.@USEmbassyCairo How about "We condemn the efforts by misguided individuals to act like children when their precious feelings are hurt"?—

The U.S. Embassy in Cairo actually tweeted that. On September 11th. For reals:
The Embassy apparently was trying to head off a backlash as Egyptian Muslims reacted angrily to a U.S.-produced film that critics say is insulting to the Prophet Muhammad. The embassy released a statement of appeasement, and was rewarded later in the day by a rampaging mob which stormed the embassy, tearing down its flag.

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others
Memo to President Obama and the U.S. embassy: They want to kill us, stupid. Your insane thinking, which condones such barbarism by persisting in delusional moral equivalency is revolting. You are excusing anything and everything by taking away any culpability people have for their own actions.
It gets even worse. The embassy has a Twitter account. And the person running the account is beyond the appeasement pale.
Citizens give the U.S. embassy the business. Rightfully so.
Why is the Left so racist? Their bigotry shows every time the claim that people just don’t know any better and are reacting with savagery out of “hurt feelings” or the like. Willing dupes, you see, who are easily led and cannot possibly ever function under their own accord. Appease! Appease like the wind! Give them a little cookie and a pat on the head.
Further, evil exists. The end.
Update: Embassy continues tweeting.
They will continue “criticizing bigotry.” And calling violent mobs “a demonstration,” evidently.
What’s next? Will they follow Obama’s lead and physically bow to the mob, too? Or will they channel Mayor Bloomberg and say that the mob must have been upset by the health care law? The Left demonizes America and its citizens, apologize to those who wish to kill us, and frantically try to avoid looking non-politically correct. The only time they even utter the term Muslim is when they are accusing everyone else of being racist half-wits. When will it end? When will they stop sacrificing lives on the altar of multiculturalism?
Correction: An earlier version of this post reported that the U.S. Embassy statement came on the heels of the attack on the embassy compound. The statement was actually issued prior. In the wake of the attack, the embassy stands by its earlier apology:
The Obama administration is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO.
