The Obama administration for the first time on Friday identified two militant groups in Libya, including one led by a former Guantanamo Bay detainee, as being allegedly involved in the attack in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
The department designated the two branches of the Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, those in the cities of Derna and Benghazi, and a third branch in Tunisia as foreign terrorist organizations.
It also named Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of the Derna branch, and Ahmed Abu Khattala, a senior leader of the Benghazi branch, as specially designated global terrorists.
The Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi is still a political issue in Washington. Republicans in Congress criticized the Obama administration's handling of the attack and the level of security at the diplomatic outpost.
Not only that, but one of the guys they've been torturing in Guantanamo since like forever, has been confirmed to be the LEADER of one of those 2 groups responsible for the Benghazi attack which killed 4 prominent Americans (ummm, Obama wasn't among them).
What are the odds?! Sure gives Guantanamo a good reputation, for stopping terror in tracks (or years after the fact).
