Why the Rush? U.S. Files Charges Against Benghazi Attack Suspects

Posted by on Aug 06, 2013 at 6:26 pm

I question the timing.

The Justice Department has filed criminal charges against several suspects in the Benghazi terror attack, a U.S. official tells Fox News.

The U.S. official confirmed that sealed charges were filed against suspects in connection with the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. It’s unclear whether they are the same individuals whose images the FBI released to the public in May.

One of the individuals charged is Libyan militia leader Ahmed Khattalah.

Four Americans, including then-Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed in the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

The administration was staying mum on the charges. Asked about the reports, a Justice Department official said only that their investigation is “ongoing.”

“It has been, and remains, a top priority. We have no further comment at this time,” the official said.

Sealed charges against invisible men? Phony scandal as a top priority? Sure. Meanwhile, the obnoxious Obama again repeated the brazen “phony scandals” canard today to explain away all his failures. So, do we have CNN to thank for this?
Almost forgot — CNN’s airing a one-hour special on Benghazi this very evening. And here we are, mid-afternoon, with an important late-breaking update to make it look like the feds are on the case. See what happens when non-Fox networks turn up the heat on Hopenchange?

    It’s wise to question the timing, Jammie.

    It’s wiser to ask why we’re seeing this leak at all. It’s a leak of a sealed indictment against a terrorist at large, someone Obamee has been ignoring for 11 months now. Why draw attention to that?

    It’s wiser still to ask the larger question about why the Obamee clowns are so desperate to resolve Benghazi that they are in 100% panic mode right now. It’s visible panic to the point that one would be forgiven for expecting an inevitable attack, and that damage control was already the prevailing modality.

    The truly wise person instead asks “Since the Democrat party cannot survive the truth about what the CIA was really doing in Benghazi, to what lengths will Obamee go to in order to protect Hillary and win in 2016?”

    We’re going to know very shortly.
