Ambassador Chris Stevens was considered a hero who helped liberate Libya from Moammar Gadhafi, but he died last night in an armed attack in Benghazi, the first such incident of its kind in 20 years. Three others were killed along with him. The US embassy in Cairo was also beset by protesters after a film, ridiculing the Prophet Mohammed, appeared on YouTube with Arabic subtitles. The film was produced in the US by a man claiming to be a developer in Los Angeles with dual US and Israeli citizenship. He's told the Associated Press that 100 Jewish donors provided $5 million. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have condemned the incidents, but Mitt Romney is criticizing the Administration for its response.
