Intelligence chairman doubts Libya attack linked to video
The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday there's no proof indicating this month's consulate attack in Libya – which killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans – was related to protests over an anti-Islam video.
"I have seen no information that shows that there was a protest going on as you have seen around any other embassy at the time. It was clearly designed to be an attack," Rep. Mike Rogers said on CNN's "State of the Union."

The fact you and others can so easily dismiss it, assists in the inevitable demise of everything we think we stand for in this country.edit on 24-9-2012 by loam because: (no reason given)
During his address to the United Nations today in New York City, President Obama again blamed violent Islamic riots in the Middle East on a video....six times.
In every country, there are those who find different religious beliefs threatening; in every culture, those who love freedom for themselves must ask how much they are willing to tolerate freedom for others.
That is what we saw play out the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world. I have made it clear that the United States government had nothing to do with this video, and I believe its message must be rejected by all who respect our common humanity.
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.
That "video" has been used as a scapegoat for the Obama administration in an effort to distract away from failed policies in the Middle East and with proponents of violent Jihad. Obama also refused to call the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya a terrorist attack, he didn't say the word terrorism once during his address, directly contradicting White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and National Counterterrorism Center Director Matthew Olson.
