Both are playing stupid word games - see for yourself
. What is said as of the 14th - since prior emails were not released - is that they believe the attack was inspired by the Cairo riots. The video is not mentioned, but everyone knows the Cairo riots were at least partly in response to it. But the documents simply state that the Cairo riots were a believed inspiration; whether rioting to attack the US in general, rioting just to riot, or rioting over the video itself - is not specified. But each article took the absolute extreme position, in opposite directions.
Interesting to see that they've had warnings since April and even warned on the 10th of a call to riot / attack via social media. Considering this is what has been released, I'd LOVE to know what hasn't.
