FILE - In this Sept. 11, 2012 file photo, protesters destroy an American flag pulled down from the U.S. embassy in Cairo, Egypt, during a protest of a film deemed offensive of Islam. 2012 was a year of storms, of raging winds and rising waters, but also broader turbulence that strained our moorings.
