Suspected ringleader in Benghazi attack is in U.S. custody

I bet Hillary just shit down her leg.

I guess it matters after all, eh?

Depending on what this cretin divulges, this could be bad news for Obama and his little flock of underlings too. All his blather about justice getting done when people harm Americans is enough to trigger my gag reflex.

In a secret raid Sunday, U.S. special operations troops captured the suspected ringleader of the 2012 attack against two American government facilities in Benghazi, Libya, putting a key figure in the deadly assault in U.S. hands for the first time, U.S. officials said Tuesday.

Ahmed Abu Khatallah was captured near Benghazi by U.S. troops working with the FBI, and was taken to an undisclosed location outside Libya, the Pentagon said in a statement that described him as “a key figure in the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi.”

There were no casualties in the raid and all U.S. personnel have left Libya, the statement said.
Suspected Benghazi ringleader captured by U.S.
A suspected ringleader of the deadly 2012 attack on two American government facilities in Benghazi, Libya, is in U.S. custody.

President Obama, in statement, said the capture "demonstrated that we will do whatever it takes to see that justice is done when people harm Americans."

Obama said the U.S. also remained committed to supporting the Libyan people "as they work to overcome years of tyranny and do the difficult work of building a democracy."

Khatallah’s capture is a major success for the Obama administration, which has faced a steady drumbeat of criticism from Republicans since the Benghazi attacks for failing to capture the perpetrators and for poor security at a U.S. diplomatic compound and a CIA base nearby.

This is likely a political move to push the Benghazi "the video did it" to save the nag.

Ran across this as well. Add this to my above theorem.
