Amid uneasy calm in Cairo, prime minister says some were paid to protest - CNN Just read an article about how some of the protesters may have been paid to protest against the United States. I wonder who would do such a thing and why? What could possibly be the motive behind this? Romney supporters to make President Obama look bad? President Obama supporters to make him look good? President Obama supporters to make him look good but backfired making him look bad? Muslim group or groups because rioting over a YouTube video is just down right stupid and they know it?
