Oh boy…the implications here are staggering. If this film was indeed produced by Islamic hucksters, and Shoebat makes a very good case that it was — what does that make the Obama administration, who so enthusiastically jumped on the anti anti-Mohammed film bandwagon, and stayed on, even as the narrative fell apart? It’s now being reported that the US knew Stevens assassination was the work of terrorists within 24 hours of the attack. Why, as Romney and Ryan ask, doesn’t Obama want the American people to know exactly what happened in Benghazi?
Is it because the truth would reveal their deplorable lack of security at their Middle Eastern consulates and embassies? Or is there an even darker explanation?
Many of you are probably familiar with Walid Shoebat. He used to be a radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of Jihad before he converted to Christianity in 1994. As a member of the PLO he was involved in terrorist activity, and was even imprisoned in Jerusalem for three weeks. More about his background, here.
He has some questions about the identity of the man who made the film, Innocence of Muslims, who calls himself Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and claims to be a Coptic Christian.
