Yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, crazy Muslims in Egypt and Libya went on a rampage.
In Egypt, a mob of 2,000 stormed the U.S. embassy in Cairo, shredded the American flag and replaced it with a black flag praising Allah and Muhammad.
In Libya, a group close to al Qaeda attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, then fired a rocket at the car carrying U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, killing him and three other embassy staff.
According to all accounts, including the NY Times, the attackers blame this movie about Muhammad as their excuse to riot, loot and kill. Here’s the trailer (watch it before YouTube pulls it):
In other words, the movie is a ruse.
The clue is in the timing of events.
Both violent incidents in Egypt and Libya took place on what day?
September 11, 2012
- the 11th anniversary of 9/11; and
- a day after CBS 60 Minutes’ broadcast of Scott Pelley’s extensive interview with “Mark Owen,” the former Navy SEAL and author of Killing Bin Laden, his book on Navy SEAL Team 6’s assassination of Osama bin Laden.
Mostafa Hussein, a psychiatrist and blogger, pointed to a photograph that showed that the protesters had also scrawled the name Osama bin Laden on a sign outside the Cairo embassy.
Ben Laden written on US embassy sign. Yeah right you are protesting an insult to Islam. http://t.co/vhKEsoTt /via @Mad_Darsh
UPDATE: Both the U.S. House Intelligence Committee and the Pentagon now say the attacks were not random mob events reacting to the movie, but rather well-planned, well-coordinated, well-armed terrorist attacks. See my post on this here.
