Film Blamed for attacks on US Personnel
It’s being reported that the film titled Muslim Innocence is to blame for violence in Egypt and Libya. US Embassy personnel have been killed and Missile cruisers are reportedly being planted just of the Egyptian and Libyan Coasts according to US News Agencies.
Q: Can any sane person use a film as justification for murder?
Now members of the cast are being reported as claiming the producer of the film duped them into believing it was some kind of historical film about an ancient Egyptian called George according to GAWKER

US President Barack Obama has vowed the US will work with the Libyan government to bring those responsible for the deaths of US personnel to justice and has been quoted by pa.press.net as saying
“Make no mistake, justice will be done” – Barack Obama 12th September 2012
I certainly hope so Mr Obama. The 4 US Personnel were apparently evacuating the embassy. You can’t get closer to being shot in the back than that.
Although openly senior US officials are maintaining the line of these attacks being protests against the film and stating “there is no clear intelligence that indicated before hand of a possible attack” even though it’s now claimed by CNN that ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens, who was one of those killed warned of extremist groups and acts as far back as 2008 in close proximity to the embassy. CNN is reporting that speaking on condition of anonymity some US Officials believe this is a planned anniversary of 9/11 and that Chris Stevens was in fact targeted by the very pro al-qaeda extremists he warned the US of. Ambassador Stevens warning were among the many communications published by wikiLeaks in 2010/2011 say CNN.
Q: Was the west wrong to support the overthrow of Col. Gadhafi? Would we have been better off with the devil we knew or has the west only succeeded in creating the next war zone?
Time will tell….
