Apparently, ditto the Obama administration. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now condemning Israel for defending itself against an act of war caught on video. Said Clinton:
"The United States supports the Security Council's condemnation of the acts leading to this tragedy."Here is an excerpt from the U.N. Security Council's statement via BBC:
The Security Council deeply regrets the loss of life and injuries resulting from the use of force during the Israeli military operation in international waters against the convoy sailing to Gaza. The Council, in this context, condemns those acts which resulted in the loss of at least ten civilians and many wounded, and expresses its condolences to their families.Regrets the loss of life and injuries resulting from the use of force during the Israeli military operation?
Israel has a blockade set up for a reason. It was the thugs on the vessel from Turkey who attempted to break through that blockade and subsequently beat and stabbed the Israeli commandos who were doing their jobs. Oh, they also threw grenades.
