I agree, there is no proof, and its not clear what the OP means. I don't know what interview the OP is talking about, but I have seen the film so I
can speculate what the OP was speculating. I think what he meant was this:
1. Some guy uploads an offensive video on Youtube
2. Its a crap film, so not many people actually see it in the following months
3. Times makes an interview with the author of the video
4. AP makes an interview with the author, translates it, and broadcasts it in Islamic countries
5. Islamic people get upset and start riots.
Now I don't believe that the above happened, but I think it is what the OP was trying to say. The important factor here is the interviews, the way I
think it happened (Wikipedia), is that some individuals translated it and spread it around by their own means, including broadcasting segments on TV.
I haven't seen any evidence for the Times or AP being involved, but if
they had been the ones who suddently broadcasted it on TV in countries
everyone knows its going to be taken badly, there would be something going on.
To reiterate, I think the OP was suggesting that the Times interview happened before September 11, before the video was seen by one and a half million
people. But I haven't seen any evidence of the said interview. So if the OP is no longer with us, maybe someone else can clear this, or we can just
ignore the whole idea and discuss something else.
