Today’s edition of quick hits:
* Cairo: “Egyptian protesters scaled the walls of the United States Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and pulled down the American flag during a demonstration over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted the Prophet Muhammad, witnesses said.”
* Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seems pretty unhappy about the Obama administration’s reluctance to draw “red lines” over Iran’s disputed nuclear program.
* For all of his occasional goofiness, Vice President Biden’s 9/11 comments in Shanksville, Pa., were quite touching. David Kurtz had a good item on this.
