I honestly dont know what world some posters on here live on!
Do you honestly expect the American gov to say " yeh sorry but we defend our free speech so the rest of you can jog on"?.
Its a international incident and America has many interests in the ME both financial and military, you honestly want them to throw that away to defend some guys moronic video? The American gov spoke out against the attacks and have vowed to bring those responsible to justice while at the same time have distanced themselves from the video. Would you prefer they took credit for the video?
