The US remains popular? Why is it popular now? Because of your reason that Obama did all the right things? Then riddle me this: Why are we being given no reason for the ambassador being there in the first place? There was no apparent reason for the consulate being attacked if the ambassador wasn't there?
That reminds me, what happened to all the other people who were at the embassy and why haven't they spoken up?
This all sounds as though the administration is waiting for this whole episode to fade away, which it will, with the help of the media.
