Should American officials apologize for U.S. Marines who urinate on dead Taliban fighters?
"Oh gosh, yes," Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan told Martha Raddatz in response to a question that also included a question about apologizing for burning Korans.
Egypt is a different story, he argued, again drawing attention to a controversial statement issued by the U.S. embassy in Cairo last month calling for restraint after a video depicting Islam as a barbaric religion went viral, triggering violent anti-American protests across
the Middle East.
The Republican campaign has indicated that government officials shouldn't be in the business of apologizing on behalf of wayward individual citizens who do things offensive to the Muslim world. After all, Mitt Romney titled his book "No Apology."
