DOJ Fails To Have Benghazi Suspects On “Reward For Justice” List

Just a few days after the September 11, 2012 attack on our consulate, CIA annex, and people in Benghazi Mr. Obama had this to say

“What I want all of you to know is that we are going to bring those who killed our fellow Americans to justice,” Obama said at a campaign speech in Golden, Colorado referring to the death of four Americans including the US Ambassador to Libya.

“I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. It will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. No act of violence shakes the resolve of the United States of America,” he vowed.

No one should be particularly surprised that the comments were made during yet another campaign speech post-Benghazi. He has since talked about “bringing them to justice” multiple times in the over one year since 4 Americans, including our Ambassador, were murdered by Islamic jihadis. Meanwhile (and wait till you get a view of the administration rationale)

(Fox News) The State Department’s “Rewards for Justice” program — which offers multimillion-dollar payouts for tips leading to wanted terrorists — does not include suspects in the Benghazi terror attack.

The State Department has not offered an explanation as to why those individuals are not on the list. Pressed by Fox News and The Associated Press on Thursday, spokeswoman Marie Harf suggested the important thing was that the Obama administration is resolved to find those suspects.

“This is nothing at all to do with politics. We’ve made crystal clear that we want to find these people and bring them to justice,” Harf said. “Whether we pay a couple million dollars isn’t the point — the point is we believe it’s a priority … and whether they are on a website or not doesn’t change that.”

That’s some amazing spin, wouldn’t you say? Glad to know that Team Obama is taking the murder of Americans so seriously. Adam Gadahn, the American born mouthpiece of Al Qaeda, has a $5 million price-tag on his head for information leading to his capture or killing. But, don’t fully blame Eric Holder for this one

The decision to include an alleged terrorist in the program is made by the State Department after consulting with the FBI, CIA, Justice Department and National Security Council staff.

Paging John Kerry. Will some intrepid reporter ask him why there are no Benghazi suspects on the Rewards for Justice program list? Kudos to the AP’s Matt Lee for asking Harf questions in the first place, and trying to keep her from playing the spin game

As Harf started to cite what President Barack Obama has said in the past, Lee interrupted her.

“Matt, come on,” she said. “Can I finish my sentence please before you try to interrupt me?”

“Well, the problem is you’re trying to answer my question by not answering it,” Lee shot back.

That’s just one portion of a reporter attempting to get an actual answer. The Washington Free Beacon has the full transcript.

Makes one suspect the killers were part of the Obama administration or perhaps even Obama relatives. At the very least, they were mercenaries hired by Obama to kill and burn to hide whatever nefarious activities were being run out of Benghazi.

Obama is the worst dictator, ever. He could have thrown intrepid reporters off this story merely by putting a bounty on their heads. He could have rounded up a half-dozen Muslim ruffians and had CIA operatives kill them. Done and done.

But no, just like the Obamacare website, this administration has mismanaged the Benghazi cover-up.

And one other thing. The attack and murder of the Benghazi 4 was an act of war. Why didn’t we invade and sack Libya? Libya is an African Muslim nation. Obama is an African Muslim. ‘nough said. An American President would have sent in the Marines.

“From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli…”

N.B. – Tripoli is in Libya.

I think Obama chose Libya for this operation to send a signal to the rest of the Muslim world that we would never send in the Marines.

Here we go…..Jeffery has started down the path of ridicule to avoid dealing with the subject matter.

How utterly predictable.

However, Jeffery once again shows his ignorance in that “act of war” are committed by nations, not terrorists.

So while Jeffey is mocking the dead and dishonoring the men and women who serve this country, maybe he can explain why the people who attacked and killed American citizens at Benghazi are not on the list?

Or is that too difficult for him to understand?

Glad you think 4 Americans, including our ambassador, murdered by Islamic jihadis is a laughing matter, Jeffrey.

W.T.,

Glad you think the murder of 4 Americans is proper political fodder. I take every opportunity to mock the loony right.

What are the names of those that attacked and killed our countrymen?

All we’ve wanted was the truth around Benghazi. Your master Obama did everything to obscure and stonewall. Meanwhile, 4 Americans are dead. And you think it’s funny. Typical fucktard Liberal. I bet you thought 9/11 was funny too.

See, and this makes me think he’s our little troll johnny. Same language and same tact.

BTW, isn’t this spin the same as Ford saying: “yeah, selling our F150 is a top priority with us. Why wouldn’t it be? Just because our top wanted truck is not on our website or being sold for money should not mean we don’t want to sell it.”

cough.. cough.
