Video: U.S. spends $70k on Pakistani ad for Obama and Clinton to personally apologize for video
Unbelievable. See it below.
The U.S. has bought $70,000 worth of air time on seven Pakistani television channels to air an ad showing President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denouncing the anti-Islamic video that has sparked violent protests in the Middle East and North Africa.
In the 30-second ad that began running Thursday, Obama says, “Since our founding the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate religious beliefs of others.” Clinton appears after Obama and says, “Let me state very clearly that the United States has absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its contents. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”
