And the film, which had been on YouTube for a considerable time, was found and used as a pretext. But again, it doesn't matter what is in this film, and how bad it is. Nothing justifies murder.

"This was a well- planned, well-targeted event. No doubt about it," Rogers said.
Earlier reports said the Americans were killed when a mob of protesters and gunmen overwhelmed the US Consulate in Benghazi, setting fire to it in outrage over a film that ridicules Islam's Prophet Muhammad....
