Jihadist Who Led Benghazi Attack Was Former Gitmo Detainee Sufyan Ben Qumu
You cannot make this stuff up folks. It is being reported that the man that led the Libya attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was on Al Qaeda’s payroll and was released by the Obama Administration in 2007.
The attack on the American embassy was not because of the “Innocence of Muslims – The Muhammad” Movie Trailer on Youtube but because it was a terrorist attack.
From fox News:
On tonight’s Special Report, Bret Baier reported on an exclusive breaking news alert: intelligence sources are convinced the Mideast attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was directly tied to Al Qaeda.
Catherine Herridge reported that they believe that Sufyan Ben Qumu (whose name has also been transliterated as Sofiane Ibrahim Gammu) was likely involved in the attack, and even may have led the attack on the consulate.
Qumu – a Libyan – was released from the US prison at Guantanamo Bay in 2007 and transferred to Libyan custody under the condition that he would be kept in jail. He wasn’t.
According to his Gitmo files, he was also tied to 9/11 financiers, and his alias is “found on a list of probable Al Qaeda personnel receiving monthly stipends and family support.”
