How do we know? Because people on the ground THERE said it was a non-issue. Do you really believe that people gathering to protest a video would bring missiles and missile launchers?<quoted text>
I don't care if Obama is a Muslim,
I don't care if Romney is a Mormon,
I don't care if Ari is gay,
I don't care if OZ is a child murderer,
I don't care is Ms Baaaaaaaaa is a liar(hehe),
I don't care if Dic is a Dick,
The whole Middle East was in an uproar over the video, why wouldn't anyone assume or at least conjecture, that the embassy attack was related??????
AND, how do you know that the Terrorist attack, wasn't related to the 'video' AND the 'anniversary'
"WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?"
It was initially believed that the assault on the American consulate was the result of protests that had spiraled out of control. It was only reasoned later that the attack was far too coordinated to be a random act of violence, and so it was declared a terrorist attack. The date of the attack, the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, is also conspicuous enough to support this reasoning.
