The anti-Islam filmmaker, an Israeli, has gone into hiding in California after the protests in Egypt and the killing for four Americans, including the ambassador, in Libya. Naturally, our old friend, Pastor Terry Jones in Florida, also involved. Meanwhile, Romney has charged that Obama sympathizes with the attackers and GOP boss @Reince tweets much the same, sparking outrage--but expect this to be a GOP and wingnut talking point for the next 55 days. For now, other GOP leaders have simply condemened the attacks but not Obama, but that's coming and will be talk radio and TV focus today.
The filmmaker, AP notes, remains "defiant." He still calls Islam a "cancer" and blamed the deaths on poor security at embassies. Afghanistan just banned YouTube so video cannot be seen.
