    No doubt we'll hear more apologies from the Obama administration today about how beastly it is for the US to embrace the First Amendment.

    Also no doubt, they will make their apology after saying that there is no justification for the attacks. If you find those statements irreconcilable in logic, that puts you one step ahead of Obama and the State Department.

    In Yemen, they actually got into the compound, ripped down the American flag, and put al-Qaeda's black banner up instead:

    Chanting "death to America," hundreds of protesters angered by an anti-Islam film stormed the U.S. Embassy compound in Yemen's capital and burned the American flag on Thursday, the latest in a series of attacks on American diplomatic missions in the Middle East.

    American missions have been attacked this week in three Arab nations - Yemen, Egypt and Libya - that have faced persistent unrest and are struggling to restore law and order after last year's revolts deposed their authoritarian regimes.

    The protests in Yemen and Egypt point to an increased boldness among Islamists who have become more powerful amid the turmoil since the revolts. In the past, protests have broken out over perceived insults to Islam from the West, but in Arab countries they never escalated to the degree of breaching embassies, suggesting now Islamists feel they can act with impunity.

    Read that last sentence very carefully. Why do the Islamists feel they can act "with impunity?" No doubt Obama apologists will find some way to blame Romney.

    In the Yemeni capital on Thursday, protesters smashed windows as they breached the embassy perimeter and reached the compound grounds, although they did not enter the main building housing the offices.

    Angry young men brought down the U.S. flag in the courtyard, burned it and replaced it with a black banner bearing Islam's declaration of faith - "There is no God but Allah."

    There has been a curious omission in the media about this black flag being the "Islamist" flag. It is, in fact, the flag of al-Qaeda but no one in the press seems interested in reporting that.

    Where were the police? The Army? It's not like they didn't know these protests were coming.

    In Tunis, the protests were better policed:

    Anti-American rioting spread yesterday to Tunisia, where police used tear gas to stop hundreds of protesters from storming the United States Embassy in protest over a film mocking the prophet Mohammed.

    The throngs of demonstrators, who carried the white and black banners of militant Salifist Muslims, had been protesting peacefully in Tunis for hours when about 300 started to break through the gates.

    The embassy remained open as police forced the protesters back.

    Earlier, the US embassies in Tunisia and Algeria warned Americans to avoid crowded places because of expected protests.

    If I were the maker of that ridiculous film about Mohammad, I would release it now. It would probably become the #1 movie in the world considering all the free publicity it's getting.

    The trouble is, any movie theater that dared show it would probably be blown up by the nearly peace loving, almost tolerant, but not exactly learned members of the Religion of the Perpetually Outraged.

    There is no movie. At least none that anyone has been able to find. Nor is there a movie maker. It's starting to smell like a jihadi operation made by terrorists to be buried and resurrected at the proper time. Which was September 11, 11 years after the initial attack and on the same day of the week, Tuesday.

    Isn't it curious that this outrage has been so conveniently resurrected after the trailer has been on the internet, unfound and undisturbed for two years?

    Uh, actually, our fellow American citizens, fighting for their lives in that consulate, tried BEGGING us to abide by the First Amendment.

    For those who don't know what is in the First Amendment, it guarantees FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

    Except, of course, if you're an ignorant right ringer.

    The candidate for the fanatical rabid right wing is SO against the First Amendment, they actually agree with that scumbag Mittens who invited more violence by condemning our First Amendment and freedom of religion by LYING about the president of the United States.

    I don't get the point...
    Now we are guilty of denying someone freedom of religion....
    Is there anything the left wont blame on us when assholes murder our people...

    Why is it always our fault and not the fault of the people who perpetrate these heinous acts....

    Oh that's right it's Bush's fault.

    The Bill of Rights only extends to Americans and people who are legally or illegally on American soil. The US is under no requirement to extend the freedoms we enjoy to the rest of the world. In other words there is no 1st Amendment protection in Cairo or Bengazi or anywhere else in the world except to American citizens. It would be nice if the left extended the same religious considerations to Christians libving in America as they seem suddenly aware of in the creepy world of Mohammed.

    It's easier to blame a movie than to admit that this administration did nothing to strengthen security on the anniversary of our greatest tragedy and Haji's biggest fucking holiday.
