The U.S. Embassy in Cairo issued this press release:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims
– as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United
States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious
beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the
religious beliefs of others

Am I close?

You're not close, you're not even on the same planet.
Let's see if we understand this. The US Embassy put out a statement. apparently independent of any official approval. The statement was a
condemnation of a film. I think we all know which one. a rather crude, incendiary, demeaning and outrageous depiction of the Muslim prophet Mohammad.
A film calculated to enrage extreme Muslims. Six hours after the release of this statement by the embassy, not by the administration, and certainly
not a personal statement by the president, but a release approved by embassy officials on the scene in Egypt, rioting began. Now lets look at the
statement first of all. There is no apology in it. Just a condemnation of something that needed to be condemned. This low film.
You say, "President Obama stood by this statement rather than saying the mob was to blame.
Romney stated that Obama should condemn the Muslim mob and not the film makers."
This is just one convoluted piece of disinformation. I would just call it a lie but I'm afraid you are truly not capable of understanding the
inaccuracies in you statement. The President did condemn the mob. I don't remember him saying anything about the film or it's makers, but the
harshest of denouncements would not be out of line.
I have no problem with an honest criticism. but to fabricate an out and out dishonesty about our Commander in Chief at a time when a national unity is
of utmost importance, is just unconscionable, and bordering on treasonable
I can see that in this election regards for the truth have taken a back seat, and otherwise reasonable men have taken to lies as a legitimate
replacement for debate, but this deliberate act of candidate Romney has diminished him my eyes to a very low level.
