of us enough who is in hiding in america but is going to church can reports his amateur film was only a catalyst for a fury that has deeper. the white house keeps saying it was just the anti islamic video that calls the muslims wrath across the world this is not a case of. protests to rectify united states writ large or a us policy in this is in response to a video that is offensive but that's a claim no one is buying the administration wants us to believe it's not the administration's policies that have generated this behavior it's this one idiotic piece of so-called film which is what out there for two months well it is you know you stupid film that nobody's seen causes people to assassinate ambassadors to storm the embassy and the question the us media keep asking why do so many millions of hate the usa but the answers they're getting are the answers very few in the us

saakashvili came as a stirring thought several prison officials are now under a criminal investigation and all jail staff have been temporarily substituted with police officers but for many georgians it's too little too late in a country with a population half the size of paris twenty five thousand inmates is enough to affect nearly everything in one way or another by those relatives friends or neighbors and as the nation prepares to vote for a new parliament a look toward the damage to georgia's leaders may be too much for their reputation to be rescued in time. of r t. ga. r.t. talks with legendary bit of card say the former staff member of the infamous georgian president who leaked the shocking video you can watch a full interview with him next hour right now here's a preview. of georgia's interior minister should defeat he was
