Morton and Chesser "asserted in pertinent part that 'we will never tolerate the mocking or insulting of any one of the prophets,' and explained that the Islamic ruling on this situation was that 'the punishment is death.' "
She lied. She twisted their words, meaning, and intent. Violence wasn't incited. No direct threat was made. Mohammad's comments provided information and analysis.
A disclaimer accompanied his earlier first issue Al Qaeda magazine commentary. He said it "should not be deemed that (he's) displaying any advice or support, material or otherwise, for any institution deemed illegal or terroristic by the US government and its thought police."
Muhammad and Chesser responded responsibly to South Park's blasphemy. Menges claimed otherwise. She went further.
She called a legitimate Islamic site "radical." She said by "issuing (their) statement, they certainly knew that violence was likely to be incited by it anyway."
She said what she was ordered to say. Muhammad's prominence made him a marked man. Washington wanted him silenced.
On June 22, 2012, Politico.com headlined "Maker of 'South Park' threats gets 11 (and a half) years in prison," saying:
According to Eastern District of Virginia US Attorney Neil MacBride:
Muhammad "sought to inspire Muslims to engage in terrorism by providing justification for violence against civilians in the name of Islam."

He "utilized the internet to incite fear and terror by encouraging violence and radicalization, and he will now pay for those crimes with today's sentence."
Media scoundrels regurgitate official lies. They support them. They pronounce guilt by accusation. They do it all the time.
They're involved in silencing the best, brightest, and most honest critics of American lawlessness. They support what demands condemnation.
Muhammad and others like him pay dearly. Doing the right thing is dangerous. Muslims in America today suffer most of all.
