No reasonable person was ready to believe former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the former Obama administration when they passed the blame for the Benghazi terror attack in Lybia on a YouYube clip that was denouncing the founder of Islam.
It was probably the last thing on Clinton’s mind that a man who witnessed the appalling terror attack on September 11, 2012, would be taken to a United States court to testify and protect himself against accusations that “range from murder of an officer of the United States to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists,” according to The Washington Times. The trial commenced on Monday.
It might not be that surprising for us, but it does seem that he didn’t care at all about any video on YouTube.
According to a statement by the prosecution at Ahmed Abu Khattala’s trial, the man disdains the United States and its citizens, and he had allegedly organized the terror assault that resulted in the death of four U.S. citizens, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.
According to Prosecutors, Khatallah was neither responsible for the blaze whose smoke led to the death of Ambassador Stevens and U.S. information management officer Sean Smith, nor for the mortar attack that killed security officers Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Khatallah had instead “incited others to do his dirty work,” says Assistant U.S. Attorney John Crabb.
Crabb determinedly maintained that Khatalla “hates America with a vengeance.”
In light of the assault, Hillary and the Obama administration alleged that the attack occurred due to the internet trailer for a movie called “Innocence of the Muslims,” that depicted Muhammad as a young man with unknown parents and portrayed him as almost mentally disabled.
“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” said Hillary in a statement according to the National Review and the Republican Party’s website in September 2012.
“The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”
