The attack in Benghazi where 4 Americans were killed, is remembered as one of the most devastating assaults.
Finally, the soldier who committed the attack that occurred five years ago is captured.
He is transported back to the U.S. and will be investigated.
In his attack, the four Americans that were killed are Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, CIA contractors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, and U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.
The whole mission was approved by President Donald Trump and accompanied by the government of Libya. Later on, the official acknowledged that the name of the soldier is Mustafa al-Imam.
Another captured person was the Libyan militia leader Ahmed Abu Khattala who has been on trial since October. He was the leader of the attacks.
The mystery around the question of why the attack was conducted is finally acknowledged. It turns out that Abu Khattala didn’t commit the attack because of a video, but instead because he didn’t want Americans to be present in his country. Actually, he just hated American people.
Federal prosecutor Julieanne Himelstein stated: “The defendant is guilty as sin. He is a stone-cold terrorist.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael C. DiLorenzo claimed that the attack was committed because the leader “wanted the U.S. out” and saw Americans as “the cause of all the world’s problems.”
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula created the video called “The Innocence of Muslims” and was blamed for the whole attack. However, we can see that the motives were totally different. Because of the misunderstanding from Obama administration, Nakoula now lives in a homeless shelter run by First Southern Baptist Church in Buena Park, Calif. He also served some years in jail and was publicly attacked by the White House. Even worse, he received death threats.
Nakoula stated: “I don’t believe in democracy anymore. I don’t think there is such a thing as freedom of speech.”
The whole attack was reconstructed in the Hollywood movie titled “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” who was directed by Michael Bay.
