Subject: RE: porn+FL Rev koran burner=ambassador killed
As I watched various news programs late last night, it became evident that there were several events, which may or may not be directly connected. We may never know exactly who 'saw' a film, or what their intention was based on, or whether there would have been attacks without the film.

What we DO have is a timeline of when various events happened... including Obama's & Romney's reaction to the film, the protests, the attacks and each other's statements.

While we wait for 'some' clarification of who was actually responsible for the various protests and attacks, we can focus on the responsibility for the stupid, hateful film .... which is indefensible no matter what its causality is deemed to be. We can also evaluate the 'rush to judgment' and political posturing of Mitt Romney, who is being criticized by many Republicans for his blundering.

.... and we can recognize the amazing dedication of many of our foreign service officers who work long hours in dangerous countries.
