Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has been released from prison. Nakoula spent a year in prison after having been scapegoated for responsibility for the Benghazi attack on the basis of a film he made attacking Islam.
Some will claim that Nakoula was jailed for probation violations, not for making the film. It’s been a year, so let’s debunk that yet again:
- Nakoula committed minor probation violations that no one would have cared about had he not been chosen as the scapegoat for Benghazi.
- The only reason those probation violations even came to light is because the federal government investigated the film looking for a scapegoat.
- Hillary Clinton pledged that the maker of the film would be arrested and prosecuted. This was before his identity or probation status were known.
