Where are the moderate Muslims decrying the embassy attacks?
I agree with the premise of your editorial "Romney has a point" (Sept. 13), that President Barack Obama "failed to explain a core American value" of freedom of speech. However, there was much more lacking in the official administration response. U.S. consulates and embassies are U.S. sovereign territory, so an attack on them, much less the wanton murder of our ambassador, is an act of war. Presidential and State Department responses, therefore, must be framed with this fundamental understanding.
