Mitt Romney excoriated the Obama administration’s handling the Libyan ambassador killing in the incident’s early moments.
The U.S. Embassy in Cairo at first issued a statement saying, in part, that it condemns “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
Obama fired back that it was a political attack.
“I think it’s a terrible course for America to (issue) an apology for our values,” Romney said. “An apology for America’s values is never the right course.”
Obama tried to distance himself from the statement, but Romney said it was a reflection of the administration’s mixed message it is sending to the Arab world.
