Innocence of Muslims

US Buys Ads in Pakistan to Condemn Innocence of Muslims Video

Promotes America's tolerance of religion (though apparently not speech)

The Obama administration is trying to tamp down public anger in Pakistan over the anti-Islam film produced in the U.S.

The American embassy in Islamabad is spending $70,000 to run an ad on Pakistani television featuring President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton denouncing the video.

The State Department says the embassy compiled clips of Obama and Clinton rejecting the contents of the movie and extolling American tolerance for all religions into a 30-second public service announcement that is running on seven Pakistani networks.
