I offer prayers for the repose of the souls of these four Americans who lost their lives so needlessly. I also pray for the families of these Americans as they deal with the senseless tragedy.
After the attack came the looting of the U.S. Consulate by marauders.

The reported reason for the attack was that trailers for a new movie are circulating on the Internet. The movie is called The Muhammed Movie, and supposedly depicts the "Messenger"-- that is, Muhammed -- in a negative light. The movie has not even been released yet. No matter. Certain Muslims do not like what they saw in the trailers, so they went on the offensive to protect their "Messenger" and their religion.
Similar protests occurred in Cairo, Egypt yesterday also, but no one died there.

President Obama came out and spoke minutes ago in the Rose Garden. He stated that those who committed these acts would be sought, and that they would be brought to justice. In fact, Obama quoted almost verbatim his predecessor, George W. Bush. Obama said "...and make no mistake, justice will be done." Turns out on October 24, 2001, George W. Bush gave a speech in Glen Burnie, Maryland, to employees of the Dixie Printing Company. As the excerpt below shows, page 49, at the end of the fifth paragraph: "And make no mistake about it, justice will be done."
