Who's More Trustworthy...Obama or al-Zawahri?

CAIRO - The leader of al-Qaida has urged Muslims to wage holy war against the United States and Israel over a film that insulted Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
Ayman al-Zawahri praised as "honest and zealous" demonstrators who breached the U.S Embassy in Cairo and attackers who stormed the U.S. "embassy" in Benghazi in violence linked to the film. The American ambassador and three others died in the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in the Libyan city.
So...once again...the Cairo and Benghazi attacks had absolutely nothing to do with the hack film on YouTube, "Innocence of Muslims."  But, the White House pushed that connection to protect their own exposed posterior on foreign policy weaknesses and miscues.  The Muslim world picked up on the words of the White House (i.e. Barack Obama) and the State Department (i.e. Hillary Clinton) and used it as an excuse to destroy, kill, shout, and riot.

Now, al-Qaida is trying to use this falsley generated catalyst as the spark to wage Holy War. 

That's not what pisses me off about this article, however.  I expect the president and the Secretary of State to act stupidly, since they are both operating well above their pay grade.  Neither was/is experienced enough to be in the role.   What truly disturbs me is that the Associated Press publishes this story and never comments that Ayman al-Zawahri is pushing a false narrative concerning the motivation behind the Cairo and Benghazi attacks.  They didn't address this because it makes the president look weak and dishonest and they would have to explain where the false narrative originated.  They can't do that...there's an election to win.
