    or the creator of that film:

    "The protest was planned by Salafists well before news circulated of an [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmodVun16Q4"]objectionable video ridiculing Islam's prophet, Mohammed[/ame], said Eric Trager, an expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
    The protest outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was announced Aug. 30 by Jamaa Islamiya, a State Department-designated terrorist group, to protest the ongoing imprisonment of its spiritual leader, Sheikh Omar abdel Rahman. He is serving a life sentence in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.
    When the video started circulating, Nader Bakkar, the spokesman for the Egyptian Salafist Noor party, which holds about 25% of the seats in parliament, called on people to go to the embassy. He also called on non-Islamist soccer hooligans, known as Ultras, to join the protest.
    On Monday, the brother of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri, Mohamed al Zawahiri, tweeted that people should go to the embassy and "defend the prophet," Trager said.
    Zawahiri justified al-Qaeda's 9/11 attacks in an interview with Al Jazeera last month."

    So, the protest was scheduled and planned 10 days prior, and had zero, nada, nothing to do with insults, but rather with the IMPRISONMENT of a terrorist.

    Deadly embassy attacks were days in the making

    Or they planned a protest, and then they heard about this film, and got really upset...

    But it's okay, I know you guys would be just as understanding if someone made a movie about Jesus portraying him as pedophile.

    Yeah, that's it.

    They planned a protest on 09/11.

    And then they used everything they could to fan the flames.

    What I don't understand...why didn't you hop a plane and get your ass over there for the fun? I'm sure you got the memo.

    Really? When was the last time we tried to kill someone for that? Christ is attacked all the time. We dont murder people over it.

    Or even for lil ole Joseph Smith. You libel him all the time. I dont have any desire to invade your home, burn it to the ground and kill you. Instead, Im praying for you.

    Maybe it's not at all comparable to this.

    It doesn't matter.

    Our admin tried to pretend that freedom of speech "caused" violence which was planned far in advance of the occurrence....and which was scheduled to take place on 911 before the terry jones thing even made the news:

    "
    The attack apparently occurred because in recent days, the al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri posted a video online calling on Libyans to avenge the killing of al-Qaeda's second in command, Abu Yahya al-Libi."

    "Our admin"?

    Who in "our admin" tried to " pretend that freedom of speech caused violence"?

    Have the embassy staff suddenly become part of the Obama administration?
