Skip to comments.James Rosen GRILLS State Dept. on why it took so long to capture Benghazi suspect (VIDEO)

Earlier in the State Department briefing, AP reporter Matt Lee pointed out that Ahmed Abu Khattala was not in hiding as Bin Laden was for so many years, and basically asked why it took so long to capture him, especially when he did several news interviews.
Lee got little in response to his question from State Dept. spokeswoman Jen Psaki, other than there were a range of factors that led to Khattala being captured on Sunday and her reasoning that terrorists would gladly meet with news reporters to get their message out but wouldnt likely meet with US Special forces if they scheduled a meeting with him.
Following up on Lees questioning, Fox News reporter James Rosen took the questioning further, asking why US Special Forces couldnt have made an unscheduled meeting with Khattala over the past 2 years to capture him.
Psaki dodged the question, suggesting, once again, that terrorist are likely to meet with news reporters to get their message out and that there was a range of factors that only made Khattalas capture recently.
Pushing his point, Rosen asked why US Special Forces couldnt have pretended to be news reporters to capture Khattala. Psaki quipped that if he were volunteering himself for future endeavors they would take that into account.
Rosen pushed back, telling Psaki she wasnt answering his question and decided to put it in the most simplest of terms, asking why a reporter was able to get within six inches of Khattala but the US Special Forces werent able to do so for more than two years.
Psaki still didnt have a good answer, telling Rosen that its more complicated for US Special Forces to nab a terrorist that it is to call him up for an interview.

It’s not easy to find a patsy.
It’s not an hour melodrama on TV where they capture the bad guy at the end ...
BTW the only reason we hear about this is there are still a few reporters from the legacy press willing to ask tough questions, and other reporters from alternative news sources present at the briefing willing to bring the news to us.
Otherwise these stories would be left on the cutting room floor.
Why did it take so long?
Because for a long time it appeared they might well get away with it ALL, scott-free.
But beyond a threshold point the evidence got pretty thick —apparently it WASN’T quite totally going away.
So the calculus shifted, and now it makes more sense for Hillary for THE REGIME’S PARTNER to turn himself in and
SAY HE WAS MOTIVATED BY THE ***VIDEO***.
Yes, a partner now just as then.
He's going to say this, and get Hillary off the hook, and he'll be PAID.
Later after the kidnapping of who know whom from our side he'll be swapped back.
In your heart you were already thinking this.
They knew right where he was and how to get him when they wanted to. He is their ace up their sleeve.
Chaffetz was referring to CNN's recent interview with Ahmed Abu Khattala, who Libyan and U.S. officials have described as the Benghazi leader of the al Qaeda-affiliated militia group Ansar al-Sharia -- one of many groups that filled the vacuum of authority following the overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi.
State Dept.: Because we weren’t finished coaching him on what to say.
It’s an obama concession to rel;easing the five terrorists who will murder again. And it’s probably killing him. He’ll find some way to keep this pig poop of allahs alive.
Say, uh, Abu..? Hill, here. Yeah, inshallah, indeed..! Back at ya..!
Good times, right..?
Say, Abu, ole' buddy, ole' pal, we, uh have a situation here we really need to iron out, and we have TONS of money, you know?
For the right price and a prisoner swap later, what we need from you is to consider "getting captured" and then confessing that it was THE VIDEO that motivated you and your guys to attack the facility..?
How does $50 million sound for two years, huh?
