    Murdering 4 human beings in American territory, an Embassy is American territory, that is criminal sharon.


    just to add... more than criminal .... its a declaration of war.
    true, a gunship should have come on that scene and opened up on those jihadists with a mini gun (picture the helicopter strafing runs against the somalias on the rooftops in Black Hawk Down

    Yep that how it happens someone does something violent, until then there is nothing violent.

    Protesting an offensive film is not really an illegal activity
    I agree, unless it involves the activities of rioting and killing. Even then being a film critic is not a crime in and of itself, this breaks things down to a common denominator; we have all disliked something an image, a message, a depiction in film and a civilized society welcomes discordant comments, but, not riots and killing because the reviews are bad.

    Are you assuming that all the protesters were part of this AQ cell?

    I am stating that those who rioted are complicit in mayhem and the murderous activities that took place.

    Were they? I don't think they were armed. The authorities seem to think that the gunmen numbered about 20 and were from an AQ cell located southeast of Tripoli. So far they have arrested 4.

    No need to be armed to have been "complicit" def..."Associated with or participating in a questionable act or a crime". The questionable act or crime here is the rioting, mayhem and murder.

    definition of complicit

    I was not insulting you. I was using a "term of art", as such I used a citation to validate my use of the term.
