Obama said what? Video was just “an excuse” for planned terrorist attack
Is this guy really this slow on the uptake? He’s now done a complete 180 in just 9 days. If he wasn’t sure of the obvious in the first place, why did he say anything and go to such lengths to apologize for what he now admits was an excuse?
This isn’t leadership. He’s leading from behind, again.
A short time later, President Barack Obama said that protests over a video that ridicules the Prophet Muhammad were used as a pretext for a planned strike against Americans.
“What we do know is that the natural protests that arose because of the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they can also directly harm U.S. interests. Well, we do not know yet. And so we are going to continue to investigate this,” Obama said.
