During the past several years the United States government has been actively assisting democratic forces in the Middle East to gain power. Republicans complain President Obama has not done enough to foster democracy in the Middle East. Romney andRyan fail to understand that it is NOT governments which are behind recent riots but militant Muslims who, undoubtedly, are aided by al-Qaeda. Ironically, assisting democratic groups in this nation only infuriates fundamentalist Muslims.
Secretary Hillary Clinton made clear the opposition of the US government to the infamous video which sparked anger. “To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible.” As of this date there was no sign of an impending riot, at least that is the view of American intelligence. Of course, this is not the first time Intelligence was not very intelligent.
