State Department spends $70K to run "please don't attack us" ads in Pakistan

Incredible.

We're spending money on ads in Urdu to tell people that the US didn't make the Mohammed soft-core porn/spoof video, apparently so the people there won't get mad and attack us:
“Let me state very clearly, the United States has absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its contents,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says in the video, which also features spots of Obama saying that the US respects all faiths.
Not that the fact that we send in drones that indiscriminately kill civilian bystanders could have had anything to do with them being pissed off at us before, huh?
