According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday, President Obama has seen his approval ratings on foreign policy drop 5 percent since last month, as anti-American violence and protests at U.S. embassies have spread across the globe over last week. The Administration's insistance in assessing that these events are primarily the result of outrage in the Arab World towards an anti-Islam video made by American filmmakers, has resulted in further criticism.
On Wednesday, the U.S. temporarily shut down the Indonesian consulate in Medan after Muslim protesters reached nearly 300 outside the building for a third straight day of demonstrations. Protesters in Jakarta burned an American flag and pictures of Obama on Monday, where they eventually clashed with police sending at least 10 police officers to the hospital after they were pelted with rocks and attacked with bamboo sticks.
In addition to continued protests now spreading across the globe, reports from the ground in Benghazi have emerged that contradict the sequence of events that the White House has given for what happened before the death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens.
With many questions still left unanswered about what we are seeing in these protests, Green Beret and Master Sergeant Terry Schappert, and former CIA Officer Mike Baker appeared on "Wilkow!" Wednesday to discuss.
