Controversial filmmaker, wrongly blamed for Benghazi attacks on 9/11/12, has been released from jail, vows to finish the film!
The producer of the so-called anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims,” which the Obama Regime maliciously blamed for the violent attacks on the American mission in Benghazi, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens and 3 other Americans, has been released from a Los Angeles prison. In FOX News interview below, he says he will finish making the film.
Times of Israel Mark Basseley Youssef, 55, of Los Angeles, was released to a halfway house to serve the remaining weeks of his prison term. He was sentenced to prison last November for violating his probation in a 2010 check-writing case.
An Egyptian-born Coptic Christian also known as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, Youssef is believed to have uploaded to YouTube a 14-minute trailer of “The Innocence of Muslims” translated into Arabic, despite not being allowed to use the Internet without permission from his probation officer.
The crudely produced film ridiculing Islam’s Prophet Muhammad touched off a torrent of anti-American demonstrations in Arab and Muslim countries. But links between the film and the assault on US diplomatic posts in the Libyan city of Benghazi that killed four Americans, including the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, were debunked.
