Krauthammer Blasts Obama Administration For Apologizing To Egyptian Mob

Charles Krauthammer, always spot on, blasted the U.S. for apologizing to the mobs that destroyed a U.S. flag at the embassy in Cairo, and killed and wounded two Americans at the consulate in Libya in protest of an anti-Islam film produced in the U.S. by Coptic Christian Egyptian expats.

“That statement is am embarrassment,” Krauthammer said. “That’s a hostage statement. That’s a mob of al-Qaida sympathizers in Egypt forcing the United States into making a statement essentially of apology — on 9/11 of all days — for something of which we are not responsible. I would issue a statement saying to the mob, ‘Go to hell.’ The way America works, the way a democracy works, is that everybody has a right to express themselves. We don’t police our speech and you ought to apologize to the United States for storming an embassy and the violation of the ultimate sacred principle of democracy, which is protecting embassies and missions abroad. For the U.S. to what, essentially, issue a veiled apology, I think is disgraceful.”
