Benghazi: If an Anti-Muslim Movie lead to an Ambassadors execution are the movies financiers liable? There are enough links to the KOCH brothers so that, in my humble opinion, they must be involved. If true, any connection to the deaths must be eliminated (in Koch brother thinking).


This was posted in response to my sign (when first posted 9/16/2012).

2 Anti-Muslim Films Released B4 Elections -
In Two Presidential Elections, An Anti-Muslim Film Has Emerged Exactly 7 Weeks Before the Polls Open:

"Nakoula produced an amateurish documentary that was screened in one tiny theatre, with a trailer released on the internet.  That limited circulation stands in sharp contrast to another Islamophobic film that was broadly circulated in 2008 by mainstream newspapers with financial backing from a nonprofit group with ties to the Koch brothers."

Questions that I still have:

Did the Koch brothers fund the movie?

Who else can afford a movie crew of 80+ people?

If the Romney people knew in advance (as in having knowledge of who funded it and knowledge about the timing of it's release), is that why he responded so quickly?

Why is McCain working so hard to make sure the Ambassadors execution is not tied to the movie?

UPDATE at 3:36
In today's news conference Senator Graham mentions the Anti-Muslim Film starting at 50 seconds into this youtube video


Is the link between an Anti-Muslim Film & an Ambassadors execution what McCain is trying to erase?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I could elaborate but the idiocy of the comparing the making of a movie to shouting fire in crowded theater prevents me from participating in this diary further.

    Steve Klein: Klein founded Courageous Christians United, an anti-Mormon, anti-Muslim and anti-Jehovah’s Witness organization in 1977.

    Now if you could find a link between Klein and Koch, good for you.

    But I think you're looking at a religious zealot who probably expects to "Rapture Up" while leaving the rest of us "Left Behind."

    What evidence ("links") is there of any connection between the production of Innocence of Muslims and the Kochs?

    but I see no connection of the movie to the Koch Brothers.

    Although it COULD BE connected with the commodities brokers, Duke & Duke!

  •  No McCain is just an ass (0+ / 0-)

    He just wants everyone to pay attention to him like he is important. He just can not live with the fact Obama beat him in a landslide.
    The other two are just his faithful sidekicks, Ayotte looks foolish being critical of Rice whose intelligence dwarfs hers.

  •  The 'movie' might have been brought up.... (0+ / 0-)

    Remembering that this 'film' in English has been on the internet since July, and only translated into Arabic and 'dissiminated' in a 'talk show' format ONLY in Egypt, my personal belief was that the fraudster who made it, and his CHRISTIAN friends wanted to incite anger to have a political consequence against Morsi, the elected president of Egypt.

    Coptic Christians, like the fraudster who made this film, have always claimed that Coptic Christians...and especially women, are percecuted by Muslims.  I would invite people to read about Coptic Christians, and especially the rights of divorced women within thier religion.  You might find that alot of women convert to Islam (the only viable alternative in Egypt) so they can remarry, and have rights with thier offspring without the former husband meddling.

    We must remember too, that Candidate Romney was the first person to link the violent responce in Cairo with the murder of the Ambassador and 13 others at the Consolate in Benghazi.

    The media in other countries report that witness accounts say that...there were no protests about ANYTHING, that the attack was purposeful, arried out by well armed men who broke through a barrier and began thier assault.

    Oaths and alleginaces only become valid after being tested in adverstity.
