White House Asks YouTube To ‘Review’ Anti-Muslim Movie

Sep 14, 2012 7:57pm

The Obama administration has asked YouTube to review its posting of the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims,” which has provoked violent protests across the Middle East.

“We reached out to YouTube to call the video to their attention and ask them to review whether it violates their terms of use,” said White House Press Secretary Jay Carney.

Carney was adamant today that the Obama administration will not apologize for the video.

“We have made clear that we find it offensive and reprehensible and disgusting,” Carney told reporters at the daily White House news briefing. “We have denounced it. We have said we find it offensive and reprehensible, but we will not — you know, we cannot and will not squelch freedom of expression in this country.”

The White House has not asked YouTube to take down the video, simply to review it.
