WASHINGTON — So much for being a Nobel Peace Prize winner! U.S. President Barack Obama’s latest anti-terrorism efforts have only increased anti-American animosity in an unstable Middle East.
Reuters reported that a U.S. special operations team captured al-Qaeda terrorist mastermind Nazih al-Ragye, known by the cover name Abu Anas al-Liby.
He is being held off-shore on an American ship in the Mediterranean Sea. al-Ragye is suspected to be involved in the 1998 bombings of American embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, which killed 224 civilians.
His supporters have called for kidnapping American civilians and attacking gas pipelines and other targets as revenge for their leader’s capture. He was caught in the city of Tripoli and he had a $5 million bounty to help capture him, issued by the FBI.
