Video That Had Nothing To Do With Benghazi Motivated Benghazi, Says Guy Who Led Attack In Benghazi
Now that President O’Bungler has finally had Benghazi mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala arrested in an obvious bid to distract everyone from theblossoming scandal of daughter Malia landing a patronage job as a PA on a Halle Berry TV show, we can finally put to rest the big mystery of what exactly motivated a bunch of angry moose limbs to attack our consulate in the first place. Sure, the White House might have originally said they thought the attackers were angry over trollish Internet video “Innocence of Muslims,” and sure, the New York Times reported six months ago that the video did play a part in motivating the attack, but we all know the White House is full of lying liars who lie to cover their asses. So what say you, Mr. Evil Mastermind Khattala?
As the attack in Benghazi was unfolding a few hours later, Mr. Abu Khattala told fellow Islamist fighters and others that the assault was retaliation for the same insulting video, according to people who heard him.
This can’t be right! Jill Abramson would never have allowed such garbage to make the Grey Lady! And isn’t it suspicious that she got fired and a new guy – a new black guy – got appointed, and next thing you know the country’s most well-known newspaper is printing this obvious propaganda in service to The One? Trey Gowdy, call your office!
The other thing about Mr. Khattala is that he sounds like a bit of a nutcase, the Islamist militia leader equivalent of … well, the militia leaders who recently organized their crack legions of La-Z-Boy commandos to guard the Bundy ranch from the Bureau of Land Management death squads. A member of Libya’s parliament who spent time in prison with Khattala is quoted as calling him “Sincere, but … very ignorant” and not “100 percent mentally fit.” When Libya’s various militias organized into one central coalition, Khattala complained that the group supported a Western-backed democracy and not the theocracy he hoped for, so he took his own militia and went home. The coalition's leader said that Khattala "thinks he owns God and everyone else is an infidel."
Also, running a militia was a part-time occupation for Khattala, who made his living as a building contractor. As anyone who has ever remodeled a house can tell you, it makes perfect sense that Khattala had a side gig as a bloodthirsty nutbag with too many weapons and a bunch of friends to go play soldier with them. Shoot, are we sure this guy isn’t from, say, Arkansas?
