State Dept Spox: 'Hamas may be responsible, but they're not to blame'

Can anyone recall another instance outside of Israel in which the government of the United States went out of its way not to blame a terrorist organization for a terror attack?
Encouraging restraint from both the Israeli government— livid over the finding of the bodies of the missing on Monday, vowing to exact justice on the perpetrators— and from the Palestinian leadership, some of whom are calling the trial an Israeli conspiracy, and all of whom are bracing for reprisal, State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters that the US is intimate with intelligence on the case, in part since one of the dead teenagers was American.
"Many indications" suggest the murders constitute a terrorist attack, Harf said. "I'm not saying they're responsible," she said. "But they were involved."
Back in the early '70's I had this comedy political record by David Frye called "Richard Nixon, a Fantasy." (Okay, I probably still have it). There's a line in there where Nixon says "I take full responsibility for what happened. [long pause] But not the blame. People who take the blame lose their jobs. People who take responsibility don't."

Hamas may be responsible but they're not to blame?

Can't think of any other such instance? How about 40 years of Arafat's gang-the US always twisted itself (as did the Israeli lefties) into pretzels to avoid blaming them.

What a load of BS.

Hamas has even distributed an 18-page “Field Manual for Kidnapping” to its Qassam Brigades members. The manual explains in detail how kidnapping operations are conducted. It recommends that the kidnappers learn Hebrew and speak it fluently.

Yup they're not to blame.

After the tears, the burning anger will remain. Hamas understands only violence.
