#1 It's a piece of hack job film that your high school student would get an F for for the quality and content of the presentation. However we are supposedly to have a constitutional right to say anything in this wonderful country.

#2 I still won't use any of their crummy products or services, but you have to wonder if they are still supporting the leftist political dark side in America with the same fervor as they so recently had...

#5 Google is doing what is best for Google. They'll kowtow to China, because that's where they think their biggest market is. They'll restrict access in other places because they either have a market toe-hold in that country or it's yet untapped.
As for the White House, it's either to keep from alienating their customer base, or because it will set a unwanted precedent after Mr. Obama leaves office.

#6 If Google pulls the film, it is immediately forgotten and quickly irrelevant. This is NOT the goal of the current administration. To be an effective distraction and scape goat, the film must continue to simmer and seeth. The film is the foundation of their "spontaneous events" strategy. Take spontaneous away and you must answer some very pressing intelligence questions.

#7 Perhaps Obama should notices that weakness is not respected by Arabs or corporate allies.

#8 Nakoula has been arrested now. Soon he'll ask Youtube to remove the film himself.
Later, his family will be billed for the cost of bullet that kills him.
