So some media hacks really believe a video sparked the attacks on our embassies -- even want to try the filmmakers for murder.
So once again their overarching concern is for.
Causes of Muslim rage rather than the -- itself.
But we know there's no justification for the ravages of savages.
And to take -- movie sparked the violence is irrelevant.
By the way I hate the phrase sparked -- something sparked an assault you would assume it would not happen on the solemn day that commemorates -- most devastating tragedy.
Sparked by Islamic extremists.
If you believe that's a coincidence I have a mosque downtown I'd like to sell you.
These media people are delusional.
We are the spark our existence our way of life is one long spark they won't be extinguished that spark.
-- -- reminded by our leaders to reject integration of religion but Christians are the butt of jokes by lazy comics and -- killed in places where jokes don't suffice.
So we really only rejected the integration of one religion -- we're scared.
So we need to stop worrying about what sparks -- and focus on protecting our citizens from this prehistoric evil.
As Hillary Clinton said these acts are -- founding.
-- it is confounding how unprotected our embassies are what's not compounding are the attackers motives they hate us.
Saying violence is no way to -- religion to extremists might as well say a fish is no way to honor up bicycle.
Evil only understands death.
Do you have does anybody believe for a minute that this was not planned.
It out -- for us.
Not here -- -- 2 o'clock in the morning we found out that the embassy was was attacked with that are refugees and that we lost the the ambassador.
I would sued YouTube to see this this film is that thirteen minute 512 trailer of a film -- only had a few thousand views at the time.
So there are probably more people are attacking the embassy that actually view that film this was more than just a reaction to a film this.
As you point out Greg -- if they hate us this is a way of life I mean you want when the giants when there's a whole bunch of New Yorkers who go crazy at giants went it if felt like that same mob mentality that same.
We hate them let's get -- here's an opportunity to do that yet and do we've seen you know he'll get -- was.
Murdered for for writing something that was it has lobbies of the -- rusty fatwa death cartoonist who started draw -- had to -- and hiding out.
We -- we treat Muslim religion differently because we're terrified of them.
Billions of cartoon -- use -- video out but they will use nothing.
We don't forget the British -- embassy was attacked this summer there wasn't anything that supposedly as you said sparked that they hate us and we sat around this table yesterday.
On 9/11 and we said they will continue to go after us and he will continue to kill us that is why when we hear.
Folks in the administration say there's no war on terror it's very very -- and the more we apologize.
The worse it gets Greg they don't carefully say we're sorry they don't care please stand up and say the First Amendment.
They don't care they don't respect our values and they're gonna continue to kill us that's why it's very disappointing when you have the United States cannot first and say.
We're very sorry that we that you were we did something wrong that should not be the -- -- -- I was in Iran the last congressional delegation we took they would Bakhtiar was the president went before he was ousted and -- -- came back in the country.
We looked out the window from the Intercontinental hotel and there were 200000 screaming radical Muslims as a frightening frightening thing we've got out of -- -- we could.
And I would tell you if I'm sitting in an embassy and I had 2003 -- who hate us they do.
This release of this this statement which is not cleared by the US State Department.
I -- injured during the middle of this attack I would release whatever you could possibly released to try to cool it down any thank each well look at.
Our third above the -- this statement was released prior to the mob uprising pride to the killings of statement was out.
Well which candidate -- different things that -- I hear but judge -- -- it I was beefy but.
Obama has been apologizing for us important for our treatment of Muslims since the first month or two -- office and that was his speech in Cairo in June.
For our reaction to 9/11.
Well and quickly his statement at this morning at 722.
Lead with we reject efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others while true it's not the leading message.
Yeah the United States cannot say that we protect religions and religious freedom -- what are we gonna -- I didn't say it was wrong I just didn't say it should be the main opening the team.
Data well how would I mean how do you deal with something like it seems intractable.
-- -- this movie.
They might not even ever seen it it just -- it was it as a diversionary tactic for terror.
In that world of social media.
When I understand that corporations.
Governments individuals they try to get out first with information.
It wasn't just so much that the State Department put out their statement but then they start tweeting.
They tried to reconfirm that there first instinct was not to say.
Get off of our property -- First Avandia and secondly freedom of speech is something that you all fought for and we will help you get there but not if you -- this kind of stuff.
But that -- a -- at the State Department right now I would tell all of my embassy people if there's anything happens here there's no social media.
There's like that because -- first responses are always wrong and they got them in a bunch of trouble.
We -- when there's a lot of unanswered questions here they're gonna have to they're gonna have to start answering things that they said earlier for example.
When the secretary of state says that the -- attack was the work of a -- and savage group.
Not the government -- the people of Libya I hope that's true.
But if this if you leaving it back to one part we find that the coordination somebody had to know where the ambassador was.
And somebody tipped them off and then.
Maybe it is true that the Libyans try to help him to get into the hospital but there's there's a lot more here enemy stagnation -- they should have backed off.
For a minute and one thing we -- you know is it that this brigade.
That it was but -- -- -- that -- consulate.
About six months ago and -- credit report.
So it's not surprising to me that they have both intelligence and ability to do that and use this now maybe somebody stirred up -- -- so they would get to divert.
Well that and yet to either paid or organize in a way that if they use -- videos have been on 9/11.
On 9/11 come forward Islamabad.
Let's show you -- it was I -- and as -- is clearly for the he's already need to meet you talked about did they were fighting for free speech -- -- -- square but do you know if they were really fighting for that -- -- -- fighting for our jobs and higher food prices.
I don't think I -- see Paul Revere and to -- square I don't necessarily think they were looking for a constitution.
And look we -- told Mubarak to go and now we have the Muslim Brotherhood -- -- here at word from the Democrats celebrating mass at the.
To me the most embarrassing -- -- out of this is.
-- -- of the media whether it's MSNBC or even some people here on this network.
Who are a -- exercising moral relativism that somehow saying something that is a joke or offensive about a religion is the same.
As somebody being beheaded or murdered that's idiotic that's -- this is disgusting it is offensive is.
I don't know in the Vietnamese go on the -- and I'm delighted Mubarak is gone uses -- murdered hundreds of thousand egyptians now.
Let's robot come out.
