44. What "those people" (overseas Muslims) don't understand

is the type of freedom of speech that exists here that prevents the government from interfering in free expression, at least theoretically. In their countries, governments have always approved of or suppressed freedom of expression. They think any crackpot here has expressed himself with the cooperation of the government, not merely the non interference of government.

That's why embassies and consulates are hot spots for demonstrations. They all think the government had a hand in producing that video because they've never known anything else.
