Hate Speech, what were these protests really are about, the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, asks why isn't the Benghazi US consulate listed on
the US Gov't website, and more!

Are you talking about this situation with Pakistan ?
27 people have died in U.S. drone attacks on Pakistan. U.S. officials are now saying a drone strike yesterday over Pakistan's tribal areas was to
target al-Qaida's second in command, Abu Yahia al-Libi, although they were unsure whether he was hit.
Islamabad demands an end to the attacks as a condition to re-opening its northern border to NATO supply vehicles. But the unmanned strikes continue,
the latest on North and South Waziristan.
I posted a thread a few days ago somewhat relating to this. Apparently the attack on the consulate was organized by a radical militant group rather
than the actual protesters. Link to thread
I've seen the film and personally I have a hard time believing anyone would find it worthy of protesting. There's alot more going on in the middle
east right now than meets the eye.
The attack on the consulate was a terrorist attack. I knew it was as soon as I read about it and kept reading about it long before the Whitehouse
finally admitted to it. But once they did the damage was done and seeds of lies were sown. And people say America doesn't have state run media
At least eight women have died in a Nato air strike in Afghanistan's eastern province of Laghman : source

The so called "movie" that no one watched, was pulled out of the closet
for 'Damage-Control' purposes.
The real issues need to be addressed for there to be any
peace, u.s. needs to stop the denial and come clean.
Here's the real irony. Long before I would implicate an obscure YouTube video as the spark of the dissatisfaction across the region, I would've
looked to the Democratic convention and their relentless gloating over the Osama bin Laden kill.
Has anyone thought about that? Does anyone think THAT didn't piss some people off over there?
Doesn't sound very statesman like does it?
And it wasn't just Biden at the convention, it was nearly every speaker...
Now don't get me wrong. I'm not opposed to the outcome of getting Osama. But listen carefully to how we broadcasted to the entire globe with
unfettered glee the accomplishment. Frankly, we converted something of justice into something approximating revenge. If many Americans could hear that
and feel that it was off color, what do you think a lot of Muslims thought?
I'm also pretty sure that given the chance Republicans would've done the same thing, which makes the point that generally we are colossally stupid
on this issue.
Now comes this United Nations initiative against hate speech. Makes me wonder if what we heard at the Democratic Convention would qualify?
I guess the point is be very careful what you wish for...and... people who live in glass houses...and all.
