So...what you're saying is, it wasnt a youtube video that was a result of the attack?

I'll just leave this here:

State Department statement on 9/11:

Quote:
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF STATE

STATEMENT BY SECRETARY CLINTON

Statement on the Attack in Benghazi

I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack.

This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences and pledged his government's full cooperation.

Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.

In light of the events of today, the United States government is working with partner countries around the world to protect our personnel, our missions, and American citizens worldwide.
And two weeks later at the United Nations, Obama stated:

Quote:
...And that is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, where a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. Now, I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity. It is an insult not only to Muslims, but to America as well.
So, the question is, why would they state it was a youtube video when it was clearly a terrorist attack? Why blame an American made youtube video for the attack? I dont understand why that would be the basis for their blame. Maybe someone could explain that.
