Justice Department: Oh Right We've Been Meaning to Charge That Guy Who All But Admits to Attacking the Embassy That CNN Found and Interviewed and We Didn't

The Justice Department has been so hands-off this guy you'd think he racially intimidated voters in Philadelphia.

Thank CNN for making this happen, seriously. Khattalah has been embarrassing the White House for the better part of year, happily chirping to western media that he’s free as a bird despite fingers having been pointed at him as a possible ringleader of the attack since last October. The straw that likely broke the camel’s back, though, was CNN airing its own interview with Khattalah just last week — while taking care to emphasize that, although the feds allegedly had never approached him, they had no trouble getting him to sit down for a two-hour interview. That’s one “smart power” humiliation too far. Between that and Thursday’s bombshell about the CIA’s mysterious activities in Benghazi during the attack, the White House had to do something. The closer we get to the anniversary of the attack, the more nakedly political the charges would look; why not act now, while most of the public’s distracted by the big Al Qaeda terror threat in Yemen?
