Under the Constitution, the jackasses who made the film in question cannot be arrested for making it, but a case could made - conceivably - that they are guilty of incitement to riot and the reckless endangerment (and possibly worse) of American citizens.

But I'm no lawyer, and maybe nothing can be done.

In that case, some new laws are needed. Freedom of speech under the Constitution has never been absolute, and from what I gather from CNN, the film may have been made explicitly to outrage the Muslim world, like shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater when there is no fire.

Which, for the benefit of our overseas friends, *is* illegal.
