Report: Former “Dangerous” Gitmo Detainee Responsible for Benghazi Terrorist Attack [Video Update]

LAST NIGHT FNC’s Ed Henry reported via Twitter that the man who is thought to have led the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack was Sufyan Ben Qumu, a former Gitmo detainee.

A State Department profile of Sufyan Ben Qumu, aka Sofiane Ibrahim Gammu, is below. It describes the terrorist as “a dangerous man with no qualms about committing terrorist acts.”

Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed notes that the file above was exposed by Wikileaks in 2011.

      The FNC video is buggy, but it’s up now. I’ve tweeted Baier & FNC to see if they can fix it.

      Oh, and I forgot to add the most important item. He was released in 2007.

        There’s rumour going around that the Blind Sheik might be released and that Morsi is calling for it.

    I am confused. I thought it was just a protest with no clear evidence specific evidence that the protest about a movie on September, 11 that lead to his death was a terror attack. I did get a chance to hear Obama and Clinton apologize for the movie. THis story really seems to be evolving on a daily basis.

    It seems that the people who called it a terrorist attack against the USA on the anniversary of September, 11 2001 were absolutely right all along after all.
