Obama Administration Disavows Cairo Apology

The Obama administration "is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that seemed to apologize for anti-Muslim activity in the United States," Politico reports.

The embassy put out a statement that apologized for an anti-Muslim film being circulated by an Israeli-American real estate developer and soon "came under widespread criticism for failing to defend free speech in the face of threats of violence. Egyptian protesters rioted anyway, breaching the embassy walls and tearing down the American flag."

Meanwhile, NBC News reports Mitt Romney attacked the administration claiming its first response was "to sympathize" with the attackers -- even though the embassy statement came out before the protests at the embassy.
