U.S. Strongly Condemns Stoning Of Woman
Philip J. Crowley
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Public Affairs

We condemn in the strongest possible terms the brutal stoning of a woman in Orakzai, Pakistan, allegedly by members of the Pakistani Taliban, which is depicted in a video circulating on the internet.
This vicious attack, carried out as a crowd of onlookers watched, violates all norms of human decency and is a chilling example of the cowardly disregard violent extremists have for human life. There is no justification for such barbaric and cruel treatment of a fellow human being.
Gee, I hope thoseÂ raciestÂ xenophobes over at the State Dept. realize what a can of worms they are opening byÂ makingÂ a rashÂ statementÂ like this. IÂ meanÂ theyÂ aren’tÂ justÂ condemningÂ the act, they are “strongly” condemning the act.Â This mightÂ inciteÂ violenceÂ against the military.
