White House National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor confirmed on Friday that the administration had reached out to Google, which owns YouTube, to review whether the video is in line with the company's terms of use.

But Google rebuffed that request, concluding that the video did not violate the rules banning violent and pornographic content.

The company temporarily blocked the video in Libya and Egypt, but it is still available in other countries.
