What ABOUT that anti-Muslim video that supposedly triggered the murders in Benghazi? [View all]

Is anybody investigating who funded creation of that hateful video that triggered riots around the world? As I recall there was some initial investigative journalism that showed it was funded by a shady group that seemed to trace back to the Koch brothers.

The Republicans are falling all over themselves blaming Susan Rice and President Obama for "lying" about what caused the murders of our ambassador and other diplomatic staff in Benghazi. Susan Rice's testimony - the source of all this hysteria on the part of the Republicans - was that the hateful video made in California triggered riots, and then much worse things happened.

Why are we going along with the Republicans in their dismissing of the bigoted video as one of the triggers of the violence? Every time the "preacher" down in Florida burns a Koran there are riots among fundamentalist Muslims around the word. There are riots when cartoons are published that mock Islam. It is not surprising that the bigoted video triggered riots in Libya and elsewhere.

Who financed that video? Was it done deliberately in order to stir up violence? If it was the Koch brothers, is it surprising that the Republicans are doing everything they can to deflect attention away from the video?
