US Embassy in Pakistan besieged: Obama and Clinton beg demonstrators to stop

Sovereign American soil is invaded, American diplomats are threatened and even killed, and all the President of the United States and his Secretary of State can do is go on Pakistani television and beg them to stop:

Marked by the U.S. Embassy seal, advertisements condemning an anti-Islam video appeared on Pakistani television on Thursday in an apparent attempt to undercut anger against the United States, where the film was produced. Hundreds of youths, however, clashed with security officials as they tried in vain to reach the embassy in Islamabad amid anger in many countries over the filmโ€™s vulgar depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.

The advertisements appear to be an effort by the U.S. government to dampen chaos surrounding the film and undo some of the damage to Americaโ€™s image in the Muslim world. Violence linked to the movie has left at least 30 people in seven countries dead, including the American ambassador to Libya. Two people have died in protests in Pakistan.


The television ads in Pakistan feature clips of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton during press appearances in Washington in which they condemned the video. Their words were subtitled in Urdu.

โ€œWe absolutely reject its content and message,โ€ said Clinton in the advertisement.

A caption on the ad reads: โ€œPaid Content.โ€

The advertisements end with the seal of the American Embassy in Islamabad, the Pakistani capital. It was not known how many channels were airing the ads or whether they were being run in other Muslim countries or just Pakistan.

An embassy spokeswoman declined comment.

She’s probably too embarrassed to speak.

Between this and the possible negotiations to release the Blind Sheikh, the craven, intellectually and morally bankrupt nature of this administration’s foreign policy stands naked for the world to see. Our enemies see the truth — challenge Obama and he’ll give you want you want. Deny the right of free speech? Sure, no problem! Release a mass-murdering terrorist who plotted even more horrific crimes? Let’s talk. As Bryan Preston asks, how soon should we expect the demand for Khalid Shiekh Muhammad’s “humanitarian release?”

Obama and Clinton expect appeasing a bunch of medieval savages to buy us peace and safety.

This is what it will really buy:

US Consulate, Benghazi

American blood, spilled by jihadis who’ll know that, under Obama, they can get away with it.

  1. This is the equivalent of trying to put out a fire by throwing gasoline on it. A groveling appearance on Pakistani TV by the two most prominent treasonous cowards in the US governement will only embolden a collection of rampageous Islamist zealot thugs. Appeasement does not, has not, and will not work. Ever! As Churchill once said, “An appeaser is someone who feeds the alligator hoping he will be eaten last.”

  2. Kate says:

    Maybe this way they will be right about films inciting the violence. Burning visions of Obama and Hillary into their minds via a TV ad may not be the video they had in mind.

  3. Carlos says:

    Islamabad is a great place for folks here to see just how effective Duh-1’s “Please, be nice and I’ll bow to you” diplomacy works.

    What a schmuck.

  4. Yes, because begging the Islamofascists has worked so well in the past.
