Americans Killed By Film (can calls for “Film Control” be far behind?)

Yahoo and the AP are on a roll. Via this story we learn that our fellow Americans killed over the past several days were killed by a film.

“US braces for more violence from anti-Muslim film”

So screams the headline over a story by-lined by Kimberly Dozier and Matthew Lee.   The money quotes are from that grand Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

The U.S. put all of its diplomatic missions overseas on high alert, and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton delivered an explicit denunciation of the video as the administration sought to pre-empt further turmoil at its embassies and consulates.

“The United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video,” she said before a meeting with the foreign minister of Morocco at the State Department. “We absolutely reject its content and message.”

“To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible,” Clinton said. “It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose: to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.”

Um, so the Secretary of State is now a film critic? Will she be releasing a similar statement the next time conservative Christians voice concern over a particularly offensive Hollywood production?

No, I thought not.

What a cast of fools we have running this country.
