When the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was attacked in 2012 on the anniversary of the terror attacks in New York City and Washington D.C. on 9/11/2001, it seemed as though the Obama administration couldn’t put the event in the rearview mirror fast enough.

Obama and his Sec. of State Hillary Clinton developed talking points, sent Ambassador and designated mouthpiece, Susan Rice, out to face the questions from the press on the Sunday morning news shows and lie.

The families of the four victims –Ambassador Christopher Stevens, two former Navy SEALs, Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods, and a U.S. Foreign Service information management, Sean Smith – were left without answers, and anyone who raised the attack as an issue during the final weeks of the presidential campaign was mocked.

Today, five years later, after the end of Obama’s second term, Hillary Clinton’s inability to secure the presidency for herself in 2016, and the election of a new president who is not afraid to utter the phrase, “radical Islamic terrorists,” or state his goal of wanting to “Make America Great Again” the mood is decidedly different.

“Our memory is deep and our reach is long, and we will not rest in our efforts to find and bring the perpetrators of the heinous attacks in Benghazi to justice,” Trump said as the capture of a militant who was involved in the attack was captured.

The announcement was confirmed by two officials on Monday.

The FBI and special operations forces have captured a militant, identified as Mustafa al-Imam.

Mustafa will not be placed in the military detention facility at Guantanamo, Cuba, but is being brought to Washington, D.C. to be charged in federal court by the Department of Justice.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also struck a different tone than Hillary Clinton did when she held that position at the time of the attack.

Tillerson said he had spoken with relatives of the four Americans killed that night – and assured them the U.S. government would “spare no effort” to hold al-Imam accountable.

And Attorney General Jeff Sessions released a statement praising the joint effort that resulted in the detention of al-Imam.

“I am grateful to the FBI, our partners in the intelligence community, and the Department of Defense who made this apprehension possible. The United States will continue to investigate and identify all those who were involved in the attack – and we will hold them accountable for their crimes.”

Do you believe the Trump administration has been more committed to tracking down those responsible for the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks than the Obama administration?
