This Sept. 12, 2012, file photo shows glass, debris and overturned furniture are strewn inside a room in the gutted U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, after an attack that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

WASHINGTON — A Libyan militant suspected in the deadly attack on Americans in Benghazi has been captured and is in American custody, the Pentagon said Tuesday, marking the first time the U.S. has apprehended one of the purported perpetrators.

Officials said Ahmed Abu Khattala, a senior leader of the Benghazi branch of the terror group Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, will be tried in U.S. court. He is being held in an undisclosed location.

Last year, the U.S. filed charges against Khattala and a number of others in a sealed complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Washington.

Yup; what do you want to bet this so called Libyan militant will confess !!! that he attacked the US consulate because of that phoney video? I think Obama and his total administration are on the verge of total collapse, and it will be a joyous day to see him hit bottom. What do ya think Goo Goo?

This is just the latest administration diversion to distract attention from the mounting scandals engulfing the Obama presidency. This guy has been walking around free as a bird for two years now, giving interviews to the media, etc. They could have had him long ago. They have no shame. But, what the heck, this sort of stuff works like a charm since a preponderance of Americans now appear to be so hopelessly gullible.
