Nakoula Basseley Nakoula: Man Behind ‘Innocence Of Muslims’ Is ‘Meth-Making Federal Informer’

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula Served Jail Time, Made Meth

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man allegedly behind the anti-Islam movie Innocence of Muslims, is actually a federal informer spilled to investigators about an elaborate bank fraud scheme he was involved in to avoid jail time and has also been arrested for making meth, a new reports show.

The Daily Mail reported the allegations against Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and the checkered past he had before putting together the incendiary movie. Nakoula reportedly opened a series of bank accounts under fake names, then transfered money between them with fake checks and withdrawing it before those checks bounced.

The scheme netted Nakoula Basseley Nakoula 21 months in prison after the FBI caught on in 2009, but it could have been longer if Nakoula hadn’t turned in the ringleader of the $800,000 scam, the Smoking Gun reported.

The fraud was not the only legal transgression for Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. In 1997 he was charged with intent to manufacture methamphetamine, The Daily Beast reported.

Nakoula had initially distanced himself from his role on Innocence of Muslims, saying he was involved in its creation but was not the director, The Huffington Post reported. Early reports centered around a man named Sam Bacile, whose existence was later brought into doubt.

Law enforcement officials later identified Nakoula, whom the Daily Mail referred to as a “meth-making federal informer” as the man behind the film and cell phones for Bacile and Nakoula were traced to the same address.

Innocence of Muslims, which mocks the prophet Muhammad and the Islamic religion, has been cited for inciting violence against the US overseas, with an attack on the US embassy in Libya leaving ambassador Chris Stevens dead.

The Daily Mail figured that with Nakoula Basseley Nakoula being released from prison in September 2010 and moving into a halfway house where he remained on and off until June 2011, much or all of the script for Innocence of Muslims would have been written while he was either in prison or the halfway house.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula now has police protection at his Cerritos, California, home for fear of retaliation.

    Sounds like the man is a real scumbag, but that is still no reason for Koranimals to go nuts over a very stupid homemade movie, that America had nothing to do with! Besides, this was a planned attack, not just a spur of the moment riot, and on 9/11, plus, Obama had 48 hrs advance notice the attacks would take place and they had No Marines on the ground to protect the Embassy! Also, the embassy, in Egypt, the Marines are not allowed to have Ammo, but the Ambassador allows the Muslim Guards to have ammo! Now, so far, we have four dead Americans, and Libya is Obama's baby, all his very own. He went into Libya without Congressional Approval, he had Two Days of Warning, It was 9/11, My God, does the man have half a brain, or was this planned to happen? Obama has proven himself to be America's Domestic Enemy, not to be Trusted, Believed, or Voted for!

    If a bunch of stupid Muslims who once were supported by USA held responsible for terrorism and the America is making state terrorism all over the Muslim world, then why not the bunch of Christians must be held responsible keeping the truly equity across the religions. The state terrorist Raymond Davis was taken by the US, and what about the Terry Jones and other similar persons who have hurt millions of Muslim and violated the basic human rights just in the name of freedom of speech!
