Protesters storm U.S. Embassy in Cairo

http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/11/world/...html?hpt=hp_t1

I suppose it's a good thing that "it doesn't have to be a good thing for us"....

Cairo (CNN) -- Angry protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and hauled down the American flag, replacing it with a black standard with Islamic emblems, apparently in protest of the production of a film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed.

The incident prompted a volley of warning shots to be fired as a large crowd gathered outside, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.

The replacement flag read, "There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger."

Others expressed more general grievances about U.S. policy, chanting anti-American slogans and holding up bits of a shredded American flag to television camera crews in front of the embassy.

An embassy operator told CNN that the facility had been cleared of diplomatic personnel earlier Tuesday, ahead of the apparent threat, while Egyptian riot police were called to help secure the area.

The U.S. Embassy said in a statement Tuesday that it "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions."

"Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy," the statement said. "We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

The incident occurred on the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania, as crowds gathered in somber remembrance of the nearly 3,000 people killed that day.

It is not clear which film upset the protesters in Cairo.

In 2008, an anti-Muslim and anti-immigration parliamentarian from The Netherlands sparked international outcry when he produced a film that portrayed Islam as a violent religion.

Geert Wilders' film "Fitna," which he released online, featured images of terrorist acts superimposed over verses from the Quran.

Certainly not to the same degree as Egypt, but it's true that Khadafy had made significant moves in our direction during the years preceding the Arab Spring.

Big diff.

Also, CNN is now quoting a US source in saying that this was a targeted terrorist attack that used the protesters as cover.
Good lord, Bush didn't start two wars against Muslim countries. In both cases, we were provoked by acts of war.

For Gods Sake this asswipe has no spine.


For the record, this apparently came out before the attacks. But hey, keep clinging to "evidence" that the President apologizes for America.

I thought the apology came out after the Egyptian attack, but before the Libyan one. I could be wrong though.

Maybe. Or maybe intelligence got word of a possible riot. They do monitor Twitter and social media, you know.

Nope, it came out before everything.

The diplomats in Egypt were getting nervous about a potential riot, and basically fearing for their own lives, they tweeted something out trying to condemn the movie and satisfy the restless natives.

Romney completely, utterly F'd this one up, which OK fine he could backtrack and say "oops, I didn't have all the facts", but now he's doubling down on stupid.

It wasn't random, but it did not come after the attack.

The guys who were in the embassy in Egypt were nervous about a possible riot and tried to prevent it.
