    saying the Administration lied about the nature of the attacks?  Don't you have to have some reason to lie?  I don't understand what benefit the administration gains if it was a spontaneous attack vs. a premeditated attack.  And they also seem to think that if the attack was premeditated, then it couldn't have been linked to the movie.  But they can't explain why.

    •  GOP meme (0+ / 0-)

      One of their favorite memes is "Pres. Bush kept us safe" from terrorist attacks--post 9/11 of course.

      They would like to play up any nominally "terrorist" attack on the US as evidence that Pres. Obama, by contrast, endangers us. US embassies are by definition US "soil" so dot dot dot.

      If the attack was caused by the offensive film, then the cause could be attributed to bigotry, putting Republicans in the hot seat (they know who they are).

      That's my read anyway.
