The day after Tuesday's attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya we spoke with Hassan Shibly. He’s executive director of the Tampa chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Four Americans have died, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, following riots by Libyans upset at a low-budget film critical of Islam.

We heard audio of Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) suggesting Al-Qaeda could be responsible for the attack.

We also touched on the ongoing effort by conservative Christian groups to ban Muslim guest speakers in Hillsborough County schools. It started when Shibly was invited to a New Tampa high school last year. The controversy came to a head yesterday.
