President Barack Obama's statement that Sony Pictures Entertainment should not have given into hackers ["Obama: Pulling movie 'a mistake,' " News, Dec. 20] was nothing more than hypocrisy.

For days in 2012, the president led the nation to believe that a movie caused the storming of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, and the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. So why now would it be hard to believe that a movie could cause similar retaliation on U.S. soil, or anywhere else for that matter?
