Obama gave this bloodthirsty Libyan jihad murderer the full protection of a US citizen. Ahmed Abu Khatallah was mirandized and has since clamped down and shut up, which was Obama’s objective all along. In the continuing cover-up of the Benghazi jihad murderers and Obama’s feckless and reckless abandonment of our people, Obama’s main objective is to cover up what really happened that night on his watch.
This Libyan devout jihadi was read his Miranda rights — which give him the right to remain silent to avoid self-incrimination, a U.S. official told CNN.
“I have serious concerns that conducting a rushed interrogation on board a ship and then turning Abu Khatallah over to our civilian courts risks losing critical intelligence that could lead us to other terrorists or prevent future attacks,” Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-New Hampshire, said in a statement Saturday.
“Reporter’s Notebook: At the Benghazi suspect’s hearing,” By Catherine Herridge, July 02, 2014, FoxNews.com
A few minutes after 11am, Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khatallah entered a federal court in Washington, D.C. unshackled and wearing a green jumpsuit with one word – prisoner – in white block letters on the back.
The government court filings seemed to have something for both sides in the detention debate.
They stated that Khatallah’s post-capture statements are part of the case against him, but also revealed that after the 2012 Benghazi attack, the 43- year-old suspect continued to “make efforts to target American personnel and property.”
Critics have complained the Obama administration made the criminal case against him the priority and that Khatallah was free for 21 months as the evidence was gathered.
Khatallah had one personal request – a Koran, and Halal foods, which Muslims are allowed to eat under Islamic Shariah law. The judge said those issues were not for the court, but for the U.S. Marshals to handle.
