On March 1, 2012, Obama said his apology had calmed things down.
Here are his quotes by way of Fox News.
- “It calmed things down.”
- “it was important … to make sure our troops who are there right now are not placed in further danger.”
Almost two weeks has passed. US service members have been killed in retaliation. And a rogue soldier went on a gruesome rampage killing 16 civilians. The situation is far from calm.
President Obama lacks a sense of reality. He claims himself to be the fourth best president. He claims the economy is back on track when millions are still unemployed. He boasts about algae as a source of energy despite the fact that science has not caught up yet.
We can file this under another Obama foreign policy blunder. The retaliation the US faced from Afghanistan was never followed up by an apology from Karzai.
