How could these democratically minded, pluralist “moderates” do such a thing? The State Department analysts must be completely stymied.
“Exclusive: U.S. officials unhappy with handling of Benghazi suspects in April attack,” by Tabassum Zakaria, Mark Hosenball and Susan Cornwell for Reuters, October 15 (thanks to Holly):
(Reuters) – State Department officials suspected that two Libyan guards hired by its own security contractor were behind an April incident in which a homemade bomb was hurled over the wall of the special mission in Benghazi, according to official emails obtained by Reuters.
But the men, who had been taken into custody the day of the attack, were released after questioning by Libyan officials because of a lack of “hard evidence” that could be used to prosecute them, the State Department emails show.
“Amazing,” wrote Eric Nordstrom, then the regional security officer with the U.S. Embassy in Libya, describing the obstacles in prosecuting the suspects….
Not amazing at all, unless you’re a clueless politically correct hack with no idea what is really going on in Libya.
