US Identifies Anti-Muslim Filmmaker Blamed for Attacks
CBS ^ | 9/13/2012 | Unattributed

Posted on 09/13/2012 1:59:15 PM PDT by mojito

Federal authorities have identified a Coptic Christian in southern California who is on probation after his conviction for financial crimes as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast, a U.S. law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday.

The official said authorities had concluded that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that denigrated Islam and the prophet Muhammad and sparked protests earlier this week in Egypt, Libya and most recently in Yemen. It was not immediately clear whether Nakoula was the target of a criminal investigation or part of the broader investigation into the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya during a terrorist attack.

Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed Thursday that Justice Department officials were investigating the deaths, which occurred during an attack on the American mission in Benghazi.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation....

So, Holder and Zero have outted this guy. They will have blood on their hands.

Why is Holder "investigating" a person making a movie?

And identifying him as a Copt has just condemned thousands of Egyptian Christians to reprisals by Islamist lunatics.

Good going, Eric.

Certainly we wouldn’t want to blame the muslim killers. Place the blame on a non-entity 10,000 miles away.

They want to investigate the man and instigate his death for harming Obama’s re-election chances.

Doesn’t ID’ing this guy put him in potential danger? I guess that’s what our (un)Justice Department has become these days. Romney’s inauguration cannot come soon enough.

Muslims have identified the film maker as Israeli in one report and Coptic in another. They will kill anyone they want and blame whoever they want.

Exactly.

And our Secretary of State has branded his work for the christian cause in Egypt as "disgusting" while Muslims are committing assasinations.

I’ve also seen some speculation - from websites that seem somewhat informed - that it’s possible that this guy was actually being used by Iran and Egypt as a sort of agent provocateur, without his knowledge. Or even that he is somebody actually in their employ.

He sounds like a somewhat flaky character, so he’d probably be pretty easy to manipulate or to buy.

The “actors” in this thing were told that they were making a movie to discourage Muslim-on-Muslim violence. They seem to have thought it was pro-Islamic.

And the place that strategically published it was...ta da...Egypt.

This Basseley Nakoula guy is a shady character at best. Not sure what is motivation is for making this film. Has the film even been completed?

I believe AP reported earlier that the film was financed by some Israelis, which was a complete lie.

Strange doings: This guy broke no laws,but they hunt him down.
Then they pimp him out

Then they pimp out coptic Christians

Are federal authrities TRYING to get this guy killed
Are they trying to get Coptic Christians in the Middle east murdered?

THIS is the NEW America?

I am surprised they haven’t arrested him yet and sent him to a death camp.

Gawker has interviewed Cindy Lee Garcia, who played the mother whose young daughter was given over to Muhammad.

Garcia claims the script was originally titled Desert Warriors and was about ancient Egypt, not about Islam or religion. The Muhammed character was called Master George when the scenes were shot. "Muhammed" was then dubbed over in post-production, along with other references to Islam.

I would say this crappy production is getting more interesting.

The Egyptian government was preparing for the genocide of the Copts ~ that's a substantial percentage of their population BTW. They've been running about burning Coptic churches down with the people inside for several months.

The movie has nothing whatsoever to do with the bloodthirsty nature of the Egyptian government.

The copts are victims in this irrespective of any other considerations ~ they did not bring it on themselves ~ do not blame the victims.

It's worth noting that in the moslem mind it is perfectly ok to criticize the victim for resisting as you try to kill him. to them only moslems can be victims ~ those dead bodies lying about 'had it comin' the way they think.

His motivation is that he's a Copt and the Egyptian government is trying to murder all the Copts. There's been a big campaign this last year and they've killed many, many people.

We have no reason whatsoever to have peaceful relations with the Egyptian government. There ambassador and his staff should already be on board an AirForce freighter out over the Atlantic ~ in chains ~ ready for a fast dump on a short runway.

This should be illegal. It certainly seems negligent to me of a person’s safety. It is just plain common sense.

CBS and the unnamed federal source, and whoever authorized the investigation to begin with, should be held 100% financially liable and criminally responsible for any harm to the person.

So lemme get this right....the US government blames and outs a guy for stirring up the muslim goons, blaming his actions for the deaths of US citizens, but then they go the extra mile to make sure everyone knows he’s a Christian, which will surely result in innumerable deaths of middle east Christians, essentially doing the same thing they’re blaming the filmmaker for.

So...should I start carrying a gun to church?

I think senator Weed, er Reid, should whistle up a senate committee and begin each line of questioning of this now outted person:

Are you now or were you ever anti muslim?

We can put the hearings on TV and the LSM can chime in over the live proceedings with their take on the matter.

Don’t assume the guy is a Copt. See:

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/09/12/nakoula-a-copt-says-nakoula/

Nothing he says can be trusted given his conviction for bank fraud, and he fits the pattern of an Islamic hate crime faker, i.e., he very well might be Muslim.

1. The blame for the attacks rests with islam which is a death cult that hates America and western civilization.
2. muslims are killing Christians and Jews EVERY DAY all around the world. Not because of a movie but because their religion dictates that they do so.
3. muslim ass kissers such as President Obama only make it easier for these scum bags to kill Americans

Actually I have heard from unnamed federal authorities that the real producer of the anti-Mohammed film is

LESLIE MOONVES

of southern California.

Once again, that is:

LESLIE MOONVES, residing in SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

There, so much better.

1. We have free speech here and we can say what we wish, desopite what Muslims like Barack Obama and his accolytes think.

2. The Copts have more than enough reason to hate Islam.

3. The rioting and attacks were correlated and coordianted to coincide with 9-11 and the “film” had nothing to do with what happened - AS IF THAT MEANS ANYTHING AT ALL.

4. Obama and his Muslim allies are still trying to find an excuse to extinguish the First Amendment.

Make no mistakes about it - Islam on the one hand, and Western Civilization, representative democracy, cultural pluralism, tolerance, women’s equality, and basic human rights are MUTUALLY INCOMPATIBLE.

The funny thing is they weren't looking for him at the time.
They were trying to find their asses with two hands.

“Federal authorities have identified a Coptic Christian”

So let me get this straight. There can be countless accounts of groups of blacks attacking whites, but the American media won’t tell us the attackers are black because they’re afraid that generally peaceful whites will attack innocent blacks in retribution — which never really happens.

Yet when one guy is complicit in producing a film that is allegedly anti-Islam but is likely just truthful, the American media is tripping over themselves to identify the lone man as a Coptic Christian. There’s absolutely no fear among the media that Arab Muslims may attack Coptic Christian in retribution — which is almost sure to happen.

I have rage boiling in me right now.

If 1,000 people made videos about Islam and the truth about its origins, would they have time to track all of them down? How much would it cost to make a video? Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

After seeing the video in question I think about $100 bucks. Most of the money on this particular video was used for very bad makeup.

The "movie" in question is pretty bad. So bad it's funny. But there is nothing illegal about making a bad movie and the government has no business figuring out who made it and why.

Who in their right mind releases the identity of this guy if it would lead to the endangerment and possible death of a group of people already living an untenable situation and at the mercy of muslims?

You do not do this unless you are willing to use force to save the Coypts if this turns ugly for them because of this idiot administration.
