Has anyone ever apologized to Nakoula Basseley Nakoula?
If the name doesn't ring a bell, let me jog your memory. Nakoula was the man who made a video about Muhammad and was blamed for Benghazi by President Obama, U.N.

OK, I understand politicians lie. I get that. But even so, shouldn't Nakoula Basseley Nakoula's life have enough value in the eyes of our leaders so one of them would step forward and offer him an apology? Or will his life always be collateral damage in the Benghazi scandal?
