When it comes to the subject of Benghazi, most functioning humans can agree Hillary’s State Department handled things with equal parts horribleness and corruption (see Clinton State Dept. Hired TERRORISTS for Security in Benghazi. Yes, Really… and Navy Seal on Benghazi: ‘Hillary killed my friend… 600 security requests denied.’). Unfortunately the mishandling doesn’t stop with Her Haggardness. Today a Benghazi suspect walked out of a federal court sans death penalty. Yes, really.
A federal jury found Ahmed Abu Khattala guilty Tuesday on just four of 18 charges related to the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, precluding him from facing the death penalty.
Khattala, 46, was convicted of two counts of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, one count of maliciously destroying U.S. property and placing lives in danger, and one count of using and carrying a semiautomatic weapon during the attack. He faces a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison for the firearms offense and could still receive a life sentence.
Justice served? Not so much. To say “that’s not right” would be to make the understatement of the year. Listen to what the father of Benghazi victim Tyrone Woods has to say about it in this clip from Fox.

He wasn’t the only family member to speak out.
“I am not surprised. I am not happy,” Sean Smith’s mother, Pat, said in a statement responding to the verdict. “My son died a horrible death … I think the people who bear responsibility — Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — aren’t even touched.”
Benghazi’s aftermath will be remembered as a glaring failure of the U.S. judicial system. Almost as glaring and failurely as Hillary’s campaign for the presidency.
