    Written August 19, 2012 ... by Robin Wright ... and he nailed it.

    Some think the Salafis are/were behind the embassy attacks.

    We have not learned a thing since Iran/Contra - being in Bed with Saddam and being in bed with Al-Qaeda - etc... in the end we always lose and we always continue to spend.

    Islamists seek power through protests - News from USA TODAY

    This truly is a mess Obama helped create ... Bush started it ... Obama will have to fix it.

    Sammy had it right
    Should be our governments motto by now.

    The Salifi's have been working with the MB:

    Nour party coordinates election strategy with Muslim Brotherhood | Egypt Independent

    Wonder if the NY Times vetted this article with the WH to help Obama:

    NYTimes Columnist Sent Article Draft to White House's Valerie Jarrett for Comments Before Publishing | The Weekly Standard



    Nice coincidence since the posting history of Bacile suggest HE may be a Salafist:

    Were “Sam Bacile” and “The Innocence of Muslims” Part of a Salafi Plot All Along? | FrontPage Magazine


    Wonder what the feds picked up when they interviewed Bacile yesterday.....???????????


    With the administration touting this film as the issue what would it say about their competence if they are being played by the Salsfi's?

    We seriously got played ... the media is focusing on Romney's reaction when it should be focusing on putting Obama and his administration on public trial through the media for their blunder. Romney's name should not even be brought up right now - he is not the issue.

    My guess is that we may never know. Unless they can connect Bacile with radical Christians, then it will be big news.

    Yup ... also ... the cynic in me ... sorry I cannot help it.

    Why was security so lax on 9/11 ... just like the original 9/11?

    That seriously needs to be explored ... hard to fathom all our experts went brain dead.

    The media won't look into this, it doesn't fit a narrative that is favorable to Obama.

    They will look to make Romeny and the idiot in Fl the issue.

    Not if you consider Obama an expert.

    We were never in bed with Al Qaeda, but we sure didn't mind if a few Arabs wanted to run around Afghanistan shooting Soviet and communist Afghan soldiers.

    Salafism has been around for a long time. It is essentially a very old form of literalist teaching that was revived in response to European imperial pressure in the Middle East. It's not new and, as long as the US remains involved "imperially" in the Middle East, it's not going away, nor will the US stray far from the crosshairs of Salafist Jihadis.

    That's just life when projecting power in the region.

    This is, of course, the over-arching concept that defines the problems the US has in the ME. All this nit-picking about which sect of Muslims or what's happening to Coptics or what Bebe Netanyahoo is saying today is small-picture thinking that keeps us on the treadmill that we simply must jump from. The treadmill is imperialism and death for the sake of natural resources that are not ours and which we don't need. If we weren't such pigs, we could do just fine without Saudi oil. If we weren't so lazy, we could develop more efficient ,eans of renewable energy and conserve more efficiently.

    But of course, we are lazy pigs. We're entangled in the Middle East and are imagining the tenuous dynamic between Israel and Egypt as some sort of assurance that we can continue to operate there with impunity. Truth is, we have no allies there. We pay off Israel, the Saudis, Egypt (and who knows who else) with weapons and cash. Only a loser has to pay his friends.
