The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) called on the Obama administration to fully interrogate suspected Benghazi attack planner Ahmed Abu Khatallah before he is prosecuted for any crimes.
Rep. Howard "Buck" McKeon (R., Calif.), in a statement issued shortly after Khatallah’s capture was announced, said "it is vital that Khatallah be fully interrogated" about the deadly terror attack that killed four Americans "before any prosecution process begins."
Khatallah could have vital information about the other terrorists who launched an attack on the U.S. compound in Libya.
"This act of terrorism was not committed by one man alone—all the perpetrators deserve to be brought to justice and we need as much intelligence as possible regarding the terrorist networks now spreading across Libya," McKeon said. "For that reason, and to better protect the United States from future attacks, it is vital that we learn all we can from him before we read him his rights."
