...and their view that the entire Islam uprising is because of some anti-muslim movie...or some preacher's sermon about radical muslims. So I postulated a different view on one thread, but we need to discuss this by itself.

I think it may be an attack on the USA...timed to coincide with our 9/11 observance...that has nothing to do with the above MSP reasoning.

Then you have the convoluted press in lock step accusing Romney for what he had to say about the administration genuflecting to the Islam radicals.

Look no further than the Democrats rubbing the Islam noses in how Obama killed Osama.

The sycophantic media is as much to blame about all this as anyone. Their lack of questioning the wussy comments by the Obama regime, but they have no problem attacking the real American view on how this should have been handled.

al-Qaida sees it a bit different;


Officials believe embassy attack in Libya may have been coordinated

WASHINGTON - Intelligence experts and U.S. government officials are starting to view the attack in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi as a coordinated attack.

Sources, including officials at the Pentagon and the State Department, are discussing the possibility that it was a planned operation, and some say several developments seem to support the possibility.

The incident does not appear to be a random mob scene, but rather an opportunity that militants seized, sources say. The attackers used a rocket-propelled grenade, a weapon not traditionally carried by protesters, but commonly used by terrorists.

The attack is believed to have come in two waves. The first wave got inside of the compound, and a second wave penetrated a secure location inside the building. This development raises questions about how the attackers knew the location of that secure facility, sources say.

On Sept. 11, al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri put out a video eulogizing Abu Yahya al-Libi, an Islamist terrorist and high-ranking al-Qaida member, who was killed in a drone attack in June. Sources have said they believe the Libyan incident might have been revenge for the death of al-Libi.

The embassy was housed in a local building that had been contracted temporarily. It was not an "Inman" compound, which is a building designed with certain security protocols, such as "standoff" distances between the public street and the actual facility.

Fred Burton, a former diplomatic security agent at the State Department, says it is the host country's responsibility to provide adequate security for all diplomats inside their country.

"One of the more problematic events that you can ever deal with is a large mob that overtakes a facility," Burton says. "You never see that in the U.S. simply because we have adequate police presence and can set up perimeters and keep rolling out the resources to counter that kind of event taking place."

Burton was one of the first diplomatic security agents to staff the diplomatic security service when it began. He was one of the first agents to go to Libya to investigate hijackings of planes and kidnappings of westerners in the early 1980s.

Burton says it is unclear where Stevens was killed.

"Was he killed coming back to the mission or was he trying to exit the mission? Was he trying to exit the safe house that's now into play? There are a lot of unknown factors here," he says.

"You may have had a situation that deteriorated so rapidly that a snap decision was made to load up the ambassador, and 'Let's get the hell out of dodge,' and they just vacated and ran into a situation where you had a perimeter set up and RPGs were fired into the limo as it was departing," he says.

The president has ratcheted up security at embassies worldwide because of the incident.

BTW--Chris Stevens was a human being. His family is devaststed. He wiil be missed.

Exactly, but Obama could care less about that. If Obama had a son...he would not look like Mr. Stevens...
