Unreal. Obama Administration Is Running $70,000 Apology Ads in Pakistan (Video)

These ads are running in Pakistan.
FOX News reported the apology ads are costing the American public $70,000.
Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton apologize to Pakistanis for an obscure YouTube video that is blocked in Pakistan.
The ad is also posted on the US Embassy in Islamabad Facebook page:

The ads include the Seal of the American Embassy in Islamabad.

660 News reported, via FOX Nation:

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 film’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 America’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.

In recent days, the decision by a French satirical magazine to release cartoons crudely depicting the prophet has added to the tension, as may the upcoming issue of the German satirical magazine Titanic. The magazine’s co-editor Martin Sonneborn said it was up to readers to decide whether the cover of an Arab wielding a sword actually depicts the Prophet Muhammad.

Most outrage appears linked to the amateurish movie, which portrays the prophet as a fraud, womanizer and child molester.

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.

“We absolutely reject its content and message,” said Clinton in the advertisement.

A caption on the ad reads: “Paid Content.”

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.

Pakistani protesters torched photos of “Obama the Dog” today.

For the record… At the same time they’re running apology ads in Pakistan they are assisting Hollywood with a dead Osama movie.

    That is pretty darned outrageous – an American president apologizing for an American Citizen exercising his Constitutional Right to Freedom of Speech.

    It really is funny that the muslims get so worked up over people criticizing their religion while saying horrendous things about Christians and Jews – not to mention little things like kidnapping of Christian girls, bombing churches while the congregations are at prayer, literal crucifixion . .

    ‘Not Believing’ Doesn’t Make It ‘Not True’

    [Obama, however, had a starkly different view. He believed that the economic stresses of the Carter years meant revolution was still imminent. The election of Reagan was simply a minor set-back in terms of the coming revolution. As I recall, Obama repeatedly used the phrase “When the revolution comes….” In my mind, I remember thinking that Obama was blindly sticking to the simple Marxist theory that had characterized my own views while I was an undergraduate at Occidental College. “There’s going to be a revolution,” Obama said, “we need to be organized and grow the movement.” In Obama’s view, our role must be to educate others so that we might usher in more quickly this inevitable revolution.]

    These apologies are seen as an admission of guilt and actually places us in a position that punishment should be given. It justifies the growing hatred and dissatisfaction of America. It is so sad that our so-called “leadership” does not realize the cultural implication of groveling in apology. It is not seen as a display of strength and self-confidence but instead appears as weakness and self-doubt.

  • Anatol Lieven’s book “Pakistan: A hard Country” quotes same one saying Pakistan’s a country where if you take one step back, you never go forward again. This looks like a few steps back to me, and I suspect AQ and the rest of the radicals well see it as such too. Going to be a hard time going forward again.

    #8 No, Obama is full of crap.

    Obama & Lying Crew thought they were so cute to stand up and preach at us about civility and morals because they were just so morally superior with war.

    Yes, they would close Gitmo. Yes, they would bring the trials into NYC. All these acts were solitary individuals. Nope. Not terrorists. They just happen to be crimes (uh, is that better or worst than a ‘hate’ crime). No, they did not capture and do the dirty so called torture. They would just kill. They would kill everyone on a list. They would focus on getting Osama and that would be that. They would give away Iraq and get out of Afghan. Now that’s the way to do it.

    Lynn Cheney said that the troubling part was that they were not capturing, interrogating and getting the info.

    Yep. Sure looks like it. The ME is on fire in case any Obama supporter happens to turn their head and look. Yep. Look through the fog of Poop Scoopers and view those streets.

    Psstt….clue that it might not be that big staged production by brownshirts after the ‘felon’.

    Obama definately built all this mess.

    Obama will force us to pay for what he built (even ads). Looks like he built hell on earth to me and God please help our soldiers.

    At the very least, it looks like he might have gotten rid of all that nasty oil???

    Obama is stoking the winds of war by inciting these barbaric dimwit savages to go on the rampage.

    OBAMA and his administration new three days before that AL Qaida was going to use Sept 11 to retaliate for Drone killings. . . The ones HE, Obama himself, authorizes.

    So what does Obama do to prepare embassies all over, especially in hotbed countries. .NOTHING. . that’s right. . NOTHING!!!!

    But it gets better. .to deflect any criticisms from his administrations, he has the US Egyptian Embassy issue an apology for a film (if you can call it that) that was released IN JULY to get mobs of dimwits agitated and go on a rampage. .

    I SAY IT IS OBAMA WHO INSTIGATED THESE RIOTS. . .
    It is the leftist way to distract. . .
    and he stokes it each and every time he attacks America’s free speech and our way of life instead of condemning the assailants.

    And Obozo does’t even put pressure on host governments to assist and protect our people and property. . .

    Then he lies. .

    Obama lies – – – Democracy dies . . . and so do Ambassadors, Seals and aides!

    Time to send Obama packing. . .

    Selective Edit? Mother Jones Admits Romney Tape Missing ‘One to Two Minutes’

    Earlier on Tuesday, new media pioneer James O’Keefe pointed out the hypocrisy of the mainstream media in accepting, without question, a snippet of a video recording that aimed to portray a Republican in a bad light, while conservatives are still doubted even after providing full video or audio, as O’Keefe did with his famous ACORN tapes.

    Whether Romney is right or wrong about the “47 percent” of Americans he says have become dependent on government–he stood by his May remarks on Monday evening–he may have been taken out of context.

    Mother Jones has failed a basic test and broken its promise to its readers and the public. There is now reason to doubt that it provided Romney’s full remarks–not just the context, but the remarks themselves. And there is new reason to suspect manipulation.

    Corn promised the complete version of Romney’s remarks. Instead, he provided a version that is missing a large portion of video at the critical moment.

    Mother Jones’s entire story now deserves to be treated with suspicion, if not contempt.

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/09/19/Mother-Jones-Admits-Romney-Tape-Missing-One-or-Two-Minutes

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The second part of tape that they left out speak about printing money that we don’t have and that because of this we will never get loans for we have become bankrupt. This was what Romney was saying also, his source was from a former Federal Reserve person..

    Why Romney could not have said that tape deletes his comments on Fiscal responsibilities .

    ot but it there is so much corruption and purposefully lies, deleting the speech of Romney’s and this is becoming a petty campaign on all sides.

    We know Obama is a Muslim we know he is not caring about our Allies and more about the Muslims there and here.

    I want Romney to start giving facts and what we are reading and the videos are out there. OBAMA MUST BE DEFEATED. WE HAVE IMPORTANT ISSUES, DIRE ISSUES. COME ON ROMNEY.

    this apology from a guy that bragged about taking out osama bin laden and kills pakistani’s with drone strikes. i vote that we send hillary and obama to the pakistani embassy, then leave them there with the same security they afforded to ambassador stevens. we can put up with biden for a few months…

  • BG:

    I’ve read that quote and the larger Manifesto that Obama wrote. I knew about him in 2004. I said that he was a Muslim plant to change America into an enemy of Israel and a friend of the Saudis and Palestinians.

    He’s also a Marxist Commie like his Weather Underground buddies, the New Party, the old and new SDS, Midwest Academy, SEIU, ACORN, CODE PINK, MoveOn, and all of George Soros’s leftwing loonies.

    I just can’t believe it how Obama and Hillary are so stupid as to send these messages to the murderers of our people! With our taxpayer money no less. Everyday they do something else to hurt us and I mean Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama and his administration! Clinton and Obama have blood on their hands, they didn’t protect the Americans with marines and bullets purposely, again, to appease the enemy. If those beautiful Seals at the Embassy had guns on Sept. 11th, they’d be alive today. Its just the height of stupidity, what else could it be? We’ve got to get them out, pray, thats all we can do and hopefully people will vote them out, but I don’t know, its up to God.

  • AuntieMadder

    Absolutely disgusting.

    Just in case any Pakistanis are reading this, please note that Hillary Clinton and your Kenya Boy the Dog (eater) do NOT speak for me. I am not sorry about any YouTube films about your prophet MooHamHead (piss be upon him). I do not apologize to you for jack sh*t. Get over yourselves already.

  • lizzytalorburton

    Watch out for Hillary Clinton. She wants to run for President in 2016!!!! She is just like Obama. She has no qualifications for Secretary of State or President of the United States. What did she ever do before Secy of State? Nothing, she was first lady and couldn’t get her healthcare done. Because she wants to run in 16, thats why she blames the video, she doesn’t want to be blamed for not protecting those poor guys in Libya. We can’t forget that she is responsible for them getting killed in Libya. Its hard to believe that she turned out to be so stupid and crazy not to protect them and to blame the video for their deaths and now sending ads to Pakistan???

    censor the information, but first and foremost LIE when it’s
    not even necessary in their zest to squelch it..

    scarier even is the fact that we seem to have lost America’s identity
    via the very representatives on both sides of the isle who are either
    deliberately ignorant or purposefully silent, that of which, along with
    the reality of actions Obama has taken via both domestic and foreign
    policy towards IslaMarxism (by any other names) is nothing short of
    astoundingly treasonous imho..

    I know as you do, what is happening around the world is killing our soldiers, Emotionally.

    The disrespect that this administration has befallen on them and on those who have die.

    Our only option to give our troops and those who have fought before them, NOW, is to vote Obama out of office. He is not up to the job. NEVER WAS AND NEVER WILL BE.

    He is weak and other nations are obtaining Nuclear weapons and they will not just be in Iran but terrorists will get their hands on these weapons of Mass destruction. We cannot rest assured that the border is doing fine. These terrorists are bold and I feel that is where they are looking to get into this nation.

    These ads are weakening our Country. They were not necessary but if they wanted to make and ad, they should have stood up and said, we are a free nation and we have our Constitution and we will always stand with it.

    But even that is too late, Obama created this mess and he owns it until Romney is elected. Things will be reversed. I pray because this burning of our Flag is a disgrace upon all of us and our troops.

  • valerie

    Interesting. I’ve been taking my son to a local gym, which has a large room full of aerobics machines by the door. It also has a bank of TVs which have fixed programming, and cards that say which network. There’s CNN, ESPN, local news, one more, and FOX.

    I pick my spot based on the location of a fan, so I would always wind up in front of the CNN screen.

    However. I’ve had reason to just stop and observe lately. A few weeks ago, I noticed that the FOX side of the room was full, and that the room had another cluster around the ESPN screen, but that most of the CNN area (with what I thought of as prime spaces) was empty. I also noticed a substantial fraction of the exercisers actually watching FOX. This has happened several times since, and even held through turnover periods: the machines in front of the TV carrying FOX would empty and re-fill quickly.

    The TV with FOX on it was located on the far (lower traffic) side of the room.

    Odd, unscientific, but instructive because this is happening in California.

    Libya Murders: Buck Stops with Obama

    The Obama Administration and the Clinton State Department were warned about the attacks. They should have seen it coming, Ambassador Stevens did.

    The death of these Americans and the projection of weakness and humiliation of the United States to the Middle East is a direct result of President Barack Obama’s fecklessness and incompetence. The attacks happened on his watch and represent the biggest failure of his tenure as Commander-in-Chief.

    It has been ten days since the bloody attack on the United States mission in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the assassination of Amb. Stevens and the facts paint a bleak picture of a disengaged and aloof Commander-in-Chief and a Secretary of State more concerned about the United States’ image rather than the well-being of the diplomats in her charge.

    On September 10th, the eve of the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks, a new video was released by al-Qaeda spiritual leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri calling Libyans to rise up against Americans and avenge the death of Al Qaeda #2 Abu-Yahya al-Libi, who had been killed by a US drone attack in June. Contemporaneous accounts of the video make no mention of any reference to the anti-Islam YouTube video that is now being blamed for the recent Middle East violence.

    The al-Qaeda video calling for revenge for the death of Abu-Yahya al-Libi is significant to the attacks in Libya because Abu-Yahya was from Libya. Hence the suffix to his name “al-Libi.” Libyan terrorists and Islamists knew Abu-Yaha well. He was a hero to the Islamist extremists in that country. The announcement of his “martyrdom” would surely have a significant resonance on the “Arab Street” of Libya. Add to that the built-in significance of the anniversary of the September 11th attacks and even an amateur observer of world events would see a security concern brewing in Libya.

    [……………….]

    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/09/21/Ambassador-Assasinated-On-Obamas-Watch

    SHAME ON HIM, I believe his actions are treasonous. Beyond reproach. We are seeing the most asinine administration in our history. The apologies coming after the deaths of servicemen and ambassador and that happen on 9/11, 11 year anniversary and that Amb. Christopher Stevens had mention his life was in danger. They were warned and they left Americans to hang out to dry.

  • sandy

    Whatever next? Who is going to apologize to the family of our dead Ambassador? The Obama administration know this was Terrorism but for Obama to admit that he would have to admit that there was no extra protection ordered for the 9/11 anniversary. And that warnings of attacks were ignored. What’s a fallen Messiah to do? Oh yeah apologize to the perps because they had a bad day.

    No matter that his likeness was burned in effigy. Obama feels he can make friends with the Muslims and that maybe if he throws a few billion of our dollars their way all will be forgotten. However, the fact that Israel wanted to build apartments in their own country — that can never be forgiven.

    But the MSM who occupy Obama’s anal track want us to believe the election is over and he is going to be a big winner because more people trust his foreign policy.
