Who knows, maybe he’s just happy to have three hots and a cot. Well, that and his head. Poor guy sounds like a hostage reading propaganda.
In November, Nakoula was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Christina Snyder to one year behind bars for lying to his probation officer about his film and using fake names in the production of the project, which made him a target for militant Muslims around the world. The deceptions violated the terms of his probation for a bank and credit-card fraud conviction in 2010. Nakoula declined to comment on the sentence.
Yet, Nakoula, who must serve four years of supervised release following his prison term, refused to criticize the Obama administration.
“Who am I to criticize the commander in chief?” Nakoula said. “Who am I? He knows more than me.”
When asked if he believed his film was used as a scapegoat, or if he was unfairly prosecuted — charged with probation violations related to his film — Nakoula became tight-lipped.
“No comment,” said Nakoula, who declined to be interviewed on camera and spoke to FoxNews.com in a series of phone calls from a location he did not want disclosed.
In the next breath, Nakoula profusely thanked the U.S. government “from the top to the bottom” for protecting him since his arrest.
“I would like to thank the United States government from the top to the bottom for protecting me,” he said. “They treat me very, very good since this happened until now.”
Imagine how he’d feel if he wasn’t in prison.
When asked about Rice’s promotion last week to National Security Adviser after she became the face of the White House effort to substitute him for Al Qaeda as the cause of the Benghazi attack, Nakoula was again unwilling to be critical of the Obama administration.
“Who am I to criticize the United States’ commander in chief? This is his decision,” he said. “It’s not my responsibility. It’s not my job.”
