EXCLUSIVE: Jailed filmmaker vows to finish film wrongly blamed for Benghazi attack

by Joshua Rhett Miller

EXCLUSIVE: The controversial filmmaker whose crude Internet trailer was wrongly blamed by the White House for sparking last year's deadly Benghazi attack vowed to finish his movie, which he said is aimed at fighting terrorism, not denigrating Islam.

Breaking his silence from inside a facility under the authority of the federal Bureau of Prisons in southern California, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula told FoxNews.com in a series of phone interviews that his film "Innocence of Muslims" has been widely misunderstood, and not just in being singled out as causing the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that left U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead....

I thought this guy was executed?

Didn't Bill Killian say allowing him to live would be Islamophobic?

Apparently the execution was botched, he’s not quite dead.

If he’s any kind of REAL filmmaker, I think he’s got a whole new story to tell. And a new film that lots of people would pay to see.

IF he’s smart.

I think it was some violation of parole or something. I could be wrong, though.

He’s scheduled to be released from prison on Sept. 26th. Do you really think he’ll live that long? Don’t be surprised if he gets stabbed to death after an “altercation” with another inmate.

I believe it was for violating the terms of his parole .... banking fraud. BTW .... I saw the film. It stinks. He should not waste any time finishing it.

Supposedly he was paroled in the past for some kind of internet-related scam. And one condition of parole was not to put stuff on the internet.

Interesting thought: how did the powers that be behind Democrats Obama and Clinton just happen to pull this guy out of hat for his totally obscure video and make him the fall guy for Benghazi?

One second he’s going his way, doing his thing whatever it was, in virtual obscurity, next second he’s an international villain and his “production” and subsequent arrest for parole violation is the biggest story out there, absolutely integral to their desperate LIE about Benghazi.

How convenient.

Spying on Americans, maybe??

Prior to our learning that it had caused Muslim riots and outrage all over the world, I think it had been viewed a grand total of about 3 times (probably by Hillary's staff).

You DIDN'T see the 'film'. What you saw was a crudely edited 'video' taken from the 'film', with dubbed in ENGLISH.

As far as I can tell, this guy really had nothing to do with the video that appeared on YOUTUBE, other than it was taken from the 'rushes' of his 'film'.

It is obvious that experienced,professional 'filmmakers' were not involved in making the 'video', but more likely helpful idiots under Hillary's control.

If you hated that one, you should see the film Frank Marshall Davis made of Obama’s white mother on all fours.

He’s still in jail as a political prisoner so as to exonerate the current occupant of the oval office.
There was no trial.

Good he and all the rest of us have every right to criticize Mohammed all he wants. That shouldn’t even be a question.

They got him on a technicality, saying that uploading the video to youtube was a violation of his probation, which said he couldn’t use computers due to his fraud conviction.

He's still in jail? What's he charged with?

What ever happened to speedy trial?

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.

Why is he in California? The film was made out of his home and office in Florida.

He doesn’t need to finish it, he just needs to threaten to finish it. With all the uproar the trailer caused, I’m sure someone will pay him NOT to finish filming it.

I really do think he should give up his dream of being a great film producer like Alfred Hitchcock; however, I’d pay big bucks to see a big budget Hollywood film on the Jihadist aspect of Islam.

But that is so not going to happen...

If the goal was artistry, it’s a loss, but maybe he wanted to make a political or religious statement.

I think the recent revelations about the NSA and other goings on make that an easy question to answer.

Hillary was almost panicking when she felt compelled to specifically deny the US government had anything to do with the anti-Islamic video. Nakoula was/is probably some kind of informant or plant who can be traced to some part of the US government.

There is no way they would have caught him on this technicality had State not tried to scapegoat him. As such, I think he should be considered a political prisoner.

I guess it never occurred to people especially the media that Youtube has about 10 gabillion anti-muslim videos, some that have been up there for over 5 years, yet *this* one video ticked off the Muzzies? It was absolute BS right from the start yet the media just went along with it.

Something about not having access to the internet due to parole conditions (I believe) but who’s to say he didn’t get someone else to upload that video?

The bottom line is the regime picked a name out of a hat. “Oh this guy put up a video hostile against Islam” when the fact is there are countless videos hostile against Islam on Youtube and have been for years. This guy was literally picked out of a hat. They mean to tell me that what he made was *more* hostile than this one which has been up for 5 years?

Do you suppose that this fellow will ever be released from prison? He is very much a political prisoner and Moslems-CAIR and AQ and the Taliban are surely opposing his release ever. The government surely is not going to buck that tremendous concentration of righteousness and morality.

He was an FBI asset before the Bengazi attack, and it’s likely he was dredged up and thrust onto the scene after the Bengazi attack, specifically because they had leverage on him. He could easily be used as a blame recipient.

I think that this latest much-vaunted innocence declaration by him represents him CONTINUING to act as asset;

This latest “cri de coeur” role by him as “wronged party” has the actual objective of distracting from his real role as FBI asset and **part** of the Bengazi coverup:

They offered to go easy on him if he played/plays ball.

It was role-playing and obfuscation before, and it is exactly that NOW also.
