    And here is a better description of what happened around this call:


    Mr. Morsi initially issued only a mild rebuke of the rioters — and on Facebook — while his movement, the Muslim Brotherhood, called for more protests. And though the Egyptian police coordinated with American officials, Mr. Morsi waited 24 hours before issuing his statement against the militants who stormed the embassy.

    But even as demonstrations continued, the official tone changed abruptly after a blunt phone call to Mr. Morsi from President Obama, who warned that relations would be jeopardized if Egyptian authorities failed to protect American diplomats and stand more firmly against anti-American attacks.

    The following day, searching for a middle ground, Mr. Morsi appeared on national television, telling Egyptians it was their “religious duty to protect our guests and those who come to us from outside our nation,” including their embassies, and businesses. “I know that the people attacking the embassies do not represent any of us. We all have to cooperate to express opinions while maintaining our principles, our correct peaceful ways that the whole world accepts,” he said.

    linkypoo...
    Yes yes.....all well after the fact. The Religious Leaders are the Clerics. Not Morsi! Moreover such should have been done so intently after the Burning of the Qurans in Afghanistan. So that All Religious leaders.....Were Put on the Same Page!

    So you are blaming Obama for not be psychic enough to have done this BEFORE it all happened?

    The government is accepting the help and is not guided by polls. One of the reasons for the embassy in Cairo was because of the sizable aid accepted by the Egyptian government. Indeed, "Washington has a large embassy in Cairo, partly because of a vast aid program that began after Egypt signed a peace deal with Israel in 1979. Washington gives $1.3 billion in aid each year to Egypt's army plus additional funds for its government."

    Uhm they burned the Qurans.....when did you say? Just how do you think a Leader can be proactive, especially after several incidents that take have taken place on his watch?

    Or are you saying that this President cannot adapt and improvise?

    Also Morsi has told Obama he needs 5 Billion, not 1.3!

    Wrong idea. Select one place. Destroy it. Completely. I think Mecca is the right target. Create a list of Islamist "holy" places. One riot, one place. Even swap. You destroy a Burger King. We destroy a Mecca. Give the people enough warning to depart of they choose to. Otherwise arrange the meeting of the Islamist with Allah.

    Then let's convert the survivors to Christianity at the tips of spears if necessary.

    The countries in the mid-east know how weak Obama is and they are taking advantage of that weakness....This slap in our face would have never happened under President Bush.

    We can begin by cutting off the flow of US dollars to the nations where riots occurred and the locals did nothing to stop it.
    Then we can give them all a good spanking.

    Let us begin with Iran. I believe it is time we use nuclear weapons to dig up their underground facilities. Use the nukes up. We can make more.

    Do you think he thought about the Libyan Guard who switched sides and joined the protestors? Wonder if he pictured any Libyans Taking Washing machines and desks. Chairs and anything that wasnt nailed down? What about our Troopers that get shot in the back in Afghanistan by those they are training? Plus let not forget Hillary talking about how Assad was a reformer before she became the SOS.

    Do you think he ever thought about.....Damn, I scrwed this one up?
