Obama acknowledges Islamists' excuse to murder

A personal opinion:
Check out this 2-minute video of Obama's statement about the killing of the US Ambassador and other personnel in Libya. The Islamist murderers purportedly blamed America for a film they said insulted the Prophet Mohammad.

In particular, note Obama's comment commencing at the 30-second mark:
"...Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths and rejects all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others ...but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence ...none..."
If there is truly no justification for this "type of senseless violence", then why mention respect of all faiths while condemning the attacks?
U.S. government officials said the Benghazi attack may have been planned in advance and Reuters reports one U.S. official as saying that "It bears the hallmarks of an organized attack".
If there had been no "insulting" video about Islam, these Islamist would have no doubt found another excuse to murder on the anniversary of the Sept 11 attack.
Why does Obama acknowledge and publicise the Islamist murderers' excuse to murder?

An initial statement released by the U.S. Embassy in Egypt, which also came under siege Tuesday when protesters shredded an American flag and appeared to replace it with a pro-Islam banner:
"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims ...Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States... We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."
Romney said in his own statement:
"I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi...It's disgraceful that the Obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."
Around the same time, the White House disavowed the embassy's prior statement ....
