Obama to Let Benghazi Ringleader off Easy

The Obama administration is refusing to seek the death penalty against one of the ringleaders of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The development gives Ahmed Abu Khatalla to withhold information during cross-examination, such as how terrorists obtained information on the consulate’s weak security.

Had he faced certain death, Khatalla would have no reason to cut any prospective deals with the Obama administration.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Ahmed Abu Khatalla, the accused ringleader of the of the Benghazi terrorist attacks that killed four Americans including a U.S. ambassador, will not face the death penalty if found guilty, Justice Department officials announced Tuesday.
The decision was revealed in a filing to D.C.’s federal trial court and marks a victory for Khatalla’s attorneys who had pressed the government to nix the death penalty as a punishment should the Libyan militant be convicted at trial, the Associated Press reported.
