Draggingtree Posted August 10, 2015 Share Posted August 10, 2015 Accuracy In Media: Terrorism approaches the courtroom A bungled prosecution gives Benghazi defendant constitutional protection By THE WASHINGTON TIMES - - Wednesday, August 5, 2015 More than Hillary Clinton’s missing emails is bedeviling the legal system in the aftermath of the outrage at Benghazi. A Libyan terrorist, accused in the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound, asked a federal judge Monday in Washington to dismiss the charges and send him home to Libya.Ahmed Abu Khattala says his capture and jailing in the United States, pending a trial, is a “government conspiracy.” He may have a point. President Obama chose to have him kidnapped on Libyan soil and interrogated without legal counsel, then imprisoned in the United States, and granted the constitutional protections meant for Americans. Treating him as both an enemy combatant and a criminal suspect has given Abu Khattala an opening to charge government misbehavior. If the president had not schemed to close the Guantanamo Bay detention camp without regard to U.S. security, Abu Khattala would likely be a guest in the same tropical prison Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
