A man suspected of involvement in the September attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi is being held in Libya, according to two sources who have spoken with CNN.
Both sources confirmed the man's name as Faraj al-Shibli (also spelled Chalabi). One of the sources, who has been briefed on the arrest by Western intelligence officials, said al-Shibli was detained within the past two days and had recently returned from a trip to Pakistan.
A Libyan source also confirmed that al-Shibli was in custody in the north African nation. The FBI was given direct access to him, and it interviewed him recently in the presence of Libyan authorities, according to the Libyan source.
Anderson Cooper interviews Sebastian Junger about his film that remembers fearless photojournalist Tim Hetherington who was killed in Misrata, Libya in 2011. "Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington" will air on HBO in April.
Fran Townsend and Jake Tapper discuss Secretary Clinton's testimony before Congress on the Benghazi attack.
The past year brought historic changes, democratic milestones, devastating tragedies, and acts of heroism that will never be forgotten.
In 2012 Anderson traveled across the country and around the world seeking the truth. He met people who were struggling against seemingly insurmountable odds: Syrian refugees, gunshot victims in Colorado, New Yorkers who lost everything they had, widows facing a harsh new reality.
There were crimes that divided communities and launched important conversations about discrimination and ethics. In some cases, justice was served. Convicted of child sex abuse, Jerry Sandusky will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Questions remain about the mixed messages over who omitted al Qaeda from Amb. Susan Rice's talking points on the consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya
Fran Townsend and Reuel Marc Gerecht discuss the mistaken statements from the CIA on the Benghazi attack talking points.
After meeting with Ambassador Susan Rice, Sen. Kelly Ayotte says she would hold the secretary of state nomination if Rice is chosen by President Obama.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte, one of the Republicans harshly critical of Ambassador Susan Rice, described Rice's initial characterization of the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya as misleading, but stopped short of calling the remarks intentionally so.
"Certainly she misled the American public," Ayotte said in an interview to run Tuesday on AC360. "I think that she would say that. She'd have to say that because she began our meeting today admitting that the representations about the video and the protests were wrong, and the impression left [for] the American people was misleading."
To the question of whether the comments were intentionally misleading, Ayotte continued, "I don't know that I am in a position to question [Rice's] motives, but its deeply troubling to me that someone of that important position would go on every major news network knowing that she had obviously previously reviewed other classified reports that left a different impression with the omission of the important reference to Al Qaeda."
Fran Townsend tells Anderson that it is a "stretch to say the president was lying." She adds, "There was clearly some indication early on that this was in fact a terrorist attack, and they were sorting through it."
