Townhall writers seem to have a problem with reality. I watched an interview of a journalist with a protester. The protester said they were attacking over the poke in the eye video. My guess is, the state department watched the same video. Then the journalist researched and found that yes, it was a terrorist attack...that was planned no more than three hours.
Once again the Tea Party/Townhall has to distort and fabricate to make their case.
Of course US/Israel flooding the region/rebels with heavy weapons has nothing to do with it, making spontaneous or hastely planned attacks possible.
