WASHINGTON — After the U.S. captured a key suspect in the 2012 Benghazi consulate attacks on the anniversary of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil, Libya criticized the secret raid to nab Ahmed Abu Khatallah.
Reuters reported that Libya called the action a violation of Libyan sovereignty. That did not faze U.S. President Barack Obama, who authorized the raid to capture Khatallah.
Khatallah was the apparent leader behind the attacks, where U.S. ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens was murdered along with three other Americans. Obama and his administration, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton included, are under scrutiny for covering up the details of the attacks and why no immediate help was sent to the besieged consulate compound for hours.
