Main Libya Attack Suspect Unconcerned

One of the alleged masterminds behind the attack on the Libyan compound that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens says Libya’s army is “chicken” and continues to go about his day-to-day business. Though Libya has called Ahmed Abu Khattala commander of the attack, he tells The New York Times that he hasn’t even been questioned about it. Abu Khattala asserts that the compound guards provoked a peaceful demonstration by shooting at protesters and insists he wasn’t part of the attack. He also accused U.S. leaders of “playing with the emotions of the American people” and “using the consulate attack just to gather votes for their elections.”
