US Special Forces Capture Militant Who Was Instrumental In 2012 Benghazi Attack

Tyler Durden's picture

For all the talk about Paul Manafort's indictiment, one can't help but feel that there is a distinct undercurrent amid today's newsflow focusing on Hillary Clinton: from the resignation of one of the most powerful Democrats, Tony Podesta, who earlier today parted ways with the lobbying firm he founded after it became ensnared in the Mueller probe (and who is also brother of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta) to the sudden reemergence of the Benghazi attack narrative, one wonders if Trump is not preparing to launch a broadside attack on his former presidential challenger.

Lost in the general newsflow, on Monday the AP reported that US special ops forces captured a militant Sunday who was the US says was instrumental in the 2012 attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.  The September 2012 assault killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, and led to allegations that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton failed to provide an adequate response to the attack, and subsequently blamed the attack on a Youtube video clip.

US officials say the mission was approved by President Donald Trump and done in coordination with Libya's internationally recognized government. US official have since identified the suspect as Mustafa al-Imam, and added that American special ops forces captured al-Imam in Misrata, on the north coast of Libya. The official says al-Imam was then taken to a U.S. Navy ship at the Misrata port for transport. He is being taken now to the United States.

The White House is expected to release more details shortly.

As Fox News adds, earlier this month, the trial of Ahmed Abu Khattala began, the alleged mastermind of the 2012 attacks.  It’s not clear if the suspect detailed by US special operations forces is one of Khattala’s lieutenants.  Khatallah had been awaiting trail since 2014, when US Army commandos and FBI agents captured him in Benghazi and put him on a Navy ship for detention in an American prison inside the United States. 

Late on Monday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says the U.S. will "spare no effort to ensure that justice is served" to the militants who committed the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya.

Tillerson thanked military, law enforcement and intelligence officials for the capture of a man they're describing as a key suspect in the deadly assault on the U.S. outpost. Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans were killed. Tillerson also said he spoke with some family members of the four fallen Americans to "underscore the U.S. government's unwavering support."

His full statement below:

And now that the Benghazi narrative is back in the news, how long before Trump decides to casually tweet about it, while casually invoking Hillary's name in the process?

This is great News, I wonder if there is footage of them capturing Hillary?

Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other Americans were killed.

Oh thank God they caught a “suspect” cause you know - fighting a battle is illegal unless you’re on the side of The Forces of Good(tm).

The good news is now Chris Stevens and the three other dead Americans are restored to life, and back with their families.

This dude just wanted to get paid the agreed upon $millions the US/CIA brought with them to buy back weapons from the Libyians. Dead ambassador results.

Oh well, now the proposed pipeline that goes thru Niger will end in a Libyian port. 4 dead green berets. So far

Mission Accomplished for big oil corps!

Trump needs to do alot more than casually invoke her name.

He needs to invoke her wrinkly ass to a black site for some enhanced interrogation.

Who’s “responsible?”

That’s what they’re peddling.

Fuck, I thought I was being facetious when I said it was really amateur night at the Criminal Deep State.

Want to apprehend who’s really responsible?

Where’s Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopath Hillary Clinton’s next book signing?

He was the Key Grip. His job was to catch Killary when she fell.

Is that the guy who they trained first?

Oh shit!  They got his iPhone and Hillary was in his favorites.

She was the "screen saver" bitch.

Hillary only used her iPhone to email about yoga and wedding planning. Oh, that’s right....that was done on her PC and private server.

Did they find the passports in the rubble yet?

JimmyJones's picture

Yes and amazingly they were undamaged, looked like they were brand spanking new and not even opened yet.  Amazing they were in that condition after that type of destruction just sitting on top of it all, like they wanted to be found...

There was also a confession, though oddly it was written in Yiddish. Trump said everything looks kosher, though.

Yeah, he is Canadian and soon 10 Million Dollars coming his way

This must be the guy who made the video that started the attack.  Videos have been known to do that.

847328_3527's picture

Samatha Powell and/or Susan Rice repeatedly lied to the American people on the Sunday talk shows it was the video that precipitated the attack.

GunnyG's picture

It is actually Samantha Power, married to another POS named Cass Sunstein

The rebel leader is named Hillary Clinton.
She's not cooperating.
She's protected by US government officials.

Things are looking like in the Grand Scheme of things that the Rothschilds and Soros aren't on the same team in the global power struggle.

NotApplicable's picture

Soros is only rich enough to be on one side. The Rothschilds, OTOH, manage to end up all all sides, as everyone around here knows the value of hedging...

I thought after reading the headline they had caught Hillary.

Debriefing this guy about "what happened" should be carried out by Navy SEALS.
