The 9/11 Anniversary Attacks in Libya and Egypt
by Matthew RJ Brodsky
ABC News Channel 8 "Afternoon Report"
September 12, 2012
A day after the 9/11 anniversary attacks in the Middle East, Matthew RJ Brodsky appears on "Afternoon Report" and discusses the state-sanctioned demonstrations in Egypt, and the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. He downplays the role of the YouTube video that depicts Muhammad on the demonstrations, questions why the Libyan security situation was unacceptable, and explained how this would impact Middle East politics. He also discusses Israeli red lines when it comes to Iran's nuclear program and deflects the idea that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is trying to insert himself in American politics by overtly supporting Mitt Romney's candidacy.
