The events began with protests outide our embassy in Cairo, Egypt. The object of those riots was to get the Blind Sheik released from prison in the US and were organized by the Muslim Brotherhood. While the rioters were trying to break into our embassy, some as yet unidentified flunky released a letter of apology about a YouTube video made by a Coptic Christian which had about 300 hits at the time. This idiotic move gave rise to spin off protests but had absolutely nothing to do with the attacks in Benghazi. It's my theory that Ansar Al-Sharia(sp?) organized the Benghazi operation as a kidnapping of Amb. Stevens and working a trade for the Blind Shiek. The lack of military response to Benghazi makes it look like the Soetoro regime may have been complicit. It may also help explain the efforts to cover this up.
