Obama got his Benghazi fall guy; now letting the rest off the hook

Well, it’s been close to 21 months since the Islamist terrorist attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi where four Americans — Ambassador. Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods, and Glenn Doherty lost their lives.

And in all that time, well, we just nabbed the one fella who was a supposed on- the-ground ringleader. In a funny coincidence, it just so happens that Ahmed Abu Khattalah was part of the Islamist forces the U.S. was supporting — with arms — in the fight against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi in Operation Zero Footprint. Khattala seems to have a connection with the 17th February Martyrs Brigade, loosely related to Ansar al-Sharia, who may have been assigned guard duty of the consulate.

According to a Foxnews.com report by Adam Housely, “Despite President Obama’s promise to stay focused on hunting down those responsible for the 2012 Benghazi attack — and despite a recent arrest touted as a major takedown — sources say little has been done to nab the other suspects.

According to multiple sources on the ground, including some with direct knowledge of the operations to identify and hunt the Benghazi suspects, intelligence that could have been acted upon at times has been ignored or put on hold.

Further, they say, the recent capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala — now on a ship bound for the U.S., expected to arrive this weekend — was an easy one.”

Is this just another example of that sickness I referred to as Obama Attention Deficit Disorder (O-ADD)? It’s part of the disease strain related to BBDS (Blame Bush Derangement Syndrome).

“He was low-hanging fruit,” one source told Fox News. “We could have picked him up months and months ago and there was no change, or urgency to do this now.”

Au contraire mon ami, there was indeed an REAL urgency for the Obama administration to do this RIGHT now — for media distraction and to shift the focus from the countless scandals — not phony — plaguing the White House.

What is even more troubling is that Khattala is being treated as a common criminal afforded U.S. constitutional rights — he is an unlawful enemy combatant. Really, he is the Obama fall guy — how tragic for this fella. The good thing is that he will soon be lawyered up at U.S. taxpayer expense and possibly may still get to have mango smoothies as he awaits prosecution.

Fox says, “according to sources, the United States has a “target list” that initially contained about 10 suspects identified within days of the attack and eventually grew to more than 20 as American Special Forces conducted surveillance in and around Benghazi.

The four groups on the “target list” include Ansar al-Sharia, with the top target being the “Emir of Ansar al Sharia,” Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu. He was a prisoner at Guantánamo Bay for more than five years and at the time was classified by analysts at the prison as “a probable member of al- Qaida.”

Despite this significant threat to American security and allies, bin Qumu was released as part of an amnesty for militants in 2008. Sources told Fox News that intelligence has shown his involvement in the attacks, and actionable intelligence has for some reason been ignored.”

In this same group, but way at the bottom of the list, is, yep, you guessed it, Khattala.

As Fox News — the most trusted name in news — previously reported last fall, “American Special Forces on multiple occasions weren’t allowed to go after harder and more important targets, even though they had multiple chances and opportunities to do so over the course of 16 months.”

“Ansar al-Sharia is saturating the whole region of eastern Libya with money, training and personnel. They are now the biggest organization in town,” one intelligence source said. “[Khattala] is the actionable guy and the target, but the [al-Qaida] network is much larger. He is tied to terrorists throughout the region by our guys on the ground. Overall he [Khattala] is small potatoes to the larger al-Qaida and terrorist network in the region,” said another intelligence officer.”

Of course, one can only hope that Mr. Khattala did provide some useful intelligence — but nothing we didn’t already know.

It seems that the apprehension of Ahmed Abu Khattala will go over about as well as the Rose Garden announcement of Bowe Bergdahl coming home — heard anything about that episode lately? Didn’t think so, just another case of O-ADD.

      • Wow got nothing better to do then troll a Web page. Glad to see you making waves in your own kiddie pool.

      • not trolling,,,,just providing some facts for people who seem to hate anything and everything that has to do with the POTUS
        nobody provides or disputes facts,,,it seems like this is just a site to follow Allen along and tear down everything that going on,,,and it doesn’t matter what it is,,,pick a topic,,,Allen tears
        it down,,,and everybody follows along,,talking about how
        un-‘merican he is,,,and how ‘merican they are
        if it wasn’t so sad and pathetic,,,it would be funny….

      • No you’re a TROLL who’s trapped in the corner by this quagmire of an administration and your ego has been destroyed so horribly by their actions that you feel compelled to lash out because quite frankly Bathhouse Barry Hussein al-Maliki ODrama has clearly abandoned all of you imbeciles that voted for him. SUUUUUCCCKERRRRSS!!!!!

      • If you weren’t so pathetic in your blind love for your hero barry, and filled with such hate and anger over your denial of the truth. You would almost be funny

      • Quit whining like a pus sy as it is clear you’ve been indoctrinated by PMSNBC… You must be one of the LGBT baby killing co ck gobblers.

      • I’d like to see things from your perspective, but I can’t put my head that far up my ass Stop watch CNN and MSNBC

    • real leaders??
      Who?,,,McGranpa McCain?,,who introduced us to Sara the Dim?,,,Mitch?,,
      Christie?,,,Ayatollah Rick??….Rubio??,,,too funny!
      Romney?,(He has the leadership potential of a cinder block)
      Who will lead us out of the wilderness that Republican party put us into??
      I’ll wait for your list of “real ‘mericans”,,,with real ‘merican names…..

      • ANDDDD every last one of them would do a much better job then the Criminal-In-Chief you would bend over for so rapidly. You d!ck dribbling fagggot.

      • YOU Stupid LIB DEMS and RINOS got us in this MESS and ole barry is getting us in DEEPER DAILY, while you Obamabot Convenient Idiots stand back and cheer your LOSER on!!!! Talk about IGNORANT!!!!! But then, hey you are also one of the FOOLS who put this LIAR in chief in office TWICE!! The EPITOME of STUPIDITY!!

  2. Its interesting that they got this guy so easily, who has never really hid from anyone, and they knew of his where-abouts for quite some time, where as most all the senior leaders of these groups are very hard to find or get access to and are pretty well covered in security. But well thats just me and the way I think when it comes to things such as these. Too much criminal minds I suppose. But really has Obama done anything on the up and up…. This was just another move to appease the nation as his credibility drops to record lows… The people aren’t buying his BS anymore, not even from his own camp as they are trying to distance themselves to at least get some of the stench off their reputations…

  3. “The most important thing is for us to find Osama bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him.”
    – W, 9/13/01
    “I don’t know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don’t care. It’s not that important. It’s not our priority.”
    – W, 3/13/02
    wow,,,that lasted what,,, 6 months????

    out and out lying to the American people was what it was all about,,,
    was everyone screaming here,,about this???,,,yrs and yrs of nothing??
    thought so,,,,,,

    • So Osama bin Laden was clearly an enemy who did not deteriorate our constitution, destroy our economy, eradicate healthcare, cover up 8+ scandals, etc… But had he done so I would expect that from the enemy. However, the Pus sy-In-Chief that you so humbly love especially when you get that thrill up your leg each time he lies to your face is totally acceptable huh!!!

      What a douchebag!!! Suck it punk!!!

    • So you blast politicians for lying, but it is okay for your hero barry to lie. it’s okay for barry to usurp the constitution and whatever laws he deems, irrelevant to his cause.
      Your an idiot and a brainless troll. Go back and go to your troll school, you aren’t all that

    • YES and he was FOUND and KILLED thanks to BUSH and OUR HEROES, ole barry was against going after one of his muslim bros!! Of course Egomanical Hypocrite LIAR that he is, he tried to take Credit for it!!! Despicable as Usual!!!

      • Giving Bush any credit for Bin Laden’s death is sheer insanity. Obama took credit for it because he was personally responsible for it happening.

  4. President Bush, discussing the Iraq war with Christian broadcaster Pat Robertson, after Robertson told him he should prepare the American people for casualties, and that it would be the right thing to do,,,,,
    “Oh, no, we’re not going to have any casualties.”

    11/15/2002, Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense
    “Five days or five months, but it certainly isn’t going to last longer.”

    03/16/2003, Dick Cheney, Vice President
    “My belief is we will, in fact, be greeted as liberators. . . . I think it will go relatively quickly, . . . in weeks rather than months.”

    Did any of you scream and jump up and down about this,,,??
    nah,,,,,good sheepies follow their leader blindly…

    But oh yea,,,we got to get that Kenyan, Mooslim, Socialist, Marxist out of the
    white house,,,,,by any and all means,,,because he’s un-american,,,

    • “But oh yea,,,we got to get that Kenyan, Mooslim, Socialist, Marxist out of the
      white house,,,,,by any and all means,,,because he’s un-american,,,”

      THERE YOU GO THAT’S ALL YOU HAD TO SAY!!

    • 6 Years your hero has had to make changes for the better. Nope instead Your muslim-in-chief has aided and abetted the muslim/islamist horde. There are 35 Islamist camps here in the US. Your hero let’s them stay and train for war.
      You of course ignore all that, to deflect from the truth of the matter.
      The truth is you are in denial, that barry is dismantling this country piece by piece everyday. You are the idiot who is being led to the slaughter house and are all too willing to go freely, because you follow your hero barry, blindly
      You deserve everything that is going to be coming your way. Oh yes that means the Sharia law that will have your gutless life and your empty head on a plate

      • These Mind Numbed Convenient Idiots of Ole barry their Illegal Incompetent LIAR in chief, have No brain! Like their mentor ole barry their LIAR in chief, they have a strong Allergy to TRUTH!!! Their Anti American Anti Military muslim pres can spew all the LIES and SWILL he wants and these Morons swallow it all!

      • They project, deflect and attack our character only to mask their own short comings. They Repeat what they hear in the Main Stream Media and take is as gospel. They are being laughed at by the Democrats and especially barry, harry, nancy and of course valarie.
        Lambs being led to their end and they have no clue

      • This is how and why evil ones like George Soros can tell them what to do. Soros is no dummy.

  5. We need to educate or vaccinate against O-ADD (obama attention deficit disorder). In either case, there needs to be an eradication.

  6. I wonder how George Soros is going to get his gal hillary out of this mess. He may not be able to buy his/her way out of this one. Meanwhile, look for Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn to create a distraction as their heads swell with the attention.

  7. You act like 21 months was a long delay, yet it took 116 to bring Osama Bin Laden to justice. You’re a joke, West.

  8. They got the fall guy? Humph, there’s still the coverup trying to blame the attack on a video; obvious lies by the administration; hiding witnesses, emails, etc.. I’m hoping this mess will at least complicate or doom Hillery’s run for President. Think “bump in the road” and “what difference does it make?” on election day.
