Jay Carney: Protests Not Directed At United States writ large or U.S. Policy

Insists it's about the movie


White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said today at the daily press briefing:

"This is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, not to, obviously, the Administration, not the to the American people. It is in response to a video, a film, that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting, that in now way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at US policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive,and, to Muslims. Again, this is not in any way justifying violence, and we've spoken very clearly out against that, and condemned it."
