Chairman Of The Joint Chiefs Of Staff Calls Pastor Terry Jones Asking Him To Disavow Mohammed Film
Oh, for God's sake.
What is this? Play time in America? Is the General playing like he's in charge or something?
He is not in charge. The Constitution is. He needs to shove his request up his ass.
From Al Arabiya:
The U.S. military’s top officer has urged a controversial Christian pastor to disavow a film that has ignited violent protests over its portrayal of the Islamic faith, a spokesman said Wednesday.
A day after a deadly assault on the U.S. consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi possibly sparked by the movie, General Martin Dempsey made a direct appeal to Pastor Terry Jones to reject the film to defuse tensions.
“In the brief call, Gen. Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause,” his spokesman Colonel Dave Lapan said in an email.
“He asked Mr Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film,” he said.
The attack in Benghazi killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three colleagues, while at least five other Americans were wounded, officials said.
