Given the dismal results the Bush-Cheney administration had in capturing terrorist ringleaders, one can only imagine the schadenfreude erupting on the right at the news that the U.S. has finally gotten its’ hands on one of the ringleaders of the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya:
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 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.
Khattala’s apprehension is a major victory for the Obama administration, which has been criticized for having failed so far to bring those responsible for the Benghazi attacks to justice.(Washington Post via. Crooks & Liars)
Say whatever you want about the Obama Administration (and given the fact I was once a conservative critic of the administration), but make no mistake: they will go to the end of the earths to track down and capture terrorists who commit attacks against the United States…unlike the prior administration.
