It’s a bit ironic that the name of the man at the U.S. State Department who said that religion is not behind the bombings of Christian churches by Muslims, is Jonnie Carson because it sounded like an extremely bad joke.
Via CNS News:
Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Johnnie Carson said Monday that “religion is not driving extremist violence” in Nigeria–just one day after a Christian church conducting an Easter service was targeted by a car bombing that left 39 dead.
Similarly, on Christmas Day, the Nigerian Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, attacked a Catholic church in that country, killing more than 40 people.
“I want to take this opportunity to stress one key point and that is that religion is not driving extremist violence either in Jos or northern Nigeria,” Assistant Secretary of State Carson said Monday at a forum on U.S. policy toward Nigeria held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in Washington, D.C.
Watch only if you can stomach bald-faced lies. This guy actually gives “Baghdad Bob” a run for his money.
