Middle East Turmoil: Official killed in Libyan protests; Protesters storm U.S. Embassy in Cairo

An American killed in Libya Tuesday, according to a Libyan interior ministry official, a result of a day of violence against america in the middle east. Armed men stormed a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya setting it on fire after a protest against an american-produced movie they say insults the prophet Mohammed.

This was just hours after Egyptian protestors scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy in Cairo and tore down the American flag. The protesters tried to raise a black flag with the words "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger."

The incidents in Cairo and Benghazi are just the latest examples of anti-American sentiment in the Middle East.  But what do they mean for America going forward.
