CORRIGENDUM: Sam Bacile is not Sam Bacile he’s Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. The Ambassador’s Death
I wasn’t surprised to learn today of the shady history of the maker of the movie that launched a chain of events that resulted in the death of an ambassador (and others.)
Apparently initial reports attributing the film to a Jewish man named Sam Bacile were wrong. The real culprit is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. A Coptic Christian who has had many brushes with the law.
“Nakoula, who talked guardedly about his role, pleaded no contest in 2010 to federal bank fraud charges in California and was ordered to pay more than $790,000 in restitution. He was also sentenced to 21 months in federal prison and ordered not to use computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.”
As is usually the case in these matters, we have a con-man whipping up sentiment against a particular group to make money. He’s a Pat Robertson, a crazy Imam who chants Death to America- a fraudster who makes a living out of gullible people.
