US Identifies Anti-Muslim Filmmaker Blamed for Attacks
CBS ^ | Sept. 13, 2012

Posted on 09/13/2012 3:34:11 PM PDT by Taggart_D

WASHINGTON (AP) — 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.

I am shocked that the Obama administration is actually exposing this guy. He's running for his life (as well as running from the law).

Ridiculous.

This movie shouldn't even be part of the story.

Madame Hillary began the charge against this poor man when she labelled his work "disgusting". The media has taken her cue.

Let me get this stright - It’s OK to kill folks if you don’t like their films. How about if their dog poops on your lawn?

The person who produced this film is disgusting. I'm skeptical whether he is a Coptic Christian as he may have claimed. I am convinced that the Obama administration's only possible motives for revealing his identity are evil. It is inexcusable to violate the privacy of this person, except in a court of law, even if he is responsible for a phenomenally terrible movie that was used as an excuse for serious violence.

What the h*** business do Obama and Holder have exposing this guy as the maker of the film???? According to the article, they may have a reason to investigate him for some other matter unrelated to this, but to expose his identity in connection with this film???

Once I again, I repeat myself: OBAMA MUST GO!!!

Didn’t the State Department put pressure on Terry Jones when he was going to burn a koran? Did it extend to an IRS investigation?

We “know” this filmmaker has “financial crimes” meanwhile so does the Sec. of the Treasury and Barack Hussein Obama STILL has not been vetted.

Jihadists attacked the French embassy in Iraq on 9-9-2012. What was the excuse then?

The pravda media is carrying the lying Obama administration's water by continuing the spin that this was brought on by radical filmmakers and not the 9-11 anniversary and the wave of Islamist revolution in the Middle East.

How many ambassadors were killed in the War of 12 Cartoons? How many embassies were attacked in the wake of Van Gogh's film?

Typical Obama Bullstalin to blame the filmmaker.

Next Obama will be attacking South Park for his problems.

Chickens came home to roost, sissyb!tch president.

Meanwhile the “Palestinians” repeatedly air docudramas about Jews using the blood of Christians to bake passover matzah and air them without violence or even condemnation from Shamnesty Internationale or the US Hate Department.

The Copts in Egypt will be targeted - even more than they are now.

Perhaps that is part of the plan?

Looks like this regime and the media are still sticking to their narrative even though it's been debunked that the Anti-Muslim film was really the cause of this mess.

Put in for an NEA grant to produce a work titled "P!ss Mohammed". It will be a performance/appropriated piece.

The art will consist of the proposal itself, the rejection letter, the controversy from the State Department and a limp wristed General and the President's press secretary.

If you are asked to provide a description of the work, tell them that it is a photo of a photo of "P!ss Chr!st" and that the "art" is in the difference the two religious figures are treated and perceived by the liberal establishment and difference of the expressions of outrage by the inflamed of the religious followers of each tradition.

It is conceptual since the only "affront" to Islam is in the name of the work itself and plenty of sorry sacks of sh!t have been named Mohammed with no outrage from the muslim world (Mohammed Atta, for example).

Does not come as a surprise. Obama said he’d side with the muslims if the winds turned.

If it’s all about something as silly as a yet-to-be-released “offensive” movie, then it’s even more likely it’s all because it was reported that Hussein personally insisted that Jerusalem be reinstated with his campaign.

The muslims reportedly were shouting “Death to Obama”, not their usual “Death to America”.

Why else would they suddenly turn on their best friend in America?

And why is that?

Have you seen the film? It is about as well done as a child's drawing of Mohammad (which would also send the Muslim world into gyration).

Is expressing oneself against the murderous cult of Islam disgusting? From what I saw of the film, it was crude but accurate.

I hear this film is on Youtube. Surprised that it has not already been repeatedly pulled from youtube.com.

Even Michelle Malkin repeatedly had her video blogs pulled because of stupid complaints by liberals (if they weren’t pulled outright, they would be moved to ADULT ONLY).

Watch out. Produce a legal but crappy film, and you'll not only be panned by Roger Ebert, but also be tracked down by the Feds.

Are they going to hand him over to the Islamists as a blood sacrifice, open a Sharia court and try him or???

Another report said the moslems were also shouting, "we are osama".

Why are you surprised? Members of Seal Team 6 were ambushed and massacred because mission info was leaked by the Obama regime.

IMO, this movie thing is a diversionary tactic. The real reason for The Arab Fall a/k/a Early October Surprise had nothing to do with reaction to an anti-muslim video. They don't care who is sacrificed for the big "cause", neither this Coptic Christian nor Ambassador Christopher Stevens. At all costs. Whatever it takes. Obama must retain power.

All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him.

If you look at the comments on the CBS DC website linked to this story, you will see both CBS and the government getting hammered. There were nearly 700 comments and all that I saw were negative and many were angry.

If Obama is not a muslim implant, he is the most coincidently muslim-supporting politician to come on the scene.

They hate America, he hates America. He speaks Arabic...they speak Arabic (well the educated ones anyway).

In November, we must either take this country back or prepare for a secession.

Obama has crystalized our differences. We cannot coexist. This country cannot continue as a divided unit. We must split up.

He can have NYC and Vermont and Chicago and Portland and San Fran (et al)...and we get the rest.

Make no mistake...this is war.

Obama is the enemy.

If we pretend we are not at war...we risk being overrun.

Be vigilant.

Let’s see — Coptic Christians crucified and persecuted in Egypt, one comes to the land of the free and the home of the brave, exercises free speech, and the Obama Administration fingers them for “abuse” of free speech? Pathetic.

As a Coptic Christian, he probably came here to escape Shariah. A shame our country betrayed those hopes.

That film, which I bet no one here heard of before these heinous attacks, is just a convenient excuse for the attacks. How did these camel jockeys find out about some obscure file made by someone who no one had ever heard of??

al-Qaeda had planned another 9-11 attack, they couldn’t do it here in America, so they picked America targets abroad and hillary and BO are using some unknown film as the reason. Good for creating a scapegoat.

In my heart, I am sure that BO and his crew knew about this in advance and let it happen in order to use for his political advantage. Risky, but BO is desperate. I hope it blows up in his face big time!!
