    You mean people actually believed that video to be the reason for Benghazi ?

    It is also what Obama (and Clinton?) wanted the US voters to believe about the Benghazi "spontaneous protest". At that time (9/11/12) the selling of "UBL is dead, GM is alive and AQ is on the run" required that planned (AQ?) terror attacks against US gov't defended targets were no longer a problem.

    Good Morning!
    And who made the producer of the video a villain? The same person that was AWOL yesterday in France.
    And boy is this administration getting a lot of flack over their absence in the news.

    Did you see the Daily News this morning?

    Good morning, Vesper.

    Shameful decision on our part! What on earth is wrong with Obama? His talk does not match his walk for some reason where these terrorists are concerned, and the world saw that. He wants cooperation - sometimes others do, too. Bad judgment shown here at a very important time. Why?

    This is how to deprive the terrorists of victory. For complete victory the news organizations world wide need to roundly condemn Islamic clerics who glorify violence and promote violence, and the governments should deport such people back to the dirty holes they came from.
    The only way to deprive them is to send them back where they came from, gain independence from oil, and block off all access.

    Isolate the ME from the rest of the world.

    No immigration from there unless the individual is highly desirable, no trading with the ME, no communication with the ME, etc.

    They would regress to Mideval levels while sitting upon piles of their own useless oil. Laughable things like little illnesses would turn into epidemics that kill thousands. Food will be scarce with zero imports. There will be no escape outside of being a genius who can provide for another country. The masses would otherwise be bereft of everything.

    The ME would rot until they finally decide to join the rest of the world and quit this nonsense.

    Oh would that be a wonderful world, and a plausible one. We just need to stop feeding these oil tycoons...

    Anyways...

    Europe is weak, useless, and stupid if they think a prep rally will do anything.

    His walk so far is bigger than his talk. He at least is ordering air-strikes on ISIS and has a garrison in the ME.

    The french are doing nothing, like they have been doing for a while since WWII.

    They can make some good cheese though

    I was also disappointed that the U.S. had no senior officials at the rally. IMO, the President, Vice President or Secretary of State should have been there. As the Secretary was in India, it would have made sense for either the President or Vice President to have been there. While their absence doesn't have major substantive implications, it does have major symbolic implications at a time when it is essential that the world rally for the cause of free expression. Furthermore, France is a longstanding reliable ally.

    From NBC News on September 19, 2014:

    U.S. military forces carried out two more airstrikes against ISIS militants in Iraq on Thursday and Friday, striking a boat and a small ground unit, United States Central Command said. The strikes came the same day that France participated in airstrikes against the terror group in Iraq for the first time.

    Beats me why everyone in this administration failed to show up.
    Heck Holder was already in Paris for a meeting and instead of joining the march, went to an interview taping on NBC.
    Neither Obama or Biden had anything scheduled for yesterday. Not even golf.
    Frenchy French Kerry was in India. It's an 8 hr flight from New Delhi to Paris. Kerry could have easily traveled to Paris for the march in the Boeing 757 we taxpayers provide for his travels, completely well staffed with all the comforts of home .
