One of the mysteries is why it took so long to capture one of the leaders of the attack. Mr. Riddle pointed out, “this man has been in plain sight. Not only that, but our intelligence people have been tracking him for some time. . .this capture was more a case of political opportunism than a military breakthrough. The evidence suggests that we have had the ability to get him for some time, but now with Obama's ratings on Foreign Affairs dipping below 40% it became a necessity.”
He also correctly identified the upcoming trial as that of a terrorist not a common criminal. Among other things he pointed out that Ahmed Abu Khatallah is not an American citizen and does not deserve special treatment, such as a civilian trial.
