hot air here, but that's about it. Show me some actual proof and I'll be willing to concede Obama is a malicious murderer who left all of them to
die. I have seen the e-mails and flash messages, they are confusing to say the least. It's fairly obvious most of the people on the ground couldn't
figure out what was going on.
The main difference here is I don't have an ax to grind here, I'm just calling it like I see it. I'm not seeing a lot here.

I don't have an axe to grind either and when I first heard mention of the video the day of the attack I spent hours examining the view counts of the
various versions of the video on YouTube, its equivalent in that region, mainstream news sources in the region and known Islamic fundamentalist
websites. Based on the paltry view counts and the almost complete lack of mention of the video from the typical Islamic fundamentalist sources who
showcase such media deemed offensive to the Prophet Muhammad which serve as a catalyst for protests.
After my own research conducted on September 11, 2012 that I outlined above, it became clear to me that this video could not possibly be the catalyst
for this attack. As more and more evidence emerged to backup my conclusion I was disgusted when White House press secretary Jay Carney and Ambassador
to the UN Susan Rice continued to push this lie to the American public. I do not appreciate being lied to by our elected officials regardless of
Chris Stevens was the first U.S. ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1979. To me, that fact raises it up a level and Stevens' selfless
dedication and commitment to to foreign service makes it critically important for the nation he served to honor his memory by pushing for the truth
and not allow his memory to be muddled and tarnished by lies.
