So bottom line is WH spox Carney is insisting embassy violence is not anti-American but totally motivated by the movie?—

Yes, he is. Press secretary Jay Carney fully exposed his cuckoo pants delusions today.
That’s right. Press secretary Carney claims that the attacks on our embassies, growing in number every hour and already resulting in deaths, are not actually attacks on the United States. Nor the administration, of course! Obama is perfect and the raging radical Islamists totally get his nuance-y nuance. It’s all about a month old crummy movie, you see.
Huh. Weird. Truth is so hard!
More from The Washington Free Beacon:
White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the violent protests throughout the Middle East are not directed at the United States or U.S. policy but are a response to a YouTube video:
CARNEY: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.
Again, this is not in any way justifying violence, and we have spoken very clearly out against that and condemned it. And the president is making sure in his conversations with leaders around the region that they are committed as hosts to diplomatic facilities to protect both personnel and buildings and other facilities that are part of the U.S. representation in those countries.
Obviously not a response to Obama. Obviously. The world loves us now and stuff! Except for, you know, when they want us to die.
It’s a response to a video. That the administration has judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. Icky, old free speech! Eww!
Citizens swiftly give Jay Carney the business.

Maybe Carney is skipping briefings to hit up Vegas, too.
"Death to America" is a dogwhistle code for "Peacefully protesting against YouTube!" – Carney—
