  •  Sam Bacile sounds like "imbecile." Maybe (7+ / 0-)

    my impression comes from reading to many Ben Johnson plays.

      •  Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (7+ / 0-)

        The PBS-Atlanta story referred above said that "Bacile" is a Coptic Christian named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.  Note the middle name and how there have been multiple spellings of "Bacile".  No Israelis were apparently involved.

                over the kerning in the bush AWOL documents that republican ratfuckers "lewaked" to dan rather to undermine the story of bush going AWOL when he was in the national air guard.

                whether the documents' kerning could have been produced on a given model of IMB selectric typewriters was a big part of the discussion. the whole thing was over my head and bored me to tears.

                  the Dept of Ag. in DC involved the use of the IBM Selectric Composer cited in the case. I was pretty sure that Rather was set up, since the "evidence" was so obscure and came out rather quickly. When I saw photocopies of the document in question, I didn't automatically think, "Ah, that's been done on the IBM Selectric Composer!" I even attended a class for several days run by IBM to learn how to use the thing, although the manual was very good.

                  Could the film be fundie Christians trying to bring about Armageddon or something else? Likely the film was just used by militants who had been planning a 9/11 anniversary attack. The film does have a decidedly flaky provenance, though.
