Don't Include Me Mr. President

Even though everyone involved agrees that US soldiers inadvertently and unintentionally burned some Korans in Afghanistan, Obama felt it necessary to apologize on February 23.

From CNN.com "Obama apologizes to Afghanistan after Koran burning."  
This from Bloomberg.com: Obama said: “I wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident” in which personnel at the Bagram air base threw copies of the Koran and other books into a burning rubbish pile. “I extend to you and the Afghan people my sincere apologies,”
In the letter delivered to Afghan president Hamid Karzai, Obama said "We will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, including holding accountable those responsible,"

This apology [the third apology as Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and US military officials had already issued apologies] occurred as two US soldiers were being killed by an Afghan Muslim soldier [an Afghan soldier who are military men are fighting and dying for].

Now I am watching on Fox News, we are apologizing again, today [Friday].  My God, this is sickening. Our brave soldiers  [sacrificing over in Afghanistan trying to help the people of Afghanistan escape the evils of the Taliban and Al Qaida] make an unintentional mistake, and we [Obama administration] are apologizing over and over and over again to the people [Afghan Muslims] that  are rioting and killing our soldiers. Karzai should be apologizing to us, not the other way around.  While I am not supporting Newt Gingrich for president, I agree with him 100% when he called Obama's  apology to Karzai, "disgusting."

Mr. President, I know you speak for the entire country when you issue an apology, but I want to state publicly, you do not speak for me.

God Bless our military men that were killed over this incident, and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.  May God Bless all the families.

Agree completely big mike---- writing hate and terror messages in the Koran is against Islam supposedly, but no one in our administration says that-- nothing any Muslim terrorist does is condemed by this president, but he has NO hesitation to criticize our military--- but I'm suppose to believe Obama is pro- American??!!
