Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was the only person to end up in jail after the attack by Islamic jihadists in Benghazi one year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
After President Obama and his top aides blamed the attack on Nakoula’s “Innocence of Muslims” movie trailer posted on Youtube, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton promised the filmmaker would be arrested and prosecuted.
But on his last full day in custody – not for anything to do with Benghazi but for parole violations in a fraud case – Nakoula told WND he made the movie and wrote his new book, “Innocence,” to warn America about the threat of Islamic jihad.
“We don’t need Sept. 11 again. We don’t need Nidal Hasan again,” he told WND, referring to the Muslim Army officer who killed 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas.
The Egyptian-born Coptic Christian said Americans also need to be more aware of Islamic persecution of Christians in Egypt.
He dedicates his book — described on the cover as “the original script and storyboards for ‘Innocence of Muslims’”– to Stevens and the three other Americans who died in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty and Sean Smith.
