Benghazi suspect convicted on 4 of 18 criminal charges

Unindicted co-conspirator.

A federal jury acquitted Ahmed Abu Khattala of the bulk of charges he faced in connection with the 2012 deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, but found him guilty of four criminal counts.

In a verdict announced Tuesday, Abu Khattala was found guilty of conspiracy to provide material support and resources to terrorists and of providing material support to terrorists. He was also found guilty of maliciously destroying and injuring dwellings, a charge that stems from the attack on the mission, and of carrying a firearm during a crime of violence.

Federal prosecutors had charged him with 18 criminal counts.

    So I guess he was found not guilty of being possession of the anti-muslim video that Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Barack Obama all blamed as the cause of the death of the US ambassador in Benghazi?

    The day that this happened on, September 11, a.k.a. 9/11, was purely coincidental and Barack Obama had already claimed credit for destroying Al Qaeda in the campaigning run up to his second term election. /sarc

    Courts are for prosecuting common criminals, not muslim fanatic terrorists at war with entire countries and civilizations.

      Public works was an endless job, since often once schools or other public facilities was built and the guarded builders went away, the islamic militants came back and blew it up again, and again, and again, after every rebuild.

    When your whole case is based on evidence provided by somebody that was paid $7,000,000 for information you don’t have much.
