On Thursday, Secretary of State Clinton repeated that the U.S. government had nothing to do with the offensive film and condemned a new attack against the U.S. embassy in Yemen.

It’s worth remembering that the opposition research report prepared by John McCain’s campaign for the 2008 Republican primaries where he ran against Romney said that Romney had no substantive foreign policy experience.
Indeed, The New Yorker’s John Cassady analysis of the Libyan crisis is entitled, “Libya Surprise Could Be Death Knell for Romney Campaign.” And that was written on Wednesday, before Romney expanded his foreign policy attack on Obama—and the first arrests of suspected terrorists were made in Libya.
