Film protests

I understand why people get upset if someone makes a video insulting their religion. What puzzles me is how attacking US embassies is supposed to help. Given the secrecy surrounding the production of the video, it seems unlikely that the US government could have stopped it, even if they didn't have a constitutional protection for free speech. Surely if anything, this behaviour gives succour to those who seek to portray Islam in a negative light?

And from what I hear, many Americans came right back with exactly the same mistake of blaming the Libyan and Egyptian governments for the awful raid and meaningless riot. People blaming whole cultures for things seems awful but a constant battle to prevent it :(
