While we’re absolutely certain that Alex Jones and other deluded right-wing nutjobs will be claiming that President Obama is hiding him in a beach house in the Cayman Islands or something ridiculous, those of you who don’t hail from the stupid part of America will be pleased to know that one of the men suspected of the September 11, 2012 terror attack on the Benghazi diplomatic compound in Libya has been found dead.
Faraj al-Shibli was last seen being detained by a local militia, according to sources. It is unclear what happened to him, but the end result is all that matters: He was found dead in the town of Marj.
While this is likely to be considered a scenario concocted by President Obama to distract from…Benghazi…just like the capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala, the mastermind of the attack, those of us who aren’t conspiracy-theory-spouting morons can appreciate that we are finally seeing justice for the four men killed in the attack on the compound.
In 2013, al-Shibli was detained by Libyan officials and questioned by the FBI upon returning from Pakistan, according to several officials, though it is not clear whether al-Shibli was present at the time of the attack. AQAP, an al Qaeda affiliate, released a statement saying that al-Shibli’s demise was revenge for the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi, a senior operative, in Pakistan. However, the group did not claim responsibility for the attack.
