RE “HOW could Chris Stevens die because of a YouTube clip?” by Farah Stockman (BostonGlobe.com, Sept. 12): I have not seen the video that sparked the riots and violence that occurred in Egypt, Libya, and elsewhere, but I have no doubt that it is reprehensible. However, I have seen numerous anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Christian, and anti-Semitic videos that originate in Muslim countries, which are freely available on the Internet, and which frequently feature high government officials and religious leaders. Substantial numbers of these are actually designed for use as educational materials by schoolchildren.
There needs to be much more scrutiny and public attention given to those materials. Americans need to be kept fully informed about the truly dangerous world they are living in.
