Perfect Timing

It's not surprising that a wing nut such as myself would question the timing of anything the Decider Guy might do on terrorism.  But it is a little surprising that the State Dept press secretary was peppered with timing questions right off the bat in her briefing today, and not only by Fox.  One does have to wonder why it took so long seeing as how the indictment against Khattala was sealed almost a year ago amidst rumors he was very easy to find around the Benghazi cafe scene.  Surely it had nothing to do with Hillary's scheduled interview with Fox News tonight.

Aside from the political skepticism this is great.  If the picture released with today's stories was taken after the snatch he looks scared poopless, which is good based on the poop he sold the Times about it being our fault and such.  So it looks like one down about 23 to go.  Don't miss the fact that we're seeing yet another rendition by Obama with a terror suspect whisked away to an unknown location.  Where have we heard that complaint before?   But take heart ideologically consistent liberals, Holder is charging him with gun crimes, too.

Meanwhile you may be asking, what does the Benghazi attack have to do with Iraq?   The answer is maybe nothing, but nobody seems to be asking about this report from CNN issued shortly after the 9/11/12 attack:
U.S. intelligence believes that assailants connected to al Qaeda in Iraq were among the core group that attacked the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, a U.S. government official told CNN. That would represent the second al Qaeda affiliate associated with the deadly September 11 attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
Previously, intelligence officials said there were signs of connections to al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, the North African wing of the terror group. The revelation that members of al Qaeda in Iraq are suspected of involvement in the Libya attack comes at a time when there is a growing number of fighters from that group also taking part in the Syrian civil war.
For those scoring at home, "al Qaeda in Iraq" is now called either ISIL or ISIS--the same thugs now beheading their way to Baghdad.  Maybe chairman Gowdy can unlock this mystery connection.  And maybe somebody, anybody, can explain why the president is heralding the resolve and determination of the United States in the pursuit and capture of a possible terrorist in Libya two weeks after releasing five known terrorists already in lock up while downplaying their threat?

Jane Harmon on Fox and others have mentioned the connection between Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and his Al-Qaeda thugs to the current terrorists. (Remember a missile took out Zarqawi in his tent with a wife or two, some silky nighties, one animal print...

Get the head of a group, the body lives on, grows, multiplies, somebody else steps up as head.

I'm with you, the timing is very suspicious. The date of "arrest" wa not given I don't think, just the date of "charging" him with certain crimes. So not sure exactly when he was captured, but the timing of the announcement yesterday was questionable.

Hillary has the Benghazi hearings coming up, she also had the interview with Bret Baer and Gretta on Fox news last night. Which I watched and the answer to every question was "... as I wrote in my book, as I said in my book".

That's the book that nobody is buying, only 60,000 copies purchased in the first week. Sad, very sad (not)

Right Truth

I keep going back to that CNN report about ISIS being involved in the Benghazi attack because it seems incredible that nobody has mentioned it since. They also said there were elements from AQIM.

Presumably those people didn't just come into town by coincidence then get ticked off after seeing the Mohammed film clip. So if they were there ahead of time it seems to mean the thing was planned, not spontaneous. No matter what the terrorist says.
