The deaths of the officials in Libya was likely not an issue of freedom of speech. When Bin Laden was killed, his second in command took over, and a new guy became second in command. The new guy was named Abu Al Libi, called the "Libyan Lion". He was killed by the US in June of this year - after his death, some Libyan militants undertook some vandalism of the US Consulate, set some things on fire, etc etc etc.
Flash forward to this week. Every year on 9/11 Al Qaeda does some sort of propaganda thing for its followers, and this year they did a 40 minute video celebrating Al Libi as a martyr slain by the infidels etc. etc. etc. Unsurprisingly, Libyan militants again went after the US consulate shortly thereafter - this time they killed people.
So don't chalk the whole thing up to some dumb youtube video.
