I think people are getting confused.

9/11 in Libya had nothing to do with the video, but, the film did inspire international outrage. Especially, in Egypt, but also around the world.

Yes, people are idiots for getting upset and protesting a film, but you just can’t pretend the protests never happened.

I think you are confused. No one pretends that the idiots do not riot -we simply give the riots no legitimacy. There is NO excuse to perpetrate such evil as that which the Islamists do in the name of their perverted religion.

This is correct. Especially after U.S. Government served as the enabler to make sure the world knew about it.

Yankee Reb, we live in a world of fiction which the Nazis
and Communists, Alice in Wonderland (”whatever I say three times is true”) and the great George Orwell could only dream about. The objective truth about ANYTHING has receded into the mists deep within the forest, and gets harder and harder to locate, and the world is full of even MORE people who don’t have the tools or inclination to venture into the forest.The reason the NYT continues to push the lie of the video is clear to me—they are pushing the same lie they helped “validate” 10 weeks ago precisely BECAUSE the Administration has moved past it.In a sense the Old Gray Lady
considers herself to have more “face” to lose even than the Administration if she can’t fess us to the “changing realities” of this Bemghazi affair.

...arrest for violating his supervised release on a fraud conviction

Is practicing his freedom of speech a violation of that supervised release?
