Hey Pakistan.......Sorry

Post by Marconius on Tue Jul 03, 2012 9:37 pm

Secretary of State Clinton apologizes for the accidental deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Key Paragraph:

But the accord carries risks for both governments — threatening to make Pakistan's already fragile civilian leadership look weak and subservient to the United States while offering fodder to Republicans, including presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who contend that President Barack Obama says "sorry" too easily.

Pretty sad when even a simple apology can be misconstrued as a sign of weakness for both parties involved.

Probably not 'AN' apology so much as it is the frequency of the apologies involved.
