One Year Later No Justice For The Benghazi Four

Scandal: As cruise missiles are readied to aid Syria's al-Qaida-linked rebels, the president has yet to keep a promise to avenge the Benghazi dead and bring the killers to justice.

A year has passed since Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Ty Woods were murdered in a Sept. 11 terrorist attack on our diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya.

A month later, Obama said of the attack that "my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice, and I think the American people have seen that's a commitment I'll always keep."

That depends on what he means by "bringing them to justice." It's not like we don't know who they are or we have failed to finger the suspects. As an Associated Press report detailed in May:

"The U.S. has identified five men who might be responsible for the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year, and has enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists, officials say. But there isn't enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers."

So we essentially do nothing while the FBI "continues to investigate." The status of that investigation came up over the weekend as "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace invoked the approaching first anniversary of the attack and asked White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough why the perpetrators hadn't been brought to justice.

Wallace was especially interested in why the U.S. had not brought in Ahmed abu Khattala, who has been charged with the crime but not arrested, despite having given interviews to several news outlets.

Bad enough that Obama's administration is dragging it's feet on this but some that are responsible may very well be "Syrian rebels" that Obama now wants to assist.

No justice for the Bengazi 4, after one year. Indeed not a SINGLE person was even fired...

We’re allies with Al Qaeda in Syria...

Million Muslim March got DC permits, 2 Million Harley riders did not.


How did things get THIS screwed up...?

Maybe Obama can get with O.J. and pool their resources and maybe solve both of their bringing “someone” to justice.

Yep, the two are about equal in the morality department and unfortunately the results would be the same.

We may not be around to see it, but I have faith that justice WILL be done.
