Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?
in response to reader comment: cartoon riots are reconnaisance

The initial US administration line seemed to be 'it is ok because it is in defence of religious belief'. Although the hook, line and sinker did seem to get extracted a few days later, showing oneself to that easily fooled is likely to have serious consequences.
