Anti-Islam Film and Attacks on US Embassies

I don't post a lot of political commentary but I wanted to give wide audience to one thing I saw today.

Clearly it's a tragic situation with the loss of life of our consular staff due to a (shoddily-made, by all accounts) film that smeared Islam. Here, we have a broad freedom of speech that allows for one opinionated person to spread their thoughts to anyone who'll listen; there, I suspect it may be a tacit assumption that if someone is distributing a film it must be government reviewed since that's how things are done.

But it's important to remember that Libyans are not one thought and opinion, just as Americans are not one thought and opinion.
