Libya approves U.S. operations to get Benghazi suspects
By Barbara Starr

The Libyan government has given the United States "tacit approval" to conduct missions inside Libya to capture suspects involved in the terror attack on the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, a senior U.S. official told CNN.

The official has direct knowledge of the arrangements but declined to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the information.

Approval for action against Benghazi suspects, which was granted in recent weeks, is the same type of agreement that allowed a U.S. raid this past weekend in Tripoli.

In that operation, Army Delta Forces captured Abu Anas al Libi, an al Qaeda operative wanted for his alleged role in the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa.

1. Link Between Abduction and US Operations Approval?

I see two breaking Libya news stories-haven't seen a link as to whether abduction of PM is related to this story

2. We don't know who did this yet, so it's speculation.

 

For all we know it's a plain old coup.
