As members of the media camp out for a third straight day at the end of tiny a cul-de-sac in Cerritos, many reporters were becoming blurry eyed hoping to be the first to snap a photo of one of the most famous figures on the planet, controversial Anti-Islamic Film Maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.

With a heat index well over 110 degrees expected for Saturday in parts of Southern California, Nakoula continues to be barricaded inside his two-story air-conditioned home with members of his family.

With Nakoula hidden inside the home, attorney Steve Seiden, provided a brief statement to the media on Friday afternoon, after he and another man met inside the Park Street home.  Seiden, who would not reveal any specific details about his personal or professional details about his relationship with Nakoula,  demanded that members of the media “leave them alone” saying his client and family “had become prisoners in their own home.”

“Disgusting and reprehensible.” said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “Truly abhorrent,” an outraged White House official told an international conference.  Were they talking about the murder of four Americans in Libya? Or perhaps the hoisting of an Islamist flag over the U.S. Embassy in Cairo? No. For that they stuck to diplomatic speak. For the president, the harshest language was:  “I strongly condemn the outrageous attack.”  For Clinton it was that the US is heartbroken and she condemned “this senseless act of violence.” But “disgusting and reprehensible” and “truly abhorrent ” were reserved for an amateurish and silly film by… Read more »
