    The article you linked in the OP describes him as...

    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 fact that they chose to use such broad and uncommitted language tells me that this guy is a bit player chosen for a propaganda tool.(aka... show pony)

    They have to be real careful or they will have the same problem as the Sheik. KSM was waterboarded 183 times and any evidence obtained by torture is not admissible in US Courts, ergo they would have to let KSM go if tried in the USA. So they try him in a Military Tribunal (Australian derivative from kangaroos} to be certain of the verdict. My guess is that they will pose and parade the new evil with maximum PR exposure and a story line that does not tell the story, but has great sound bytes.

    Heya DF. He would be like a Capt of a group. He might be the Leader of his own. But he isn't one of their Main commanders calling the shots. Here is the guy Calling it for Ansar al Sharia in Libya. He is only 46 years old. Also took a Name like the Z-Man himself.


    Mohammad al-Zahawi, head of Ansar al-Sharia


    The group



    Ansar al-Sharia is an Islamist militia calling for the implementation of strict Sharia law across Libya. The group, whose name means "Partisans of Islamic law" in Arabic, emerged following the February 2011 anti-Gaddafi uprising. It is made up of former rebels from several militias based in eastern Libya, notably the Abu Obayda bin al-Jarah Brigade, the Malik Brigade and the 17 February Brigade.

    The group was officially formed in June 2012 when it issued the "Ansar al-Sharia First Meeting", a communique announcing its inauguration. The number of rebels that fight for the group remains unknown. The group operates mainly in Benghazi and denies having any presence elsewhere in Libya.

    The group's base in Benghazi's Quwarshah district was reportedly bombarded with surface-to-surface missiles by Gen Haftar's forces.....snip~

    Waterboard him, find out what he knows, and then drop him somewhere over the Atlantic.

    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.
    Let's not make a political issue out of this. We got one of the douchebags. I don't give a damn what party is in power. Kudos.

    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?
    Ah, not those questions, listen to the first 43 seconds in the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V6kK7gAU0-A
