State Department kisses Gadhafi's butt

This is a new low for the Obama administration and the US State Department (Hat Tip: Fausta).
The US state department has apologised for comments made about Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi’s call for jihad against Switzerland.

Department spokesman PJ Crowley, who made the dismissive comments, said they did not reflect US policy and were not intended to offend.

Col Gaddafi had criticised a Swiss vote against the building of minarets and urged Muslims to boycott the country.

Mr Crowley described it as “lots of words, not necessarily a lot of sense.”

Libya and Switzerland are embroiled in a long-running diplomatic row.


“I regret that my comments have become an obstacle to further progress in our bilateral relationship,” Mr Crowley said.
What could go wrong?

It's difficult to say this is a "new low".

To me I don't think they can sink any lower so it's more of a standard low.

How long do some people have to dig to be acknowledged that they have reached the bottom?
