US Seizes Key Militant in Benghazi Attack

Special Operations Forces Capture Militant Instrumental in Benghazi Attack Officials US Seizes Key Militant in Benghazi Attack

USA officials announced on Monday that American commandos had captured a suspected mastermind of the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans.

In his opening statement, federal prosecutor John Crabb said Khatallah hates America "with a vengeance" and played a leading role in organizing the September 11, 2012, attack on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

Mustafa al Imam appeared on video obtained by the USA government at one of the two sites of the attack, and he also likely operated under different aliases, an administration official told CNN.

US Special Operation Forces captured the militant - Mustafa al-Imam - in Libya in the past few days, officials said.

US officials have said very little about the details of the raid.

"The United States will continue to support our Libyan partners to ensure that [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] and other terrorist groups do not use Libya as a safe haven for attacks against United States citizens or interests, Libyans, and others", Trump's statement said, stressing that he plans to pursue the other "perpetrators of the heinous attacks".

The attackers later fired mortar rounds at a Central Intelligence Agency building, killing two former Navy Seals.

In 2013, the US arrested another suspected plotter, Ahmed Abu Khattala, whose trial in federal district court in Washington begins next month. The US took nearly two years to capture Ahmed Abu Khattala for his role in the Benghazi attack, even though Abu Khattala didn't bother to hide at all.

It's doubtful it will be fast enough to satisfy former Marine Mark Geist, one of the survivors of the Benghazi attack.

The US government has video footage of Al Imam present at one of the two sites of the attacks although it's unclear whether the video shows Al Imam at the consulate or the annex.

Prosecutors said Mr al-Imam was in the process of being transported to the US. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U.S. would "spare no effort" to ensure al-Imam is held accountable.

Upon arrival to the US, Imam will be presented before a federal judge in Washington, DC, according to the justice department. Earlier this month, another man accused in Benghazi, Ahmed Abu Khattala, went on trial in federal court.
