White House insists emabassy attackes, murders were over a film, not anti-American protests; ongoing attacks suggest otherwise
James Carney has the worse job on the planet – and I don’t feel sorry for him at all

“But this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, but it is in response to video that is offensive and to Muslims,” said Carney.
Not Anti-American protests? The violent mob was chanting “Obama we are all Osama”. That doesn’t sound like a movie review. Sounds pretty anti-American to me. Below I re-posted a Breitbart story from today. In my mind, a perfect illustration of the result of smart diplomacy, a weakened military, an apologetic President and not being able to tell our friends from our enemies. I just hope the State Department has issued warnings this time.
