“…that’s not a spontaneous movie protest; that’s an act of war…”

“…and better planned and executed than the dying superpower’s response to it.”

When it comes to a flailing, blundering superpower, I am generally wary of ascribing to malevolence what is more often sheer stupidity and incompetence. For example, we’re told that, because the consulate in Benghazi was designated as an “interim facility,” it did not warrant the level of security and protection that, say, an embassy in Scandinavia would have.

Perhaps sadder still is the appearance that the Obama administration, particularly the State Department and the media actually believe their assertions that this is all about an Internet movie NOBODY saw until after the events in Libya.

For Obama it’s hubris, for the Administration it’s pure incompetence – for the media it’s dereliction of duty.
