Have no idea who he's supposed to be or what it's about.
The identity of Sam Bacile, reportedly the creator of anti-Muslim film that caused a deadly firestorm Libya last night, remains a mystery. In reports earlier today, this is how Bacile was described: Bacile, a California real estate developer in his fifties who identifies himself as an Israeli Jew, said he believes the movie will help his native land by exposing Islam’s flaws to the world. ” “Islam is a cancer, period,” he repeatedly said in a solemn, accented tone. Not so fast. According to a Times of Israel report, this may not be true. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said they had not heard of Sam Bacile and there was no record of him being a citizen. This claim was later reinforced by Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic, who interviewed Steve Klein, who was a consultant on Bacile’s film. Klein, who (despite the name) is not Jewish, offered this: He said the man who identified himself as Bacile asked him to help make the anti-Muhammad film. When I asked him to describe Bacile, he said: “I don’t know that much about him. I met him, I spoke to him for an hour. He’s not Israeli, no. I can tell you this for sure, the State of Israel is not involved, Terry Jones (the radical Christian Quran-burning pastor) is not involved. His name is a pseudonym. All these Middle Eastern folks I work with have pseudonyms. I doubt he’s Jewish. I would suspect this is a disinformation campaign.”

So what does The Wall Street Journal know?
What does Rupert Murdoch know?
It seems likely that Sam Becile isnt even a real person.
We know that the CIA colludes with papers like The Washington Post and The New York Times. They also use CNN.and CBS and others. If you think they dont have mockingbirds then think again.
It seems to me that The Wall Street Journal was used to give this nonsense some legs. Did they know that Sam Becile wasnt who he said he was? Do they know if he is real or fake? What fact checking do they do before they run a story like this?
The Wall Street Journal is a weak link.
Sam Becile does not seem to be who he says he is. He may not even exist.edit on 12-9-2012 by freemarketsocialist because: (no reason given)edit on 12-9-2012 by freemarketsocialist because: (no reason given)
