Gee, Daniel. Ya think?
No sane person thinks that the video “caused” the rioting and deaths. All persons with a functioning brain know that the administration and the jihadis think alike and have both claimed that the video “caused” the violence.
The jihadis hate us and will always hate us, no matter how low obama bows down.
"the notion that we can control the flow of information is obsolete" ...
....really reflects 0bama's true desire that the flow of information was ACTUALLY CONTROLLABLE, and that he would like to do the controlling. The First Amendment is too easily aided by electronics these days, and 0bama is chagrinned.
"There is no speech that justifies mindless violence"...
....The violence of Muslims against Free Speech is hardly mindless. Indeed, it is focused like a laser against Freedom. Freedom is anathema to Muslims, for whom subservience by all to their "religion" is the highest goal. 0bama's inability to even notice the extremely MINDFUL violence shows he is unwilling to acknowledge the nature of our enemy. Indeed, it suggests that as a matter of obfuscation ("taqqia"?) 0bama is in complete agreement with undermining Freedom in favor of subservience to Islam.

“There is more to the story of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula than what we are told by the media. Court documents reveal that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of the movie Innocence of Muslims, partnered in a scheme with Eiad Salameh, my first cousin, a Palestinian Muslim from Beit Sahour in the Palestinian district of Bethlehem.
To prove my claim, I revealed Eiad Salameh long before this whole fiasco eruptedin 2008 and the first real reportage of Eiad and Nakoula was revealed on September 14th, 2012.
Now do I have your attention?..............”
IF this is true, then the whole video was made to inflame and outrage Muslims and blame Coptic Christians... What did Obama and Clinton know and when did they know it? The both were first in line to call the world's attention to this video. Few can afford that kind of advertising.
On any given day, there are many videos on youtube that insult Jews, Christians and Muslims. To say this particular video was a spark of murder just makes no sense.
America should put copyright piracy to good use. A lot of the music and video files put on pirate websites for download should be corrupted with anti-Muslim and anti-Mohammed audio and video.
And we should do the same to radical Islamic audio and video. Halfway through, edit in stuff that will make Muslims seethe. Some speech by a radical Imam, and halfway through somebody does a cut and paste to make him sound like he is attacking Islam and Mohammed.
It could be fun. Like getting some speech by a radical Mufti, and giving it subtitles from rap videos.
The best defense...
>> the conflict over values will continue to heat up.
Good to restate the obvious.
