Skip to comments.Benghazigate produces a whiff of tyranny
Posted on 10/29/2012 9:16:21 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
In our posts about Benghazigate, we have focused on (1) the failure of the Obama administration to provide needed (and requested) security in Benghazi, (2) the Obama administrations refusal to call for military assistance when our personnel were under deadly attack, and (3) the adminstrations unwillingness to speak honestly about the attack in the days following it and, it appears, even until this day.
Bill Otis identifies a fourth issue, albeit one thats related to the third: the Department of Justices persecution of the producer of an internet video that offends Muslims. The persecution consists of charging the producer with a probabtion violation.
Based on his decades of service as a federal prosecutor, Bill tells me that that probation violators routinely get a pass on violations far more serious and suggestive of renewed criminality than making a perfectly legal (and, some would think, First Amendment-protected) video. But the producer of this particular video was hustled off to the slammer in no time.
The governments motive is not difficult to discern. As Bill explains, Team Obama wanted to maintain, and embellish upon, its campaign narrative that anti-American terrorists have been largely vanquished, and that the attack Benghazi was not terrorism, but rather a spontaneous response to an internet video mocking Islam. Hence, the use of our criminal justice system to imprison the producer of the video on the pretext of violating the terms of his probation, which included an agreement not to use the internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.
In any other context, the imprisonment of a non-violent probationer for exercising his right to make a non-pornographic internet video would have leftists screaming about tyranny. In most instances this howling would be baseless. But where, as here, the motive for jailing the probationer is so transparently political, the word tyranny does come to mind.
Thanks for posting this. Always seemed like he was singled out for some serious scapegoating.
It is absolutely, positively, NO doubt.....tyrannical. It’s not just Obama, that sick bastard. Think of all the apparatchiks who had to be in place to accomplish that arrest. Think of their robotic mindsets. Imagine the chain of command, down to the local level, that led to that man’s arrest......all in a pathetic, Constitution-ripping attempt to cover their political asses.
If we don’t seriously bounce everyone with a (D) next to their name on Nov. 6th, then we’re not only a nation of idiots.....we’re well and truly f**ked.
Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch
L.A. man began cooperating after 2009 fraud bust
Interesting that Nakoula's websites track back to connections with 0bama.
Interesting that Nakoula's partner in the film was a palestinian Muslim with terrorist connections who was also watched by the Feds for three decades but never arrested and frequently bailed out by the Feds.
Nikoula and Eiad may have made the film.
Someone else has been handling distribution and promotions.
Only the final one was forwarded, by persons unknown, to Sheikh Khalid Abdullah the cleric in Cairo who aired it on TV. Nakoula, the maker of the original film, was not the one who uploaded the final version, Innocence of Muslims, to the internet.
You can hear some interesting things about the timeline of all these iterations of "the movie" in the Youtube video linked below. Start at 9:30 and watch to 16:00 for the meat of that.
Brian Lilley: The MSM is lying about the muslim riots
Interviews on the streets of Cairo. 'Video' had nothing to do with protests and attack.
Yep, he was the patsy. who will it be NEXT time???
Ok, what was it? Just a 911 thing, or was there an attempt that got stopped?
I read that Hillary personally told one of the family members of one of the SEALs killed at Benghazi that she personally would see to it that the film maker would be taken care of. This is my paraphrase because I cannot recall the specific words the Hildabeast used, but this is close to what she said. Now that we know the film absolutely was not the cause of the attack or “riots”, why has not this man been released from jail. Instead, he is to come to arraignment or trial in a couple of weeks - obviously after the election. Charges probably will be dropped. Apart from a very few others, I hear no one raising this issue of tyranny.
They explain it better than I can in the video but there were a couple of issues. One was to put pressure on the U.S. to release the blind sheik. The other was just anger over the drone killing of some other sheik or cleric. I forget his name. If you saw some videos of the Cairo embassy attack you might have also noticed some Guy Fawkes masks in the crowd. Now what Arab Muslim would be wearing one of those? Hmmm?
According to Charlie Woods, Ty Woods father, Hillbilly told him they were going to have Nakoula arrested. Just as direct as that. He’s a political prisoner plain and simple.
They were trying to restore a catholic monarchy?
You’re right. Makoula is a political prisoner
Free Nakoula Now!
LOL Yeah, that’s the ticket!
Terrorists say "0bama we are all Osama!"
This film hits the theaters Dec. 19th.
A film by Kathryn Bigelow w/assistance from the 0bama administration.
Lives in Beverly Hills, CA. Net worth $14 million dollars.
Oh, I forgot about the Cairo crowds chanting “0bama we are all Osama!” There was another thing they were mad about.
wouldn’t it save time if we list the things Muslims AREN’T mad about!? Crazy Muthers!
So, in essence. 911 was an anniversary attack and obama was too stupid to protect our assets in hostile moooosllliiimmm nations. Libya was special because of the gun running?
Well, yes, in the greater scheme of things it probably is true that they were mad about the ‘video’ even if only one tenth of one percent of them had ever heard about it. They just needed Hillbilly to mention it so they would remember how mad it was making them. They’re mad!
I've done my part.
I can’t say for sure that they were running guns, although it’s looking pretty good for that, but, yes, he was too stupid to think that Americans might be attacked by muzzies on 9-11. He was also too cowardly to do anything when they did.
and the American Embassy in Tripoli warned that Libyan Officials declared a state of maximum threat a week prior.
Guess that message to the White House got sent to the spam folder too...
How many individuals have died directly because of 0 since his inauguration?
Has it been established yet this person's real name is Nakoula? This guy has no history of film making, so what was his real intent? Personally I do not believe for one minute we have been told the real story behind this guy or his late in life career change of making offensive Muslim films. WHO is he fronting? I do not consider him a political prisoner, I consider him a willing activists. IF he were protesting being in prison we would have Gloria or Nancy spending precious air time championing his cause.
Yes, that was 100% due to 0coward, Hillbilly and MSM advertising.
AFAIK his real name is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. I don’t know how he can protest or get MSM support when he’s locked up in a FedMob prison and not allowed any outside contact. I don’t know why you think anyone in the MSM has even tried to get his story. They don’t want to do anything that would hurt their Messiah.
Why is the Coptic Christian filmmaker partners in crime with Coptic Christian hater?
If you haven't read at least this link from my posts you should.
Why was Stevens last appointment of his life, with the Turks?. Any public comment on that?
I haven’t heard one. The admin is being kind of tight lipped about the details of it all.
Ah this guy made a so called offensive film while claiming to be an Israeli Jew, and solicited an American Christian preacher to promote his offensive video. And Obama and Clinton knew this before any of those spontaneous mobs began reacting. Are we even sure he is still in country? Is he even an American citizen?
Please show me a link to your source that says Nakoula ever claimed to be an Israeli Jew or that he ever had any contact with an American Christian preacher promoting the film. Link please!

“It was apparently made by an Israeli-American businessman and backed by Terry Jones, the fundamentalist pastor who previously threatened to hold public burnings of the Koran. A version of the film, which is in English, has been dubbed into Egyptian Arabic and shown on the website of an Egyptian Coptic Christian businessman based in America.”

WASHINGTON/BENGHAZI, Libya | Wed Sep 12, 2012 7:49pm EDT
“The “Innocence of Muslims,” the film blamed for provoking the violence, was the work of a California-based Israeli filmmaker Sam Bacile, according to a report by the Associated Press.”
“Bacile, who described himself to AP as an Israeli Jew, spoke to the agency from hiding on Tuesday. He said that the film, which cost $5 million to make, was intended as a political statement and was financed by more than 100 Jewish donors.”
“General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, took the unusual step of telephoning a radical Florida Pastor, Terry Jones, and asking him to withdraw his support for the film. Earlier provocative acts by Jones, like publicly burning a Koran, had sparked Muslim unrest.”
Thank you. I appreciate the response. I will read them as soon as I get back on but right now it’s got to be lights out for me. Dead tired tonight.
“Bacile told the AP he was an Israeli-born, 56-year-old, Jewish writer and director. But a Christian activist involved in the film project, Steve Klein, told AP on Wednesday that Bacile was a pseudonym and that he was Christian.
Klein had told the AP on Tuesday that the filmmaker was an Israeli Jew who was concerned for family members who live in Egypt.
Officials in Israel said there was no record of Bacile as an Israeli citizen.
When the AP initially left a message for Bacile, Klein contacted the AP from another number to confirm the interview request was legitimate then Bacile called back from his own cell phone.
Klein said he didn't know the real name of the man he called “Sam,” who came to him for advice on First Amendment issues.
About 15 key players from the Middle East — from Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Pakistan, Iran and a couple Coptic Christians from Egypt — worked on the film, Klein said.”
I am still looking for that AP article, but not finding it yet.
“The other was just anger over the drone killing of some other sheik or cleric. I forget his name.”
yahya al libi. He was the reason for the zawahiri and gadahn videos calling for death to Stevens and the specific attack on the ‘consulate’ in Benghazi.
Alrighty. You don’t mind if I just call him Achmed the dead Raghead so I don’t have to remember or pronounce that do you? LOL ;^)
NAKOULAS MOTIVES The liberal media cared more about blaming the entire Muhammad film fiasco on a Christian.
I then obtained a radio interview that this supposed Nakoula gave in Arabic during which he stated that he is not Christian but a secular liberal. He was asked, What is your position on the Jewish and the Christian faith? Nakoula responded, I have no calling for these religions.
Nakoula, who was recruited by Eiad, also told reporters that he was an Israeli Jew living in California named Sam Bacile but the film's consultant, Steve Klein, said the man was using a pseudonym (fake name of an Israeli Jew) which is exactly what Eiad did for years
Now Obama and Clinton knew all about this man and the Terry Jones connection, before the so called spontaneous protest ever began and they USED this fake film maker's libelous claims smearing Christians and Jews as picking on the Muslim religion. This is telling in WHO is being watched and used in their operation to criminalize anti-Muslim speech. A promised made to his new Egyptian leadership? I also think had things gone as planned the option on the table was to return that blind criminal on humanitarian grounds as demonstration of 'good will'.
Both Obama and Clinton declared their innocence in having anything to do with the making of this film, as if anybody in this world would think for a minute they had any part in its making and outcome.
And Obama and Clinton got caught with their pants down in Benghazi, and attempted to blame Christians and an Israeli Jew for making an offensive video against the Muslim religion. It is beyond twisted and evil.
I firmly believe Obama fully intended to use the so called spontaneous outrage over the fake video to criminalizing anti-religious speech. The Benghazi attack and the murders of four Americans took that intent off the political map for the time being. It did not take long to filter out the lies Obama and his crew told in regard to what really happened at Obama's Benghazi mission. (weapons depot for his conscripts to fight in Syria?)
It's easy to dismiss Montagraph as some kind of flake but I think it's a little harder to dismiss the information he presents. And there is also this guy's parallel investigation...
Wish I could spend the day working on this but I will read all you've got when I get back and work with you to put as much of this together as we can. I hope you'll read all the links I put in above if you haven't already. The only way we're going to find any seeds of truth in this is to sift through a mountain of chaff.
You have a good day too. Keep fighting the good fight!
No doubt, in Obama and the Hildabeast’s mind, there is a “Lubyanka” prison in many of our futures.
I am reminded of the imprisonment of Zhores Medvedev, a Soviet scientist who objected to his communications with foreign scientists being monitored and censored (among other issues). Medvedev was sent to a mental institution and diagnosed as schizophrenic in 1970. The Soviets used this technique to silence many dissenters. Looks like Hillary is taking a page out of their book.
We’re Americans though not psychologically beaten Russian peasants. Try that there here and there will be a guerrilla insurgency war like the world has never seen before.
As there should be.
I hate the whole idea of it but, yes, that is as it should be.
