Report: Ex-Gitmo Detainee Led Embassy Attack

The attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi that killed four Americans was the handiwork of those directly tied to the al Qaeda terrorist network, intelligence sources tell Fox News. The revelation comes as the director of the National Counterterrorism Center testified to Congress Wednesday that the Libyan assault was a terrorist attack, but still lacks evidence of “significant advanced planning or coordination.” Fox also reports that Sufyan Ben Qumu, a former Guantanamo detainee who was released to the Libyan government on the grounds that he remained in jail, is suspected of having led the attack.
