Mitt the Mormon who was honest and true took over the Salt Lake City Olympics from the Mormons that weren't.

Couldn't the present White House reaction be construed as trying to defuse the situation, instead of escalating or exacerbating it?

No, it can only be construed as a cover for policy failure.

Al-Qaeda Says Attack On U.S. Consulate In Benghazi “Revenge” For Recent Drone Killing Of Abu Yahya Al-Libi…



So it wasn’t over the Mohammed movie?
Via AFP:AL-Qaeda said the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya was in revenge for the killing of the network’s number two Sheikh Abu Yahya al-Libi, SITE Intelligence Group reported.

“The killing of Sheikh Abu Yahya only increased the enthusiasm and determination of the sons of (Libyan independence hero) Omar al-Mokhtar to take revenge upon those who attack our Prophet,” said al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula said in a statement, quoted by the US-based monitoring group.

Al-Qaida’s Yemen-based offshoot did not claim direct responsibility for Tuesday’s attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans.

But it stressed that “the uprising of our people in Libya, Egypt and Yemen against America and its embassies is a sign to notify the United States that its war is not directed against groups and organisations … but against the Islamic nation that has rebelled against injustice.”

The statement comes four days after al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri issued a video eulogising Libi, his late deputy and propaganda chief who was killed in a drone strike in June.

Mohammed al-Megaryef, the head of Libya’s national assembly, said today that the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi was planned and “meticulously executed.”

Tuesday’s attack by armed men in the eastern city of Benghazi came amid a wave of protests in the Muslim world against a US-made amateur Internet film deemed insulting to the Prophet Mohammed.

Suspected Islamic militants fired on the consulate with rocket-propelled grenades and set it ablaze on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the United States by al-Qaida.

To say the movie had nothing to do with it is idiotic, when every single protest out there is referring to the film. Sheikh Abu Yahya died June 4, 2012. The attack on the consulate was probably planned out this far in advance, but all of the rioting is not because of Sheikh Abu Yahya's death.

What would Romney have done differently anyways? Like everything else he is scant on details. He'd just be different. Hmm, well he does employ Bush advisers in his campaign. He'd probably invade Iran.

The video has been out for months and the Islamists just happen to attack the embassies and consulates on 9/11 by coincidence.
