The anti-Islam movie made by Sam Bacile caused outrage in Libya Tuesday, which led to the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three U.S. Consulate staff members. It was reported Libyan officials said President Obama should arrest and prosecute Bacile.

This raises a question: Is there a misconception on the part of those in Libya and the Muslim world about freedoms in the United States, even on the part of the Libyan leadership?

Could it be possible the average Libyan citizen (and others across the Muslim world) don't understand that freedom of speech prohibits the government from suppressing content some may find offensive?
