Posted on 06/17/2014 3:54:20 PM PDT by ButThreeLeftsDo
Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the captured suspect considered to be a key figure in the Benghazi, Libya, attack, will not be sent to Guantanamo, White House officials insisted today.
Abu Khatallah is currently in U.S. custody in a secure location outside the United States, and en route to the United States to face the charges against him, National Security Council spokesperson Caitlin Hayden said in a statement today.
Some have suggested that he should go to [Guantanamo Bay]. Let me rule that out from the start. The Administrations policy is clear on this issue: we have not added a single person to the GTMO population since President Obama took office, and we have had substantial success delivering swift justice to terrorists through our federal court system, Hayden added.

He’ll be buried at sea with Osama - unless he’s a shill who’s in on the kabuki.
Probably going to keep him in the west wing where they can have better access to rehearse his talking points to undermine Trey Goudy and his commission.
“... will not be sent to Guantanamo, ... “
I am sure he’s greatly disappointed. Gitmo is the next best thing to the country club.
He’ll get the McDougal treatment.............Then he’ll be placed where Lois Lerners emails reside.
This isn’t the former Gitmo detainee who reportedly took part in the Benghazi attack.
Probably invite him to the WH - give him the Lincoln bedroom. Of course he’ll be made to take off his shoes. There are limits you know.
Just WHEN was he captured???? This is ALL a big fat lie!!
I smell a Rat a plant a scam.
I hear his children are “dreamers”, the whole lot of them.
Delivering swift justice through our judicial process? What world does this NSC media slut live in?
Obama’s National Security Council is a joke. They are to “national security” as Joseph Goebbels was to public relations.
Not the NSC I knew back during the Nam days. Those guys were pro-America and put their lives on the line many times.
We are being lied to by the Obama regime to the point that I trust nothing their media mealy mouthpieces say. PERIOD!
I think not.
They'll try this guy in a federal court with a case such that a law school dropout could get him off and free.
And he knows.
That's what Obama really wants; "justice" for the oppressed.
Well, the IRS may need a new director soon. Think of how many problems that would solve!
At the rate that this administration has to keep changing the narrative each and every day, I expect that in another week or two it will be disclosed that they have found LL’s emails. It will be disclosed that they somehow slipped into Joe Biden’s underwear and have been in Brazil for the World Cup...
Answer: "I cannot comment on that due to the pending trial of Ahmed Abu Khatallah." THAT'S why Obama did this, to give anyone Trey Gowdy summons to testify an out NOT to testify, so as to avoid implicating Obama or Hillary.
Yes, if he says all the right things he will be released to live in the US will full welfare benefits.
Why would he send the guy to GitMo?
Why not just release the guy now and get it over with.
He can trade him for three very important camels and be done with it.
Why did this move now? 2 reasons:
1. Trey Gowdy plans to publicly question witnesses as to WHY Chris Stevens was in Benghazi? Obama and Hillary do NOT want that rock turned over publicly.
2. The revelation last week that the US had intercepted telephone calls of the terrorists using cell phones.
a. They do NOT want to reveal how we captured voice calls in real-time in Libya.
b. More importantly, we now know that the White House knew before the attack ended that it was a planned terrorists attack. Susan Rices testimony is now DEMONSTRABLY a planned lie. Which leads you back to point #1.
Why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi? What was the CIA doing?
Id say the odds are better than 50/50 that the Obama Administration helped arm ISIS. We are living in a bizarre world. Had the media even gave a 1/4 second of thought that George Bush had done what Obama has done, the media would have been leading the demonstrations at the gates of the White House for Bushs immediate arrest and impeachment.
Gowdy must be closing in...
L O L
Hussein Obama and Eric Holder will make sure he has all the recommended lawyers that Holder can find...do you trust this current Administration? I sure as Hell don’t
Hussein O. is a professional LIAR...He should have been already held under impeachment. He is destroying our Nation, one day at a time..
Send him to Point Barrow, Alaska.
Never understood liberals’ problems with gitmo. Might just be a case of Not Invented Here. If liberals had proposed it they would love it. But they have to oppose it because it is associated with Bush.
Maybe this guy will be the terrorist-to-be-named-later that will finalize the Bergdahl trade.
Hussein 0bama is probably having The Lincoln Bedroom made up for his muzzie bro.
KSM II—he’ll go to Manhattan for the show trial.
I think you’ve pretty much nailed it, Bryan.
If he’s guilty, he should be tried, convicted, and executed sooner rather than later.
Yes, he should.
But no, he won’t.
