White House Press Scretary Jay Carney, in a statement that can only can be decribed as delusional, says the Middle East protests are not directed at the United States. “This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.” I guess he must have missed the pictures of burning American flags. which certainly seems like anti-US protests to me.
