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.

Do not upset the regime....unfnreal
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?
liberal gobbled goop, aka a ruse.
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.
Once I again, I repeat myself: OBAMA MUST GO!!!
Your USG at work, helping our enemies and religions of hate, whereever and whenever possible.
Just one tiny morsel from: The Asylum of our Era...
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.
It's the Chicago Way.
This guy is now toast.
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.
A continued effort to downplay the importance of 9/11.
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?
He certainly won't be the cause celeb among the liberal elilte that Salman Rushdie was.
That’s for sure.
Talk to my neighbors — they have lost cats, dogs, raccoons, opossums, rabbits and all kinds of cute pets just for wandering on my lawn.
You want to get rid of your gerbil? Put it on my front lawn. :)
Great, can we go after Bill Maher for “Religulous”?
So the guy makes a “film” that essentially no one sees. Idiot moozlum morons riot/kill/rape and so forth (per usual) and this guy get blamed for their criminal, uncivilized behavior. Am I Alice in Wonderland????? Whatever happened to freedom???? November can’t come soon enough to throw these LIB moonbats out... (oh, by the way...could they investigate and hassle the person who put the cross in a bottle of urine?????) Sheesh!
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).
He’s no Salman Rushdie, apparently.
Are they going to hand him over to the Islamists as a blood sacrifice, open a Sharia court and try him or???
I’m missing my plastic pink flamingo. You haven’t seen it have you?
Another report said the moslems were also shouting, "we are osama".
that video didnt have anything untrue in it..It was a spoof but it was a spoof.
Not a bad idea.
I’ll split the check with you.
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.
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.
She's threatening to sue.
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.
Does this mean it’s ok to snuff John Grisham?
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.
Well...I was being sarcastic.
“How about if their dog poops on your lawn?”
Call a cop, they’ll be happy to pop the dog.
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!!
The Constitution, the Country, the Citizens are being betrayed.
These are the american commies unmasked.
Well...I was being sarcastic.
I realize that and I'm sorry if it appeared I was questioning you. I was simply using your comment to start my train of thought.
no apology necessary...doesn’t hurt for me to clarify myself
