The Obama administration has made it clear that does not like freedom of speech. from Eileen Sullivan Stephen Braun, Associated Press:
Attorney General Eric Holder said that Justice Department officials had opened a criminal investigation into the deaths of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other diplomats killed during an attack on the American mission in Benghazi. It was not immediately clear whether authorities were focusing on the California filmmaker as part of that probe.
A federal law enforcement official said Thursday that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was the man behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film denigrating Islam and the Prophet Muhammad that sparked protests earlier in the week in Egypt and Libya and now in Yemen. U.S. authorities are investigating whether the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya came
o two point
One, why is the federal government making public a name of private citizen? Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has not been charged with any new crimes. Making bad film hardly qualifies as a federal offense. If Holder is sober and serious, this looks like a reincarnation of the Salem Witch Trials. The idea that the film “Innocence of Muslims” some how sparked Islamic riots in not a fact, it is not a theory backed by evidence, it is a media talking point.
Two, why to Sullivan and Braun assert as facts that Nakoula is responsible for the film and that the film caused any deaths? The some media which still calls Orenthal James Simpson an accused murderer.
I think the American Civil Liberties Union needs to look into Holder’s actions, and that Sullivan and Braun should retain some good attorneys.
