So Obama gives Egypt a bunch of F-16s and in return they won’t allow us access to a terrorist involved in the Benghazi attack? Well done, Barack.
Via Fox News:
The U.S. has been denied direct access to the only publicly known suspect in custody in connection with the Benghazi terror attack, Fox News has learned, with U.S. interrogators still unable to sit in the same room as the Egypt-held prisoner to ask questions.
Abu Ahmed, also known as Mohammed Jamal, is suspected of establishing Islamist training camps in Eastern Libya where militants who took part in the Sept. 11 Benghazi terrorist attack were able to train.
Ahmed is not suspected of directly taking part in the attack which left four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, dead. But this is at least the second time U.S. interrogators have been denied access to a suspect held by a foreign government.
Thomas Joscelyn, with the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, said some of the militants Ahmed helped train “directly took part” in the Benghazi attack.
“As early as 2011, he was setting up training camps inside eastern Libya as early as 2011 … and they were drawing in recruits from around North Africa and Egypt — if you bring them in, train them in terms of how to operate mortars and various types of heavy artillery, and it’s that type of artillery that was used in the attack in Benghazi.”
