Where did the information blaming a YouTube video for sparking this attack come from? Not a single shred of information to prove this has ever come to light. Yet for two weeks it was all the president, sec of state, ambassador to the UN, and whitehouse spokeskid talked about. When the flag draped coffin of Chris Stevens arrived home, the YouTube video was blamed. At the UN general assembly the President blamed the YouTube video. The administration even put out a public service announcement pleading to the Muslim world to disregard this video.
Where did this ridiculous notion that a YouTube video had anything to do with the ambassador's murder come from?
Does it not trouble you that we have an administration that publicly laments and appologizes for free speech? How about censoring free speech by demanding YouTube take the video down? Or the perpwalk and arrest of an American citizen for posting this video?
