U.S. captures Benghazi suspect in secret raid
The Washington Post ^ | June 17, 2014 | Karen DeYoung,, Adam Goldman and Julie Tate

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.

... probably showing him that “Anti-Muslim” video for the first time. You know, the one that was supposed to have touched off the “Spontaneous Demonstration” (with heavy weapons)? Susan Rice is probably softening him up with tapes of Obama stump speeches.

Here's a guy we, the American people, will NEVER ever hear from.

His story won't gibe with Obama's, so he forever lives a redacted life.
