ROS sent us a link today in regards to the First Lady and john Kerry rewarding anti-Semite and anti-American Samira Ibrahim with an “International Women of Courage Award” along with nine others. Well apparently Ibrahim is famous for this quote on Twitter; “Today is the anniversary of 9/11. May every year come with America burning.” I guess she felt bad about the Tweet because she deleted it, but not before someone screen shot the thing.
Well, after the news about her hateful Tweets hit the internet, she told the world that her Twitter account had been hacked;
The honoree, Samira Ibrahim, asserts that her Twitter account was hacked even though the tweets in question appeared over a period of months and were never deleted.
Can anyone be stupid enough to buy that excuse?
According to State Department reporter Nicole Gaouette, the answer to that question is “Yes.”
Yes, really. “State officials tell me they’ve looked at 1000s of her tweets & believe her account was hacked,” she tweeted.
I guess being hacked is now the last refuge of scoundrels.
Anyway, I guess the White House had second thought about the award, perhaps she wasn’t quite as courageous as folks thought. But, according to Twitchy, her name has been removed from the list of honorees.
It’s too bad that the staff at the State Department can’t do their own research on their awardees and have to rely on a bunch of bloggers to vet their awards system for them.
