    Mornin' Maggie. First he has some questions that need to be answered. So they must have taken him thru that process. As it says he is enroute.

    Think BO will try and keep him on the mainland or throw him in with our resident Sheik?

    Was Ahmed briefed about the video and to make sure he mentions that in the future? It's real important he sticks with that story. </ hyper sarcasm>

    That said, it's good to know it only took 2 years to find one of these guys especially since news outlets had known where they were for weeks after the attack.

    U.S. Special Operations forces captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attacks in Benghazi in a secret raid in Libya over the weekend, 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 Sunday near Benghazi by American troops, working alongside the FBI, following months of planning, and was now in U.S. custody “in a secure location outside Libya.” The officials said there were no casualties in the operation, and that all U.S. personnel involved have safely left Libya. The Washington Post learned about the capture Monday but agreed to a request from the White House to delay publication of a story because of security concerns.

    Officials, speaking on condition of anonymity about the still-secret operation, would not say where Khattala was being held. They said he was “en route” to the United States, but would not say when he was expected to arrive.....snip~

    Mornin' Ockham. Didn't they catch the NY Times reporter questioning after the fact in Libya and getting others to admit about knowing of that video. Even after hundreds said it had nothing to do with any video?

    Trey Gowdy questions:

    1. Can you tell me why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi the night that he was killed?
    2. Does it bother you (the media) whether or not you know why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi?
    3. Do you know why we were the last flag flying in Benghazi, after the British had left and after the Red Cross had been bombed?
    4. Do you know why requests for additional security were denied?
    5. Do you know why an ambassador asking for more security days and weeks before he was murdered and those requests went unheeded. Do you know the reason why those requests went unheeded?
    6. Do you know why no assets were deployed during the siege? And I've heard the explaination which defy's logic frankly. That we couldn't have gotten there in time, but they didn't know when it was going to end.
    7. Do you know if our President called any of our allies and said can you help, we have men under attack?
    8. Do any of you know why Susan Rice was picked? The secretary of state did not go she says she does not like Sunday talk shows, that's the only media venue she does not like, if that's true. Why was Susan Rice on the five Sunday talk shows?
    9. Do you know the origin of this mythology that it was spawned as a spontaneous reaction to a video?
    10. Do you know where that started?
    11. Do you know how we got from no evidence of that, that being the official position of the administration?
    12. Why was security lacking during the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in the U.S.?
    13. Why weren't military units moving to support consulate personnel?
    14. Why were references to "terrorists" and "attacks" edited out of the Obama administrations talking points.


    So which question does this answer Pete?

    Yeah Jack While this guy was sipping his drink and being cocky. He wasn't the real brains behind the attack.



    Ahmed Abu Khattala

    Native of Benghazi in eastern Libya
    Construction worker by trade
    Spent several years in Gaddafi's notorious Abu Salim prison in Tripoli
    Formed his own small militia during the anti-Gaddafi uprising
    Denies any links to al-Qaeda but has expressed admiration for them
    Also denies any role in the attack on the US embassy in 2012, but eyewitnesses report him being there
    US state department says he is a senior leader in Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia
    Has been a vocal and visible presence in eastern Libya since the attack.....snip~

    But someone from Hillary's State Dept Hired this fool. Someone had to get approval too.

    What surprises me was somehow, we made a raid into Libya recently and with all that's being torn up there now. Got out and without taking any casualties.
