Yesterday embassies in Egypt and Libya attacked. Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, was killed. Secretary of State Clinton said, "there is never any justification for violent acts of this kind." Why did this happen? Apparently a few found an amateurish video criticizing Islam and its prophet too much to bear.

I am not sure what would "fix" this, and I suppose no one does and everyone has their own idea. But I am certain that another war won't change anything.

Hear, Hear - 

3) Sorry, but neither breaches of our compound or angry messages will dissuade us from defending freedom of speech AND criticizing bigotry

Calls for hate speech laws are not in order.  Sorry, freedom of speech and the press are our values and we are not about to give them up to privilege anyone or any group.
