Filmmaker Hillary & Obama Framed Still Rots in Prison
by Joseph Klein
The mainstream press has suddenly woken up to the Obama administration's trashing of the First Amendment after one of their own – the Associated Press – became the administration's latest target. But the mainstream press and self-styled civil liberties groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union disgracefully chose to ignore the canary in the coal mine. He is the hapless and forgotten video producer Mark Basseley Youssef, an Egyptian-born Christian and U.S. citizen whose First Amendment rights have been sacrificed at the altar of the Obama administration's accommodations to the Muslim world.
Youssef has been rotting in jail in California on trumped up charges since September 27, 2012. Youssef's real offense was to produce the anti-Islam video the Obama administration falsely blamed for the attack in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. The truth is that Islamist jihadists took the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in a pre-mediated terrorist attack. The Obama administration knew the real cause of the violence well before it chose to make Youssef and his crude video the scapegoat.
