Skip to comments.First criminal charges filed in Benghazi attack
Posted on 08/06/2013 1:38:06 PM PDT by Perdogg
Federal prosecutors have filed the first charges in the Benghazi terror attack against Ahmed Khattalah, the leader of a Libyan militia believed to be responsible for the Sept. 11, 2012, consulate attack that killed four Americans.
The charges are under seal, CNN first reported.
(Excerpt) Read more at washingtontimes.com ...
Lemme know when they file charges against those who are REALLY responsible. Hussein, Rodham, Jarrett etc.
Not an American official, methinks this isn’t going anywhere.
Criminal what? If they really want to fight this WAR as a police thing, then pull all our troops out and send in lawyers. It’s a win win.
Let me guess.... George Zimmerman?
“First” person to be charged? Tell that to Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who I believe is only NOW just out of prison for precipitating this entire “thing”.
Phony Charges for a phony scandal?
That will scare a terrorist living in Benghazi, Libya... oh yeah he’s shaking.
Are we gonna read him his Miranda rights too?
A failure to act when there was a duty to do so, resulting in the deaths of the plaintiffs’ relatives. Criminal negligence. Wrongful death.
But it’s the same old problem: this administration isn’t responsible for anything, but they are quick to take credit for nothing.
Reading the title I was thinking more along the likes of Valerie Jarrett.
THIS is going to be a big showy trial, he will be convicted and executed, then as far as the media and white hut are concerned, Benghazi is totally OVER.
Unless Hillary and Obama are named as co-conspirators this is just more distraction.
If that's the case than this isn't going anywhere: Benghazi stops here.
If we had just charged Tojo and Hitler in a US criminal court in 1941 we could have avoided WW 2... right?
“Stupid beyond hope” that should have been his campaign slogan in 2008.
The charges should be explosives, sent to blow up the ttckers, not namby-pamby, Judge Judy, criminal justice charges.
Just in time for his guest appearance on Leno.
Interesting timing-—AS PER USUAL—considering the breaking news about Valerie Jarrett (Iranian born TRUE commander-in-chief) allegedly being the one to give the “stand-down” order in the Benghazi attack on our fine men.
Actually, this and the shutting down of the embassies over the weekend are a weak attempt to deflect criticism of not handling the terrorism threat sufficiently.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
The real criminals held back US forces from defending them. This is crap.
How convenient. Just in time for his appearance on “Leno” tonight. Spike the ball, anyone?
“Phony Charges for a phony scandal?”
Give hussein a break—he’s on leno tonight and couldn’t go empty handed.
It is time to charge the people who told them to attack and then ordered our troops to stand down.
All for show.
There does not have to be a stand down order.
All that has to happen is for Obama to not personally authorize the cross border action - and there is no rescue, from anywhere outside the country. (Sigonella or Croatia)
The in-country assets differ slightly, someone told the forces in Tripoli to not go to Benghazi and instead guard Tripoli. This also was technically not a stand down order, although it achieved the same result.
There are a FEW balls I would like to spike...ohaha’s included.
Discovery should be interesting !
Just presenting evidence that’s not been contaminated or comparing those depositions they’ve take. /s
Libyan Leader: Embassy Attack Unrelated to Islam Video 9/26/2012
Hicks said U.S. officials knew better by then and that the remarks angered the Libyan president, who had gone on record calling it a terrorist attack. That discord prevented the FBI from reaching Benghazi for several days, Hicks said, because the Libyan government was not able to guarantee their safety.
Libyan President Mohamed Yusuf al-Magariaf was "insulted in front of his own people," Hicks said. "His credibility was reduced. His ability to lead his country was damaged."
Not to mention...
Breaking, Cover-Up?: Libyan President Indicates U.S. Knew Date And Time Of Embassy Attack In Advance September 16, 2012
and he cites intercepted communications to prove it. Keep in mind also that if this is true, then Obamas main surrogate for the matter on the Sunday talk shows, UN Ambassador Susan Rice (who said on these shows that the whole thing was NOT a pre-planned Al Qaeda operation but merely a movie protest spun out of control), spent the entire day today either lying through her teeth as it is simply impossible to believe that she went on these shows with no approval of her talking points by the White House, or the White House, hoping they could ultimately hide the truth from everybody, including her, lied to her and said they had no evidence indicating Al Qaeda when in fact they had these intercepted communications
The EX SEALs at the ANNEX were ordered to stand down twice. They were contractors so that stand down did not apply to the military per se.
This is where a lot of the comfusion is.
I keep trying to post about this and nothing comes out that I really want made public.
...better I just go away for a while and cool off.
When did FDR file criminal charges against Isoruku Yamamoto over that Pearl Harbor unpleasantness?
I know. It happens to me all the time. You can’t say what you mean or what you KNOW.
I believe Obama’s answer to Pearl Harbor would have been a federal indictment. .

#FF @evanperez who broke news of the sealed complaint v Libyan militia leader Ahmed Khattalah for the Benghazi attack on @TheLeadCNN today.
July 15, 2013

Prior to the joining the Wall Street Journal in 1998, Evan worked as a Miami reporter for the Associated Press. Evan starts on July 28th.
A ploy to hide the evidence of what went down.
“This is an active investigation and prosecution.”
Rapper has access to the diaries and now Perez does too
The charges are under seal.
George Bush, Darrell Issa and Trey Gowdy.
Obama and his goons are the ones I want to see indicted first and foremost!
Yes, Odingo knows the spontaneous-out-of-control-protests-in-response-to-a-video story was phony, and are hereby admitting that fact. Only the regime’s words and actions have a patina of phoniness throughout.
The first charges filed wer against a man who made a video that no one saw.
Obama was stoned on cocaine while Benghazi burned.
So looks like we are back to treating terrorism like a law enforcement matter..except we have no power to bring the guy in or prosecute him....lol
Am I missing something? They don’t even have him in custody do they?
