FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN OBAMA’S AMERICA: An interview with Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the imprisoned filmmaker behind ‘Innocence of Muslims.’ “The NYT forefronts the fact that Nakoula angry and without remorse. I think he should be angry, and the NYT should show far more concern about free speech and political persecution.”

Plus, from the comments: “Maybe he can be called as a witness during S. Rice’s confirmation hearings.” Now that would be fun. The other notable thing about that NYT story is the rowback on the whole video-as-cause line.
