    NYT: Captured Suspect Said Benghazi Attack Was Revenge For Anti-Islam Video

    OMG, What are the Republican deniers and Rep. Trey Gowdy going to do now? LMMFAO


    NYT: Captured Suspect Said Benghazi Attack Was Revenge For Anti-Islam Video

    Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspect captured by U.S. special forces on Tuesday for his role in the 2012 Benghazi attack, reportedly said he was motivated in part by the anti-Islam online video made in America, according to the New York Times.

    "What he did in the period just before the attack has remained unclear. But Mr. Abu Khattala told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video," Times reporter David Kirkpatrick wrote in a story on Khattala on Tuesday.

    Immediately following the attack, Khattala declined to say whether the video had anything to do with his role in the Benghazi attack, according to the Times.

    The New York Times reported in December that the attack was fueled in part by the anti-Islam video, but did not link Khattala to the video in that investigation.

    The scandal surrounding the Obama administration's response to Benghazi was centered on whether or not the attack was related to protests surrounding the video.

    LOL. It's all Obamas fault for capturing him.
    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 never really got why any of the alleged motivations were mutually exclusive.

    Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspect captured by U.S. special forces on Tuesday ...

    ... reportedly said he was motivated in part by ...

    [...]

    Immediately following the attack, Khattala declined to say whether the video had anything to do with his role in the Benghazi attack, according to the Times.
    [...]
    A suspect just captured, just happens to confirm what the admin said even though that bs has already been proven wrong.
    And even though he didn't say so before when he could have, and says it is only in part the reason.

    Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeee eeee!

    Double doh!


    There is some apparent grasping going on here.


    And as the times article that the above info is based on;
    Afterward, he offered contradictory denials of his role, sometimes trying to say that he did not do it but strongly approved. He appeared to enjoy his notoriety.

    He is pretty much a liar.

    It was predicted early this morning that this would be his defense. More like what Eric Holder is offering him.

    But there were a few reporters who did interview Ahmed Abu Khatallah back in 2012 and that wasn't what he said back then.

    Mr. Abu Khattala, 41, wearing a red fez and sandals, added his own spin. Contradicting the accounts of many witnesses and the most recent account of the Obama administration, he contended that the attack had grown out of a peaceful protest against a video made in the United States that mocked the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.
