This is some pretty interestingl video, and it illustrates one thing President Obama has done fairly well: Catching and killing bad guys.
What you’ll see below is U.S. operatives scooping up a terrorist suspect, Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, after as he returned to his family’s home in Tripoli after dawn prayers October 5.
According to the Washington Post, which obtained the video:
A white van trailing Ruqai pulled alongside his car. Then at least three men, with guns drawn, jumped out of the van as another car blocked Ruqai’s escape and a third vehicle idled down the street.
The men yanked Ruqai, also known as Anas al-Libi, out of his car and threw him in the van, according to a video of the abduction obtained by The Washington Post. The video, from a closed circuit camera in the neighborhood, provides a rare glimpse of a U.S. covert operation and captures some of the bewildered reaction in Ruqai’s home once he had disappeared.
And so now he’s sitting in jail on his Anas.
