obama apologizes for the inadvertent Koran burning this week; now the U.S. trained and protected Afghan Army can apologize for killing two of our soldiers yesterday.

Newt, from CNN:

Newt Gingrich emerged Thursday as the first Republican White House hopeful to criticize President Barack Obama for apologizing after Muslim holy books containing extremist language were burned by NATO soldiers.

Gingrich told a crowd in Spokane, Washington, "President Obama surrendered twice today and I think that deserves to be brought to the country's attention."

He continued, "The president apologized for the burning, but I haven't seen the president demand that the government of Afghanistan apologize for the killing of two young Americans."

Gingrich said Obama was ignoring the treat of radical Muslims intent on harming Americans.

"There seems to be nothing that radical Islamists can do to get Barack Obama's attention in a negative way, and he is consistently apologizing to people who do not deserve the apology of the president of the United States, period," Gingrich said.

Amen! Spoken like a leader with moral clarity we need right now.

Oh, and about those Korans (This Ain't Hell).

All of these protests are going on while the president is apologizing for US troops using an accepted method of destroying defaced Korans. Apparently, that’s how the Muslims themselves rid themselves of old Korans. The Korans in question were used to pass extremist messages between prisoners at the detention center. According to Islamic Law, writing in the Koran is considered to be defacing the holy book. So what is really going on here? (my emphasis)

Well, this whole thing proves (along with cutting military size and benefits to "make budget cuts") once again how Obama really doesn't give a damn about our troops. Except of course when they do something he can claim credit for and then he can jet around the country spiking the football.

"...Muslim holy books containing extremist language..." Isn't that a given?
