    He posted up my same link yet doesn't give you the name of one of the 3 the FBI showed Photos of. The one guy was Killed in Egypt. The other Fled to Tunisia. The 3rd was here.



    Believed to be in his 40s, Khattala was imprisoned for many years by the Gaddafi regime for his Islamic views.

    The FBI believes other groups were also involved in the Benghazi attacks and is pursuing criminal charges against several individuals, including Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of Ansar al-Sharia in the Libyan city of Darnah. Qumu has also been designated a terrorist by the State Department, as has his group.

    In 2007, Qumu was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and sent to Libya, where he was detained. Gaddafi’s government released him in 2008....snip~

    Big difference.
    I'm glad you find Dead Americans funny under Bush. Shows your un-American attitude and faux outrage for the deaths of Americans. You just want to politicize it since it's under Obama. Some on the right are just pathetic un-American garbage.

    Re: U.S. Captures Benghazi Suspect in Secret Raid.....

    Here ya go once again.....the Leader of Ansar Al Sharia in ALL of Libya.




    Mohammad al-Zahawi, head of Ansar al-Sharia

    Note the name is almost identical to the Z Man of AQ.


    The group



    Ansar al-Sharia is an Islamist militia calling for the implementation of strict Sharia law across Libya. The group, whose name means "Partisans of Islamic law" in Arabic, emerged following the February 2011 anti-Gaddafi uprising. It is made up of former rebels from several militias based in eastern Libya, notably the Abu Obayda bin al-Jarah Brigade, the Malik Brigade and the 17 February Brigade.

    The group was officially formed in June 2012 when it issued the "Ansar al-Sharia First Meeting", a communique announcing its inauguration. The number of rebels that fight for the group remains unknown. The group operates mainly in Benghazi and denies having any presence elsewhere in Libya.

    The group's base in Benghazi's Quwarshah district was reportedly bombarded with surface-to-surface missiles by Gen Haftar's forces.....snip~

    The key is justified. Much of what is throw out against him is supposition, exaggeration, unsupported hate.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Little is known about Mr al-Zawahi. He is from eastern Libya and was jailed in Tripoli's Abu Salim prison for standing up to Gaddafi.

    They were not known [in] Libya before the revolution. We had the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, we had the Muslim Brotherhood, we had Salafis but this group, we did not hear about until recently, until after the revolution started," Libyan diplomat Ahmad Jibril has told the BBC.

    In October 2012, the group became known as Ansar al-Sharia in Libya (ASL), most likely to differentiate itself from Tunisia's Ansar al-Sharia group. From October 2012 onwards, Ansar al-Sharia had confrontations with a number of Libyan groups, many of which joined the Libyan army in Benghazi. Following these confrontations, the group reduced its military presence in the city but kept close links to the prominent Islamist 17 February Brigade group.

    The group denies any links to al-Qaeda or other militant groups outside Libya, although the Tunisian security officials pointed to operational, financial and logistical links between Ansar al-Sharia in Libya and Ansar al-Sharia in Tunisia (AST), with the latter receiving weapons from its Libyan counterpart.....snip~ <<<<< Oh Lookie, Heres a Clue!!!!!

    Yes.....the same one and only 17th Feb. Brigade. The same group that Someone working in the US State Dept Hired for US Security. Someones name.....that will eventually come out into the light.

    According to the right wing media. And what do you EXPECT a ringleader to say?

    You guys really, really love the alternate reality you've built. We get it.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I doubt the NY Times is Right Wing Media. Or the BBC.....Or the Guardian. Care to try again?

    But then there is just reality and the facts. Despite those that watch a lot of Hogan's Heroes.


    Timeline:

    September 22, 2012: Fawzi Bukatef, leader of the February 17 Martyrs Brigades, says that the Obama administration took no action during the attacks on the mission in Benghazi, and that “We [the Brigade] had to coordinate everything.” Bukatef's account is entirely consistent with Libyan Interior Minister Wanis al-Sharif's earlier assertion that Libyan security forces had essentially handed the U.S. mission personnel over to the attackers.....snip~

    Oh, yes.

    In MMCspeak, when the NYT uses the word 'leader', it is not the same as 'ringleader', because the depth of MMCs knowledge of English clearly stated these are different words and have additional, and different consonants, plus a totally different vowel.

    Seems you don't remember much about recent history. Obama was pushing to stay but instead he listened to the generals on the ground who advised him otherwise.
