Former Gitmo Detainee Sufian bin Qumu Was On The Ground In Benghazi During Terror Attack that Killed 4 Americans
Could some one please explain to me why we are capturing terrorists, holding them at GITMO and then letting them go?
The Obama administration has held no one, zero, nada, nil, nessuno, cero, ninguno, nikdo, semmi, butkis responsible for the murders of four Americans, including Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi following the terror attacks that Obama’s minions initially called a reaction to a video. But then again, Obama typically grandstands in front of the camera and promises to hold people responsible and never does. Oh, oops, this was Obama’s faux promise to hold those responsible in Benghazi.To make matters worse, if possible, now we learn that ex-GITMO detainee, Sufian bin Qumu, with Al Qaeda ties was in Benghazi the night of the September 11, 2012 terror attack.
Sufian bin Qumu
From FOX News:
A former Guantanamo Bay detainee with Al Qaeda ties was in Benghazi the night of the Sept. 11 attack, according to a source on the ground in Libya.
The source told Fox News that ex-detainee Sufian bin Qumu, who is suspected of running camps in eastern Libya where some of the assailants trained, is also a “respected member” of Ansar al-Sharia — one of the Islamist groups identified in State Department email traffic two hours after the attack.
Two sources familiar with the investigation, when asked about bin Qumu’s whereabouts the night of the attack, did not dispute the claim he was in Benghazi.
While it is not clear whether bin Qumu was directing the assault, his security file from Guantanamo may be revealing. Having already trained in Usama bin Laden’s camps, in 1998 bin Qumu joined the Taliban in Pakistan and “communicated with likely extremist elements via radio during this period indicating a position of leadership,” the file shows.
Fox News’ ongoing reporting on the attack has shown that at least four key Benghazi suspects have ties to the Al Qaeda senior leadership in Pakistan. They include bin Qumu and Muhammad Jamal, whose network is also suspected of training jihadists for the attack. Jamal was held, and later released by, Egyptian authorities. Earlier this month, the State Department’s terrorist designation for Jamal and his network cites letters he exchanged with Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, where Jamal asked for money and explained the scope of his training camps, which included Libya and the Sinai.
Fox News was first to report that two other suspects have ties to the Al Qaeda senior leadership — one believed to be a former courier and the other, a bodyguard for the network. Faraj al Chalabi, identified to Fox News as the bodyguard, was also in Afghanistan with bin Laden until the U.S. invasion in October 2001. (Read full story and watch video HERE)
I couldn’t agree with Weasel Zippers any more … “Why bother capturing them in the first place if we’re going to cut them loose?”
