Dr. Pipes

In a recent great article by Andrew McCarthy in NRO about the Libya atrocity http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/330318/denying-libya-scandal-andrew-c-mccarthy He tells us what really happened and it was all about the fact that islamists wanted so see the terrorist Shiekh Abd al-Rahman (and the Abd al-Rahman brigade) who is in prison here in the US being set free and sent back to Egypt so he can continue his "little or smaller" jihad! This was as clear as it can be to anyone who watches Arabic language TV or read the Arabic press. Our free press? Our free press is more interseted in telling us the same lie that this badly made video is the cause for thses riots

I'm very surprised that he did not mention anything about a certain Egyptian salafist by the name of Abu islam who was in court because he did burn the Bible http://www.alriyadh.com/net/article/772570 but he is also the "spiritual" leader of the so called Abd al-Rahman Brigade and must be responsible for this atrocity

There is no doubt that the present administration is in disarray about this disaster but all they had to do is to admit the obvious that we here in the US do not make any deals about freedom of speech and that the innocence of Muslims video is not the reason for these criminal rampages by Islamists and that the reason is very clear that terrorists wanted to see another terrorist, Shiekh abd al-Rahman being set free and if indeed Abu islam has anything to do with this crime we should go after him and bring him to justice and they should also admit that this poorly made video had nothing to do with the atrocity in Libya

Would the administration do all of the above? I doubt it very much and it is time for change and get a leader in the White House that care about this country
