Two More US Soldiers Killed After Obama Claims Apology to Afghans Over Qur’an Burning ‘Calmed Things Down’

When Obama speaks, the oceans recede, the planet heals, and he demonstrates yet again just how often he is out of touch with reality …

By DEVIN DWYER – “President Obama said his formal apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the burning of Korans by U.S. troops last week has ‘calmed things down’ after the incident sparked an outbreak of violence across the country.

‘We’re not out of the woods yet,’ Obama said in an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Bob Woodruff at the White House. ‘But my criteria in any decision I make, getting recommendations from folks who are actually on the ground, is what is going to best protect our folks and make sure that they can accomplish their mission.’

The president’s comments came just hours before a formal White House dinner to honor Iraq War veterans, some of whom have also served in Afghanistan and may be redeploying there to assist ongoing U.S. military operations. Woodruff was the only journalist invited to attend the dinner.

Obama said his letter to Karzai aimed to curb further danger to U.S. troops on the ground. It reportedly expressed regret for the apparently inadvertent burning of the Korans, the sacred text of Islam, on a U.S. military base in Afghanistan.” Read more.

2 US troops killed in Afghanistan following Koran burning – “Two American soldiers were killed Thursday in a shooting by an Afghan soldier and a literacy teacher at a joint base in southern Afghanistan, officials said, the latest in a series of deaths as anti-Americanism rises following the burning of Korans by U.S. soldiers. Both were killed on the same day that the top NATO commander allowed a small number of foreign advisers to return to work at Afghan ministries after more than a week of being locked down in secure locations because of the killing of two other Americans. Thursday’s killings raised to six the number of Americans killed in less than two weeks amid heightened tensions over the Feb. 20 burning of Korans and other Islamic texts that had been dumped in a garbage pit at Bagram Air Field near Kabul. More than 30 Afghans also were killed in six days of violent riots that broke out after the incident.” Read more.

    Let’s hope it gets somewhere. As a side note, Andrew Breitbart was going to release information on Obama at some point as well, but was found dead early this morning.
