Well I like to look at who wanted or benefited the end result.
You really think it's proper to say that we've seen the "end result?"
Honestly - I don't think any established power would have wanted - nor will it benefit from - this chain of events.
Which in this case is increased Military activity and or scrutiny in the Middle east.
Exactly the opposite is going to happen.
As a military person operating in the middle east, all I can say is that you will see far fewer of us out on town during our time off. We already
operate fairly low key here, and we just took it even lower.
As far as scrutiny - this sort of event really doesn't change it. Even publicly - this event isn't going to do much to change the opinion people
have. It's not going to ignite a spark or be some kind of inflammatory topic amongst U.S. civilians that makes them cry for some kind of revenge any
more than the countless other Embassy attacks and deaths at the hands of Islamic extremists have.
Which is a direct cause of attacking US assets during an Election year, so who wanted that and who benefits from a more Hostile American public
attitude toward the Middle east?
Neither campaign will benefit from this. No one is going to change their mind about Obama or Romney at this point in the game based on these
There were likely a multitude of different agendas at play, here; but it's a collision of them. The group that orchestrated the attack had it
planned months in advance and was merely waiting for an excuse to pull it off (something they could work up a demonstration over). This just happened
to fit the bill. As for the people who made it - they're as crazy as the people who attacked the embassy - so who knows exactly what they hoped
would happen (probably just ignorant enough to believe their opinions to be relevant and worthy of putting into a movie).
And then someone thought it would be an awesome idea to release the trailer on 9/11. Probably someone in charge of marketing or an activist group who
couldn't help themselves.
