No, the facts are that they distract and obfuscate the fact that Al Queda is continuing to organize and execute attacks and so far, they always characterize it as an isolated incident and/or, in the case of the embassy attack, and understandable response to something that "we" did. Lying about the seriousness is the default. they knew this was not about the video, just like they lied about the guy with the car bomb in Times Square being an isolated individual, and they lied about the underpants bomber the same way. Even with the bin Laden raid, the story was heavily massaged in the initial characterization of what happened. There is really no reason to believe the statements coming out of the White House on anything related to al Queda or the Muslim brotherhood spring or anything else related to the war-on-that-which-we-can't-mention
