The AP’s Kimberly Dozier reports that officials have identified five suspects in last year’s Benghazi attacks, but because of the White House’s preferred protocol, they are unable to make any actual arrests:

 The officials say they have enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists — but not enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.

If this is true, it’s pretty devastating.

    Gee, I wonder why they won’t arrest them.

    • keyboard jockey

      It can’t be because the State Department was running guns to them that’s for sure/

      • Gordon

        Curse you. Beat me to it!

  • CHHR

    Let’s see, civilian court defense… Obama made me do it…
    Military Tribunal defense as terrorists… NONE!

    He won’t arrest them until they say “we support gun control.”

  • LinTaylor

    Won’t seize them militarily…this from the man who claims the right to execute US citizens, without trial, using remote-controlled bombers.

    Nice moral dissonance there, Barry.

    • OLLPOH

      Remember he got Accolades for “Not” using a Drone on Usama bin Laden. Yet a cleric in Oklahoma today is saying really bad things about Obama.


    Because they aren’t as big a Fish as Usama bin Laden.

    Only Legendary Accolades For Barack Only.
    Benghazi doesn’t help his Legacy.

    Only Impugn When He Decides To Impugn.
    It Is ObamaGovt versus Original Constitutional Republic.

    Remember, Ft. Hood Major Nadel Hasan is Disgruntled Employee and Not A Terrorist Attacker.

  • Sharkteeth

    This is bizarre. What kind of twisted plot is this. I know I have read that a journalist saw one of them in Benghazi weeks after the attack in the open. Or am I dreaming?

      You do realize you are on a biased conservative site, right?

      • ObamaFail

        So biased liberal sites are no big deal, right?

        • Sharkteeth

          Gary don’t mind my fascist stalker “Laughing”, I made an impression on him somehow. He did not like my O’bitler avatar.

        • $50001250

          Just as bad as biased right wing sites. now you are learning

    • kate_middleton

      Yeah, it was the NYT. He was at a cafe drinking a smoothie or something. I believe they even entered a correction to correct exactly what he was drinking.

      Any why on earth would these guys be given civilian trials in the US? This attack took place in Libya. Or if the consulate was considered US soil, then it should be treated as an army base so give them to the military. I mean, wtf. These people are idiots.

    • Marcy Cook

      No you are not dreaming. It was on the news. He was in a coffee shop.

    Patience, grasshopper; we must wait for the beginning of spike-the-football season, the next occurrence of which will be in the Autumn of 2014.

  • Stupid Republic

    He doesn’t want them arrested because they’re really not suspects, they’re just composites of other terrorists.

  • TocksNedlog

    Well, to be fair, it WAS a long time ago. Perhaps the statute of limitations has run out?

  • TocksNedlog

    Eric Holder will have a comment on this story — as soon as he finishes reading Kimberly Dozier’s private emails.

  • Namvet527

    Let’s seize O-TRAITOR as a TERRORIST

  • Imustbestupid

    You can’t arrest them !!! They said they didn’t know anything about it and it was that other muslim guy !

  • detroit19

    Why, why, why are enemy combatants being tried in civilian courts rather than in military tribunals? These pos are involved, militarily, in trying to exterminate us. I’m pretty sure being a terrorist is way different than speeding, driving while intoxicated, being child support deadbeats, bank robbers, carjackers, spouse beaters…well actually they can, are are carjackers and beat their wives, but I digress…

  • mickeyco

    I would think it would be easy enough to find some legitimate Americans perfectly willing to go after them. Needn’t worry about a trial. It’s not our military that are the cowards.

  • Raymond Gaddis

    not to worry as soon as potus sees this on the news hes gonna take care of it !lol

    • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

      You are today’s winner. He hasn’t watched the news yet.

      • Raymond Gaddis

        thank u thank u lol

  • ObamaFail

    Remember when Obama said that once we found out who the terrorists were they would be brought to justice? It was a few days after he finally admitted that it was terrorism and not because of a video. Now we know who did it, and Obama doesn’t want to do anything about it?

  • Republicanvet

    Is this another case where some administration hack has decided they don’t want to send the military into an unknown situation?

    Clueless buffoons.

  • stillinthe60s

    So Libyan terrorists are getting the New Black Panther Party treatment?

  • Roto

    Send in Seal Team 6.

      Extortion 17 So they will be new members.

  • russ

    afraid they may tell the truth about who planned it..

  • AZWarrior

    Deeper into the sewer that is Obama’s world. Feel dirty enough yet? No? OK, there will be more and more.

  • Zathras11 @B5
