A contrived 9/11 protest guaranteed big media coverage.

It will be interesting to see how Morsi responds.

The incident prompted U.S. security guards to fire off a volley of warning shots as a large crowd gathered outside, apparently upset about the production of a Dutch film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.

Emphasis added.

American, Dutch... One embassy full of white guys is as good as the next.

I know it sounds bad because we have 9/11 and we have the whole Iranian embassy things but if you look up past incidents around the world, this kind of thing happens.

Greeks throw firebombs at embassies. Russians shoot at the embassy. Riots in Germany in front of embassy.

That's why diplomacy is not for hot heads.

"this kind of thing happens"

That's just the weakest excuse for bad behavior ever. Right up there with "boys will be boys" after a date rape or a violent hazing.

It sure says a lot about the people of Egypt embracing militant Islam. Funny how the Islamic/nationalistic militants can commit awful crimes with little or no street outrage, but we might be making a movie that just might be an insult to Islam, and they throw a riot that could have taken lives. As if Obama himself was directing producing and starring in this movie.

So let the stomping fun begin
Bash their weasely skulls right in
It's tradition, that makes it okay

Hey everyone, it's Weasel Stomping
We'll have some fun on Weasel Stomping
Put down your gun, it's Weasel Stomping Day
Hip Hip Hooray, it's Weasel Stomping Day

Weasel Stomping Day
Hey!

Just in case someone doesn't know the source...

Oh, and this is a sarcastic response to the "these things happen" part.

This is sad reality and one that is silencing a great deal of criticism of such madness that took place today. People are afraid to speak out because they are afraid to offend. So next time some enraged right wing lunatic shoots up some place because they're all liberals let's just respond with "this kind of thing happens." It's bullshit and what we're seeing today is a sad reflection on 21st century civilization. We talk the talk of the "Dark Ages" and going backwards but when Islam is involved we suddenly experience shrinkage.

If something like this happened in Israel for other reasons there would be world condemnation and protests "for peace" all around the world. Pathetic.

The events in Egypt, and now in Libya, seem to have parallels in the whole cartoon jihad. I'm not sure that most people who protested/rioted even saw the movie/clips that they are using as impetus to protest/riot. There's more here than meets the eye.

Sadly, that has happened a lot, and will happen some more. Methinks its time for US Cyber Command to start messing with the computers of Salafist media outlets.

It appears that they over dubbed the original dialogue. So I imagine if this is true they probably turned up the blasphemy up to eleventy.

Indeed. And then when we complain they'll scream "Cover Up!" Propaganda sucks.

Actually, what "lied about the provenance" means is that they said the film was American not Dutch. From CNN:

Egyptian groups point to U.S. websites, including YouTube, that have scenes from the film. Some anti-Muslim blogs also have flagged the movie.

In a series of disjointed scenes, filmmakers depict Prophet Mohammed as a child molester, womanizer and ruthless killer.

Most of the Muslim world considers depictions of Mohammed to be blasphemous and deeply offensive.

It was not clear late Tuesday who produced the film and under what auspices.

If that bolded part is true, I feel certain we'll find Geert Wilders had a hand in the film's creation.

I was getting that from his other Tweets. This being one:
