FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Intel Sources Say Libya Attack Tied to Al Qaeda and Ex-Gitmo Detainee Sufyan Ben Qumu
On tonight's Special Report, Bret Baier reported on an exclusive breaking news alert: intelligence sources are convinced the Mideast attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was directly tied to Al Qaeda.
Catherine Herridge reported that they believe that Sufyan Ben Qumu (whose name has also been transliterated as Sofiane Ibrahim Gammu) was likely involved in the attack, and even may have led the attack on the consulate.
Qumu - a Libyan - was released from the US prison at
Guantanamo Bay in 2007 and transferred to Libyan custody under the condition that he would be kept in jail. He wasn't.
According to his Gitmo files, he was also tied to 9/11 financiers, and his alias is "found on a list of probable Al Qaeda personnel receiving monthly stipends and family support."
