Justice for No One

The Associated Press is reporting that Ali Harzi, a 26 year old Tunisian linked to the assassination attack in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, has been released "due to lack of evidence."   After the attacks Obama said, "My biggest priority is bringing those folks (the terrorists) to justice and I think the American people have seen that's a commitment I'll always keep." 

In 2005, Ali Harzi and a brother were sentenced to 30 months in prison.  Another brother fought against U.S. led coalition forces in Iraq.  Their father acknowledged in an interview that he had encouraged his sons to take up "jihad in the cause of God."

Despite video showing faces of the attackers, "most suspects remained free" and witnesses have yet to be questioned, according to the AP. 

In a separate report, Reuters noted the same lack of progress in the investigation, citing "no real desire to dig too deep (by Libyan officials) for fear of setting off reprisals" from the Islamic militias.  Even the commander overseeing the security reaction on the night of the attacks had yet to even be questioned as of late last month.   FBI agents sent to Benghazi in October to investigate retreated to Tripoli "because of security concerns" according to Reuters, and simply "put out a poster asking for information."

Ahmed Abu Khattala, about whom "witnesses have said they saw him directing other fighters" during the Benghazi attack reportedly is walking the streets with impunity.  Abu Khattala is said to be the leader of a wing of Ansar al-Sharia, the al-Qaeda linked group said to be responsible for the 9/11/2012 assault. 

But, if he's one of the most wanted men in the world right now, Abu Khattala doesn't seem all that concerned. He sat down with the New York Times and "spent two leisurely hours on Thursday evening at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments."

Abu Khattala told the NYT that, "no authority has even questioned him about the attack…and he has no plans to go into hiding." 

What we have "seen" Mr. President is a feckless foreign policy, no bringing of terrorists to justice, a weakening of American power and influence, resulting in a far more dangerous world.

This thug, too, seems to be unchargable "due to lack of evidence", but based on circumstantial evidence, his guilt reeks...

Bingo! It’s too bad we don’t have hard evidence that our people were murdered by weapons supplied by the muslim in chief.

I have complete faith. Obama should solve this mystery shortly after OJ Simpson finds his wife's killer.

They have movies of the rape and murder, so
Obama clearly WANTED the real terrorist to go free.

After all, he has the (decoy) maker of the
unseen video in prison.
