Skip to comments.Anti-muslim pastor [Jones] gets attention, not credit for deadly Libya attack [story grows]

.....Citing sources in Benghazi,the think tank[Quilliam] said: "(W)e have reason to believe that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi came to avenge the death of Abu Yaya al-Libi,al-Qaida's second in command killed a few months ago."
A day before the attack,the leader of al-Qaida,Ayman al-Zawahiri,urged Libyans to avenge the killing,...roughly 20 militants were present,prepared for military assault with rocket-propelled grenade launchers that do not typically appear at peaceful protests.
Nonetheless,much of the blame for the protests was aimed at the poorly-made film Innocence of Muslims, directed and produced by Sam Bacile,who told the Associated Press he was an Israeli-American real estate developer who raised $5 million from Jewish donors to make the movie.
But questions quickly surfaced about Bacile's identity. The Atlantic reported Wednesday that one of the film's consultants,Steve Klein,said Bacile is not Israeli,and most likely not Jewish, and that the name is a pseudonym.
"I don't know that much about him,...I can tell you this for sure,the state of Israel is not involved, Terry Jones is not involved. . . . I would suspect this is a disinformation campaign."
That seemed to square with the opinion of Emad Mekay,a lecturer at StanfordUniversity and an investigative journalism fellow at[UC-Berkley],who just returned from a three-month trip to Egypt.
"The protests in Egypt were sparked by allegations made by U.S.-based extremist ChristianCoptic activists that they produced an inflammatory film that they were planning to release on 9/11,"he said in a released statement. "It is not clear why they took credit for the movie. The U.S.-based extremist Copts were repeatedly on Egyptian TV and newspapers owned by former Mubarak regime figures, outing their presence in the U.S. as one reason why they succeeded in producing the movie. They were being quoted extensively on their alleged movie launch which inflamed feelings."........

...........This movie trailer is the flimsiest of pretexts that they exploited to mobilize a mob and then use it as a cover for political violence, Mr. Moosa said. People in Egypt and Libya are sufficiently literate to know the difference between something the U.S. government sponsors and something an individual artist does. But U.S. credibility is at an all-time low in the Muslim world, or sufficiently low, for people to exploit it to commit heinous crimes............
One for the Classic Understatement file.
There you have it right there. Let's Hope Beck, Rush, Hannity, Drudge, Malkin, Levin, etc are also suspicious of disinformation. Blaming some movie nobody has ever heard of deflects blame away from hussein and it is the disastrous foreign policy of hussein that is directly responsible.
Blaming a movie is also convenient in that it provides the left with another reason to blame America, blame Israel, blame Christians and blame Jews.
Al quaeda baby, we got hoodwinked again.
Hertz: My god! Do we really suck, or is this guy really that good? (from Shoot ‘em Up)
The trailer was hilarious! Ricky Bobby as mudhamhead (Pigs be inseminating him)!
Obama’s team is monitoring the protests and gets the info hours before. How can we cover this up (they have an election to win and masters to please)? The movie becomes a convenien scapegoat, but they’re 20th century liars.
The Internet has caught them again. Welcome to the 21st century.
.........to a RED HERRING!!!!
To the extent that these films and burnt queeer-annes show up these subhumans for what they are; cram REALITY into our senses.........
They do GOOD, Not evil.
It is LONG PAST time for the civilized world to act.
Where the heck do you get an RPG? They need gun control big time.
You can expect a call from the top Obama bootlicker at the Pentagon, General* Dempsey, and other brass from the Usurper's army.
I'd love nothing better than to have some REMF Chairborne Ranger calling me and trying to intimidate me.
Is he anti-Muslim or anti-Islam? I think the latter.
.......”Jones called the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, devastating, tragic but he wasnt responsible for the actions of others.
What we did was exercise our First Amendment rights, he said. We spoke out against Islam, which we will continue to do no matter what.....
Scouting revealed an unprotected embassy & easy target.
Created a diversion of muslim outrage and protest.
Amid the chaos, the terrorist stormed the embassy practically unchallanged, chased down the ambassador, most likely killed him and set the embassy on fire.
Obama & Hillary Clinton have blood on their hands for not protecting our diplomat & staff.

can’t be repeated enough. Media blaming Romney. Some even on this site blaming Bush.
