Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is Still in Prison (Can't Afford a Lawyer)

This guy is the ONLY person in jail for the attacks in Benghazi. 

Disgusting and disgraceful.

He has "no regrets".

The guy's got stones.

I urge you to read the whole thing.

This is troubling:

"Nakoula has not yet been officially released from prison. He is in a halfway house where he is allowed to leave the facility for a few hours a day but remains in federal custody. The federal authorities have promised to release him in September or earlier, according to Nakoula. Nakoula represents himself as he cannot afford a lawyer. He described prison life as “lonely and depressing” and thanked the prison guards for protecting him, but he declined to describe his prison experience."

Is there no organization that has stepped up to assist him with legal fees? 

Please spread the word. The Lawfare program is quoted here, but it's not clear if they are assisting him.
