Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) Wednesday that the film that touched off a firestorm of controversy in the Muslim world, including the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and the death of the U.S. ambassador to Libya, “is not, never, and never will be an excuse for violence.”
“What we need to keep communicating is as deplorable as we find that film to be, it is not, never, and never will be an excuse for violence and for the senseless killed we saw in Benghazi and other places,” she said.
“And we need that voice to come loud and clear, not just from Washington, but from the country as a whole internationally, and it needs to come from people of all faiths,” Napolitano added.
The movie, “The Innocence of Muslims” claims that Muhammad was a fraud. There’s also controversy surrounding who made the film. Initially, a man named Sam Bacile claimed he wrote and directed it, but the Associated Press reports that he has made other claims that appear to be false, and he has gone into hiding.
