Dr. Pipes

It is just shocking that the LA Times seems to be endorsing censorship in this article by Sarah Chayes http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/commentary/la-oe-chayes-innocence-of-muslims-first-amendment-20120918,0,3112718.story and indeed this must be the most stupid op-ed article that I have ever read in the LA Times and i will leave it to lawyers to dissect Brandenburg v. Ohio because it seems to be beyond Ms. Chayes

Ms Chayes seems to be clueless and is reversing cause and effect. I do believe that salafists wanted to attack the embassy in Cairo in order to demand the freedom of the terrorist so called Shiekh abd al-Rahman of the 1993 attack on the world trade center in NYC and they had to find a reason and all it takes is to check youtube and you will find a reason with so much anti-islam material on youtube and in this case it happens to be a poorly made video. And what better date for such attack other than 9/11/2012?

Now Ms Chayes is telling us that if this video did not exit then we would not have had the attack on the embassy in Cairo or the murder of ambassador Christopher Stevens. How stupid and how insane
