    But please note that on 9-11-01 the twin towers were hit and our President (George Walker Bush--January 20, 2001 – January 20, 2009) said that "he can run but he can't hide". Eight years that gentleman held that office, and he actually had Osama bin Laden cornered at Tora Bora and he let people that we were fighting earlier to go in and get him. Well needless to say we know how that worked out.

    Then Barack enters on 1-20-09 and bin Laden is killed on 5-2-11 (2 years 4 months.). I must say that Barack got better at this by 5 months.

    Heya BoBN.....except for one fact. He is not the leader, nor the one that set up the attack.

    U.S. Special Operations forces captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi in a secret raid in Libya over the weekend, the first time one of the accused perpetrators of the 2012 assault has been apprehended, according to U.S. officials.

    The officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala was captured Sunday near Benghazi by American troops, working alongside the FBI, following months of planning, and was now in U.S. custody “in a secure location outside Libya.” The officials said there were no casualties in the operation, and that all U.S. personnel involved have safely left Libya. The Washington Post learned about the capture Monday but agreed to a request from the White House to delay publication of a story because of security concerns.

    Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity about the still-secret operation, would not say where Khattala was being held. They said he was “en route” to the United States, but would not say when he was expected to arrive.....snip~

    This sounds like the initial negotiations for one of those trades that involves "a player to be named later".

    Yeah an underling. Like an Officer. That's despite his starting his own group. Which is more than likely mostly his family members.

    Because a small fry Ansar Al Sharia guy is just like Bin Laden, with all the protections, resources and people to hide him. If you're going to point out a false comparison at least pick a good one and not this nonsense. Don't forget, the NYT knew where these guys were for weeks after the attack - funny how Obama didn't get that information from the news like everyone else did or we could have gotten a few more right away.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d 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.

    Journalists Haven't Had Trouble Finding Benghazi Suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala
    Posted: 12/06/2013 9:59 am <<<<< !


    The Washington Post reported Friday that the U.S. efforts to capture suspects in the Sept. 2012 Benghazi attack, including alleged ringleader Ahmed Abu Khattala, have stalled.U.S. forces planned to capture Khattala in October, but dropped the mission following the fallout from a separate raid in Tripoli. An official told The Post that Khattala's "free as a bird." Khattala's seemed that way for some time -- at least through media reports. While the U.S. government has so far been unable to catch Khattala, journalists haven't had trouble locating him since shortly after the attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Last year, I wrote how both the New York Times and Reuters sat down with Khattala around the time he was first considered a suspect. In those reports -- and in more recent ones -- journalists have noted the disconnect between his status as a wanted man and casually meeting in public.

    On Oct. 18, 2012, New York Times reporter David Kirkpatrick "spent two leisurely hours" with Khattala "at a crowded luxury hotel, sipping a strawberry frappe on a patio and scoffing at the threats coming from the American and Libyan governments." Reuters caught up with Khattala the same day and similarly reported that he didn't appear overly concerned. "Sitting with a friend in the restaurant of a Benghazi hotel, the 41-year-old, sporting a red felt hat and a full salt-and-pepper beard, laughed gently," wrote Hadeel Al Shalchi and Ghaith Shennib.

    And that's not the last time Khattala popped up in the western media. In August, CNN's Arwa Damon spent two hours with him at a well-known hotel coffee shop in Benghazi. When asked on-air about locating Khattala, Damon said he's "not a man who is in hiding." Khattala recently surfaced again in the western media, meeting with a Times of London reporter in late October.....snip~
