The Islamist terror group linked to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans dead, operates unmolested today.
In spite of a vow made by President Obama to bring those responsible to justice, the Ansar al Sharia Brigade continues to operate freely, according to U.S. military officials, as reported Tuesday by the Washington Free Beacon.
Obama first promised the American people justice while standing in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at his side:
“And make no mistake, we will work with the Libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people.”
A little more than a month later, while appearing on Michael Smerconish’s radio program, Obama reiterated that vow:
“But my biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I’ll always keep.”
Of course, this was all in the lead up to the presidential election in November.
More than seven months later, according to a military official, the group linked to the attack remains active in the Mediterranean port city, operating patrols and checkpoints, and “continues to spread its ideology in the Benghazi area, particularly targeting youth,” the Free Beacon reports.
In fact, the terror group is so brazen that it’s using Facebook to publicize its activities, including charitable work in poor areas, and is constructing some buildings. It also claimed to be operating a medical clinic in Benghazi.
And, to be clear, U.S. officials have identified the mastermind of the Benghazi attack, according to Fox News sources, yet, more than seven months later, he walks freely in Benghazi.
As noted by the Free Beacon, the Ansar al Sharia Brigade was formed from Islamists who were part of the revolution to overthrow the Muammar Gaddafi regime in early 2012 and their goal is to create a Libyan state controlled by fundamentalist Sharia law.
