Released Gitmo Prisoner May Have Headed Libya Attack

Sufyan Ben Qumu is thought to have been involved and even may have led the attack, Fox News' intelligence sources said. Qumu, a Libyan, was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 2007 and transferred into Libyan custody on the condition he be kept in jail. He was released by the Qaddafi regime as part of its reconciliation effort with Islamists in 2008.

Talk about naive.  We sent the terrorist to Libya, and trusted those thugs to keep him locked up?  What sort of idiocy was that?

Below is a picture of the al-Qaeda flag flying over Benghazi courthouse.

All the leftists who spent so much time wailing and gnashing teeth over Gitmo should be quite proud.  And in case anyone thinks this is a purely partisan comment, rest assured that the date of the thug's release has been duly noted.  Islamist apologists come in all flavors, just with some worse than others.

Keep f***ing that chicken.

Thank you, Winston, for contributing to the discussion in such an intelligent manner. You never fail to impress.

This is an amazing coincidence surely backed-up by the WH. A released Gitmo prisoner in Libya on 9/11 with grenade launchers, mortars and machine guns at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi all at the time of a "spontaneous protest. “ Sec Rice & Clinton would agree one hell uva an unfortunate coincidence for Ambassador Stevens but I guess it was 'just his time.' I mean that's the Obama administration explanation, they would bullshit us would they?

Get to your local Wal-Mart when it opens and count the first 20 people that walk-in the door. Their all smarter than anyone in the Obama administration.

It's depressing, given the quality of The People of Walmart, but I'll bet most of those 20 would have a fairly clear notion of the difference between "friend" and "enemy," unlike the superbly educated folks who think closing Gitmo and releasing the terrorists is a dandy idea.

. . . and keep f***ing THAT chicken, too.

Note to self:

Must stop eating chicken.

Given Winnie's recent posts, I'm wondering if we need an age limit for this blog. Something like a minimum of 14 years old to post. That would keep Winnie out for a couple of years, at least.

Ah, yeah. Probably most of them pay no income taxes, are dependent upon government, believe they are victims, believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, believe they’re entitled to health care, food, housing, you-name-it. They’ll never be convinced they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

You insufferable snob. You’re not fit to shine most Wal-Mart shoppers’ sneakers.

Maybe some Tuff Tawk from you folks would put the situation right and set these people straight. Some chest-thumping from Mr. Dancing Horse maybe? What do the Green Lantern neocons advise? A nuclear bomb perhaps?

September 20, 2012 at 13:51 | Unregistered CommenterWinston

Skinny, all we need to do is not travel to Pakistan. Or to Libya. Or to Sudan. Or to anywhere else in the Islamic world. Or to any of our embassies. Oh, and we need to stay out of Paris, London, Madrid, Berlin, and anywhere else the Islamists are setting up shop.

I'm sure this is all covered in Hillary's book about Smart Power. Ask Barry.

Danger of Middle East embassies was brought a bit closer to home for us recently.

Got a phone call from family that the spouse of a relative is working in an embassy in one of the countries with lots of protest activity.

Hope to God that embassy has some fricking protection, including real bullets.

September 20, 2012 at 14:51 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Your relative deserves protection, Duff. After the horrible carelessness in Libya, something must be going on to beef up security at other diplomatic missions.

September 20, 2012 at 15:03 | Unregistered CommenterRedBeard


As long as there no where near "spontaneous protests" by our Islamic Brotherhood friends they should be fine. Btw, on 9/12 most Wal-Mart shoppers knew the Libya attack was a terrorist strike. Obama, still in disbelief his apology didn't work.

September 20, 2012 at 15:12 | Unregistered CommenterThomas Miller

Who else knew before Barry that the Libya was a terrorist attack?

1). Inspector Clouseau
2). Chief of Police Clancy Wiggum
3). Deputy Barney Fife
4). The military
5). The CIA

I don't want to put specifics on the public board where a search engine could catch it, but I sent a secure message to the "Contact Us" to let site editors have more info.
I will share info with interested folks, but off the board or through editor if editor is willing.
Relative (by marriage) was very close to being in some deep stuff, in one of them-there far-away countries. Gotta ask that details stay unpublished, please.

September 20, 2012 at 16:31 | Registered CommenterDuff, man

Thanks, Duff. We understand your caution. Unlike lefties, the rest of us know who the enemy is, and what he wants to do to us.

And this doesn't help much. Look at this crap, look up the meaning of dhimmitude, and then weep for America. This pathetic excuse for an administration must be relieved of duty immediately, and replaced by people with at least an observable fragment of backbone.
