So none of this actually happened?

http://mashable.com/2012/09/13/youtube-protests-spread/

Quote:
Unrest sparked by a YouTube video, considered derogatory of Islam and the Prophet Mohammad, spread to Yemen Thursday, leading hundreds of demonstrators to storm the U.S. embassy.

Protesters in Sana, Yemen's capital, reportedly climbed the embassy's perimeter wall, set fire to a building compound and began attempting to loot equipment, before being dispersed by security forces. Some demonstrators were injured in the fracas. At this time, there are no reports of American casualties.

Yemen's president has since apologized to President Obama for the assault and called for a full investigation into the event.

The State Department seemed to anticipate the unrest, as the embassy's website warned visitors of the possibility of protests a day before the demonstrations began.

The details of the protest come from the New York Times, which also reported that approximately 500 protesters attempted to swarm the Swiss Embassy in Iran, through which the U.S. conducts its diplomatic affairs, since there's no U.S. embassy in Iran. Iranian police kept those protesters away from the embassy.

New protests related to the film, titled "Innocence of Muslims," have also been reported in Morocco, Sudan and Tunisia near respective American diplomatic posts.

SEE ALSO: The Strange Details of the YouTube Clip Sparking Mideast Protests
According to the New York Times, the protests spread after Muslim cleric and former mentor to Osama bin Laden Abdul Majid al-Zandani instructed his followers to copy previous protests at the American embassy in Cario and an American consolate in Benghazi, Libya.

Meanwhile, demonstrators returned to the American Embassy in Cairo for the third consecutive day. Egyptian police eventually fired tear gas in an effort to disperse the crowd. Egyptian state media later reported 13 demonstrators were injured.

The White House issued a statement early Thursday expressing disapproval at the way the Cairo protests had initially been handled by the recently-elected president of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi. In the letter, the Obama administration "underscored the importance of Egypt following through on its commitment to cooperate with the U.S. in securing American diplomatic facilities and personnel.”

Morsi on Thursday told the Egyptian public in a televised address that while peaceful demonstrations are acceptable, attacks on diplomatic posts are not. However, he also cautioned against insulting Islam and the Prophet Mohammad.

The Tuesday demonstrations at the American consolate in Benghazi, Libya was used as cover for a long-planned attack on the compound, according to CNN. That assault took the lives of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, three of his staff and several others.

Strange details about the film trailer, which was posted months ago but caused an international uproar only recently after it was translated to Arabic and broadcast by local media, are beginning to emerge. The creator of the film was previously known as "Sam Bacile," a name now believed to be a pseudonym. The quality of the film has also been called into question, while the actors involved with the production claimed they were duped into making a film very different from the initial script.

UPDATE: Law enforcement officials told the Associated Press Thursday morning that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is the creator of the film.

YouTube has removed the clip in Libya and Egypt, while some countries, including Afghanistan, have reportedly taken steps to block access to YouTube entirely.

I guess it doesn't shock me that there are enough idiots to be so distracted on this issue. So focuses on some vdo, or if there was a riot, or blah blah blah. Pull your head out of yer ass. Fact, shit was stirring up and Obama/Clinton ignored. Fact, shit got messy and Obama/Clinton turned a blind eye, and then covered it up.

Here's what your timeline doesn't show.
When the Ambassador was taken and drug through the street they were asking for help. People were dying. We had people ready to respond, and were not allowed to. Our Ambassador was not only beheaded, but also sodomized with a bayonet. All while Obama and Clinton were concerned about the election.

So for all the morons that just can't get off the vdo thing, cleanse your brain of your koolaide and see what is really trying to be covered up. It's all starting with lies, to cover up the real horror of this ordeal.

Every report I've read says he died from the smoke and suffered no other trauma.

Quote:
Very shortly after Mr. Stevens was seen carried out of the window, he arrived at Benghazi’s main hospital, brought by a group of Libyan civilians, according to Ziad Abu Zeid, a doctor there. In a separate interview he said that the civilians did not seem to know that the American they were helping was the ambassador, a well-known and popular figure locally but now covered in dark soot. Dr. Abu Zaid said that Mr. Stevens was dressed and did not suffer any trauma, aside from the smoke inhalation. Because of the soot covering his face, the doctor said, he also initially failed to recognize Mr. Stevens. He said he eventually did so from photographs posted by admiring residents on Facebook.

But I'm sure someone has a source on what really happened.

I was just about to post that


Now we know why the press has started reporting more on Benghazi and interrogating Jay Carney any chance they get. Quickest way to turn the media against you is to go after reporters and their sources. Bad times ahead for the Obama Administration. They just burned their #1 supporters and the people who have been covering his ass for years.

Justice Department secretly obtained AP telephone records
http://www.latimes.com/news/politics...,1712953.story

Quote:
Gary B. Pruitt, president and chief executive of the AP, said in a letter to Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. that federal prosecutors under the direction of Washington prosecutor Ronald C. Machen Jr. obtained records covering a two-month period in early 2012 that not only included the wire service’s headquarters but also bureaus in New York; Hartford, Conn.; Washington and the House of Representatives. It also included cellphones and home phones of the wire services’ journalists.

“There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications of The Associated Press and its reporters,” Pruitt warned Holder. Saying the records “potentially reveal” discussions with “confidential sources,” he added that the material also would have provided federal law enforcement officials with private newsgathering information “that the government has no right to know.”

Machen’s office declined to discuss specifics about the matter, except to indicate in a short statement that prosecutors sought the telephone records and other material after first trying to obtain the documents through “alternative means.”

We need more people with the balls to speak out, even if it is what some would say politically incorrect.
We are creating a society of sissys that are thinned skinned and can't handle the truth.
