Pakistani foreign minister thanks Clinton for ripping anti-Islam movie

“Your condemnation has given a strong message that the United States government not only condemns it but has absolutely no support to such blasphemous videos or content anywhere. I think that is an important message, and that message should go a long way in ending the violence on many streets in the world.”

Khar failed to mention protesters using the video to foment violence, however, even though Clinton had opened the door for her to do so just moments earlier. 

“We found the video that’s at the core of this series of events offensive, disgusting, reprehensible,” Clinton said. “But that does not provide justification for violence, and therefore it is important for responsible leaders, indeed responsible people everywhere, to stand up and speak out against violence and particularly against those who would exploit this difficult moment to advance their own extremist ideologies.”
