Under the heading of: if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, don't start thinking zebras. The protestors are standing in front of US Embassies around the world, burning US flags. They have killed 4 US citizens. What would it take for it to be a protest aimed the US, Mr. Carney? You have to be the dumbest person in this country to not believe the protests are aimed at America.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney just took questions at the daily briefing about the ongoing and escalating situation of riots in the Middle East and other parts of the world. As Guy reported earlier, a story by the UK Independent said the White House had intelligence that U.S. Embassies would be attacked on 9/11 and did nothing. Carney refuted the report today saying it is "false."

"We were not aware of any intelligence that an attack was imminent. That report is false," he said.
