    According to much of the media and according to him. He claims he's just a Libyan citizen living at home. The only place "ringleader" is used is in the headlines. No government statement or charges against him describe him as a ringleader of anything.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    That's Right JMac.....and not even all of BO's own people think he is any type of leader other than of what would be an equivalent to an Officer like as in 2nd Louie.

    Do you think they kind of knew since the guy was a Construction Worker?


    The Associated Press reported in May that American officials had identified *five men* who might be responsible for the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in Benghazi that occurred just weeks before President Barack Obama's re-election. The suspects were not named publicly, but the FBI released photos of three of the five suspects, asking the public to provide more information on the men pictured. The images were captured by security cameras at the U.S. diplomatic post during the attack, but it took weeks for the FBI to see and study them. The FBI and other U.S. intelligence agencies identified the men through contacts in Libya and by monitoring their communications. They are thought to be members of Ansar al-Shariah, the Libyan militia group whose fighters were seen near the U.S. diplomatic facility prior to the violence.

    Waiting to prosecute the suspects instead of grabbing them now could add to the political burden the Benghazi case already has placed on Obama and Democrats who want to succeed him in 2016. Since Obama's re-election, Republicans in Congress have condemned the administration's handling of the matter, criticizing the level of embassy security and questioning the talking points provided to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice for her public explanation of the attack. Conservatives have suggested that the White House tried to play down the incident to minimize its effect on the president's campaign.

    In an interview with the Times in October, Khattala said he had arrived at the American compound in Benghazi as gunfire broke out but that he had played no role in the attack. He told the newspaper that he entered the compound at the end of the siege in an attempt to rescue Libyan guards who worked for the Americans and were trapped.

    Khattala accused American leaders of using the Benghazi attack to play "with the emotions of the American people" in an effort to "gather votes for their elections," according to the Times.

    Since the Benghazi attack was triggered by a YouTube video we must have.
    Did you notice where the terrorist mentioned the youtube video?
    Are you giving thanks today that Obama has taken out so many bad guys?
    Yet the flip side of your party whines on about drones.
    There is no pleasing you guys--so Obama needs to go it alone--as with Bergdahl--don't even tell Dems either .

    Yeah and here the called him the Main suspect. But he never was. Nor was he one of the 3 that Petraeus and others knew about.


    Ahmed Abu Khattala



    Native of Benghazi in eastern Libya
    Construction worker by trade
    Spent several years in Gaddafi's notorious Abu Salim prison in Tripoli
    Formed his own small militia during the anti-Gaddafi uprising
    Denies any links to al-Qaeda but has expressed admiration for them
    Also denies any role in the attack on the US embassy in 2012, but eyewitnesses report him being there
    *US state department* says he is a senior leader in Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia
    Has been a vocal and visible presence in eastern Libya since the attack.....snip~

    U.S. captures Benghazi suspect in secret raid - The Washington Post


    Timeline:

    Late December 2012 to early January 2013: Although Ahmed Boukhtala, *a member of an Islamic terrorist group*, is the *main suspect* in the September 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, he continues to live freely in that city. Libyan authorities are reluctant to become entangled in cases like his, which involve terror-group affiliations. In an interview with a Libyan newspaper, Boukhtala neither admits nor denies his role in the September 11 attack. In response to a direct question regarding the incident, he says:

    Let’s first ask about the reason for their presence in Benghazi in this suspicious and secret way. The other thing is: what is the nature of work they were doing in Benghazi? What was the role that the consulate was playing, and who gave it permission to violate Libya’s sovereignty and intervene in Libyan politics?” .....snip~

    Time will show that you are on the wrong side of this scum...

    A three-count criminal complaint filed by the FBI last July and unsealed in federal court in the District on Tuesday charges Abu Khattala with “killing a person in the course of an attack on a federal facility involving use of a firearm” on Sept. 11 and 12, 2012, providing and conspiring to “provide material support to terrorists resulting in a death” and possessing and using a firearm during a crime of violence.

    Conviction on the felony counts could make him eligible for the death penalty or life imprisonment. In a statement, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said the Justice Department could bring more charges against Abu Khattala.

    My post and point was about the name "ring leader" being used.
