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.
