    I still don't think there have been any charges filed on him. Could be wrong. Heard he was on probation? Anyway, I find it very interesting that he's still in jail considering his video has nothing to do with the terrorist attack in Benghazi. So why is he in jail? Under who's orders is he still in jail? BO's? Holder's? Who is keeping him there?

    Well this thread should land with a pretty loud thud:

    His probation offense was the sort of thing that is routinely hit or miss on enforcement because it is not really a great use of prosecutorial or correctional budgets. It was leveraged as a pretense to put him in jail for making the video, period. It was meant and undoubtedly received as a message of tacit agreement that the US would do its best to enforce anti-blasphemy when it could manage to do so within the unfortunate constraints of the Bill of Rights. Hillary had a promise to keep anyway -- they were too.g to catch the man who made the video that played absolutely no role whatsoever in the death of those four Americans.

    Yes keeping somebody with a conviction for bank fraud in jail for using false names seems like something law enforcement wouldn't care about. Unless of course, using a false name is a way that people commit crimes like bank fraud. Is it?

    He supposedly violated probation... all because of a video he made legally... Yeah, no agenda with that incarceration. :roll:

    Yeah, and obviously the optics are pure coincidence and every other similar probation case in the jurisdiction was handled just as heavyhandedly right at around that exact time. Also? Unicorns.

    No he violated probation from the moment he used a series of false names, dating from his original trial (in which he was tried under an admittedly false name) through the production of that video (which made the production of the video illegal).

    But since you obviously trust him, why don't you send him some personal information and see what this fine upstanding citizen does with it? Let us know how it goes.

    If you are on probation for opening bank accounts under false names, the fact that your trial occurred under a false name and that you continued to use a series of false names seems to be a serious problem. But suddenly optics matter more than the actual case?

    So what about the optics that this is the second time he received exactly a year for violating a probation? Those optics certainly don't look good for your case here.

    Nope. It's all because of the video.

    Well then you think people on probation for opening bank accounts under false names should be able to keep using false names, even in their trials?

    And here I thought you were claiming to be against fraud.

    So, they found out he did this after the video?

    Seems like it. He was giving a false name as a producer of the video and federal authorities found out who he was (or rather who he said he was in his first trial). Only after his next arrest did he admit to what his "real" name is.

    He's a dirt bag. Doesn't mean he can't make a good or even mediocre movie. He's lied and violated his probation specifically on the terms of the things that got him convicted in the first place.

    Good people sometimes do really stupid things and hurt others. Bad people often do really stupid things and hurt others...sometimes bad people do wonderful things - but they still can be bad people. Just because this guy was used as a scapegoat doesn't mean he shouldn't be behind bars for other stuff he's done. He, like most folks, was just a convenient pawn in the game that the Obama administration was playing w/ Benghazi: "pay no attention to the arms dealers over there....keep your eyes on the big bad movie..." After all, Her Highness Ms.Clinton said "there are 4 dead Americans...what does it matter?" This guy was used AND he was doing bad things AND he was caught AND he should be in jail. Once he's paid his price let him make the "tell all" movie about wrongful imprisonment and maybe he can make back a buck or two...but, I won't be an investor. :no:

    So if he had used his real name on the video he wouldn't be in jail?

    Pretty much. He violated the terms of his probation by using an alias as well as using the Internet without court approval. Look, the guy is pretty shady so he makes the perfect foil for the governments Benghazi coverup. Nobody cares too much about an ex-con who, in the governments pronouncement, makes films declared as hate speech.

    Break it down. In the simplest terms, he is an ex-Muslim who thinks Islam is a fraud. Sound familiar? Replace Islam with Christianity and there are some members on this board guilty of the same thing. Want to go to jail for it?
