Glenn Reynolds, aka Instapundit, has seriously lost it:
WHY BARACK OBAMA SHOULD RESIGN. Just for the record, this is what it looked like for a man who made a film that made the Obama Administration uncomfortable:
Here’s the key bit: “Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”
Glenn Reynolds is a "law professor". You would think that a "law professor" would realize certain things, like you don't omit facts! For example, they were taking the filmmaker in to question him if rather he violated the terms of his probation. Reynolds makes no mention of that. He totally omits the actual reason/motive for this questioning. Talk about irresponsible. If I were Reynold's boss, I would seriously question rather he has the ability to teach the law faithfully.
And it doesn't stop there. Reynolds adds in this part "from a reader":
MORE STILL: Reader Jack Moss writes: “Probation is not a law enforcement function, it’s under the court. If his probation officer wanted to question him about the use of a computer, that broke his probation fine. But that wouldn’t include questions about making an anti-Islamic movie. It’s irrelevant. That means that the FBI showed up outside their jurisdiction for a reason given by their superiors. The question then is who ordered them there.”
This is called "making shit up". It wasn't the FBI that came after him, it was federal officials with the aide of the local authorities. Look at the picture above, which Reynolds posted. Is that FBI or is that local police?
But apparently the "law professor" doesn't realize there are more federal authorities than just the FBI. Again, this was brought forth because of the courts, a separate branch of our government.
How in the hell can someone be a "law professor" when they don't even understand the basic three branches of our government?????
And there is the final case, that I made yesterday, that could spark an actual federal investigation. Did Nakoula Basseley Nakoula produce this film to spark this outrage? There is no doubt that al Qaeda is using this film as propaganda now and that begs the question if this was the intent of the filmmaker. If so, then there are good grounds for treason.
I got to say that this is what I expected to see following Drudge's pushing of the Obama administration going after a "Christian filmmaker" yesterday. Drudge sparks the outrage and idiots, like Glenn Reynolds, take hold and run with it. Starting tomorrow this will be the talk of Fox and then we can expect some crazy congressmen to start talking about it. Hell, I give it a month and Darrell Issa will start hearings. This is far from over.
