Meaningless Criminal Charges Filed in Benghazi Attack Investigation

At the Wall Street Journal, "U.S. Files Sealed Charges in Benghazi Attack: Move Marks First American Response to Assault That Killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya" (via Memeorandum).

Read it all at the link.

The piece has an update and correction that reads, "The U.S. filed sealed charges against a number of individuals related to last year's attack on U.S. diplomatic posts in Benghazi, Libya. A headline on an earlier version of this article incorrectly said the U.S. filed sealed indictments."

So, the "charges" aren't really an "indictment," which means that no one's going to trial. Indeed, CNN reports that it's not clear if the administration plans to detain anyone, "It couldn't be learned when the United States plans to announce the charges or whether there is any intention to try to detain [Ahmed Abu] Khattala or the others."

This means nothing. The administration has never been serious about "bringing the terrorists to justice." Indeed, Obama's drone policy was driven by the need to actually avoid capturing militants, which would be a little inconvenient considering the Democrats bullshit hypocrisy on Guantanamo, trials in civilian courts and all the other leftist clusterf-k claims.

These people are basically traitors. It's sickening.
