    Again, the radicals are used to define the whole. Does that happen in the US? Nope. McVeigh was a radical brand of Christian. Do we blame Christianity? No. He was a radical.

    I live near the recent killings at the Century Theatre in Aurora. Was he a Christian? Likely, but undetermined. Was he a whack-job? Probably. Were his deeds done in the name of his God? Undetermined, but not assumed. What if he was a Muslim? The unspeakable murders would have been assuredly attributed to his religion, would they not?

    What of the Columbine killings? Was their religion ever called into question? Nope. What if they had been Muslims?

    The world is unfortunately littered with mass killings and there is blame to be placed all around.

    Pres. Obama boycotted Intel briefings since Sept.5th…
    Sec.State, responsible for security for overseas US personnel, exposed her total clue-lessness “How could this have happened in a city we liberated”?
    (no US Marines sent to guard the embassy in Libya)
    Obama and his bragged-about mastery of foreign policy while scoffing at GOP candidate Romney, “Built This Situation”…by 4 years of “Appeasement and Apologies”….as Charles Krauthammer summed up Obama’s failures.
    Replace Obama with a sensible Pro-America president in 2013…Romney, pro-Israel, pro-defense, pro-support-our-allies foreign policy.

    Steinhardt died in a plane crash. It was tragic, but it’s not the same thing. Its not as if Canadian extremists killed him.

    Highly probably by the local Al Qaeda as we’ve been bumping so many of them off!

    Disgusto, that little snippet of Clinton’s speech that you quoted was Breitbarted out of context. It was a rhetorical question. She answered it later in the paragraph. Now, why don’t you calm down and stop ranting until we actually know what happened? (It’s very unclear that the film had anything to do with the military attack — the mostly peaceful protest, sure, but the military attack looks more and more like Al Qaeda’s revenge for killing their second in command last June).

    Cheney/Rumsfeld first advice on 9/11: Bomb Iraq. Hopefully we have smarter people doing follow up on this one. Obama and Biden have said the right thing: “We will get them”, but also have the intelligence to say, "We will get the RIGHT ONES!’

    This bloodshed belongs on the hands of the “Christian Fundies” .
    .so posted dredpirate.
    the original report said an Israeli-American produced the film that must have been true, if the Egyptian Coptic Christians supported it. Their faith began soon after the Jewish Christian church began in Jerusalem….brought to Egypt by an Egyptian noble converted to Christ by Philip in the Bible account.
    the Coptics and other biblical Christians do not wage murder on non-Christians. The Muslims have done mass murder since the days of Mohammed. The bloodshed is on Islamic Jihadist hands, dred. And news reports that as of Sept. 4th, the Egyptian government warned Israel and the USA that on the anniversary of 9/11/01, plans were active to do attacks on both Israeli and American sites and people. It was co-ordinated, and it is spreading, now in Yemen, in Sana….the US Embassy has been attacked.
    Those bloodthirsty Jihadists don’t need a “reason” and the excuse was given to the gullible MSM media that it is over a video! NOT.
    As a US citizen, you should know we have the right to express opinions, and that includes videos. It is not Americans’ fault that Muslims can’t tolerate “free speech”..
    certainly Christians and Jews suffer continually from attacks by persons using “free speech” to slander and lie and make false accusations, such as you did in your post.

    @John Orr

    McVeigh was not a christian, he renounced christianity, he expressly did not consider himself a christian. the radicals that did this DO consider themselves Muslim, and in fact are supported—unfortunately be a large minority of the Muslim population

    Dred. If you say anything else I will take it as a personal insult and destroy your house——this is not true———but by your logic, now you must never say anything again or any violence brought against you will be your own fault

    the God of the Christians forbids murdering fellow humans, although He commanded justice by trial and legal execution of murderers. Murder is illegal slaughter of innocent persons, and the Bible condemns murderers….unforgiven, they can not enter Heaven as God’s adopted children.
    but the Koran teaches that Allah commands murder of innocents with rewards in an afterlife paradise….how horrible.
    dredpirate is making excuses for murderers, and blaming the innocent victims for their own murders. Doesn’t pass the “logical” or “moral” test, IMO.
