Obama team reacts to Mumbai attacks

[cnn-photo-caption image= caption="Obama’s transition team reacted to the shootings in Mumbai."](CNN) - The Obama Transition team's chief national security spokesperson, Brooke Anderson, released a statement late Wednesday reacting to the attacks in Mumbai, India:

"President-Elect Obama strongly condemns today's terrorist attacks in Mumbai, and his thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the people of India. These coordinated attacks on innocent civilians demonstrate the grave and urgent threat of terrorism. The United States must continue to strengthen our partnerships with India and nations around the world to root out and destroy terrorist networks. We stand with the people of India, whose democracy will prove far more resilient than the hateful ideology that led to these attacks.”

    I think the "Griff" character is just spaced out or something. The best thing is just to ignore such statements that do not even make sense.

    Obama's bringing the troops and the war home.Doesn't everybody in the world love us now like the media and the Obama's campaign told us they would?We are going to be thrilled when the terrorist start blowing them selves and our families up at the mall,or Starbucks.Mean while, Russia is going to "test" us,great time to cut military spending,you know that 10 billion a month Obama has said he's going to stop spending in the Iraq war,so he can have his national health insurance he's promised for your vote.

    Most successful people know ,you have to deal from power,for some unknown reason ,liberals don't understand this,and we're going to be in bigger trouble soon.

    I think you are truly a peace maker Johnny C. Great post and you show respect and courtesy toward your follow men. I thin it is refreshing to find people like with a paused mind state; keep up the good work.

    In fact some of you cannot wait for an attack on the United States so you turn the blame to Obama just because he is black. We started to fight a war terror that we did not finish; we have insulted countries that were not in agreement with us and we attach Iraq on false pretense, tell me did we find any weapon as the Bush administration claimed; if so were is it? I think that Obama is going to do a great job, shut all you who are racist and refuse to respect another human just because of his skin color. You know who you are…

    In addition the newly elected administration start working before getting to the white house and not after; of course a lot of you are so much blinded by racism that you failed to see this nor to give him some credit for his earnest efforts.

    Obama is not even in office yet, so why dont you let Bush do his job. When attacks happen after Jan 20 then I'll expect Obama to handle them, until then it's still the responsibility if your belved George W. Bush.

    LOL @ conservatives blaming this on Obama, like attacks on Americans havent been happening the past 8 years. You act like the US has been ay peace since 2000...get over yourselves.
