"It's not enough to simply respond to something that offends you by protecting an embassy; we have to put an end to people stirring up division and stirring up crowds in ways that, frankly, are not just harmful to the United States but ultimately are going to be deeply harmful to these countries," Deputy National Security Advisor, White House, Ben Rhodes, told reporters hours after US President Barack Obama addressed the UN General Assembly.

"If we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass.

If we are serious about these ideals, we must speak honestly about the deeper causes of the crisis, because we face a choice between the forces that would drive us apart and the hopes that we hold in common," Obama said in his address to the UNGA in New York.
