|The attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi nets arrests.|
I just about had it with these armchair pansies bemoaning President Barack Obama and former State Department secretary Hillary Clinton's handling of the 2012 attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya that led to the death of four Americans.
Make this clear, September 11, 2001 was the worst attack on American soil. It occurred during the first term of George W. Bush. If Republicans were so concerned over the handling of national security, they should have looked at Bush during the first nine months in office.
The conservative media is such a bunch of hypocrites.
They support the terrorists more than the president. I mean this capture can bring closure to the families who lost their love ones during that night on September 11, 2012.

Republicans are by far the worst when it comes to national security. They claim they're more tougher on national security but yet allows extremism to continue to exist in America with letting mentally insane individuals purchase firearms.
They allow people to continue to march with degrading images of the president and openly threaten law enforcement with the "tree of liberty" nonsense.
They conspire to destroy those they deem inferior to their radical Christian beliefs.
They can't even fault the terrorists responsible for the deaths of four Americans. They rather blame the president and Clinton for this than the mastermind who was responsible for this.
The Associated Press reports this capture of the Ansar al-Sharia leader will be tried in American courts.
Republicans want this man to be placed in GITMO.
Obama administration officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala, a senior leader of the Benghazi branch of the terror group Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, will be tried in U.S. court. He was captured by U.S. forces on Sunday and is being held in an undisclosed location outside of Libya, according to the Pentagon press secretary, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said the capture makes clear that the U.S. is fulfilling its pledge to bring to justice those responsible.
"The capture of Abu Khattala is not the end of that effort but it marks an important milestone," Carney said.
Stevens was the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in the line of duty in more than 30 years.
Last year, the U.S. filed charges against Khattala and a number of others in a sealed complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington. However, until now, no one had been arrested in the attack in which a group of militants set fire to the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
The Obama administration has come under intense criticism from Republicans for being unable to apprehend those responsible for the attack.

In the immediate aftermath of the stunning attack, political reaction formed along partisan lines that hold fast to this day.
Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and others said President Barack Obama had emboldened Islamic extremists by being weak against terrorism. But the public still credited Obama with the successful strike against al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden a few months earlier in Pakistan.
The accusation that took hold was a Republican charge that the White House intentionally misled voters by portraying the Benghazi assault as one of the many protests over an anti-Muslim video made in America, instead of a calculated terrorist attack under his watch.
Obama accused the Republicans of politicizing a national tragedy. He insists that the narrative about the video protests was the best information available at the time.
After 13 public hearings, the release of 25,000 pages of documents and 50 separate briefings over the past year and a half, the arguments are the same.
Of course with this capture comes the claim that he was in open light. After all he gave interviews to the junk food media.
Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zarhiri, Adam Gadahn, Anwar al-Awlaki and Samantha Lewthwaite gave interviews with the junk food media too.
bin Laden was killed in 2011 after U.S. Special Forces made a surprise attack on his home in Pakistan.
al-Awlaki was killled in 2011 after a U.S. drone fired upon his vehicle in Southeastern Yemen. It killed him and one of his oldest sons.
The other three are still active and still have access to the junk food media.
It doesn't matter where they're located if they're convicted of funding and aiding terrorism, the United States and its allies will do their best to capture these people.
They don't have to fire a gun. They get others to do their dirty work. Kind of like Republicans and Democrats who serve in Congress and not on the battlefield.
