That's our Ambassador to Libya. They say he and others were killed in a rocket attack.
My prayers go out for Ambassador Stevens and his family.
So sad. This is the Islamist violence caused by a 14 minute segment of a film shown on You Tube.
A 14-minute clip of the film, “The Innocence of Islam,” aired on YouTube shows a fictional attack by Muslims on a Christian family followed by an account of the origins of Islam depicting the Prophet Mohammed as a womanizer. The Associated Press said the film was made by an Israeli living in California, and promoted by an Egyptian Christian also based in the U.S.Also in Egypt:
The United States Embassy was attacked and taken over by Islamists.
Does this look familiar? Who do these people look up to? They are historically anti-semitic, JUST LIKE THE OCCUPY WALL STREET ANARCHISTS.
from American Thinker:
It should be noted that the Obama administration only condemned this statement after it became controversial -- a clear sign that they probably agreed with it, until they didn't.Politico:
The Obama administration is disavowing a statement from its own Cairo embassy that seemed to apologize for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
"The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government," an administration official told POLITICO.
The U.S. embassy in Cairo put out a statement early Tuesday that apologized for an anti-Muslim film being circulated by an Israeli-American real estate developer.
"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims - as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions," the embassy said in a statement published online.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the film depicts the Muslim prophet Muhammed as a "womanizer, pedophile and fraud" - a depiction bound to offend many Muslims.
The embassy came under widespread criticism for failing to defend free speech in the face of threats of violence. Egyptian protesters rioted anyway, breaching the embassy walls and tearing down the American flag.
"Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.The Obama administration is running around apologizing for people who are using their freedom of speech. Hillary Clinton is the first to stand up to defend Islam. Where are the apologies to Christians and Jews being slaughtered around the world for their beliefs?
In this insane world, the conservatives saw it coming. While all the "Liberals and Rinos were looking for new found freedom, anyone with a brain and a memory could see what was really going down.
We are now dealing with a nuclear Iran, which failed President Jimmy Carter gave up decades ago. I remember when we were all viewing the fall of the Shaw of Iran through the Hope and Change glasses.
How many decades will we have to see the incompetence of Barack Obama rear its ugly head because of his support of the Radical terrorist Muslim Brotherhood and his anti-Israel policies?
