Abu Sufian bin Qumu former Detainee released from Guantanamo Bay by George W Bush in 2007 implicated in the Benghazi attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stephens and three other Americans.


Militiamen under the command of Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the leader of Ansar al-Sharia in the Libyan city of Darnah, participated in the attack that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, U.S. officials said.


In 2007, Qumu was released from the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and sent to Libya, where he was detained. The Libyan government released him in 2008.


The State Department is expected to tie Qumu’s group to the Benghazi attack when it designates three branches of Ansar al-Sharia, in Darnah, Benghazi and Tunisia, as foreign terrorist organizations in the coming days.

Obama exchanged 5 Detainees for One POW; Bush released over 500 Detainees; Regan gave Iran 1,500 Missiles for Hostages; where was the GOP Out-Cry!

Despite the Republicans going nuts I think America is fortunate that President Obama exchanged the five Detainees for Sgt. Bowe Brigdhal, because, had President Obama left Sgt. Brigdhal as a POW and the Republicans found out, they would have gone Ape-Nuts!


The Congressional Republicans and their surrogates are not “stupid” people, but they are very deceptive, egregious and pernicious. Their Out-Cry is just to continue to throw Red-Meat to their dwindling base who are very uninformed, ignorant and brainwashed. It is easier for the Republicans to fool their base than for others to convince them that they are being fooled.


George W. Bush released over 500 Detainees from GITMO and there wasn’t a single complaint from any GOP Law Maker. Ronald Reagan illegally gave Iran 1,500 Missiles for the exchange of Hostages and it was the same, no GOP complaint.


Under Reagan we had 60 attacks at our foreign Embassies and 90 people died and under Bush we had 30 attacks with 60 dead. Under Obama we have had one attack in Benghazi with 4 dead and after 13 hearings, a Criminal Investigation that was done by Former Republican Ambassador Thomas Pickering and General Michael Mullen that found no malfeasance, Republicans are holding another Congressional Investigation.


 I think the Public should accept two things; Irrespective of what good President Obama has done and continues to do, Republicans are not going to give him any credit for it. It was George W. Bush and the Republican Senate and House that started two wars; gave a trillion dollar tax cut to the rich and crashed the economy, but, somehow they have managed to convince their brainwashed base, that it is Obama’s fault.


The second thing that the Public has to accept is that, Congressional Republicans, Governors and the likes, they are not dumb, illiterate people, they are educated, but they pretend ignorance about facts including denying Climate Change Science in order to keep their based, ignorant, uninformed and brainwashed. Republicans are terrified about having an educated, informed and knowledgeable of the facts American Population, because they know if that becomes fact, it would be fifty years or more before they would win the Presidency or control any of the two branches of Congress!

After 5 years in captivity Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is freed and Republicans claim President Obama broke the law!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2014 by sheriffali

The Policy that the Republicans are claiming as to why President Obama broke the Law, isn’t what the facts states. Sgt. Bergdahl was a Prisoner of War and as such he was exchanged for Prisoners we have had in the illegal Guantanamo Bay Prison. Obama did try and keep his promise to close Guantanamo Bay, however, this needs authorization from Congress and Republicans have blocked that part.


Less than a dozen cases have been adjudicated from Guantanamo Bay Military Tribunal, however, we have tried in excess of 450 Terrorists in the United States Courts and have had 99.9% conviction.


Irrespective of where people stand on Guantanamo Bay, Americans, I mean all Americans, should be overwhelmed of the release of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s release. The Republicans have gone ape-nuts in criticizing President Obama over the Prisoner exchange. Just ask yourself, if Sgt. Bergdahl was the son of one of these sorry Republicans, “would they be complaining?”


Bush and Cheney broke almost every law in invading Iraq and in so doing we lost over 4,500 precious lives of our soldiers and some 55,000 were severely wounded. Of course we are not even counting the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi lives that were killed in our “so called collateral damage.”
