Jon Stewart in the middle of international incident

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Jon Stewart finds himself in the middle of an international incident. It started when the U.S. Embassy in Cairo tweeted a link to Stewart’s monologue mocking Egypt’s president. That offended many Egyptians. The embassy then deleted its entire Twitter account before restoring it without the link. That upset the State Department in Washington. A department spokeswoman says the embassy shouldn’t have taken down the whole site instead of just deleting the link.
