    U.S. Special Operations forces have captured the alleged ringleader of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi in a secret raid in Libya, the first time one of the accused perpetrators of the 2012 assault has been apprehended, according to U.S. officials.

    The officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala was captured over the weekend by American troops working alongside the FBI and is now in U.S. custody “in a secure location outside Libya.” Khattala was apprehended near Benghazi.

    Interesting as I heard from a buddy connected to DEVGRU about 10 days ago and he said to expect this within the next couple weeks.

    No offense but it sounds like your buddy needs to keep his mouth shut

    Glad the dude got taken down. Wonder if we will sink his body at sea also and not show the world he really got what he deserved

    So, I guess that trade was just to make room at club Gitmo. Ohhhh! Ok.

    Good to hear actually. But lies are a funny thing. Now that they have to do the right thing and get this guy, all that nonsense they spouted up front on this issue just looks more ridiculous.

    None taken. Sadly OPSEC isn't what it once was. This was a fairly open "secret" in many communities within Hampton Roads, much like the Bin Laden raid.

    We're probably gonna trade him and the rest of GITMO for all the hostages to be taken at our Bagdhad embassy.

    The Libyan government didn't wish for them to be, but who really gives a shit about their wishes?

    The Libyan government will not allow the FBI into Benghazi to arrest suspects for last year’s deadly terror attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission, a top State Department official told a House panel on Wednesday.

    They have been involved in stuff like this since the HRT was formed.

    Backup plan. If all else fails, they were going to release the kraken.

    He's suppose to be brought to the US to be tried in US court. I'm trying to find the charges I read earlier somewhere. They sounded odd, civilian type charges, "use of a firearm during the commission of a crime", considering it happened in a foreign country.
    I'm not sure why, but the whole thing sounds hinky to me.

    The more I read about this "capture" the more I question it??? The whole thing does not sound right. I just don't trust this president and I do not trust Hillary.

    Interesting ,

    Vince Foster used to trust Hillary also, unfortunately he can not trust her anymore.
