Morsi says Egyptians reject 'unlawful acts'As everyone knows, this incident occurred in Cairo, a city controlled by the Egyptian military, over a period of hours. A military that was nowhere to be found as our embassy was being ripped apart.
Brussels (AP) — Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has vowed not to allow attacks on foreign embassies in Cairo, saying the Egyptian people reject such "unlawful acts."
Speaking during a visit to the European Union on Thursday, Morsi said he had spoken to U.S. President Barack Obama and that he condemned "in the clearest terms" attacks in the Libyan city of Benghazi that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.
Crowds protesting at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Wednesday climbed its walls and tore down an American flag, which they replaced briefly with a black, Islamist flag. [link]
Morsi's words are shameful. And disrespectful.
He's one of them. What should we expect?
