Federal authorities have identified a Coptic Christian in southern California who is on probation after his conviction for financial crimes as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast, a U.S. law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday.

Anonymous apparatchik outs film maker to the Jihad because the Jihad killed somebody. A convenient circularity there. Who does the Justice Department work for again?
I saw some of the trailer for this thing, its a piece of crap nobody is going to watch. Until the US government makes the producer a martyr for Coptic Christians anyway. Then -everybody- will watch.
