    Instead of apologizing to the protesters yesterday, perhaps advising them that any breach of our emabassy walls would result in their immediate death would have been a better strategy.

    I'm guessing that the US Security forces on site had orders to stand down and not protect themselves....

    Obama needs to simply resign.  He is over his head.

    So "Coptic Christians" as producer of the video, which I read much earlier in the day, appears to be wrong.

    Instead it was an American sshole trying to deliberately incite violence - nevermind that violence is inexcusable; it's shaking a bee's nest and then complaining that the bees shouldn't be stinging you because that's mean - succeeded, and then Jones/Romney want to blame Obama for it. AND BDC CONSERVATIVES FOLLOW SUIT.

    Amazing. Use any tragedy, if it helps you rage at Democrats. Disgusting.



    So you think the film makers are partly to balme that they should not do any thing that would "cause" these people to kill??

    Well we could just all convert and practice islam that would make them happy!
    Or we could walk around on egg shells and review every piece of art of entertainment for needed censorship before allow it to go and offend this group!!

    You are dangerously confused along with this admin!!

    What specific actions should America take?

    Yes it is a disgrace. Yes it is something to be infuriated about. Yes posting pictures of it helps stoke self-righteous wrath.

    But you're shamefully using it to slam Obama.

    So, what specific actions should Obama take now?

    What specific actions could Obama have taken, that would have prevented the Coptic Christians from releasing the mohammed-depicting video in order to incite violence such as this? 

    Lay 'em out, otherwise you and the rest of the conservatives goind wild are no better than Alex Jones raping every tragedy for money. Well, worse, because you aren't even making money with the outrage. Just scoring internets political points. Beyond shameful

     The actions should have started months ago and by standing up and telling the world what would be acceptable and what would not. We did nothing!

    The marines should have been there weeks ago.

    Re: Cairo, Egypt protesters storm US embassy, rip down US flag and replace it with Islamic flag!

    The U.S. State Department, and even its besieged embassy staff in Cairo, is receiving a barrage of criticism because of statements like this:

    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. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others

    The criticism is well-deserved. As James Joyner succinctlyput it,

    In point of fact, making a movie commenting on the sexual proclivities of someone who died some fourteen hundred years ago in no way constitutes "incitement" under any meaningful use of the term.

    I would add that my government has no business giving a whirl about "hurt[ing] the religious beliefs of others" (a standard both elastic and asymmetrical, virtually begging for a heckler's veto) and that there is no "universal right of free speech," at least in practice (as opposed to the philosophical principle, which I wholeheartedly endorse).

    The fact is that the First Amendment, no matter how embattled, protects a range of expression unthinkable even in Western Europe. Because of that unique position, and because the U.S. seems doomed to play an outsized diplomatic and military role in the tumultuous Muslim world, it behooves the State Department to constantly explain the vast differences between state-sanctioned and legally protected speech in the so-called Land of the Free. If the U.S. government really was in the business of "firmly reject[ing]" private free-speech acts that "hurt the religious beliefs of others" there would be no time left over for doing anything else.

    It's really not that hard. The values in that film (or "film") are not our values; our government respects religion, religious expression, and religious pluralism (including and especially that of Muslims, even in the wake of murderous Muslim-led attacks on American soil); and we are not in the business of approving or (for the most part) regulating the private speech of our citizens. To the extent that that message is not sufficient for rioters, the problem is theirs.

    Some liberal Tweeters this morning are pointing out that, hey,the Bush administration condemned the Mohammed cartoons, too!, but this mostly goes to illustrate how bipartisan cravenness can be. We know that this issue will keep coming up; maybe it's about time the American government, and the rest of us, develop a more American response.

    Obama's not at fault?  Are you going to blame Bush for this as well?

     

    Funny how Obama is not responsible for anything, yet he is so essential to our future.

    So it was a crazy preacher and a moviemaker who stormed our embassies or consulates, desecrated our flag, and murdered our citizens ?

    Hmm, I thought they looked more like typical leftist Islamic trash from my viewpoint. Or more occupy wall street types.

    Good thing we Christians are so tolerant; if we were like Libyans or Egyptians some museums in New York City would be smoking holes in the ground......which is exactly what Benghazi SHOULD BE about now.

    You are the trash.

    Racism and bigotry often leads to horrible consequences.  Apparently, Mr. Bacile and Pastor Jones have forgotten "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Instead, they mock, they demean, they taunt, while others are putting their very lives on the line to bring some semblance of peace and democracy to a long-troubled area of the world. Bacile and Jones are cowards, and good Americans had to pay for that with their lives.

    So, the well thought out position of the islamic extremists is:

     

    "don't say anything we find offensive or we wil kill you"

     

    Nice people, the friends of jedinasnarky, radical islamists.

    Obama and his leftist crowd thought that they would be beloved by the islamists they put in control of Egypt and Libya.

    So stupid and so incompetant.

    All the apologies, all the bowing and butt kissing in the middle east throwing the jews under the bus.

    Where did it get the community organizer and the USA?

    Just like his mentor Jimmy Carter.

    In a big mess that will cost him his presidency.
