President Obama in Norway, signs condolences book, an important event ignored by mass media. (7706 hits)


WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden extended their condolences in person Tuesday over the massacre in Oslo during an unannounced trip to the Norwegian ambassador's residence in Washington.

Obama wrote in a condolence book: "We are all heartbroken by the tragic loss of so many people particularly youth with the fullness of life ahead of them. No words can ease the sorrow but please know that the thoughts and prayers of all Americans are with the people of Norway, and that we will stand beside you every step of the way."

The ambassador was in Norway . After signing the book, Obama greeted some embassy staff and told them: "We're devastated ... but we will stand with you."

The bombing and shooting rampage Friday killed at least 76 people in Norway's capital, a city best-known more as the site where the Nobel Peace Prize is awarded. Obama has said the events are a reminder that the world has a stake in stopping acts of terrorism.

The man who confessed to the crimes claims to have acted to save Europe from what he says is Muslim colonization.
