Jessica Yellin, Jim Acosta and Fareed Zakaria discuss attention to foreign policy in the U.S. presidential race after the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya.
The interview with Republican Rogers on State of the Union today was like a pro-Romney Super Pac ad. Talk about using a tragic event for political purposes. Since there were several different groups represented at the protest, obviously a good number of them were there because of the film. It would not be surprizing if another group had more sinister plans and used the film outrage as a cover. Since the protesters numbered in the hundreds to a few thousand at each of the protests around the world, that is a pretty small number in countries with millions of people. It shows that these were small radical groups not representative of their countries. Now that peaceful Libyans are rallying against the militant groups and supporting the US that is a very positive sign. CNN's reporting has been all over the place. It is not reliable to keep quoting "anonymous sources" or high positioned Libyan leaders. How do you know they don't have an agenda? On NBC I heard them say that CNN had said the Ambassafor had written in his journal that he was on a hit list but that his family had doubted that story. Shouldn't CNN wait for reliable and truthful information instead of trying to get a scoop? I also listen to other news outlets, especially the BBC, to get an all around, rational view of the situation.
