Is timing of Benghazi suspect capture an issue?
If reporters previously were able to get near this man, why the wait to get him?
James Rosen asks a valid question as Jen Psaki proves once again that she’s the new Jay Carney.
Now that Ahmed abu Khattalah has finally been captured, it’s perfectly legitimate to question the timing and the method of his capture.
If Khattalah could be found for an interview with the New York Times in 2012, why did it take so long for us to capture him?
The Washington Free Beacon reported:
Fox News correspondent James Rosen badgered State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki Tuesday afternoon regarding the overdue capture of Ahmed abu Khattalah, a key suspect in the 2012 Benghazi attacks.
Psaki had previously told AP reporter Matt Lee that it should not come as a surprise that a suspected terrorist would be more likely to show up for an interview than he or she would for a scheduled meeting with the U.S. special forces. “The question being put to you, it seems to me, is why U.S. special forces couldn’t have an unscheduled meeting with this individual in a period of time less than, as you put it, just a few years?” Rosen asked.
The State Department spokeswoman dodged the question, telling Rosen that there are a myriad of reasons why individuals, including terrorists, meet with reporters.

The real question: Who are they going to trade this guy for?
(I heard the WH was shopping him to Knicks in a bid to get Carmelo Anthony but they did not have the cap room. Plus – the Knicks wanted a Terrorist to be named later.)
Our State Depart. should be called The Society of Artless Liars.
They really are just openly insulting us now, complete with that attitude of sneering contempt.
I think we should return the compliment.
Here is a classic from this woman that everyone should enjoy. “Press Laughs at Psaki Saying Obama ‘Doesn’t Give Himself Enough Credit’ on His Foreign Policy”

The Conservative Treehouse has an interesting answer to the question, “why now?” here:
The Crimin is just trying to throw dirt over this scandal – so they can screech “What Difference Does It Make” “See we solved it.”
Of course the timing doesn’t matter. You right wing nut cases are a bunch of paranoid conspiracy kooks.
What time is the game on?
Why was this guy on the loose in Libya to begin with? Oh, that’s right, a little illegal war started by Obama. But now the Prez wants credit for cleaning up one of the many loose ends he himself created? Rich.
Here’s the Reason.
“Ahmed Abu Khattala is directly connected to the covert transfer of U.S. arms from Qatar to Libya in the initial 2011 decision to arm the Benghazi “rebels”.
Against the backdrop of recent discoveries about Qatar giving some of the aforementioned arms, specifically stinger missiles, to the Taliban in Afghanistan – Khattala became a risk of exposure to the White House.
They needed to throw a bag over him.”
I miss Jay Carney. He was much more entertaining when he lied. She’s just annoying.
P.S. I notice that coincidentally at this time Hillary Clinton is backtracking and denying her certainty about the Benghazi video claim. Also saying that the child illegals flooding the border should be deported. I guess we’re now in full election preparation mode.
