Barack Obama Apologizes For Burning Korans But Not For Burning Bibles?
It has become exceedingly clear that Barack Obama does not believe that all religions should be treated equally. In recent days Barack Obama has gone to great lengths to apologize for the “inadvertent” burning of Korans by U.S. military forces in Afghanistan. In fact, Obama has given his word that the United States will be “holding accountable those responsible” for the burning of the Korans. But when the U.S. military purposely burned Bibles in Afghanistan a few years ago, there was never any apology from Barack Obama. Christian groups all over the U.S. expressed great outrage but there was dead silence from Obama. So why the double standard? Do Muslims get an apology because they are willing to become violent over the burning of a Koran? Does Barack Obama consider a Koran to be more valuable than a Bible? Exactly what in the world is going on here?
Barack Obama sent Afghan President Hamid Karzai a three page letter on Thursday apologizing for the burning of Korans at a NATO air base in Bagram. In the letter, Obama specifically promised that those “responsible” would be punished….
“The error was inadvertent; I assure you that we will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding accountable those responsible.”
Well, the truth is that the soldiers that dumped the Korans into the incinerator were just following orders.
So who is going to be held responsible?
Their superior officers?
Someone higher up in the chain of command?
Barack Obama is sitting in the chair of the Commander in Chief.
Doesn’t the buck stop with him?
