New details emerge of anti-Islam film_s mystery producer. Innocence Of Muslims movie.
At the heart of the mystery was the filmmaker himself, a man identified in the casting call as Sam Bassiel, on the call sheet as Sam Bassil and reported at first by news outlets as Sam Bacile.
But federal officials consider that man to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who was convicted in 2009 of bank fraud.
The FBI contacted the filmmaker because of the potential for threats, a federal law enforcement official told CNN Thursday. But he is not under investigation.

With media parked at his residence in Cerritos, California, Nakoula called the Los Angeles County Sheriff_s Department Wednesday night to report a disturbance, said spokesman Steve Whitmore. He wanted local police to protect him.
When news of his movie first broke, the filmmaker identified himself as Sam Bacile and told the Wall Street Journal that he was a 52-year-old Israeli-American real estate developer from California. He said Jewish donors had financed his film.
Folks it comes down to Sam Bacile or whatever his name is. We know any mocking of the religion would cause riot and protests in middle east Not Here. We have seen it in the past. Knowingly putting any life in danger is a very irresponsible act. If someone were to drive drunk and kill one or more person. Most prosecutor will prosecute as a voluntary Manslaughter. Now we have at least 4 dead Americans, Sam Bacile or nakoula nakoula should be charged with at least 4 voluntary manslaughter along with other charges. Freedom of speech has its limitations. If my speech causes physical harm or death it is not protected. If i were to burn a flag and someone were to catch on fire because of my gross negligence I should be prosecuted for bodily harm not for burning a flag. He knew about the possible consequences thus he intended cause these problems. He and others involved should be prosecuted.
