The filmmaker blamed by the Obama administration for sparking the Benghazi terrorist attack will be released from a Texas jail Monday after serving a year in prison on an unrelated charge.
Breitbart News reports
that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula will finish his term at an undisclosed halfway house.
"I’m still okay. I’m better, but I’m worried, because I’m afraid," Nakoula said about his impending release.
"Anything can happen – not from Muslim people. I’m not afraid of them, but from something else. I just don’t want to go back to jail again," said Nakoula, an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian,
A film trailer from the "Innocence of Muslims" released by Nakoula on YouTube was blamed by the administration for causing a riot at the Benghazi facility where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on Sept. 11, 2012.
President Barack Obama apologized about the making of the film, saying, "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
Hillary Clinton, then secretary of State, told the father of one of the Navy SEAL's killed in the attack, "We will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted," Politico reported.
Nakoula was arrested on Sept. 27 for violating probation on a 2010 bank fraud conviction.
However, it was later revealed that the Benghazi incident was a coordinated attack by terrorists, and had nothing to do with the video produced by Nakoula that portrayed the Prophet Mohammed as a womanizer.
