More than two months ago, the Associated Press reported that, "The U.S. has identified five men who might responsible for the attack the diplomatic mission Benghazi, Libya, last year, and has enough evidence justify seizing them military force suspected terrorists, officials say. But there not enough proof try them U.S. civilian court the Obama administration prefers. The men remain large while the FBI gathers evidence." this accurate and, so, who the administration made the decision not use military force bring these terrorists justice immediately, but instead allow them walk free until enough evidence gathered try them U.S. civilian court? Equally important, who made the decision that U.S. court the appropriate venue bring these terrorists justice? you may know, over the weekend Gen. Carter Ham (ret.) attributed lack progress detaining any terrorists Libya's "fragile" government -even though many the terrorist suspects were reportedly foreign fighters and may not even Libya anymore. unlikely that the Libyan government, many other governments the region, will stable cooperative for very long time. Best wishes.
