    un-sourced garbage. The cat is out of the bag. The administration already admitted it was a terrorist attack.

    Who does not believe that if there was some sort of "exculpatory evidence" Jay Carney would break through prime time tv with a news conference?

    I said it before in another thread early in this story that it was very uncharacteristic for it to be al-Qaeda led and using the 9/11 anniversary as a benchmark timetable. Al-Qaeda never works their attacks that way.

    It is possible that this "group" has some kind of association with al-Qaeda, however.

    It is very different to say " We do not know, we are not sure".

    That was not said. What was said was it was due to a video and a spontaneous uprising.

    Just as the Fort Hood shooting was a drive by shooting.

    Its never about the act, its always the cover up.

    True. AQ are fixated on targeting airliners, hence the disproportionately high levels of air transport security we still see.

    They recognise that blowing up embassies is 'yesterday's news', whereas people still talk about airline attacks decades later. Plus, airline attacks have the 'it could happen to me' fear factor, which other modes of attack tend not to have.
