Obama Donor Helped Free Terrorist Behind Benghazi Attack

The left is rushing to blame Bush for the Benghazi attack, now that the State Department is moving to name a former Gitmo detainee released by Bush as a key figure in the attack.

But Gitmo detainees were released as part of a pressure and lawfare campaign by the radical pro-terrorist left. Including Obama’s backers.

The left-wing organization that helped spring Qumu was the Center for Constitutional Rights. Last April, the group issued an indignant press release painting Qumu as a harmless victim and blasting those concerned about his unrepentant jihadi ways.

And who was running CCR at the time? An Obama backer.

Now the person that headed up the CCR when Qumu was released was none other than Michael Ratner, who not only endorsed Barack Obama in 2008, but also contributed $2,300 to his campaign as well.
Mr Ratner has aided several detainees at Guantanamo Bay, according to the Huffington Post and several have been freed.

Attorney General Eric Holder, who is also linked to CCR, has brought in a raft of terrorist lawyers into the Justice Department, including in the No. 3 position and described them as “patriots”.

In Benghazi, some of Obama and Holder’s patriots helped cause the deaths of four Americans.

    The left fought to release the detainees.

    They fought a media campaign to proves that there was not a high recidivism rate (as it were).

    They intimated that the detainees were joe bystander who got picked up do nothing and were innocent and would not you also become a raving jihadi if that had happened to you.

    Released From Guantánamo, They Took Up Arms


    They’ll deny that their publicity and legal campaign release the wrong ones or that any of them were the wrong ones.

    it figures … he was appointed to his position by Obama who has filled his administration with anti-American types…

      I seem to remember another type of fascist being called patriot in Germany, in the 1930′s.

    It’s all a circle of criminals, thieves and treachery, all designed for their personal gain !

  • Drakken

    Time to take these jihadist in GITMO and feed them to the nice hammerhead sharks that infest that area. As for Ratner, that traitor should join them.

    My God, I did not even realize that liberals were now blaming President Bush for this!

    • Daniel Greenfield

      It’s their default mode

      • Mo86

        True, but this is extreme even for the Left! They’re the ones who’ve been campaigning to have Gitmo closed for years now, long before Obama even came on the scene!

        How they can say such things in public, when they KNOW that everyone knows of their hypocrisy, is simply astounding. How do they sleep at night? How do they look themselves in the mirror every morning?

        You’d think I would be used to this by now.

          The Dems were campaigning for the Iraq War before they were against it.

          Gore claimed he would be tougher on Saddam than Bush

          And Stalin signed a pact with Hitler only for the left to spend the next few decades claiming that the USSR were the only true opponents of Nazi Germany
