"U.S. officials and Middle East analysts said Wednesday that an attack that killed four Americans at a U.S. Consulate in eastern Libya may have been planned by extremists and inspired by al-Qaeda. The U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three other Americans were killed Tuesday in an assault on the consulate in the city of Benghazi. President Obama strongly condemned the attack and pledged to bring the perpetrators to justice, vowing that "justice will be done." The attack followed a violent protest at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo over a low-budget anti-Muslim film made in the United States, and it initially appeared that the assault on the Benghazi consulate was another spontaneous response. But senior U.S. officials and Middle East analysts raised questions Wednesday about the motivation for the Benghazi attack, noting that it involved the use of a rocket-propelled grenade and followed an al-Qaeda call to avenge the death of a senior Libyan member of the terrorist network...".* The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Democrats never accused Bush of planning the 9/11 attacks. maybe he let it happened or he knew it was going to happen but he wasn't behind it. but the republicans don't have that level of honor and reconciliation.

Google "Romney’s Seven Biggest Debate Lies" and you'll find cited examples of what he's said. I'm not saying Obama didn't lie, but Romney sure did. 
WTF CENK~! Gimme a break are you really serious... let me help you using your own wording, vernacular with expression: OF COURSSSEEEE...... they and every single other adversary to the U.S. government is always planning how they can equal the scales into their favor and/or appear to have justice in retribution for the countless U.S. policies and attacks against them i.e.- reapers, lasers, sats, micros., bio-warfare, economic hit teams, etc. 
the movie has very little to do with this, raping the middle east for a very long time has alot to do with this
Oh, I see now, your a brainwashed idiot... Go on now, have fun you fanatical religious zealot. Lets see how your "Allah" protects you when you start another terrorist attack.
We did not invade you JUST because your insane leader attacked us, no, Saddam was also scudding thousands of innocent lives in both Kuwait and Israel. And Your God? I am a Christian but not even God would stop a nuclear launch once it is activated. And Guess what? The United States has Thousands of Satellites in Space, all armed with the Star Wars Program. The star wars program built lasers into the satellites to stop any incoming nukes that threatens America's safety.
And it is exactly that reason, that you are "Boiling" that concerns us all. All it takes is one nuclear weapon launch to start WWIII.
No offence but you guys aren't THAT important.
