Who started it all?

Reader comment on item: Rampaging Islamists

Dr. Pipes,

Do you really suppose that a very short YouTube trailer of Innocence of Muslims actually started all of this? Or was this implanted, by the White House and or the Secretary of State, as a distraction, 'a way out' from the hatred for current US foreign policy.

Considering this is an election year I am willing to bet that the White House used the idiotic movie as their choice to rile Muslims in Libya, to create a riot scene, to cover up a well-planned attack on the Embassy in Libya and it got way out of hand; now it's gone viral.

The Obama administrations admission of erring on Libya and Egypt is quite obviously being swept under the "false flag" carpeting.
