Far Left US Law Firm Represented Gitmo Detainee Who Reportedly Murdered US Ambassador
Islamic terrorists attacked the US embassy in Benghazi with rocket propelled grenades and machine gun fire on 9-11. The terrorists were reportedly led by Sufyan Ben Qumu, a former Gitmo detainee and US-backed rebel forces leader.

Far left firm Center for Constitutional Rights represented Sufyan Ben Qumu and helped with his release.
Michelle Malkin reported:
Longtime readers know that I’ve extensively covered the troublesome conflict of interest at the Department of Justice involving Attorney General Eric Holder and his former law firm, Covington and Burling, which has represented a score of Gitmo detainees. See my archive of posts on the matter here. Many readers have asked whether the firm represented Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the former Gitmo detainee released in 2007 — and now named as the possible lead plotter in the bloody attacks on our consulate personnel, staff, and private security contractors in Benghazi.
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. After a trove of Gitmo documents found their way to Wikileaks and were published by the New York Times, CCR rose to Qumu’s defense and parroted jihadi propaganda that the aggrieved Qumu was actually a friend of the U.S.
And thanks to these terrorist apologists our ambassador and three fellow Americans are dead today.
