    President Obama said this afternoon that he is “deeply disturbed by the crashing of the English embassy”

    In case the president is unaware, England forms part of Great Britain, which also includes Scotland and Wales, though not Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. There is no such thing as an “English” embassy anywhere in the world, and there hasn’t been one for several centuries.

    Sequestered News - Did Obama Make Another Gaffe? Calls British Embassy ?English? Embassy

    Gotcha!!! You Bush bashers... YOUR smartest President doesn't seem to know ENGLAND is Part of Great Britain!!!

    Just one more brick he has dropped over the years. ANd not an important one. But he keeps doing this on a regular basis. He campaigned on the concept that he wouldn't be as bad at annoying the rest of the world with this kind of stupid as Bush was.

    Bush would have received a weeks worth of 24 hour coverage over this. That is also a stupid. It is worth noting he does this almost every time he opens his mouth and move on. There is more important stuff.

    YOUR RACIST!!!

    How dare you criticized Him, the Great One, the Savior, the Almighty Barack Hussein Obama.

    OF COURSE he meant "English" as in....like...you know...they speak English inside there, not Arabic, so since he is so much more wordly than you, of course, he being familiar with Arabic cultures knows they refer to certain buildings as "English" because they speak English.....so, like, they refer to Embassy.....they are like "English".......see how much smarter he is than you racists??!!

    Why is OBAMA disturbed?

    You don't remember the Carter Administration--where 50 American hostages were held by radical Iranian maniacs for 1-1/2 years--when Iran took over the American embassy in the 1970's.

    What did Obama really believe that they have had a change of heart since then---:lol::lol:
