    I wouldnt say Obama has bent over backwards to the arab world, I think he has tried to distance the US from the video which was the right course of action.

    You can say the same about this film that made such a horrible uprise in the Arab world. It was an old film and the shock might have worn off too... but no.... and American Ambassador and many others on both sides have been killed because of it.

    The film is only like a year old. And it has little intellectual value.

    I do not think it is cultural. I believe the rioters and killers were lawless lunatics. There were laws in place that made their actions criminal in nature.

    If their goal was to piss off those who practice Islam, it seems to me they wouldn't be criticizing Obama, they'd be saying "keep up the good work"

    Frankly, I wish he'd just keep his freaking mouth shut period, about anything which could be offensive to religous groups. He can't open his mouth without pissing all over himself with apologies for our freedom of speech.

    can you give me some examples of Obama being offensive to relgious groups so I can get an idea of what your talking about?

    Obama's silence is this instance could have been interpreted as as endorsement to these irrational and crazed people. No matter what he or any president would have done it would have been wrong in someone's eyes.
