Russia: Russia and the United States should cooperate the fight against terrorism, Russi.an Foreign Minister
Sergei Lavrov said September. The death Ambassador Libya Christopher Stevens highlights the
need for joint efforts between the two countries, along with the entire international
commu~ty, combating
terrorism all its manifestations, Lavrov said.

foray through the gathering area, during the early morning September Cairo. Egyptian police
military other security personnel were present.
Had the Mursi government begun deliver its promises more jobs, theoretically, the unemployed and
under-employed youth would have been asleep anticipation going work. The unemployment rate for
men under about 50%.
~tis negative commentary about the job creation accomplishments the Mursi government date that
many men have nothing Cairo but vent their frustrations. Egypt there penalty for .destroying
foreign embassy, but criticism President Mursi criminal offence. That explains why Egyptian men would
judge they could attack the embassy, when their real target should have been the Mursi government.
The protestors said, paraphrase, that they understand the has freedom speech; the needs
understand that they have freedom action. Theirs claim justify lawlessness granted the Mursi
government long the violence not turned against Mursi.
What important that the Mursi government has not denounced the violence. The and the
president are vowing bring justice the killers Libya, but the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood government
has made comment apology. Instead, Mursis reaction urge the punish the filmmaker.
Comment: There only trailer the film, film yet, Mursi has not seen nor have most the protestors Egypt and Libya. The riots are flash mobs, arranged and manipulated others.
Ambassador Aillle Patterson, the Ambassador Egypt, experienced her April Glaspie moment yesterday
when she blamed Americans instead Egyptians for attacking, storming and desecrating the Embassy
Cairo and the Flag.
Old hands will remember, April Glaspie, who was rising star the State Departments constellation

Having worked closely with officials for decade the struggle and war against Iran, Saddam understood
iliat everytnmg after llielJlaspie tarK was plausiolecleiiiaoifityl)y USPreSioenrBusn,4
Glaspie misunderstood and misjudged the Iraqi leadership and the situation Iraq. Pattersons operations the Embassy Cairo bespeak comparable misjudgment the Egyptian Arab situation, its volatility and the
depth anti-American sentiment.
She did not permit Marine guards carry live ammunition, according USMC blogs. Thus she neutralized
any military capability that was dedicated preserve her life and protect the Embassy. this respect, she did not defend sovereign territory and betrayed her oath office. She neutered the
Marines posted defend the embassy, trusting the Egyptians over the Marines.
She apparently judges that Egyptian President Mursi spearheads democracy and new civil order, despite the
mounting evidence that Mursi disregards interests, cavorts with enemies, budding authoritarian ruler
who disdains parliament and does not honor the basic obligations diplomatic agreements and the Geneva
conventions.
Readers, definition, whenever embassy any country overrun locals any country, everyone
knows that .the ambassador and senior staff must replaced.
Timing
Readers also should remember that definition the time for official government protest for attack embassy always when rioters attack deface the embassy compound itself, long before they violate
penetrate the sovereign territory deface the Flag. Not nine hours later and not when the details
become clear. Then too late take action keep embassy :from burning protect American
diplomats. The objective safety, more than knowledge.
When foreign videos showed rioters the walls the Embassy and.tearing apart the Flag the
early evening September, the time for strong official protest and angry telephone calls Mursi had
already passed.
Every student international affairs and international diplomacy knows this. Every experienced foreign policy
staff and every competent journalist knows this. But not this State Department and not this administration
and not mainstream news services. The simply failed defend itself. bears repeating: apologies never mollify criminals. Only law abiding citizens believe such baloney. Criminals
consider apologies acts submission, especially foreign cultures.

When NightWatch wrote last night, every news channel carried video footage the violation the
Embassy; the destruction the Embassys flag; the raising the Islamic flag not the Qaida flag, mind
you and the burning the flag. earlier era, less politically correct, old time professionals would have called this clientisis falling love

Embassy staff Cairo has it, based public, twitter and facebook postings.
Final note, most less-developed countries the world, from Morocco Indonesia, one believes the press free government control. There free press any those countries. Thus their leaders, analysts and
others disbelieve the press free government control. They mirror-image their own conditions and
project them onto the US.
