The White House has asked YouTube to review the online video that they cited as the spark for demonstrations raging across the Middle East and North Africa.  Reports now say that many of the world wide attacks took place within 15 minutes of each other, indicating coordination rather than "spontaneous" "protests."
The Obama administration is  asking YouTube  to check if it meets their standards. 

"The White House asked YouTube to review the video to see if it was in compliance with their terms of use,"  Jay Carney said. 

It is unknown if the White House has ever intervened on behalf of any other group regarding You Tube or freedom of speech. 

Critics have accused the Obama administration of putting too much focus on the film itself, and faulted the administration for continuing to condemn it. 

Meanwhile, The Associated Press reports that federal probation officials are investigating the California filmmaker linked to the video. He had previously been convicted of financial crimes.   He won't be safe, even on US soil.
