keylock71: That sucks... It's bad enough these folks had to take jobs in low-budget shiat like this to make a living, but to then find out the film was used as a catalyst for the deaths of several Americans?

No wonder the asshole that made this shiat is in hiding. I imagine there's quite a few folks who'd like to see him strung up by balls from the nearest lamp post.


There are suspects.

"Nakoula denied he had posed as Bacile. During a conversation outside his home, he offered his driver's license to show his identity but kept his thumb over his middle name, Basseley. Records checks by the AP subsequently found it and other connections to the Bacile persona."

"Now we have people dead because of a movie I was in. It makes me sick."

If only Jodie Foster had shown similar remorse.

Man, I know what that's like.

I was in a "student film" about a bunch of shirtless dudes waiting for a pizza to be delivered, then the cable to be repaired, then the pool to be cleaned. The producer told me it was a scathing indictment of how the system treats workers in a tertiary economy, and next thing I know my name is up there with a Toronto Otter Squat and a Peruvian Axe Handle in the urban dictionary.

Dr Dreidel: The whole video controversy appears to be trollish eye-poking by a bunch of people to scared to go to Libya and say "You're all a bunch of murderous, heathen, animalistic Belgian farkwads who can't take an outsider's criticism without going completely nuclear."

I see the conspiracy theories are falling short of the mark here today. The movie was actually made and overdubbed by an Al Qaeda sympathizer posing as an Egyptian Copt using the cover of an Israeli name to inflame islamist sentiment in the Maghrib so as to spark demonstrations in order to poison relations between the U.S. and regional countries so the money would get turned off so economic turmoil would bring in hard-line islamist governments so they could organize a human wave attack on Israel and kill all teh Joos once and for all. You guys just aren't reading between the lines hard enough.

I'll give it a shot...

THIS MOVIE WAS CREATED AND PROMOTED FOR ONE REASON:

TO INFLAME ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISTS INTO ATTACKING AMERICAN INTERESTS,
WEAKENING THE STATE FOR AN EVENTUAL CHRISTIAN THEOCRACY!

stewmadness: Who gives a flying shiat? The movie was dumb not offensive. I'm sick of these mother fooking muslims on this mother fooking planet.

And the movie excuse is bullshiat anyhow. 9....11.....

I wish they's stop pussyfooting around, make some uniforms, grab some AKs, and let's get this thing started for real. But they won't because they are pussies.


Wow, that's a pretty good parody of a dick-waving, jingoistic Neanderthal banging their tiny fists in impotent rage... Well done.

Yes, I remember when they RPGed the Ambassador fom Yemen for being flagrantly non-White and non-Christian.

I think those were Mormons. They're the ones who believed that color of skin showed whether you were sinful or not. That is until a revelation came along to save the church from being sued out of existence.

Muhammad had lots of convenient "revelations." In one of them, God said he got to bang his adopted son's ex-wife.

wow, Muhammed got to bang all sorts of women by god's command and Jesus gets crucified.
Jesus really got the short end of the stick.


And the long end. Hey-o!

You likely have the wrong equipment for that task.

At this point I'm starting to think this film is this generations "Manos : The Hands of Fate"

He doesnt exist literally. He was identified by name and supposedly an isreali living in California. Both California and Israel say they have no record of him and have no idea who he is.

I have a feeling that situation will not last long.

Anonymous might be able to find this guy.
