Benghazi Suspect Arrested And En Route To US, Where He’ll Face Prosecution


DEVELOPING: Fox News has reportedly confirmed a suspected terrorist linked to the 2012 Benghazi terror attack has been captured inside Libya by U.S. forces. The operation, which was conducted on Sunday June 14 by U.S. Special Forces and one FBI agent, resulted in the arrest of Achmed Abu Khatallah before he knew what happened and without incident or casualty.

The Benghazi terror attacks killed four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Khatallah is currently en route to the United States, Rear Admiral John Kirby confirms, on board a Navy ship.

“There were no civilian casualties related to this operation, and all U.S. personnel involved in the operation have safely departed Libya,” Kirby said in a statement.

Sources tell Fox News that the suspect will face prosecution in the United States.

The arrest convienantly comes shortly after the House voted to establish a select committee on Benghazi to investigate the events leading up to the attack and the subsequent coverup. Seven Democrats split with their party to vote alongside Republicans to set up the select committee, which is chaired by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), a former prosecutor in the Palmetto State.

While most Democrats claim the investigation is a political witch hunt, a majority of Americans believe President Obama and Hillary Clinton intentionally lied to the public about the Benghazi terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2012.

State Department official Sean Smith, and CIA contractors and former U.S. Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were also killed during their heroic attempt to protect the ambassador during the attack.
