Santorum: Obama erred in apologizing for burning of Qurans

Associated Press

WASHINGTON

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Santorum criticized President Barack Obama’s apology for the burning of Qurans in Afghanistan, adding that Afghanistan should apologize to the U.S. for the deaths of four U.S. soldiers during six days of violence sparked by the incident.

“There was nothing deliberately done wrong here,” Santorum said today on ABC’s “This Week”. “This was something that happened as a mistake. Killing Americans in uniform is not a mistake. It was something that deliberate.”

More than 30 people have been killed in clashes since it emerged Tuesday that copies of the Muslim holy book and other religious materials had been thrown into a fire pit used to burn garbage at Bagram Air Field, a large U.S. base north of Kabul. Protesters angry over Quran burnings by American troops lobbed grenades today at a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan and clashed with police and troops in a day of violence that left seven international troops wounded and two Afghans dead.

“The response needs to be apologized for by (President Hamid) Karzai and the Afghan people for attacking and killing our men and women in uniform and overreacting to this inadvertent mistake,” Santorum said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this morning.

These are the same people who will kill you for being a Christian. This is nothing more that an excuse to lash out. I wonder what would happen if we started slaughtering Muslims in the United States for the sole reason for being Muslim. They are now killing people for burning a Quaran. You can't reason with these people. The only thing they understand is death. They act like they have never burned a Bible before. This will never stop because nothing gets done about it.
