An anti-American sentiment was stirred up among a portion of the Middle East's population by rabble-rousers reporting that the anti-Muslim film posted to youtube was a (US) state sponsored video. That was the initial cause of the outrage and it seems that various militias, and possibly al-Qaeda, channeled that outrage into an attack on our embassy. Now, the deeper cause of the outrage is the economic strife in that region, itself caused by massively surging food prices and the recent political instability, combined with the higher volatility and tendency towards violence that Muslims have shown to have.

Yeah, like the president ISN'T going to "strongly condemn" an attack against one of our foreign facilities?

To make light of it, Stewart's bit was funny but spot on.

This seems to not play well for the current administration.

so i'm wondering specifically with all that's come to light recently if all you all that support he president have changed your opinion about barack?
1. live video feed to the situation room in the WH of the battle as its happening
2. Sec of Defense Panetta visiting the WH during the battle
3. Claims of responsibility by al-qaeda affiliated group for the attack, during the attack
4. CIA requesting aid during the fight, three times
5. CIA being told to stand down, three times
6. CIA "painting" the mortar with laser that's being used to shell the ambassador's house, and the c131 gunship not being allowed to fire, even though its designed specifically for that type of situation. this mortar later kills the CIA operative by shelling the CIA safe house.
7. the President now refusing to answer questions from reporters any longer about the firefight

does anyone care that the media could care less as it's obama, but if it were bill clinton they'd be all over his ass with questions?
does anyone care the pres has been misleading all of us on this?

Penetta's press conference stating that the CIA never refused the requests. Seams to me like that was a punch back at the Obama camp after joe's "We didn't know" remark during the debate.

The requests were denied, but by who?

I can not imagine the President wasn't told what was going on all night long and went to bed totally ignorant of what had happened. Is that what's being suggested?
