You may have heard that a key figure, perhaps THE key figure, of the 2012 Benghazi attack on a CIA outpost masquerading as a U.S. consulate has been captured by American forces and is currently being questioned on a ship bound for the continental U.S........where the "weak" American president said he would be tried in a federal U.S. court.
The captured Libyan's name is Ahmed Abu Khatallah......
"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.
Kirkpatrick reported back in December of last year how Benghazi witnesses had told him that the motivation for the Benghazi attack 9-11-2012 was the anti-Muslim video, "Innocence of Muslims."
So now the fun can really begin. Exiting the clown car first is the New Confederacy's Great White Hope, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX)....
"Khatallah is a foreign terrorist, captured by our special forces overseas for his violent attack on a U.S. facility. He belongs in Guantanamo and in the military justice system, not in the U.S. civilian court system with the constitutional protections afforded U.S. citizens."
Followed by Marco the Clown (R-FLA)....
"The Obama administration should immediately transfer him to the military detention center at Guantanamo Bay for detention and interrogation,"
Huckleberry Clown (R-SC).....“If they bring him to the U.S., they will Mirandize this guy, and it will be the biggest mistake for the ages to read this guy his Miranda rights,” Lindsey Graham said.
And finally, the driver of the Clown Car, Grampy Clown (R-AZ)....“It’s totally inappropriate to keep him anyplace else (but Gitmo),” McCain said
.All of those Clown quotes were entirely predictable. It was Commander-in Chief Obama who approved the order to capture Khattala.....therefore, something had to have been done wrong. Why? Because Obama is just such an "incompetent" foreign policy president. Obama, you know, "dithers", instead of "leading".....too busy trying to "replenish the enemy" by trading 5 Bin Ladens for one U.S soldier.
You may not know this, but since 9-11-2001, the U.S. has prosecuted over 500 "terrorists" in U.S. federal courts. Further, Khattala has no ties to al-Qaeda. So, I'm thinking that the GOP Clown-call to send Khattala to Gitmo is motivated by other reasons than "detention and interrogation."
From the birth of the radical right's political conspiracy theory over what happened in Benghazi, the one "talking point" the anti-Obama-ites get the most enraged over hearing is that the motivation of the Benghazi attackers who killed 4 Americans was an anti-Muslim video. The tinfoilers just hate hearing that.....and whenever it is raised, they instantly become visibly agitated and unusually angry.
The worst blow to the Conspiracy Clowns would be any court testimony or sworn depositions from Khattala vindicating Obama administration "talking points" in the immediate aftermath of the Benghazi attack. The Clowns have built their entire conspiracy on the Foxian keystone which thoroughly rejects all anti-Muslim video motivation factors by the attackers.
The four Senator Clowns who demand that Khattala be sent to Gitmo may often resemble circus clowns in their over-the-top remarks....but those Clowns are not stupid. They realize that should Khattala officially offer up the anti-Muslin video as cause for the attack.....the entire right wing conspiracy which has been continually fueled these past two years by denying the video played any role in the tragedy....will collapse in upon itself. Great humiliation and embarrassment will follow.
However, should Khattala be sent to Gitmo as a "detainee".....Americans will never find out that the Great Clown Conspiracy is but a Giant Rightwing Clown Hoax....and has been from it's inception.
Could be mistaken, of course, but I think that's why 4 representatives of the Clown Contingency called immediately for Khattala to be sent to Guantanamo. To pre-emptively stop the Conspiracy from the real possibility of being exposed.
Finally, what Republicans cannot do, will not do, and, apparently, do not have the capacity to do.....is admit mistakes.....and I mean, ever. So, there is no doubt in my mind that the only way the Clown Conspirators can hope to save face here...is to....wait....wait....start another conspiracy.....
Rightwing Conspiracist and former Florida GOP congressman, Allen West, yesterday......Squirrel! #Benghazi suspect conveniently captured to deflect attention from all the other nightmares.
“We’ve known about this fella for almost two years — he was the one who famously sat outside in a hotel sipping on a drink, giving an interview to Time magazine,” he continued. “We’ve known his whereabouts — so why now?”
After endlessly calling for the "weak" and "incompetent" Obama to bring those Benghazi attackers to justice....Obama, having done so with Khattala's capture, is met with the out-effing-rageous question...."Why now?"
Never admit error......just spin out a new conspiracy. Like I mentioned.....Clowns.
