Skip to comments.Benghazi attack suspect 'compliant but not cooperative' in federal custody

Mike Rogers, the chair of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, told CNN Khattala had been compliant but not cooperative through 10 days of interrogation on a navy ship before being transferred to Washington for a civilian trial. Rogers said Khattala should be classified as an enemy combatant and held at Guantánamo Bay.
Rogers downplayed reports regarding the usefulness of information gained from Khattala in those 10 days.
He said: He was not obstinate, he was not pushing back. He likely gave details of some things, but not to the point where an FBI agent would say 'Bingo, we've got something that could be actionable intelligence.' We want intelligence that is useful 10 days is not enough.
He's been compliant but not cooperative, so I doubt that changed once he was read his rights and once he understood the right not to talk at all.
On Saturday, Carl Tobias, Williams professor of law at the University of Richmond, told the Guardian it was not certain whether information gained from Khattala on the ship would be admissable in a civilian court.
This is difficult to know because it is unclear what was asked in what circumstances, said Tobias. Some have reported that he was not given Miranda warnings and if he were not, it may be difficult to use his statements.
Rogers said Khattala had now gone through the courts system, he has pled not guilty, he was given his Miranda rights. He will have a US taxpayer-paid attorney for his defence.

I don’t know what it will take for the RATS to realize that you can’t deal with these people with our normal justice system. Next thing you know this guy will be freed to the streets with a green card.
He’s just here to try and take some heat off Benghazi for Hillary and Obama. They’ll probably release him after the election.
Seriously thought the suspect was Hillary.
Will he then be given amnesty?
That was the purpose of not trying him in a military court. Now he has all the time and lawyers he needs, paid for by the US taxpayers that he would like to kill someday.
This is the strategy the radical left learned from Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn when they govt. dropped their charges to avoid revealing how they gathered the information to find them out. Holder and Obama have learned their lessons in Chicago form domestic terrorists.
He is gettng paid to take the heat off Bengazi, he should pull a Lois Lerner and take the 5th and refuse to testify...
