    Gunfire broke out Wednesday in an attack at the offices of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, leaving 12 dead, including four prominent cartoonists.

    Known for its caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad, as well as critical depictions of Catholics, Jews and French politicians, the magazine regularly stirred controversy.

    In 2011, headlined by a cartoon reading "100 lashes if you don't die of laughter," an issue invited Muhammad to be a "guest editor" for the weekly. The Charlie Hebdo offices were firebombed following its publication.

    Flashback: WH Condemned Judgement of ‘Deeply Offensive’ Charlie Hebdo

    by Pam Key
    7 Jan 2015


    On September 19, 2012 at the White House daily press briefing then press secretary Jay Carney condemned the judgement of Charlie Hebdo magazine for publishing “deeply offensive,” anti-Islamic cartoons.

    Partial transcript as follows:

    REPORTER: The French government has decided to temporarily close their embassies and schools in several Muslim countries after a satirical weekly, Charlie Hebdo, that published cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad. Is the White House concerned that those cartoons might further fan the flames in the region?

    CARNEY: Well, we are aware that a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad, and obviously, we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this. We know that these images will be deeply offensive to many and have the potential to be inflammatory. But we’ve spoken repeatedly about the importance of upholding the freedom of expression that is enshrined in our Constitution.

    In other words, we don’t question the right of something like this to be published; we just question the judgment behind the decision to publish it. And I think that that’s our view about the video that was produced in this country and has caused so much offense in the Muslim world.

    Now, it has to be said, and I’ll say it again, that no matter how offensive something like this is, it is not in any way justification for violence — not in any way justification for violence. Now, we have been staying in close touch with the French government as well as other governments around the world, and we appreciate the statements of support by French government officials over the past week, denouncing the violence against Americans and our diplomatic missions overseas.

    When you are finished laughing your ass off, look up who the WH press secretary officially speaks for! It is the voice of the President, or do you think it's just some random guy speaking for himself? :facepalm:

    And what the fuck is it the concern for the U.S.A. of a FRENCH publication anyways?

    Just today, the asshole press secretary called it a act of violence on several TV live interviews before finally calling it an act of terror after every news organization and government had labeled it terror. But later Obumba himself still couldn't condemn the Islamist terrorists.

    You're right! CLASSIC!

    Sure was an organized operation, those shootings. Makes me wonder if it wasn't a false flag event, keep the hate ratcheted up. Now who would benefit from a such a thing?

    Actually got to have a drink and a smoke with Hitch at the University of Notre Dame. He was debating Dnesh DSousa.
    Met him at a bar after.
