Mark Cuban Helped Produce a Movie that Jihadists Used in the Murder of U.S. Troops

Hillary Clinton has reportedly given Mark Cuban a front row seat for the upcoming presidential debate on Monday Sep. 26. Cuban is widely known as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. But he also helped produce the 2007 movie, Redacted. Islamic jihadists later used parts of this film to help inspire another jihadist to murder two American troops.

The Telegraph reported in 2011 on how a jihadist murdered two U.S. troops after watching parts of the movie Redacted.

In an emotional confession to a Frankfurt court as his murder trial began on Wednesday, Arid Uka said he had become radicalised by online extremist propaganda before carrying out a lone gun attack US Air Force bus in March. . . . 
Uka blamed a video purporting to show American servicemen raping a young Muslim girl for prompting him to try and stop other US soldiers from getting to Afghanistan. 
“I thought what I saw in that video, these people would do in Afghanistan,” he told the court. 
But the rape footage, billed as an authentic video entitled “what was done to our sisters,” turned out to be a fake using footage scene from the 2007 anti-Iraq war film “Redacted,” directed by Hollywood’s Brian de Palma.

The Daily Caller also reported on the murders and provided information on the movie.

The movie — which also depicted U.S. soldiers as racist murderers — was released as U.S. forced [sic] stepped up their successful offensive against Al-Qaeda in Iraq, Saddam Hussein supporters and Iran-sponsored Shia groups in 2006 and 2007. 
The movie was widely praised in the movie industry and by left-of-center cultural groups. The movie and De Palma won awards at the 2007 Venice Film Festival, and it received a “Youth Jury Award” from the 2008 Amnesty International Film festival.

The article noted that Mark Cuban “helped finance the movie” and added that “[p]roducer credits went to Cuban and several of his colleagues.”

Cuban has since become a vocal opponent of Donald Trump and supporter of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Breitbart reported that Clinton has given Cuban a front row seat for the Monday debate.

This won’t be the first time Clinton will have a controversial guest at one of her public appearances.

On Aug. 8, Clinton gave Seddique Mateen a prominent seat on the stage behind her as she delivered a speech in Florida. Mateen is the father of Omar Mateen, an Islamic jihadist who murdered 49 people in Florida in June of this year. Police later killed Omar Mateen.

The Clinton campaign later disavowed Seddique Mateen following public pressure for it to do so.
