Ninth Circuit Orders Google to Pull 'Innocence of Muslims' from YouTube
On February 26th the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered Google to take Innocence of Muslims down from YouTube.
This is the "American-made" film which The New York Times described as "denigrating to Islam" and which the Times insists led to the September 11, 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate. Yes, it's the same video then-U.S. Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice described as causal in the Benghazi attack when she took Hillary Clinton's place on the December 16, 2012 Sunday morning show circuit.
According to AFP, the Ninth Circuit "reversed [a] district court's denial... of a preliminary injunction requiring the removal from YouTube of [the film]."
Innocence of Muslims's filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was sentenced to one year in a U.S. prison less than two months after the Benghazi attack took place. In June of 2013, he stated he intended to finish the film after his release.
