Remember Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (Mark Basseley Youseff)??
Coptic Christian from Egypt.
Convicted in 2010 of check fraud in the USA.
Was free on probation.
Benghazi patsy - used as a coverup for the administrations errors and lies.
Accused of eight allegations of probation violation and tossed in jail.
8 months later - still stuck in jail.
True .. He's not exactly an exemplary human being.
But even a person with a criminal record deserves first amendment rights.
And his were taken away and his life (what it was) was destroyed.
True .. he violated his probation by using an alias ...
But does anyone think that would have been enough to toss him in jail for a year?
I don't think so. If he hadn't have been used by the government, no one would
have thought twice about it or bothered him. IMHO.

The Benghazi Patsy

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula deserves a place in American history. He is the first person in this country jailed for violating Islamic anti-blasphemy laws. You won’t find that anywhere in the charges against him, of course. As a practical matter, though, everyone knows that Nakoula wouldn’t be in jail today if he hadn’t produced a video crudely lampooning the prophet Muhammad ...

A few years ago, he was sentenced to nearly two years in jail on bank fraud charges. He has more aliases than P. Diddy. Using a false name, Nakoula gulled actors into appearing in his video on the pretense that it was a desert epic and then went in afterward and dubbed in the anti-Muhammad lines. He is not going to win any good citizenship awards and violated the terms of his probation by using an alias (something Nakoula admits).

A violation of probation, though, usually produces a court summons and doesn’t typically lead to more jail time unless it involves an offense that would be worth prosecuting in its own right under federal standards. Not for Nakoula.

I remember this guy well.... so should everyone else.

It was his video that was blamed for what happened in Bengahzi. His video inflamed the Muslim world and caused the protest outside the US Embassy that turned violent.

This was the story from the White House after the incident, which we now know was a completely fabricated story.

This is a REAL conspiracy. This is a person who was used by the government to cover their own lies. This is a person who is in jail because he used his 1st Amendment Rights. So why is it that when a screwy thread comes up saying the Boston Bombers were photoshopped into the pictures .. everyone jumps on and gets all worked up. But when a REAL conspiracy thread about a person being punished for using their 1st amendment rights comes up ... it is ignored??? Guess this topic isn't snazzy enough or something? Sad.

The guy was an operator who was betrayed by his handlers. And that's only if you assume he was ever imprisoned in the first place. There are enough innocent people dying for whom I have more empathy.

Definitely not snazzy enough. I started a thread about this a couple of days ago and got the same non-interest. Too many people have forgotten this other ugly angle of the Benghazi story. This guy is in jail basically for exercising his freedom of speech so they can cover their you know what's!
