While the White House continues to stumble over itself concerning their "official story" about the Benghazi attack and the killing of the ambassador there, a detail is emerging that is bound to haunt the administration and is catching on like wildfire across the internet.
It seems the man that led the attack is believed to have formerly been held at Guantanamo Bay, yet was released from custody via an anti-American group headed by an Obama donor. The alleged leader of the attack is Abu Sufian bin Qumu.
According to his Guantanamo file, Qumu was captured in Pakistan in 2002. He was identified by the Libyan government, the same government that we aided al Qaeda in overthrowing last year. He was also allegedly linked directly to the men involved with the 9/11 attacks according to the file.
Sufyan Ben Qumu is thought to have been involved and even may have led the attack, Fox News' intelligence sources said. Qumu, a Libyan, was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2007 and transferred into Libyan custody on the condition he be kept in jail. He was released by the Qaddafi regime as part of its reconciliation effort with Islamists in 2008.
However, though he was released, the military protested his release and recommended that he remain in custody. Red State reports,
Even though the US military recommended he remain in custody, the far left and wildly misnamed Center For Constitutional Rights took on bin Qumu as a client and worked to get him released. They were successful and in 2007 he was returned to Libyan custody. He was released from prison as Libyan president Muammar Gaddafi tried to mend fences with radical islamists.
When next we hear of Mr. bin Qumu it is in a press release issued by the CCR protesting that the New York Times had identified their man as a recidivist when he was in fact as innocent as a newborn babe and had even helped overthrow the Gaddafi regime.
For example, the Times lists five Russian men as being recidivists when not even the DOD continues to include them since they were tortured on their return to Russia (as documented by Human Rights Watch). A Center for Constitutional Rights client, Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda bin Qumu, is also listed as a recidivist, when in fact he was jailed on his return to Libya and is now allegedly fighting with the U.S.-supported rebels…
Now the person that headed up the CCR when Qumu was released was none other than Michael Ratner, who not only endorsed Barack Obama in 2008, but also contributed $2,300 to his campaign as well.
Mr Ratner has aided several detainees at Guantanamo Bay, according to the Huffington Post and several have been freed. While we cannot use the fallacy of guilt by association, it is telling the kinds of people that Barack Obama associates with and those that not only endorse his campaign, but contribute money towards it.
