The week was filled with continued aftermath of the deadly 9-11 protests in North Africa. There are still Muslims — mostly in Asia — holding anti-American demonstrations and blaming them on the YouTube clip of “Innocence of Muslims.” (See last week’s Week in Review for how it all started.)

Next week should be a big news week as the nations will each get an opportunity to address the United Nations General Assembly.
