Pakistani TV shows US ads condemning anti-Islam film

Obama is siding with the howling Muslim hordes instead standing up for American against the latest Muslim outrage over an anti-Islam video.  He's spending taxpayer money to promote a State Department film condemning an American made anti-Islam video.

Pakistani TV shows US ads condemning anti-Islam film

Pakistani TV channels are airing an advert showing news clips of US President Barack Obama condemning an anti-Islam film made in the US.

The advert also features a statement from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a news conference rejecting the amateur film's message.

Unrest over the film, Innocence of Muslims, has claimed several lives.

Also on Thursday, a protest against the film outside the US embassy which had turned violent ended peacefully.

The adverts seek to emphasise the message reiterated by US officials throughout the crisis: that the "disgusting" film was not made by the US government, but that there is never any justification for violence.

The embassy described the advert as a "public service announcement" and repeated the statements from Mr Obama and Ms Clinton on its Twitter feed.

A caption on the advert, which ends with the seal of the US embassy in Islamabad, reads "Paid Content", the Associated Press reports.

State department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland confirmed the US spent $70,000 (£43,220) to air the clip on seven Pakistani TV stations.
