Obama Sends Apologies as Afghan Koran Protests Rage
February 23, 2012
KABUL, Afghanistan — President Obama apologized on Thursday for the burning of Korans at the largest American base in Afghanistan earlier this week as furious protests raged for a third day and a man wearing Afghan Army uniform turned his weapon on coalition soldiers, killing two of them, bringing the total death toll to 9.
“I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident,” Mr. Obama said in a letter to President Hamid Karzai. “I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies.”
They burned the Korans “by mistake” down in Kabul.
The Afghans rose up, were extremely resentful.
“Kill all the infidels!”
“Death with no sweet farewells!”
“Religion of peace?” It is just so much bull.
