Glick: 9/11 attacks on US embassies weren't about a movie

As I'm sure you'll all be shocked to hear, Caroline Glick reports that the 9/11 attacks on the US Embassy in Cairo and the US Consulate in Benghazi had nothing to do with a movie. In fact, they were planned.
The attack in Libya was well planned and executed. It wasn't about a spontaneous protest against some ridiculous internet movie of Muhammad. The assailants came armed to the teeth, with among other things, RPG 7s. They knew that the US Ambassador was in Benghazi rather than Tripoli. They knew how to track his movements, and were able to strike against him after he and his colleagues left the consulate building and tried to flee in a car. As Israel Channel 2's Arab Affairs Correspondent Ehud Yaari noted this evening, you don't often see well trained terrorists participating in protests of movies.

Then there is the attack in Cairo. They were led by Mohammad Zawahiri - Ayman Zawahiri's brother. According the Thomas Josclyn in the Weekly Standard, the US media has been idiotically presenting him as some sort of moderate despite the fact that in an interview with Al Jazeerah he said said, "We in al Qaeda..."

Egypt's US supported Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi recently released Zawahiri from Egyptian prison. The same Barack Obama who has no time in his schedule to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu next week in New York, is scheduled to meet Morsi.

The Egyptian government has not condemned the attack on the US Embassy in Cairo. But Morsi is demanding that the US government prosecute the film's creator.

You may be wondering how some movie no one's heard of has caused such a hullabaloo. Well, as it turns out, the film was screened on an Egyptian Salafist television channel. Obviously the Salafists -- many of whom, like Zawahiri were released from prison by Morsi, wanted to stir up anti-US violence on the eve of 9/11. So if the film is responsible for the violence, a finger needs to be pointed to its chief distributor -- Al Qaida's Egyptian friends and members.
Meanwhile, the Manchurian candidate goes on fiddling as if nothing is burning, while the mainstream media slams the challenger for daring to point out that the incumbent's policies had a lot to do with this.

What could go wrong?

i now believe that this was a combined al quiada and mb operation with the pres of egypt and members of the current libyan gov in cahoots.

it was done as a show of strength against the usa, which was caught with its pants down...basically because this admin has bought into the state dept meme that the arab spring was real

dont believe that obama is a manchurian candidate...but he is naive, in that he thanked the libyan government today....for what???

romney jumped the gun....however, when it comes to intel, both sides of the aisle have to take responsibility

and this was a test to see how this government will react to what was obviously a straight, two pronged terror attack

if handled like clinton did, american interests are gonna get hit hard again
