Obama: 'We will find you'

The capture of one of the alleged masterminds of the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi will "send a message to the world," President Obama said Tuesday.

"When Americans are attacked, no matter how long it takes, we will find those responsible, and we will bring them to justice," Obama said. "And that's a message I sent the day after it happened, and regardless of how long it takes: we will find you."

The president, speaking during an event on high-tech manufacturing in Pittsburgh, said his "most solemn duty as president and commander in chief is to keep the American people safe."

"I want to make sure that everybody around the world hears that message very clearly," he said.

The president applauded the "courage and precision" of the special forces who captured Ahmed Abu Khattala during a covert mission in Libya.

He also said Khattala was currently being transported back to the United States.

Khattala was among at least a dozen other suspects charged last year for their involvement in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack, which left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens.

"There are a lot of dangers out there and a lot of challenges, and our diplomats serve with incredible courage and valor in some very difficult situations," Obama said. "They need to know that this country has their back and will always go after anybody who goes after us."

The Pentagon said Tuesday that Khattala was taken without any civilian or U.S. casualties, and that the special forces involved in the raid had safely departed Libya.

Obama did not give any hint as to how Khattala would be handled upon his arrival in the U.S.

Some Republicans, including Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), have suggested he should be sent to the Guantanamo Bay prison. Others appeared to suggest he should not be afforded a Miranda warning before being questioned.

“I look forward to hearing more details regarding the raid, and I expect the administration to give our military professionals time to properly gather any useful intelligence he has,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said.

Oh, well. All is forgiven, Barry. You and Hillary are the best. Really.

I don't think this is going to fly very far.

People just aren't impressed anymore when Barry pulls one out of his @ss...

I thought they'd already captured the mastermind, when they arrested the pitiful fool who made that video.

wait, wait, wait ... you mean they're now saying that video wasn't the cause of Benghazi?  So they were, what, utterly and hopelessly incompetent when they blamed him, or lying when they blamed him?

I think they will bring this towel head to New York City, and lodge him there pending trial in Federal Court.  Let that Socialist bleep they elected up there deal with the security threat, by denying there is any security threat at all.  That's what Obama has wanted to do with Club Gitmo residents, and it proved too difficult to effect the transfer.  So why bother with Gitmo when you can bring him directly to New Yawk,  and invest him with the same rights as a US Citizen, and give him a bank of attorneys for his defense.

This might actually be the very best way to finally get the straight story about what really happened in Benghazi that night, as his attorneys would no doubt leak information like sieves......

Perhaps they can buckle down on a couple years worth of e-mails?   :pondering:
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
