Violent attacks on U.S. embassies have been happening around the globe.
These attacks are in response to a trailer of an anti-Islam film called “The Innocence of Muslims,” which was posted on Youtube by the American user Sam Bacile.
The writer of the film is still unknown. A California ex-convict by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was brought in for questioning by authorities Saturday, but no arrests have been made.
Crew members and actors who made the film firmly state that their voices were dubbed, the title of the movie was originally called “Desert Warrior” and they were completely unaware of the insulting intent of the movie.
Anna Gurjian, an actress in the movie, said, “There was no mention ever by anyone of Muhammad, and no mention of religion during the entire time I was on the set. I am hundred percent certain nobody in the cast and nobody in the U.S. artistic side of the crew knew what was really planned for this ‘Desert Warrior,’” according to The Huffington Post.
On September 11, 2012, the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Libyan protestors set the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on fire. The attack killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, three consulate staff members and as many as 10 Libyans.
The bodies of the Americans were brought back to the U.S. for a ceremonial burial Sept. 14. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both gave speeches about the tragic event.
“They knew the danger and they accepted it,” Obama said. “They didn’t simply embrace the American ideal; they lived it.”
Stevens, ambassador to Libya, was the first ambassador to be killed in the line of duty since 1979. People who knew him described him as charismatic, creative and charming.
Stevens was a part of the council who organized the uprising against Muammar Gadaffi.
“It is especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped save,” Obama said.
This summer, Stevens sent an email to his family stating he had high hopes for the future of Libya.
“He risked his life to stop a tyrant, then gave his life trying to help build a better Libya,” Clinton said. “The world needs more Chris Stevenses.”
Obama also said, “Make no mistake; we will work with the Libyan government to bring justice the killers who attacked our people. This attack will not break the bonds between the United States and Libya.”
The Libyan government has already arrested four protesters and 50 more are being investigated. Libya President Mohammed el-Megaref apologized for the violent protests and for America’s loss.
