this is one of those events that in two to three weeks we will have much better information

a film? of some sort exist, if only on YouTube, there are dozens of actors,


I also have heard reports that it was coordinated for 911, with an Al-Qaeda group behind it to avenge Bin Laden, that the protests were a cover for getting into the embassies.

If Dick Cheney were still VP, there would be irrefutable proof that Iran was behind it and congress would be approving an attack on Iran

who gains??? always the best question. One answer rises, Mossad did this.

One commenter on IBT suggested that since Bacile said he was relatives in Egypt, he might be a disgruntled Egyptian.

That would mean if he's actually Muslim, he no longer supports the religion. But if he's Coptic Christian, he's going to put that group into a lot of turmoil.

ImBecile - I like that, MrsS.

ETA: Just read on the HuffPo that the movie was promoted by an anti-Muslim Egyptian Christian in the U.S. His name is Morris Sadek.

if another group were depicted the way Muslims are depicted in this -- it's not much different than, say, white people in blackface eating watermelon and dancing -- there would most assuredly be protests of some sort, if the film became known. heck, Christians protested "Last Temptation of Christ." protesting is legitimate.

this "rage" and the murder of 4 people is not.
Exactly.

Agreed that people have the right to say what they wish, and I certainly agree that no religion should be immune from criticism.

But I do also think there are ways to go about making said criticism without coming off like an obnoxious jerk. And I agree that you can say what you please, but you also must prepare to deal with the response to what you say. If you can dish it out, you should be able to take it.

And since it seems this film is nothing more than a horrible excuse to get people all riled up and angry about something, that is pretty pathetic and awful and all involved are idiots. Things are already tense enough, we really don't need people like this making things worse.

As for the ambassador, very sorry to hear of his death. So senseless. My condolances to his family.

I'm watching Hannity right now for god knows what reason, and it's basically like watching Pravda.

He's going to Ann Colter for comment. They are conflating the embassy statement released before the event with Obama.

Already, 3 mentions of Neville Chamberlin.

Honestly. How does a channel like this exist in the developed world?

A journalist friend and I were talking about how terrible their graphics are, too. Easily the worst of the major news networks. CNN, for all its faults, has a much better presentation style.

It's like a drag show. I haven't watched Fox for any more than 2 monies straight in years.

It's shocking.

I still remember sitting in a motel room three years ago and hearing Glenn Beck, with a shockingly small amount of irony, predict rape and pillaging because Obama was elected.

Unless he was saying there would be rape and pillaging because Obama was too much like the GOP in dealing with Wall Street, then I don't think your point holds up very well.

I wish I knew Arabic and could photograph myself holding a similar sign saying "this video is an embarrassment and does not represent America. We apologize."

Romney's conduct in the last day has been utterly disgraceful.

He certainly managed to make himself look distinctly un-presidential.
