BREAKING: Ahmed Abu Khattala, the suspected ringleader of the 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate in Libya, was captured by US forces. US officials say he is ‘en route’ to America.
U.S. Special Operations forces carried out a secret raid and captured Abu Khattala near Benghazi. American troops worked alongside the FBI following months of planning to carry out the raid, the Washington Post reports. Officials said there were no casualties in the operation and all U.S. personnel involved have safely left Libya, with Khattala “in a safe location.”
The capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala is a major victory of the Obama Administration, that has been criticized repeatedly by Republicans for a ‘cover-up’ and for failing to bring to justice those responsible for the attack that claimed the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Um, this latest turn of events means President Obama is trying to distract us from a Benghazi cover-up by capturing the alleged ringleader of the Benghazi attack. Of course, former congressman Allen West is leading the charge on saying he smells a rat and this was conveniently staged to deflect from other nightmares. Er, just like the nightmare George W. Bush created by invading Iraq.
