A former al-Qaeda terrorist released from Guantanamo Bay is believed to be the leader of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the US Ambassador, it was revealed on Wednesday.

Sufyan Ben Qumu, who was reportedly once Osama bin Laden's driver, was let out of the US military detention center in Cuba in 2007 and turned over to the government of Muammar Gaddafi on the condition he be kept behind bars.

From the article:

But, in 2010 Gaddafi freed him from the notorious Abu Salim prison in Tripoli, along with 37 other prisoners, to celebrate the dictator's 41st year in power.

Am wondering where this information is leading to, and is the information accurate?

Meanwhile IRAN flys men, weapons and provisions over IRAQ into SYRIA. All happily sponsored by Russia’s Putin. Iranian warships have passed thru Suez canal with Egyptian brotherhood blessing transiting to E Mediterranean stations near Tel Aviv. LIBYAN Civil war trophy weapons, missiles, etc. disappeared where?

American intelligence services are despondent without interested users. MSM reports diddily squat puffs ball slanderous editorial infotainment designed to condition their consumers into the numbness of Islamic dhimmitude. . http://www.dhimmitude.org/

We are cascading into intentional global irrelevance. That was his hope and change.

Missing main point:

Gumu was released under Obama’s watch by Qadaffi in 2010. The Obonehead admin should have put him back in gitmo immediately. The Bush admin would have. Or wacked him...

From what is discernible from the net and from what is left on the net (looks like some things have been scrubbed (imho), court decisions with the help and defense of detainees, by Eric the Red Witholder, may have forced President Bush’s hand. Someone suggested Fast and Furious v. 2.0

One has to wonder if the report is accurate and Qadaffi was this stupid or was something else unreported or someone else involved in the release. Was Qadaffi bribed, threatened, or asked politely by someone to make the release. Having a difficult time buying it was due to Qadaffi’s anniversary of holding power. This appears coerced (imo). No proof, simply speculation.

Just like Bernanke and the former Treasurer, Paulson weren’t dumb. They all know exactly what they are doing, and even though they keep claiming ‘it’s in the best interest of America and Americans,’ their promises ALWAYS cause more harm, more theft, of American taxpayer dollars and lives.

You can’t consistently fail at every promise unless that was actually the goal. And if it’s the goal (which it is), then they are all orchestration to undermine America.

Why and for whom, are the questions.

The questions should be,
“When was he released from the Libyan prison?
“Was his release in accordance with the Agreement with the US Government as a condition of his GITMO release?
And “What event(s) precipitated his release?”

Concur, the story sounds incomplete. Khaddafi had at least as much to worry about from Al Q'aeda in Libya; if they weren't in The Suck or the Sandbox, they'd be raising hell at home, very uncool, and dangerous to the ruling class's luxurious, Europeanizing lifestyle.

Mouth-breathers like Gumu are dangerous to everyone; I can't see old Muammar just turning him loose for a jolly, festive ferial day.

Thank You for the response. New information is coming out. May not be any links yet though. There was a brief this am on the tele by a Former FBI official. The media may not be writing about it. The media may consider it too explosive. The jest was the official said gumu was released in March of 2010, and it was not Qadaffi making the release instead it was the rebels. This one is coming down around those who have spun it like a ton of manure. Serves them right for all the lies Americans have been told, and all the uninformative and misdirections stories (actual lies and they knew they were lying), and outright ridicule the media has dumped on the citizens.

That pesky internet and bloggers. If only the mainstream media had been the only news source they could have contained this and continued to spin this as a demonstration about a movie. Have to get that internet shut down before the election or we’re toast. Let’s spin the shutdown as a terrorist attack on the internet. Yeah, that’s the ticket!

Obummer and gang would love to "blame Bush", but not so fast:

Very much worth noting, though: Counterterror expert Aaron Zelin seems to think this is a case of mistaken identity. Qumu’s group is Ansar al-Sharia, based in Dernah. The group suspected in the consulate attack is Katibah Ansar al-Sharia, based in Benghazi. Someone may have heard “Ansar al-Sharia” and made the assumption that it was Qumu’s group, not the Benghazi one, that led the assault. Just something to note as reporters begin to chase this angle.

Obama official: Yes, Benghazi was a terrorist attack and there are “indications” Al Qaeda was involved; Update: Ringleader released from Gitmo in 2007?

If I was a betting man I would wager that this was a driveby hit on ambassador Stevens because he “knew too much” about why Hillary and Obama set up the Muslim brotherhood to take out Ghadaffi. The EU and the Fed profited immensely to the tune of trillions of ghadaffis money held by the EU banks and owed to ghadaffi

There is a lot more going on here than meets the eye, I do believe. Bottom line, it doesn't matter if they had "actionable intelligence" or not or if it was pre-planned or not. It was the anniversary of Sept. 11 and that, in an of itself, in a terrorist hotbed like Benghazi, should have been enough. For his part, Stevens was careless at best, stupid at worst to be there - he trusted the wrong people all the way around. Hillary, as SOS and responsible for security, was derelict in her duty to protect the consulate in Benghazi AND the embassy in Tripoli. A terrorist flag flying over the embassy in Egypt is an act of war against America and Hillary can take direct credit for the security failures there as well. As for Omuslim, his 'celebration tour' to Las Vegas, Letterman and the glitzy party with Beyonce/JayZ before Ambassador Stevens is laid to rest says it all. So does this:

Tie is to Holder not Bush:: Remeber the name Jennifer Daskal

Holder’s former firm, Covington & Burling represented 14 Gitmo detainees. Still looking to see which ones:
“Guantanamo Bay Detainees
We currently represent fourteen men detained at the United States Naval Station at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Most of the men have been detained for approximately eight years and none have been charged with any crimes. Following the decision by the Supreme Court in Boumediene v. Bush, 128 S. Ct. 2229 (2008), holding that the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus extends to detainees held at Guantánamo Bay, we are challenging the legality of our clients’ detentions in habeas proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Of the seven cases that have gone to merits hearings thus far, Covington has won four, lost two, and is awaiting a decision in one other. Two prior clients were released without a hearing.
The firm has been involved in the Guantánamo related litigation for the last six years. In addition to the on-going habeas corpus proceedings, our efforts have included: bringing cases for review of enemy combatant classification decisions in the D.C. Circuit under the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005; challenging the destruction of CIA torture tapes in federal court; filing amicus briefs and coordinating the amicus effort in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, 548 U.S. 557 (2006); filing amicus briefs in support of Supreme Court review in Moussaoui v. United States, 382 F.3d 483 (4th Cir.), cert denied, 544 U.S. 931 (2005); challenging the government’s practice of redacting information from documents given to security-cleared habeas counsel; and challenging the abusive medical and living conditions that the detainees experience at Guantánamo.”
http://www.cov.com/probonooverview/probono.aspx?show=morehighlights
I believe the CCR represented him. The CCR has strong ties to Covington & Burling:
“And then there is the Center for Constitutional Rights, a Marxist organization that for years has coordinated legal representation for terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay. The CCR has been attempting to convince Germany, France, Spain, and other countries to file war-crime indictments against former Bush administration officials, including President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary Rumsfeld. In representing America’s enemies, CCR has collaborated with many private lawyers, who also volunteered their services — several of whom are now working in the Obama Justice Department. Indeed, Holder’s former firm boasts that it still represents 16 Gitmo detainees (the number was previously higher). And, for help shaping detainee policy, Holder recently hired Jennifer Daskal for DOJ’s National Security Division — a lawyer from Human Rights Watch with no prior prosecutorial experience, whose main qualification seems to be the startling advocacy she has done for enemy combatants

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/228146/eric-holders-hidden-agenda/andrew-c-mccarthy
Jennifer Daskal
Jennifer Daskal is an American lawyer who serves as senior counsel for Human Rights Watch, and focuses on issues of terrorism, criminal law and immigration.[1][2] She is also currently a political hire at the Department of Justice, which is seeking to prosecute terror suspects through the criminal justice system instead of through military tribunals.[3][4]
A graduate of Harvard Law School, Cambridge and Brown University and a Marshall Scholar,[5] Daskal garnered attention after traveling to the countries to which Guantanamo captives have been released, to verify that those countries are abiding by the undertakings they made to the US Government to respect the returned captives’ human rights.[6]
On February 23, 2010, the New York Post reported that Daskal, Neal Katyal, and three other lawyers who had worked on behalf of the civil rights of Guantanamo captives, had been serving on the Obama administration’s task force reviewing the status of the remaining Guantanamo captives.[7] The paper had first questioned her appointment to the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, in July 2009, and then again in January 2010

From Michelle Malkin, Holder's former law firm did represent Gitmo detainees, but not Qumu:

Many readers have asked whether the firm represented Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the former Gitmo detainee released in 2007 — and now named as the possible lead plotter in the bloody attacks on our consulate personnel, staff, and private security contractors in Benghazi.

The left-wing organization that helped spring Qumu was the Center for Constitutional Rights.

Radical left-wing Center for Constitutional Rights represented Abu Sufian bin Qumu

DOJ Lawyers Who Represented Terrorism Suspects Detainees Are Identified

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Fox News has identified the seven anonymous Justice Department lawyers who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects.

Justice Department spokesman Matthew A. Miller confirmed the names to Fox News’ Mike Levine, but did not say whether any of the seven previously anonymous lawyers now work on issues related to Guantánamo detainees.

“Each of the nine people referenced in the letter filed legal briefs that are available by using something as simple as Google,” Miller told Fox News. “We will not participate in an attempt to drag people’s names through the mud for political purposes.”

Miller said “politics has overtaken facts and reality” in the battle over the lawyers’ identities. (Full statement below)

The current Justice Department employees who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects are:
•Tony West, the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division.
•Jonathan Cedarbaum, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
•Eric Columbus, senior counsel in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General.
•Karl Thompson, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
•Joseph Guerra, Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General.
•Tali Farhadian, an official in the Office of the Attorney General.
•Beth Brinkmann, Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Civil Division.

Two other DOJ lawyers — Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal and National Security Division Attorney Jennifer Daskal – also formerly represented detainees, but their identities had already been known.

In response to the DOJ confirmation, Keep America Safe spokesman Aaron Harison said the organization still wants information on which of the lawyers works on detainee issues within the DOJ.

“The American people have a right to know whether lawyers who voluntarily flocked to Guantanamo to take up the cause of the terrorists are currently working on detainee issues in President Obama’s Justice Department,” Harison said. (Full statement below)

Details about the DOJ lawyers’ involvement in Guantánamo detainee cases are available in the article, which also points out that the Justice Department hired several lawyers who represented Guantánamo detainees during the George W. Bush administration

It looks like her work on behalf of detainees according to this source and others was at Human Rights Watch:

Neal Katyal, the department's principal deputy solicitor general, was once the lawyer for Osama bin Laden's driver. Jennifer Daskal, part of Obama's Detention Policy Task Force, advocated for detainees at Human Rights Watch.

It wasn’t Bush. The Bush admin did not want to release these guys.

2007 : (IN A VICTORY FOR THE CENTER FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS, GITMO DETAINEE ABU SUFIAN BIN QUMU, A FUTURE LEADER OF THE SEPTEMBER 11, 2012 ANSAR AL SHARIAH [aka AQAP] ATTACK ON THE US DIPLOMATIC MISSION IN BENGHAZI , IS TRANSFERRED TO LIBYAN CUSTODY -— See GITMO, CCR, MICHAEL RATNER {See OBAMA, GROUND ZERO MOSQUE}, ZARQAWI) Qumu, a Libyan, was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2007 and transferred into Libyan custody on the condition he be kept in jail. .......[Qumu] was released from [US] custody via an anti-American left wing group headed by an Obama donor. ...Even though the US military recommended he remain in custody, the far left and wildly misnamed Center For Constitutional Rights took on bin Qumu as a client and worked to get him released. They were successful and in 2007 he was returned to Libyan custody. He was released from prison as Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi tried to mend fences with radical islamists. ...-——— Leader Of Libya Attack Linked To Obama Donor, Red State ^ | 9/21/2012 Posted on Monday, September 24, 2012 8:07:37 AM by IbJensen

Oh, yes. Her brother's been involved in all kinds of rabble rousing since 9/11.
He was involved in the politically correct memorial (that got scuttled) proposal that was going to replace the 3 white male firefighters raising the flag in a statue with other ethnic persons (can't recall if they threw a woman figure in there).
But then, most recently before this, he was the leading force behind that effort to get Germany to charge Rumsfeld with war crimes. Remember that? That was Michael Ratner. 65 posted on Friday, June 17, 2005 10:10:49 AM by cyncooper
