Man behind anti-Muslim film sentenced to prison

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The California man behind an anti-Muslim film that led to violence in many parts of the Middle East was sentenced Wednesday to a year in federal prison for probation violations in an unrelated matter, then issued a provocative statement through his attorney.

The sentence was the result of a plea bargain between lawyers for Mark Bassely Youssef and federal prosecutors. Youssef admitted in open court that he had used several false names in violation of his probation order and obtained a driver's license under a false name. He was on probation for a bank fraud case.

Shortly after Youssef left the courtroom, his lawyer, Steven Seiden, came to the front steps of the courthouse and told reporters his client wanted to send a message.

"The one thing he wanted me to tell all of you is President Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden....

Just a fall guy for carefully executed plan by the Obama administration. They will find him dead in his cell after BenghaziGate dies down.

If you are an illegal alien rapist with ten DUI accidents, the fedgov will give you a new car and send you on your way with a smile and a wave. And a new EBT card.

Welcome to the USSA, comrades.

Liberals believe in free speech for themselves and their 'favorites' - fall outside of that and bad things happen... The new normal - totalitarian-lite.

Baloney, baloney, foofarar! There was no film, only a very amateurish trailer on YouTube!

And the Benghazi savages attacked because it was 9/11 and because their targets were American. PERIOD!!!!

We need to keep the heat on the US House of Representatives to continue and broaden the investigation of the Benghazi attack, and turn it into a true “Gate” like Watergate!!!! Remember, Nixon was reelected before Watergate really broke, and look what happened to him!!!!

This is the modus operandi of the future.

At the risk of being labeled a criminally minded man, I suggest that, though Youseff has been running in criminally associated activities, the fact remains that the stupid film he made is just about the most inane thing to ever flicker on a screen.

We analyzed that thing here in FR withing 24 hrs of Amb. Steven's murder and concluded that it was akin to a pebble dropped in the Atlantic 200 miles out caused hurricane Sandy.

But Youseff has been arrested because a lot of elements allowed the administration the opportunity to continue covering it's incompetent ass for actively contributing to the murder of four men.

It is my opinion that the Obama administration has been actively engaged in gun running since it's inception

So,

Youseff is interned for a year because, well ... he is a potential exposer of the government ruse and he needs to be taught a lesson

They're not into shooting us in the streets .... yet.

He’s Obama and Hilliary’s scape goat. Throw him under the bus to take the camera off of themselves.

Kind of reminds me of Timothy McVey. They didn’t waste any time getting him into prison either. Strange how fast the system can work when you are in charge.

Holder got it done in a hurry, now well see if the poor stooge dies for exercizing his so-called “Free Speech” rights.

“The one thing he wanted me to tell all of you is President Obama may have gotten Osama bin Laden, but he didn’t kill the ideology” said Yousef’s lawyer, Steven Seiden.

Asked what that meant, Seiden said, “I didn’t ask him, and I don’t know.”

Gee, I wonder what he might have possibly meant. Seiden, as his lawyer, deftly diverted the question. But the media idiot who asked the question is totally brain dead. His meaning is as plain as the nose on the idiot’s face.

The first sentence of this article is one of the most biased pieces of “journalism” that I've seen in a long time, and that's saying something.

1. The riots were not caused by his film. Even Obama isn't sticking with that lie anymore.

2. Note that the AP is careful to tell everyone that this guy was sentenced in an “unrelated” matter to make clear that this wasn't some horrible political prosecution and scapegoating by Obama.

3. They characterize his statement as “provocative” as if he's the extremist.

Congratulations AP, you've outdone yourself with a lead sentence worthy of Pravda.

Terrible times. Couldn’t someone do something for this man? This man is in prison for the most obvious reason. This ‘incident’ was unthinkable a few years ago and yet American government is in some sort of mindcontrol they can’t get past this corrupt administration.

The mouthpiece Seiden should have studied his history.

Didn’t the line originate from Abbie Hoffman - Chicago 7(?) in 1968 or at least 1 of the ‘Original Yippies’?.

To wit

‘They can force us to shave, put on a suit and smile a lot BUT they can’t change our mind.
I will get out of jail, put on a suit and tie and mingle but still put my message out’.

I realize that is NOT a direct quote BUT the gist is there and Lawzy Lawzy, where are the unshaven, slovenly yute from the 60’s?
College Professors, Police Chiefs/Superintendents, POLITICIANS etc etc etc and their offspring are carrying on for them.

WE sat and fiddled while allowing “Rome” to burn and let the weirdos get a foothold that they (probably - at least not in my lifetime) will never relinquish.

Ah I get your point. But this character told the AP on September 12, 2012 he was an Israeli Jew, Sam Bacile. Now how is it that this administration was apologizing for this video before trouble even started in Cairo?

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/12/us-libya-usa-attack-idUSBRE88B0EI20120912

“.......The “Innocence of Muslims,” the film blamed for provoking the violence, was the work of a California-based Israeli filmmaker Sam Bacile, according to a report by the Associated Press.

It portrays Mohammad as a fool, a philanderer and a religious fake and in one clip posted on YouTube, he was shown in an apparent sexual act with a woman. For many Muslims it is blasphemous even to show a depiction of the Prophet.

Bacile, who described himself to AP as an Israeli Jew, spoke to the agency from hiding on Tuesday. He said that the film, which cost $5 million to make, was intended as a political statement and was financed by more than 100 Jewish donors.

Egypt's Coptic Orthodox Church, meanwhile, condemned Copts living abroad who it said had financed “the production of a film insulting the Prophet Mohammad”. About a 10th of Egypt's 83 million people are Christian.........”

Interesting timing. When he’s forgotten about, he’ll be shipped back to the ME or will meet with an accident.

Now Obama can eagerly run to Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood and inform them we’ve thrown the nasty anti-Islamo-fascism person in the slammer. After he gets done bowing before them.

He’ll sell his story for millions and make the talk show circuit. The true story will make him far richer than all his lies and cheating.

I don’t think that that stupid trailer was involved in Benghazi at all. It WAS involved in the riots and protests in Egypt and elsewhere in the islamic world.

Benghazi was planned by an Al Qaeda offshoot way in advance. obama and Hillary’s crime was failing to help the Americans under attack and covering it up using the bogus trailer.

The full story of Benghazi-gate will only come to light after a full investigation by a Congressional committee and probably a special prosecutor. May the Lord and the American people cause this to happen, and thwart any attempts to quash the investigation!!!!
