The American flag, which was flying at half mast to mark the 9/11 attacks, was replaced by an Islamist banner. Thousands of protesters had gathered outside the embassy.

I've read that warning shots were fired in Egypt, and that may have helped keep the crowd at bay, but where was the protection for our consulate in Libya?
I'm guessing these protestors don't see the irony in using violence as a response to a video that calls Islam dangerous.
