Lone Suspect In Benghazi Attack Is Released

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Lawyer: Tunisian suspect in Libya attack freed

January 8, 2013

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) — The only suspect in custody over the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi has been conditionally released by Tunisian authorities due to lack of evidence, his lawyer said Tuesday.

The release of Ali Harzi, a Tunisian, represents a blow to the investigation of the Sept. 11 attack on the consulate in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans. The investigation in Libya itself has been stalled due to the weak power of the central government in the face of the powerful militias, some of whom may have been involved in the attack.

So how is it possible that the blue-ribbon commission on Benghazi has already issued its report to Congress — when the investigation "has been stalled"?

Harzi’s lawyer Anwar Oued-Ali said his client was freed Monday night but has to remain in the greater Tunis area in case the court needs him.

Something he is sure to do. They’ have his word.’

Harzi had previously been interrogated by FBI officials in the presence of a Tunisian judge in December. He was originally detained in Turkey and in October was extradited to Tunisia, where authorities had said he was "strongly suspected" of being involved in the attack.

His lawyer had always maintained there was no evidence linking him to the attack.

Something tells us he has nothing to worry about, and that he will probably never be heard from again.

But where is the outrage? Especially, in view of all of Obama and Hillary’s solemn promises to track down the murderers of those four Americans?

The biggest “blow” to any investigation these days is the president and his justice department. The release of the only suspect is simply Oblameless’ business as usual.

    Per memo to the administration and it’s minions: If we get caught… sweep it under the rug. Use hyperbole and lies to redirect public attention onto a crisis of our own making. Control is everything, and with the fiscal debates that are coming up we can rest assured that the media will have their brooms ready to sweep this right out of sight for good.

    I just realized I never see the bumper sticker “If you’re not angry, you’re not paying attention” any more in these parts. I used to see it all the time but ever since Obama’s been President, I guess suddenly everything’s hunky-dory.
    The truth is, most people AREN’T paying attention. People who only listen to NPR and watch network news obviously have no idea what’s going on. And should you try to tell them or lend them a book to read, they will stop you talking/refuse to read the book. My own mother never wanted to hear any facts about Obama fingers in ears “lalalala”…I could never figure out why…later I realized all her church friends were campaigning for Obama and I get the feeling liberal ideology was preached at her church.
    The truth is, I hear and read stuff every day that makes me feel like my head is going to explode.
    Whatever happened to Woodward and Bernstein? I thought people went into journalism to emulate them, that they thought it was exciting.
    Oh yeah, that was when they were investigating the other party.
    Who cares why they didn’t send help to the Americans in Benghazi. We’re due for another story about Michelle’s arms.
