Democrats, more than Republicans, seem more willing to go overseas and make outlandish statements and pretend we don’t know or won’t find out.
Our Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, openly raised the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) on a trip to the Arab world, then compared the shooter Jared Lee Loughner to Muslim extremists. The State Department clarified that she was not saying Loughner should be treated as a terrorist.
“We have extremists in my country. A wonderful, incredibly brave young woman Congress member, Congresswoman Gifford[s], was just shot by an extremist in our country.”
Clinton made these remarks during an “interview” with students in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
“The extremists and their voices, the crazy voices that sometimes get on the TV, that’s not who we are, that’s not who you are, and what we have to do is get through that and make it clear that that doesn’t represent either American or Arab ideas or opinions.”
Now the EXTREMISTS are on TV?!?!
I wonder who she’s referring to?
The student during the interview had asked Clinton why many in the United States target the entire Arab world when assigning blame for the 9/11 attacks. The Secretary of State didn’t set the record straight by stating that WE NEVER MADE THAT ACCUSATION, oh no…Clinton drew a comparison between Arab terrorists that perpetrate violence and Loughner as well as those EXTREMISTS on TV.
The State Department clarified that she was not saying Loughner should be treated as a terrorist.
