Benghazi suspect detained, even though he didn’t make a YouTube video

For over six months, the only arrest that was made in connection with the Benghazi attack was the guy who did that “Innocence of Muslims” video. You know, the video that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton blamed for the attack, even though they knew it had nothing to do with anything. The video they lied about to cover their own asses. And then, when blaming the First Amendment didn’t work, they lied about that. Layers and layers of lies.

Anyway, now somebody who might actually have something to do with the attack has been detained, according to CNN:

A man suspected of involvement in the September attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi is being held in Libya, according to two sources who have spoken with CNN.

Both sources confirmed the man’s name as Faraj al-Shibli (also spelled Chalabi)…

It is unclear exactly what al-Shibli’s role might have been or whether he was present at the U.S. compound at the time of the attack. It’s also unclear whether his detention is likely to lead to charges in connection with the assault on the compound, which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

It’s a start. Only took six months. But then, what difference does it make? Right, Hillary?
