U.S. Strongly Condemns Stoning Of Woman

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 those raciest xenophobes over at the State Dept. realize what a can of worms they are opening by making a rash statement like this. I mean they aren’t just condemning the act, they are “strongly” condemning the act. This might incite violence against the military.
