Movie Stirs Protest at U.S. Embassy in Cairo, Obama leading from behind
Well, this is reassuring – via the NYTimes.com. The anniversary of 9/11 and we only have two embassies burning.
And all the media can talk about is Mitt Romney’s alleged weak foreign policy experience. So what if the guy in the White House today acts like he doesn’t have any at all after three years. He must be squeezing in a round of golf after doing his thing for 9/11, as he’s nowhere in the news.
In Washington, a State Department spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, said the United States was working with Egyptian authorities to restore order.
Embassy security officials sent most staff members home early on Tuesday after learning of the coming protest, said a United States official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
It was not clear who had made the film.
Morris Sadek, an Egyptian-born Christian in the United States known for his strongly anti-Islam views, said in an interview from Washington that he was promoting the video on his Web site and on certain television stations, which he did not identify.
He said the video “explains the problems of the Copts who suffer from Muslims,” for which he blamed the Koran. via NYTimes.com
