A suspected terrorist linked to the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that killed four Americans has been captured inside Libya by U.S. forces and currently is en route to the United States, Fox News has learned.
Sources told Fox News that the suspect, Ansar al-Sharia commander Ahmed Abu Khattala, was captured Sunday during a joint U.S. military and law enforcement operation, and will face prosecution in the United States.
President Obama signed off on the mission on Friday night, Fox News is told. Khattala was captured south of Benghazi by U.S. special operators and is on his way to the U.S. aboard a Navy ship.
Also on Friday night, the IRS claimed it “lost” emails from 6 more key officials involved in the Lois Lerner scandal.
Purely coincidentally, I’m sure.
And Obama’s disastrous withdrawal from Iraq has also been in the news recently, much to the chagrin of Hillary Clinton’s publicist.
Then there’s the ongoing VA scandal which shows no signs of dissipating any time soon.
So, color me cynical, but it sure seems like a good time to divert our attention. And trot out what his sycophantic media will call a nice finish to the Benghazi issue and a “win” for their president.
Because, really, he’s never tried that tactic before, right?
