The US government had nothing to do with a controversial Internet video about the Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) that triggered anti-American protests in Egypt, Libya and Yemen, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday.

โ€œThe United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message,โ€ she said at the start of talks with senior Moroccan officials.

โ€œTo us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose: to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage.โ€

Meanwhile, the White House deplored the content of the film that denigrates Islam, but maintained that free speech rights of America allow such films to air, the Associated Press reported on Thursday.

White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters Thursday that the Obama administration also condemns the violence in several Islamic countries the film has reportedly triggered. He says the attacks on US facilities in Egypt, Libya and Yemen are totally unjustified and should be squelched by local governments.

The attack in Benghazi, Libya, killed four US diplomats, including the ambassador.

Carney said America has a long tradition of free expression that puzzles some foreigners, who blame the government for not blocking the film from the Internet.

    Great words , The innocence of the US is great. When it comes to anti Islamic moves, they are helpless. Even if hundreds of Muslims have been massacred in Burma, we have not heard a single word form the US. A christen Girl has been arrested in Pakistan on blasmai, the entire US machinery is in motion to prevent Pakistan to punish her.
    And now, the hands of the US are tied with the constitutional rights of the US citizens. The definition of the Citizen is that the person should not be a Muslim otherwise the home land security has the right to forego all constitutional rights.
