Poe Statement On Capture Of Benghazi Terrorist--Ahmed Abu Khattala
Our elite Special Operations forces have located and captured one of the suspected ringleaders of the terrorist attack in Benghazi. Ahmed Abu Khattala was able to roam free for far too long, even conducting interviews with an American news outlet at a café in Benghazi. The failure to bring any of the killers to justice until now has made the United States appear weak and helped to advance the narrative that attacks against the United States will go unpunished.
Khattala’s capture and interrogation should shed light on what happened that night in Benghazi, as there is still much we don’t know. There are still other terrorists at large and they should also be brought to justice as soon as possible. Justice demands that we capture all of the outlaws, because justice is what we do in this country.
