CAIRO An unprecedented wave of anti-American violence swept across Africa, Asia and the Middle East on Friday as protesters, angered by an amateurish video that mocks the founder of Islam, stormed and scorched U.S. embassies in Tunisia and Sudan, ransacked a German embassy in Sudan, and set a fast-food restaurant ablaze in Lebanon.

Peace through weakness has such a successful track record... What could go wrong...

I have this mental picture of Jay Carney : he’s standing amid a mob of grenande-throwing rocket launcher-toting protesters screeching “Death to America” and waving al Qaeda flags while he has his fingers jammed in his ears and his eyes are shut and he’s shouting “Nannanananananna I cant HEAR you! I can’t hear a darn thing! nanda ! Zilch! Nnananananannannal I can’t HEAR you!...nnananna.....”

Yeah, it’s all because of a YouTube clip. Yeah, that’s the ticket.

I would add to your picture of Jay Carney.. he’s screaming: “Look! I’m giving the video a thumbs down! Don’t kill me!”

Fascinating. a video few if any of the protesters had seen was the subject of an undated embassy cable that allegedly warned Washington that the video was getting "more" chatter.

This appears to be a straw man to divert attention from the real warnings that were relayed that had nothing to do with this video but with Zawahiri's two videos which specified Benghazi in Libya, which had already been a target of a bombing not long before. And the warning from the Egyptian government that didn't have to do with the video either. and the extra caution due because after all the anniversary of 911 was coming up.

So we're supposed to believe that because this straw man cable wasn't specific enough that there was no reason for the admin to take much to heart or prepare, as if it's the only warning sent out. Nevermind the Zawahiri/Adam Gadahn videos.

Back in July Egyptians were pelting Hillary Clinton’s motorcade with shoes... and it wasn’t because of a movie trailer.

I saw Pamela Geller on Fox this morning. She stated that Obama has purposely engaged in this and has caused this chaos and the deaths at the embassy. Well the two bozos were shocked at what she said and called her out. This is the truth and we all know this. She stuck to her guns. Lover her!

Nearby, Mustafa Amin, 26, an unemployed teaching school graduate, proposed an international law “that would criminalize any assault on the prophet. And it should be under the supervision of the United Nations.”

And 3 out of 4 of liberals would support him on this for the simple reason that it would piss off Christians.
