Are Military Superiors throwing Subordinates under the Bus?

Well, it appears that all the groveling has paid off added fuel to the fire. Let that be a lesson to you. When Islamists and leftists use intimidation to get you to apologize, they’re usually just getting you to put more blood in the water.

Everyone and their brother has apologized for the Qur’an burnings in Afghanistan, to include our Generals and Barack Obama. As Commander-in-Chief, it’s likely that Obama is responsible for all of the apologies because he has the power to demand our Generals issue one or not. Since Obama issued one, it’s a logical conclusion that it has now become official policy in response to the burnings.

What’d it get us? Well, the leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi has taken the next step by demanding that those responsible be punished. How did we respond? By taking Qaradawi’s order, apparently.

Via the AP:

At least five American military personnel could face a disciplinary review over the burning of Qurans at a U.S. base in Afghanistan as conflicting accounts of what happened emerged Saturday, fueling more confusion over the incident that sparked six days of deadly riots across the nation.

A Western official told The Associated Press that a joint investigation by senior Afghan and U.S. military officials has convinced them that although mistakes were made, there was no intent to desecrate the Qurans and other Islamic religious texts.

The official, who has knowledge of the investigation, said it could lead to a disciplinary review of at least five U.S. military personnel involved. The official did not elaborate and spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case. It is unclear what such a review could recommend.

President Barack Obama and other U.S. officials have apologized and said the Feb. 20 burning at a burn pit at Bagram Air Field outside Kabul was an accident. But the apologies failed to quell the anger, although protests over the burnings have now ebbed.

Americans are beginning to see the true face of Islam. Remember, it seeks to make its opponents / non-Muslims into dhimmis and if that means exploiting situations in Alinsky-style fashion to do it, they will.

See if this excerpt from the book penned by Obama’s ideological mentor – Saul Alinsky – applies:

“The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. … The real arena is corrupt and bloody.”

That’s all this is.
