Some movement on Benghazi.

Maybe we'll find out if it was all about a video.
June 17, 2014
Statement from Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby

I can confirm that on Sunday, June 15 the U.S. Military -- in cooperation with law enforcement personnel -- captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah, a key figure in the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012. He is in U.S. custody in a secure location outside of Libya. There were no civilian casualties related to this operation, and all U.S. personnel involved in the operation have safely departed Libya.


" cooperation with law enforcement personnel..." so Eric Holder's corrupt "Justice" Department will be handling the prosecution.  Now, I don't buy the conspiracy kooks about how Obis is a secret muzzie or nonsense like that.  However, I do believe that the DOJ zeal for prosecuting foreign terrorists is lacking, and that the misguided zeal of the ACLU types will ensure that this dude gets a "fair trial,"  eventually.

Sometime, in about 5-7 years, a trial will be completed, and he will either be set free for some obscure legal nicety not being observed, or he will be found guilty of some minor offense and get a few years, or more likely, time served.

The war on terror MUST be a true war, with military forces, strategy and tactics.  Not, Harvard Law 101 watered down by Community Organizing 404 hatred for our nation, and executed by lawyers instead of warriors.

Since military forces were involved in taking this Benghazi thug, and this guy is not a U.S. citizen, the correct response should have been to take out an enemy combatant and then quietly retire from the scene.  No need for "law enforcement personnel" to be involved in any way.

As for dealing with hostage takers, the Teddy Roosevelt approach of "This government wants Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead." should be the model.  Not assembling a flock of cowering diplomats or a herd of lazy lawyers, but a Batallion of Marines, or a fleet of ships, or an aluminum overcast of bombers.  Don't make threats, but make promises, and then carry them out.

The Arabs and Persians understand force and strong leaders, and will not fear, respect or avoid conflict with a nation which is weak.  We are weak now.

Oh goodie!  Another squirrel in the basket for the MSM to play with!
 John (NTA), we don't always get what we want. But for me, I would take this individual on a vacation and drop him off where the water is above 80°. At no time did I say anything about landing or a parachute. If this is the way they want to resolve problems, we can do it, too. His paperwork we get lost, just like it does for the veterans who fought there. I cannot resolve every problem in this country, but nobody can. 80 ° is prime for shark infested water, let them clean up this trash.

Sly, this would solve the problem of the squirrel.

After everything is said and done, this so-called "leader" needs to do much more to earn respect. The people that this Nation have sent to Washington, had better grow up and not repeat the mistakes of the past.
Ahmed Abu Khatallah was never hiding!
He was giving interviews to the NYT and CNN for the last 1.5 years at the bar outside his hotel
Is the administration just throwing another "Look, Squirrel!" at the MSM to get the IRS E-mail debacle off the front-page?
I'm really glad there is nothing going-down on the international scene, so that the SCOAMF can play a few-rounds in southern California and then do some fund-raisers in NYC.

Not My Circus.
Not My Clown-Show...

 @John (not the Armorer): Ya gotta remember that ol' Eric The Unjust's firm represented Muslim terrorists as defense lawyers before His Royal Majesty upped the anty and made him AG!
How 'bout that.......
