What did obama know? He made the statement prior? Why? If he knew, he is culpable as those who murdered and this should be investigated to the highest levels.<quoted text>
Earth to tip.
I wouldn't call the President's statement prior to the attacks (in response to demonstrations) an apology. He made clear that the US government does not endorse the views expressed, reiterating that the US believes (officially) in respect for religious viewpoints.
Now, apparently the group in Libya who launched the attack used the protest as a deliberate cover. This made it look to all the world that the attacks were a part of the protests. There was also an initial lack of information with regard to the film and the film-maker. Early reports found that Terry Jones has been associated with showing the film and scheduled an anti-Islam event (more provocation) for his 9 11 celebration.
All of this confusion is good reason for a measured response that takes time to understand what is happening before going off half-cocked, and particularly in using the incident for political gain within this country.
But, you cannot go around demanding immediate action at the same time you want complete accuracy. The truth is never as simple as you want it to be.
You are as simple as you want to be.
