Response to dipsydoodle (Reply #6)

9. The protest was a diversion from the real attack. That was planned and coordinated in

two locations, and was so effective that two American security personnel who arrived in a US military helicopter were killed. This is not just a case of one guy with an RPG who just happened to be incensed and took a pot-shot at the Consulate. There was sustained and accurate mortar fire on the escape convoy as they neared the "safe house," which suggests an ambush planned with inside information, probably provided by someone in the local security detail.

The stupid video and fuss made about it by Salaafist clerics on an Egyptian broadcast was only part of a chain of events.
