House Intel chair: Running ads in Pakistan against the Mohammed movie is a horrible idea

“I think it was a horrible idea,” said Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. “It gave credibility and it gave a permission slip to Al Qaeda, to Pakistani officials.”…

On Sunday, he suggested the administration had to run the ads after pinning the blame on the film.

“The administration gave credibility to this video that certainly nobody in America had seen and very few across the Middle East,” he said.
