Grovelling with Gadhafi -

At first, State refused to back down and said that "the call for jihad against any country or person could cause damage and this is not something that the United States does not take lightly." The principled stand lasted less than two weeks, before Mr. Crowley ate his crow for speaking the truth about a silly if ruthless dictator in north Africa.

As a comment pointed out the State Department's use of English is probably no better than Gadhafi's. After factoring out all the "not"s, what he said was that the US does take these matters lightly.
