US Arrests First Benghazi Suspect Two Years Later


Reports on Tuesday reveal that US Special Operations forces captured a terrorist leader in Libya on Sunday, the first suspect arrested over the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attack, in which the US ambassador to Libya was murdered along with three other Americans.

Ahmed Abu Khattala, a "senior leader" of the terrorist organization Ansar al-Sharia in Benghazi which has been held responsible for the 2012 attack, was captured by special ops forces in a joint operation with the FBI that was planned for several months.
