In a disgustingly detached and dispassionate stilted tone reminiscent of his Fort Hood non-commital performance, Obama gave a statement today, not defending free speech but simply condemning the bad behavior.
However, Obama snapped right to it when given an opportunity to criticize Romney, in collaboration with the press, who were eager to collude to take advantage of what they saw as Romney's poor decision making.
The Libyan government continues to defend their own behavior, even though emerging facts indicate otherwise. Here's the most obvious one.
These are AFP/Getty images, whose captions read:
Libyan civilians help an unconscious man, identified by eyewitnesses as U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, at the US consulate compound in Benghazi in the early hours of September 12, 2012, following an overnight attack on the building. Stevens and three of his colleagues were killed in an attack on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city by Islamists outraged over an amateur American-made Internet video mocking Islam, less than six months after being appointed to his post.

Those who are "helping" this man to a "hospital" all have their cell phones out.
Like how these pictures got out. Of a dead man beaten by a mob.
Does that sound like "help"?
