I long for the days before January 20, 2009, when dissent was the highest form of patriotism:
After his 2010 conviction, Nakoula was sentenced to 21 months in prison and was barred from using computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer, though prosecutors said none of the violations involved the Internet. He also wasn’t supposed to use any name other than his true legal name without the prior written approval of his probation officer.
Three names, however, have been associated with Nakoula this month alone.
Some of the false statements in Nakoula’s alleged probation violations had to do with the film, Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert Dugdale said. Nakoula told probation officials his role was just writing the script, and denied going by the name Sam Bacile in connection with the film, Dugdale said.
So far the Obama Justice Department hasn’t put one foot on the ground in Benghazi to investigate the terror attack that led to the murder of Ambassador Stevens and other Americans in a 9/11 al Qaeda terrorist attack, but has spent considerable energy attempting to find creative ways to punish Nakoula’s blasphemy.
Indeed, the Obama Administration was extremely creative in fabricating the fiction that the film triggered riots that never happened in Benghazi, and continued peddling those lies through senior Administration officials even though they had advance warning of the attack and refused to defend Stevens or provide even rudimentary security.
From Fast and Furious to Benghazi, this Administration’s record is one of reckless, feckless, and deadly incompetence that is more tantrum than policy.
Lawmakers smell a rat.
Let’s hope voters do as well.
Make that informed, intelligent voters.
