Space porn: These images are (quite literally) out of this world
HEMET, Calif. (AP) — The public face for the anti-Muslim film inflaming the Middle East is a Vietnam War veteran whose unabashed hatred of radical Muslims has drawn the attention of civil libertarians.
Film promoter Steve Klein has taken center stage in the unfolding international drama. He’s given a stream of interviews about the film and the filmmaker, who is in hiding.
The film, “Innocence of Muslims,” has been blamed for inflaming mobs that attacked U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya this week as well as U.S. Embassy in Yemen on Thursday.
Klein says he visits mosques and confronts young Muslim men who are training as suicide bombers.
The Southern Poverty Law Center says they have labeled two of the organizations Klein is affiliated with as hate groups.

40 years ago the Apollo 8 mission flew up to the moon, orbited it ten times and then returned to Earth. This picture was taken from that flight and shows the Earth as it seemingly rises in similar fashion to a sunrise.
Sunrise from Expedition 36
NASA Flight Engineer Karen L. Nyberg of Expedition 36 took this photo of the sun rising -- a sight they saw nearly 16 times per day due to the speed of the International Space Station's orbit around the earth.
