For John, BLUF: Buried in here is a violation of the First Amendment. The Federal Government, and a State Government, locking someone up as a foreign policy move. It makes one think of John Adams, or Woodrow Wilson or FDR. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Reuters, by the Reuters Staff, 27 June 2018.
Here are the first two paragraphs:
Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the organizer of the deadly Sept. 11, 2012, attack on U.S. diplomatic compounds in Benghazi, Libya, was sentenced on Wednesday to 22 years in prison on terrorism and other charges, the Justice Department said.A friend of mine commented:
Government evidence showed Khatallah led an extremist militia named Ubaydah bin Jarrah, which he directed to carry out the violence in Benghazi, the Justice Department said in a statement.
I could have SWORN that Benghazi was entirely due to an American-made/-released video that insulted Islam.Mr Nakoula Basseley Nakoula could not be reached for comment.
I could have SWORN, under oath, that Benghazi was spontaneous and not preplanned.
I'm pretty sure that USG officials, senior ones, did so, in an Administration famed for having NO scandals.
