Obama foreign policy metlt down...

First there is report Obama is refusing to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the end of this month. Then, our embassies in Libya and Egypt get attacked over a little known anti-Muslim film. The attacks prompt a condemnation of the movie from our Embassy in Egypt. Then, team Obama throws the Embassy under the buss.
Via Politico:
The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO.
The U.S. embassy in Cairo put out a statement early Tuesday that apologized for an anti-Muslim film being circulated by an Israeli-American real estate developer.
“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,” the embassy said in a statement published online

Next, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton breaks ranks and condemns the movie.
WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has confirmed that a State Department officer was killed Tuesday in Libya during an attack on the U.S. consulate.
Clinton said in a statement Tuesday night that she condemned the attack in the strongest terms and has called the Libyan president to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. She says that some are trying to justify — quote — “this vicious behavior” as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. She says the U.S. deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
Stay tuned. This position may change again today.
