Federal Agents have arrested Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, also known as Sam Bacile, the producer of the Innocence of Muslims video. Obama wins this one. Never mind that the “film” had nothing to do with the assault on the Benghazi compound, they have the man behind bars in California, and the LA Times, today on 9/27, continues the sham of blaming the “film” for the unrest in the Middle East. Considering the restrictions of Nakoula’s parole records, he surely did violate his patrol in a number of ways, but the subject of the video is not one of Nakoula’s violations. The Obama administration continued to blame the video as late as Tuesday at the United Nations (maybe later, I’ve been out of town and am just catching up on news), yet knew within 24 hours that Al-Qaeda was behind the attack. The State Department website saying there was “no credible information” that Al-Qaeda was involved has been scrubbed. Guess what it says today.
Pakistan has put a $97,416.00 bounty on Nakoula. This gives the converted Muslims inside the California jail, or perhaps prison where he ends up, a clear shot unless he’s kept in solitary confinement. An Egyptian Muslim cleric has called on American Muslim youth to kill Nakoula, and everyone involved in the video, including actors, actresses and anyone who has promoted Innocence of Muslims. American lives are threatened and the Obama administration continues blaming the video for the deaths of four Americans, with no regard for those living here and simply trying to make a legal living. If Nakoula violated his parole by using alias’ and using the Internet, so be it, but what about the lives of everyone else who did nothing fatwa worthy (as if anything should every be considered fatwa worthy in the United States)?
But look, this should take care of the White House problem of yet another lie. Jake Tapper reports today:
…Obama administration officials told ABC News they were concerned after the White House began pushing the line that the attack was spontaneous and not the work of terrorists…
White House officials acknowledge that assessments have changed over time as intelligence has been confirmed, but they insist that no information was given in bad faith and there was no attempt to downplay the attack.
But sources told ABC News that intelligence officials on the ground immediately suspected the attack was not tied to the movie at all. The attackers knew Ambassador Stevens had been trying to flee — to a so-called safe house half a mile away. That building was hit with insurgent mortars — suggesting the terrorists knew what they were doing.
