Palazzo – Afghan killings, Koran burning isolated incidents

Mississippi Rep. Steven Palazzo echoed McKeon, slapping the “isolated incident” and “anomaly” tags on both the Koran burnings and the mass homicide.

National security experts say the incidents, which sparked revenge killings of U.S. troops and mass protests, could undermine Washington’s recent progress in Afghanistan.

Both House Republicans pinned much of the blame for such worries on Obama.

Palazzo added that the Commander-in-chief spends too much time apologizing—as he did to the Afghan people after copies of the Koran were incinerated by American soldiers.
